QNAP TS-212 – How to save RAID settings from telnet

Scenario = you have wrongly initialize a new HDD a single disk but you would like to be added as RAID1 disk.

QNap support team suggested to remove all partition and reboot NAS

This should be done connecting the second disk to a computer, delete volume and partition, and connect disk back into the NAS, which is quite boring.

Here is how to delete partition table from telnet:

  1. Open telnet
  2. Login as admin
  3. Check which disk is used as RAID to avoid a “wrong” delete
    mdadm –detail /dev/md0

    Number   Major   Minor   RaidDevice State
       0       0        0        0      removed
       1       8        3        1      active sync  /dev/sda3

  4. So we need to clean the /dev/sdb partitions
    fdisk -l /dev/sdb

    Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1               1          66      530125   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb2              67         132      530142   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb3             133      121538   975193693   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb4          121539      121600      498012   83  Linux


  5. Dismount the volume before starting the work
    umount /dev/sdb3
  6. So we have 4 partition, type the follow to enter in fdisk mode
    fdisk /dev/sdb
  7. If you need help type “m”
  8. List all partition as above, type “p
    Command (m for help): p

    Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1               1          66      530125   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb2              67         132      530142   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb3             133      121538   975193693   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb4          121539      121600      498012   83  Linux

  9. Press “p” to delete partitions and the number of partition to delete

    Command (m for help): d
    Partition number (1-4): 1

    Command (m for help): d
    Partition number (1-4): 2

    Command (m for help): d
    Partition number (1-4): 3

    Command (m for help): d
    Partition number (1-4): 4

  10. Print all partitions of the disk with “p"
    Command (m for help): p

    Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

  11. Save the changes with “w
  12. You need to save RAID settings information in the /etc/config/raidtab file
  13. The easy way to save RAID configuration is this:
    more /etc/config/raidtab
    cp /etc/config/raidtab /share/Public 
  14. Change raidtab file like this one

    raiddev /dev/md0
            raid-level      1
            nr-raid-disks   2
            nr-spare-disks  0
            chunk-size      4
            persistent-superblock   1
            device  /dev/sda3
            raid-disk       0
            device  /dev/sdb3
            raid-disk       1

  15. save and copy back to original location
    cp raidtab /etc/config
    more /etc/config/raidtab
  16. Change also /etc/storage.conf file
    Set it only for RAID volume and clear all reference for single volume

    [VOLUME 1]
    device name = /dev/md0
    raid level = 1
    raid disks = 1,0
    spare raid disks =
    status = 0
    record_time = Thu Jul 19 22:53:14 2012

    filesystem = 104
    Available Disk = 2

  17. Reboot the NAS & Check if RAID was rebuilt correctly

WD TV Live – Firmware v1.04.17

The new official WD TV Live firmware support keyboard, so you could buy an Arc Keyboard and plug it in!!! 🙂

Download original firmware

If you use WDLXTV firmware , I suggest to enable in the “S00custom-options” file the following line:

  • config_tool -c AUTORES=ON
  • config_tool -c WDLXTV_CENSUS=ON

You should also keep the following files in the pendrive used to flash the WDTV Live:

  • smb.conf = configure Samba server to access share using username
  • net.mounts = auto-mounting of network shares (SMB, NFS, etc.)

WD TV Live – New firmware + Communites


  • CPU = Sigma Design SMP-8655AD
  • Clock CPU = 500Mhz
  • Flash = 128 MByte
  • RAM = 512MByte DRAM





WDLXTV-Live Firmware

WDLXTV-Live is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WD TV Live. It is based off of the 1.02.21 firmware, but with many extra features. This is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. It enables a wide range of extra functionality which is missing from the official firmware, such as bittorrent, webserver, NZB, SSH, FTP, NFS, etc.

Different Version

  • Normal = The Normal version requires Flashing the Firmware into the WDTV Live
  • Minimal = The Minimal version is the same as the Normal version, but without php, python, perl, nzbget, deluge, lighttpd
  • Ext3 = This version is used for testing purposes. It is identical to the normal flashed version. The main difference is that ext3-boot-live is pivoted into and run directly off your external device. This means ext3-boot-live gives you full read/write permissions.

To flash firmware
Place wdtvlive.bin on a memory stick along with wdtvlive.ver and insert it into your WDTV Live.
When asked if you want to upgrade your firmware, say yes.
The WDTV Live will reboot and after several minutes the whole flashing process will complete and reboot again.
Upon successful flash you will see WDLXTV_Live in the about screen of system settings.
The firmware no longer needs to be on anything attached to the WDTV Live.
Downgrade instructions are always provided at the bottom of the README which is included in every release’s zip.

File System compare – Fat32, EXT2, EXT3

All information needed to compare FAT32, NTFS, EXT2 and EXT3 file system are available at Wikipedia – Comparison of file systems
This is really useful to choose the better file system for the NAS because it’s OS-free and depends only by the firmware capability: actually, it can support FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3.

According to the wikipedia article, the best one is the EXT3 because it can easily recover from a power failure thanks to the journal.

So, I need to find a wait to backup the whole NAS and conver both disks to EXT3… 🙂

Olympus µ 1030 SW – Firmware upgrade

Latest v1.1 firmware release on 16 April 2008 enables the following features:

  • The new version supports movie recording on 4 GB and higher microSDHC compatible cards.
  • The new version enables camera continuously record movies with VGA quality (640 x 480) 30 fps up to the capacity of the card, when using an xD-Picture Card TypeM+ or TypeH.

Please note that:

  • microSD High Capacity card (> 4 Gb) could be used only with latest v1.1 firmware
  • Video length remains fixed using microSD HC instead of xD-Picture Card:
    • 640 x 480 @ 30 fps – Recording time: 10 seconds
    • 320 x 240 @ 15 fps – Recording time: 29 minutes

There are online instruction or PDF guide with all steps described on how to upgrade the camera firmware:

There isn’t an “official way” to check on the camera which firmware version is installed.
Only Olympus Master Studio could check it and update to latest version.
However, you could perform one of the following tests directly on the camera without the PC program:

  • Using a MicroSD HC Card = Check if the camera is able to use all Gb of the card
  • Using an xD-Picture Card = Try to make a video longer than 10 seconds @ VGA / 30 fps

If at least one of the 2 tests works fine: you have latest v1.1 firmware installed for sure! 🙂
