View Full Version : need help with my DVIX M4000
I have a little problem with my M4000 effectively I try to connect my M4000 to a Maxtor Sharde Server to read on the DVIX the file store on my maxtor
and I can't find the right way to do this.
my installation is :
Maxtor-----rj45-->router<------rj45----- DVIX 4000
I have a KISS DP558 connect to my router too so I can read file from the file on maxtor by the Kiss platine but not by the DVIX 4000.
(But that mean that I can't change my Kiss any more if I want to see the file on my maxtor)
Did someone have the same problem or a solution
Thank's for our help
(Sorry for my poor english but I am french lol)
It should work using SMB/Simple file sharing with TViX.
You must enter the IP Address assigned to Maxtor as IP SERVER.
when I do that I have the following message
"Impossible to connect the drive"
I dont understad why
is it because on the maxtor the file are ot in a public directory ?
I just received my 4000P last thursday and I have had similar problems, fortunately managed to solve them.
My NAS is a windows XP pro based mini-itx board, so not quite the same as yours, but I'll explain anyway:
There are three things that need to be correct before you will see the share:
1- Samba protocol and IP adress of the server correctly filled in on 4000P (obvious)
2- Your NAS rights have to be set to allow a 'guest' (or user 'tvixhd1' with password 'tvixhd1') read access
3- The directory you want to share has to have the same share-name as the 'server' item on the 4000P. Use 'tvixhd1' or 'tvixhd2' etc. This is important and is what took me the most time before I had it correct.
If there is a firewall in the NAS, switch it of for the experiments, but it should work with the firewall active
well well well.....
I still trying but nothing working
I define an user tvixhd1 on the maxtor password tvixhd1
the link on my computer is \\HDD-RESEAUX\tvixhd1
I try tu put the same name on the server name in the TVIX setup and I put the IP adress on server IP
and it still not working arghhhhhh
I am totaly lost now
You can try to share a directory on your PC (windows XP) like I did.
That should work the way I discribed. At least it would give you a start...
One more possibility. Use a static IP adress on your Tvix instead of the default DHCP.
If it's a Maxtor Shared Storage (or MSS+) you have and not the Maxtor Shared Storage II you can install OpenMSS, and enable NFS instead.
Check this thread:
You can skip the parts about creating the NFS path /tvixhd1 and just export any share, and then enter the corresponding part in the Tvix.
exportfs -io rw,no_root_squash ip.of..the.tvix/24:/shares/mss-hdd/sharename
and in the Tvix enter shares/mss-hdd/sharename
Note that it does not begin with /
Note again: it requires changing MSS software to OpenMSS. See the same site.
Hello thank's for all your answer
I will try this this week if i have time
I effectively have MSS first version but my unix knowlege is very bad
but I am going to try to understand all of this
And I will tell you if i have succed or not
Thank's a lot
Well I tried to do what you say but I have a little problem
I have install OPENMSS
but I have some trouble see the log :
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
$ exportfs -io rw,no_root_squash 192.168.2.6 /24:/shares/mss-hdd/tvixhd1
Invalid exporting option: 192.168.2.6
exportfs: could not open /var/lib/nfs/etab for locking
exportfs: can't lock /var/lib/nfs/etab for writing
exportfs: could not open /var/lib/nfs/xtab for locking
exportfs: can't lock /var/lib/nfs/xtab for writing
What did I make wrong???Did I have something else to install?
thank's for your help
It is WORKINNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGG
yes thank you very mutch for your help
I am HAPPYYYYYYYYYY :lol:
but just a last question
did the export is still valid if I turn off my MSS HD
and if it's not the case dd I have a solution to have my export valid after turning off my maxtor
Thank you for all
I suggest you register at openmss.org for further discussions of the MSS.
As a short answer however: no the export is gone after reboot.
You need to enter the same commands in /opt/etc/init.d/S99local which is run last at restart.
