I replaced all four discs with new drives, reinstalled the firmware from the web interface, no joy. The install process completes, clicking on the link to take me to the web interface restarts the quick install process. No settings are saved. Clean drives right out of the box, listed on the compatibility list. Install fails to complete even thought the web page tells me that it succeeded.
There is no Public share on the NAS. It appears that the firmware upgrade completely hosed the system. No shares were created.
The manual update process fails as uploading the image zip file fails. The NAS will not hold the connection long enough to transfer a file; it fails after transferring 9%.
Next step is a factory reset.
I can't believe that a simple firmware upgrade has completely hosed the NAS...I wonder if these guys ever test in real world settings?
