  1. Sorry for the lack of reply, very busy weekend and start to the week. My resolution was to update to 5.2, but it was far from straightforward. When I updated to 5.2, it appeared to work fine, but as soon as I restarted the NAS, the NAS dropped completely from the network, with no IP or anything. So I followed the following thread, in particular, this post - http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=38545#p38545 It's now working, but I've not tried a reboot the NAS to see if the IP stays, as I don't have the time to tinker if it doesn't at the moment. So I'm going to keep checking
  2. Tried that one aswell. Even tried restoring an older backup of the settings. It's very frustrating, as I'm sure you can imagine and greatly appreciate your continued help! If only it were easier to post screenshots on this forum aswell!
  3. They are indeed, all listed, checked and double checked permissions, everything appears exactly as it should do. Even on the power off, I pulled the power cord out to ensure a totally fresh start.
  4. Indeed I have, twice so far, along with reboots aswell. No stone had gone unturned, but no luck...
  5. I have, yes. Was one of the first things I tried, as thought it might be DNS relaxed. But that didn't work. I'm wondering if it's worth resetting or similar, as long as the data stays intact. Just as an additional note, another NAS backs up to this NAS through Backup and Restore and it's saying my server is offline?
  6. Sorry, yes I did, but same error "Network Error - Windows cannot access \\DiskStation" - Error code: 0x80070035 - The network path was not found.
  7. That was one of the first things I checked, as this was my concern. All shares are correct and the relevant tick boxes are ticked. I even tried disabling the Windows file service and restarting it, but no good. It's so frustrating and I bet it's something simple that I've overlooked, but I've spent about 4 hours trying different things, but nothing appears to work... Anything else I can try?
  8. I'm on a workgroup and the machines and NAS are on the same workgroup. I can log into the web interface fine, but as I'm not able to navigate to the NAS through explorer, I'm unable to map or see any of the drives on the NAS. The connection fails at the first step, just connecting to the NAS. Any ideas?
  9. Further update, I've also followed this guide - http://forum.synology.com/wiki/index.ph ... work_drive Still no luck. Grrrr....
  10. Just wanted to add, I've been through various forums and tried changing the workgroup along with the netBIOS setting for ipv4, but still no luck. Pinging the DNS name gives the correct IP and it does respond. Also, using Synology Assistant, when mapping a network drive, I get an error, "The network path was not found.(53)". I've turned off all security (AV and Firewalls), but still no success. Apple products appear to connect fine, just Windows... I'm guessing it's a setting somewhere, but can't see it anywhere, or something Windows is caching from 5.0?
  11. I've just updated from Nanoboot 5.0.3.2 running DSM 5.0-4528 to XPEnoboot 5.1-5055.1 and DSM 5.1-5055. Everything appeared to go well, settings are all still present and correct, but when trying to access the shares or even the DiskStation through the network (via name or IP) through any of my Windows machines, Windows states "Windows cannot access \\DiskStation". I tried the diagnose through the prompts, which it advises "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". I'm therefore thinking a setting has changed with the update? Anyone any ideas what may be causing this?
  12. Well, I managed to resolve the issue and regain full access. Left it running a while, rebooted etc and everything is great. Updated to 5.1 and sticking with that for the time being, as 5.2 appears to drop the network connection. Thanks again to everyone for their help!
  13. Thanks for the pointer, I've found the following; DiskStation> du -ks * 796 bin 0 core 96 dev 6184 etc 5768 etc.defaults 4 initrd 149480 lib 5276 lib64 4 lost+found 4 mnt 12 proc 8 root 8 run 5288 sbin 0 sys 376 tmp 338176 usr 1880304 var 156 var.defaults 4 volume1 4 volumeUSB1 4 volumeUSB2 Then; DiskStation> cd /var DiskStation> du -ks * 4 db 4 empty 76 lib 8 lock 1879636 log 12 net-snmp 308 packages 12 quarantine 188 run 12 services
  14. Apologies for the straightforward question, but how would I find them and how would I then delete them?
  15. Quick update - I tried a reboot to see if that resolved the login issues and now the drives don't appear to be mounting, so I've now lost all storage This is all I see: Any ideas?
  16. Great news, I've now got root access again! So a step in the right direction. What is my next best step? I'm assuming something to do with XPENOboot? I'm currently using Nanoboot 5.0.3.2 and running DSM 5.0-4528. I'd like to update to a more recent version, but keep all my files and setting intact. How am I best to go about this? FYI - I'm unable to log into the web interface, with an error of "You cannot login to the system because the disk space is full currently. Please restart the system and try again". Again all help appreciated and the help so far has been brilliant
  17. Is that good or bad news on the *boot? Anyone else with any ideas of what I can do?
  18. Anyone any ideas or suggestions, as I'm stuck at the moment... Nearly 100 views, I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction? Can I save the data on the drives if I build a new XPEnology NAS with the spare N54L I have? Any suggestions / ideas more than welcome!!
  19. Hi all, I'm after some assistance, as I'm in a bit of a situation on a barebones N54L running from an internal USB. 1. I don't seem to be able to access the server to run updates, as the root password no longer appears to work after the last update, mentioned here -http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5051 Therefore, still running an older version that I'd like to update 2. When trying to log into the web interface, or network shares with my account, I get an error message. Through the web interface, it's "You cannot log into the system the disk space is full currently. P
  20. Hmmm, that's strange as I didn't enter a password anywhere during the major update, unless I missed it? Exactly when would the prompt have been? Perhaps there's no password? Hmmm Otherwise, it's a major rollback then a major update?
  21. So am I right in thinking the root password never changes from my original password from day one and used when completing minor or major updates? Or is it set when major updates are installed?
  22. I've just updated from 4493 Update 5 to 4493 Update 7. I then updated to 4528, all with no problems. However, I've just tried to update to 4528 Update 2 and when logging in with SSH, the root password is no longer working. I know what the password is, as 15 minutes ago I did the exact same process to update from 4493 Update 5 to 4493 Update 7 and that worked without any issues. Can anyone please help? I'm also using Nanoboot 5.0.3.2 if that info is need on a HP N54L running from USB as bare bones.
