Netgear Readynas RND-2150
Have just bought a netgear readynas RND-2150 to use as a second backup and also to store media files e.g video/music/photos so that I can free up a bit of space on our DC.
Stupidly I didnt read all the features so this model doesnt have AD intergration. I would rather not replace the item as money is tight, so is there any way in making the device secure so that not any old tom/dick/harry can plug into network and access files? I know the device has built software to add users but this would take forever to add all staff members, and I dont really want them to be prompted to give username/password etc.
I know I am probably asking a bit much but just thought someone might have a clever solution. Before anyone suggests I cant lock down network switches to disable randoms plugin in.
Thanks in advance.

Does it allow you to import a CSV list of users? If it does then that might get you started, then it would just be a case of keeping it up to date with new users. Maybe write a script that updates passwords everynight?
Just a thought.

Have done that now but with no passwords (as i obvously dont know ad passwords) Do you think that is safe enough for a share? Its been hidden from normal access, and only shows up through dfs if you have logged into the domain. Then access to that folder is purely through usernames.
