TR-002 compatibility with Fritzbox

The idea was:
Connect a QNAP-DAS (Direct-attached Storage) with RAID1 to a Fritzbox.
This way would have my own fail-save NAS via Fritzbox VPN.

The problem is: it does not work :-(

My configuration is as follows:
TR-002, FW v1.1.0
2 * 4TB WD NAS-HDD
Filesystem NTFS

All works fine with a computer attached to the TR-002, the problem starts,
if I connect the TR-002 to my Fritzbox 7430.

Is this a know issue? Is it an TR-002 or rather a Fritzbox-issue?

P.S.:
The strange thing is: the Fritzbox knowledge base tells me, only 4TB devices are
compatible, but I have no problems with a single disk of 5 TB, with NTFS-Filesystem.

followup:
Unfortunatly it does not matter, if the mode switch at the back is on "RAID1" or "Software Controlled"

could be also a great question for a firtzbox forum

if the tr002 works fine on other devices, it might be specific to the fritzbox

Hi,

I was able to cure the issue, due to the fact that I have as well a linux machine available:
The strange thing was, I was able to connect to the device under Windows 7 but not under Linux (Ubuntu 20.04).
I started gparted under Linux to investigate the issue, gparted reported an issue on the GPT (GUID Partition Table),
I created a new GPT by means of gparted and re-formatted the RAID1-group (mode switch on the back of the TR-002
was on position RAID1).
Now I can make contact to the device attached to the Fritzbox :)
