    JBOD always makes me laugh.

    Right guys, we need a super duper technical name for this system we have devised. Something cool and catchy, preferably something we can use with an acronym... How about JBOD - sounds technical but actually isn't!

    Whatever you consider, check the user forums on the supplier websites for disgruntled customers.
    We are looking to do a similar thing - do you have a link to the user forums for buffalo?

    According to this It should work fine if set up as a client.

    I just want to check

    I can't find a link to the Buffalo forum I was referring to, but the online help in the TS PRO web interface says that only mixed-mode domains are supported (go to page with all the domain settings in the web UI and click on the help icon top right). I confirmed this with Buffalo tech support. Having said all that, I did manage to make it work in the way described in the Buffalo KB article that you posted.

    This page may also be of interest.

    EDIT: Here is the same sort of problem on the Iomega forums. Interestingly, the Iomega people at InfoSec show claimed that their box and the TS PRO are basically the same.

    Try freenas first:

    www.freenas.org

    Its open source, has great support, and performs better than some as the off the shelf stuff. If it does not do what you first want then you have not lost anything.

    Re: NAS Devices - What shall I get??

    Hi Guys,

    I've looked at the freenas and it looks good and want to try it out on a spare machine.

    How do you go about installing in an easiest possible manner. Not clued up on Linux too much so looking for a step-by-step instructions if possible.

    BTW i have downloaded the iso file from their website. Am I correct in that i should burn this to a CD and install it on the machine??


    TIA,

    Ash.

    Re: NAS Devices - What shall I get??

    Yes, just stick it in and it installs just like any other OS (install screens asking you questions like IP address, machine name etc).
    If it asks you about partitioning just leave it as the defaults.
    Once installed it'll just be a case of browsing to it and configuring through its webbased config.

    BTW thats the beauty of most pre-built *nix things these days, they always have a install setup and configure through a web page, (some major settings might be done by typing something like "setup" into the CLI). Most are very well documented aswell - read the manual! (I know its not a man thing to do!)
