Deployment Notes / Limitations:
- After deleting a volume and creating a new one the old volume may still show up until after a reboot.
- WOL will not be supported on 3220/4220 at this time for 10GbE. Use 1GbE port for WOL.
- Disk failure on the 3220 and 4220 will not show LED failure for the exact drive that has failed, use local web admin page for disk failure information.
- Deleting volume with ReadyNAS Vault enabled will show error. User must turn off vault first.
- Can’t set up bond on interfaces that are not already connected.
- If the USB key is missing from the system for Encryption, there is no error message presented.
- If USB key is missing for encryption, the user has to wait on a 10 minute timeout. After that, the encrypted volume is displayed as inactive.
- If a Flex-RAID volume has been expanded, the volume cannot be switched back to X-RAID mode.
- If you wish to remove a USB storage device, you should follow the safe removal procedure of first unmounting before removing the USB device. If these steps are not followed then you may develop errors on the file system on the USB device.
- UPS may report incorrect status after reboot, it may send out a warning during this time. After sometime, the UPS will start reporting the correct information.
- ReadyNAS 102, 104, and 2120 only support creating iSCSI LUNs 8TB and smaller.
I’m currently reviewing a RN102, so look for some articles on that in the next several weeks. Here’s a hint: I rather like the device! For now, if you have one of these units, go ahead and update that firmware!
