Home NAS solution please.

Recommended Posts

RaidZ huh? Neat!

 

So thanks to freenas, you're both on ZFS, have 2 hot spares, and the money you saved on a good NAS box clearly went to multiple drives (do you have 4? 2 in use, 2 spare?)

 

Yeah after your suggestions and doing some research RaidZ2 worked out best and with the money saving I went with 4x 2TB WD Red drives. RaidZ2 uses all 4 drives but you only get 4TB worth of space due to the backups it puts in place in case 2 drives fail.

I'd have gone with RaidZ1 personally, because I'm home a lot of the time, so I'm likely to notice a failed drive within a day or two.

The chances of having 2 drives fail before I notice and can pop out for a new drive are minimal. Also, thats a lot of wasted space :P

 

However, NICE choice on the red drives. So few people bother. They're enterprise level hardware, with simpler firmware, and without the long term warranty support (which is why they're cheaper). Why wouldnt you?!

your wifi and wired cards are different in terms of settings.

Use your router as the DNS, not google.

It sounds like you had DHCP enabled on the router, rather than setting static IP's.

 

Hmm... Unidentified Network? You should see your SSID (wireless name) at least!

Its a hard one to diagnose without seeing it.

 

can I get an IPCONFIG /all from you please?

 

<Windows key>+<R>

cmd <enter>

ipconfig /all <enter>

 

get that on here if you can, and I'll have a look at all your network settings. Somethings skewiff in there.

 

 

Also, if you haven't, reboot your modem\router.

 

 

EDIT: bet you're glad now that you have an actual microserver and not a NAS box, imagine trying to troubleshoot this when you cant configure it without a working web interface, lol. Impossible.

Unless ive missed something, your wifi adaptor isnt showing up at all?

 

If you dont use IPv6, disable that. Its configured correctly, but unneeded usually.

 

Change those DNS servers to 192.168.0.1, and leave 2ndary blank. see how you go.
