Two parts to this note.

1. I called Buffalo Support to obtain the default settings for a RAID5 setup on the Buffalo Terastation TS-XL/5S only to be told they were not allowed to divulge these details, it was like being denied the default username/password combination on a new router! Then they stated they didn't know these details even though they are the manufacturer!

2. Does anyone know the default parameters, i.e. Standard Block Size - I think it is 512K, the parity, the parity offset, synchronous or asynchronous - just basically the parameters you would get if you just seeleced the defaults when creatign a RIAD5 array.

I simply need to rebuild a virtual array using R-Studio as my TeraStation died .... on so painful!

Many thanks for any help.

I think, the device uses https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdadm

With mdadm you do not need any paramter to assemble an old raid.

maybe its the same as LS-QVL
