Hi.

I am new to this whole NAS thing, but I was wondering if anyone could help me connecting and sharing multible USB harddrives. I have found this guide that should do it:

http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Con ... _a_USB_hub

I have been able to telnet to my device, but am unable to find the murasaki folder and therefore complete the guide. Can anyone assist. Do i need to install another firmware or?

Hi!

That article is related to an older version of linkstation with a completely different hardware.

As far as I know LS-CHLv2 only supports one external USB device, and does not support external hubs. I haven't tested it personally, though.

It could be that the kernel is not configured properly. Accourding to an old gentoo-user message CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN has to be set to YES.

I have success with uImage-2.6.27.4 on a LS-CHLv1.

JBOD (used at a IB-3218StU-B) only works if an USB 2.0 hub is connected inbetween.

I have succesfully been able to mount two drives using a USB hub and two separate disks and then telnet to the NAS drive and just using the mount command to mount the devices. I myself have just purchased the IB-3218StU-B but currently only one disk is mounted.

Lets see if it is not possible to mount both hard drives when the time comes to expand.

Is there someone who has a 2.6.22.18 kernel with CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN enabled?

by hand you can mount more than one disk. example:

mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usbdisk2

sdc1 = second drive

you have to create the dir "usbdisk2" before you can mount.

I fount a file named "nas_feature". In this file you can find an entry named MAX_USBDISK_NUM = 1. I have try´d to change this entry to 2 but after reboot the file will create new and my change are lost.

I think we have to find the script that create the file nas_feature and change it.

Anyone any idee where I can find the script?

thanks

febo

This is read from the "non volatile flash" of the box.
You can use "dumpnf" to see all the settings of the nf.
I will not explain how to set this values because too
much noobies will then try to manipulate the nf and will
kill their boxes. But if you are smart enough you will find
the answer yourself. ;-)

Do a "grep -r " in /etc and look for the script which generates the
error message.
I am running firmware 1.24 and cannot find any reference to "key named".
A "grep -r MAX_USBDISK_NUM *" locates the usb-buffalo.hotplug script
which does NOT contain this error message.
A brief look at the script gave me the impression as if it should be able
to handle more than one USB device if the environment variable is greater
1.
