Ts 251+ is my model...
I just did it today. :lol:
The beauty of Linux is that everything is a file in the file system. My USB HDD was connected as "/share/external/DEV3304_1". What I did in SSH was:
1) Format the external USB HDD in format Ext4 via Web GUI
2) mkdir /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/ext_drive
3) mkdir /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr
4) mount /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr /share/CACHEDEV1/ext_drive
5) Use the Web GUI to create a Share, say "USBhdd" and use manual path "/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/ext_drive"
6) The USBhdd is selectable in the Surveillance Station advance setting screen and recording is now done in external USB. :lol:

4) mount /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr /share/CACHEDEV1/ext_drive
Isn't that transient / won't it disappear at the next reboot?
TS-431+ as primary storage and media server and a bunch of IP cams under Surveillance Station.

2) mkdir /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/ext_drive
Was "/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/" already present? It's not there on mine, and I don't think you can run the above mkdir unless it's already there. Did you create it first, then sub-directory "ext_drive"?

Edit: Oh, I see, according to this, on my model I should be using MD0_DATA:
HDA_DATA ... first single HDD storage volume of a legacy or "Home" feature class NAS.
MD0_DATA ... first RAID storage volume of a legacy or "Home" feature class NAS.
CACHDEV1_DATA .... first storage volume on a stroage pool on a current "SMB" feature class NAS.

So, running into a problem with the next step. On mine, after running:

Code: Select all

mkdir /share/MD0_DATA/ext_drive
mkdir /share/external/sdr1/qvr
the next step would be:

Code: Select all

mount /share/external/sdr1/qvr /share/MD0_DATA/ext_drive
But, I get the probably obvious error:

Code: Select all

mount: /share/external/sdr1/qvr is not a block device.
Was there a mistake in the urukhai's mount instruction, or am I missing something?

Hi All, I hope everyone's keeping safe and well.

Can anyone please tell me step by step how to do this on a TS-212P? (I got stuck after formating the drive to be honest).

Thank you all

Nick
