Just ran the BIOS update on the system. The update was successful, but I ran into a small issue. I'll admit that the problem was probably my own fault (by previously changing certain BIOS / ME settings)
, but I just wanted to give you a heads up on how to fix the issue if it happens to you.
After applying the bios update and unplugging/restarting the system, I noticed that the primary network interface was not accessible. If this happens to you, here are the steps to fix it:
Log into the Console of your NAS (with a monitor and USB keyboard) with your Admin account.
- Code: Select all
ifconfig | more
You should see 3 interfaces: eth0, eth1 and l0.
If you only see 2 (eth1 and l0), follow the steps below:
Restart your system and press F2 when the system prompts you to enter BIOS settings.
Select the Chipset Menu (I think that's what it's called), and then select ME Subsystem.
You shoud see an option to allow you to reset the ME Subsystem. Change that option to Enabled
Save changes and restart. During the startup, you will be prompted if you want to reset the ME Subsystem. Select Yes
Your primary network interface sould be working again once the system boots.
