Male Speaker: Hello, this is the Free Computer Consultant. Today we are looking at the Netgear ReadyNAS NV+, this is a network attached storage or NAS device. And this particular unit is a 4450-100, which means that it is a unit configured before 500 gigabyte hard drives.
Now these hard drives are Seagate Enterprise hard drives, very high quality drive and by default it is configured the X-RAID configuration which means that it's going to make the maximum size RAID 5 redundant array that it can and with four 500 gig drives that comes out to about 1.3 terabytes, there are three drives, they are actually working as data drives and then the fourth drive is a checksum drive providing the fault tolerance and this is the default configuration, there is another configuration that you can have and its one that I kind of like for certain data situations where you can have a RAID 5 configuration with three other drives and the fourth drive can be a hot-spare that would jump into action should one of the three primary drives fail.
Now when you do that you do cut down the available storage space to only 1 terabyte instead of 1.3 and actually it will be less than 1 terabyte due to overhead. And this unit has 256 megabytes of RAM and in another video we will be showing how to upgrade that to one gigabyte, certain new configurations are available also with one gigabyte already built-in that but these are not currently and also will be showing in another video how to change that configuration from the X-RAID to the hot-spare configuration or FlexRaid.
Now this unit is set up currently as just set-up plugged into a power source where I plugged into a UPS and it is plugged into the PC with a standard category 5D cable and it does work with either a straight cable or a cross-over cable, you don't need any harbor switch, just plug the PC into it. I want to show you the actual drives on the front and you see its pretty straight forward for both in the door, here are the drives, it pop out quite easily, the unit has a power button on the front, four drive activity lights that will show you what the drive is -- happens to be down or if its absent you do not have to four drives in this unit and here is the backup button which by default will backup the contents of the drive to an external storage device plugged into the USB connector on the front that can be changed of course. You can see it on the camera but this displayed on here is an LED the display, it does show the IP address of the unit currently and the available storage which is really kind of any device to have.
Now on the back of the unit, I am going to turn it around here, and see we have got the network interface, it is gigabit interface and there are two additional USB connectors which can be used for additional devices that can be plugged in and this you know what remind them as storage or to backup the data on this unit too.
Now one of the things they don't make crystal clear in getting the starter guide is how to connect this unit initially and get configured, they say plug it into the network and plug your PC into the network and yes that works but you don't really know what's going on. If you plug this unit into the network with dynamic addressing available DHCP available, this unit will pick up a DHCP address. If it doesn't find one it will become a DHCP server itself with an address given to itself of 192.168.168.168 and in the PC which I plugged into it will pick up an address of 192.168.168.1 and you can connect and get up and get going.
Its kind of nice to know that because when you are just plugging it in you don't really know exact what's going on and in the course that status panel on the front which again I will zoom to, we can only read on the camera does show the address of the unit, then once you have that all connected there is a really simple software called radar that you install on the PC, fourth configuration will show that in just a minute.
One more thing I would like to show on this unit is just exactly how easy it is to change a drive, take them out so I am going to show you here you just pop up in the front door, push a button, pick up the lever, slide it out and here is the drive and as you can see it is the serial ATA type interface on the drive and again these are the Seagate Enterprise, high reliable the drives, very nice set-up. Turn on the PC that is connected to the ReadyNAS unit and it was already turned on and as we type the IP config command, you can see I didn't have a good IP address that 169.254 shows it really has no address and is working for one.
So just by issuing the command IP config space forward slash we knew the ReadyNAS device gave me this address you see with the default gateway point to itself. So we are connected to the unit and ready to go. So go over here and launch the radar unit, unfortunately this doesn't this one doesn't resize, so have to kind of fan just little bit but you can see it's found my ReadyNAS unit and it gives you the host name, the address, disk information, fan information and the four more versions currently running. If you click the setup button, it get a browser here and this works with Mozilla Firefox and it wants some authentication.
Now by default the password, user name and the password is admin and you can kind of see the roots of this product because the password is Infrant 1,that's Infrant 1, and where they get that is Netgear actually bought this technology from a company called Infrant Technologies and you can change the password if you like once you configure the unit and here you can see the welcome screen and just a lot of different configurations on here, it gets very detailed which you can do with it, but by default it just works and that's a very nice thing about it, you can see here again the host name, the model name, serial number, firmware version, memory, MAC address, IP address, gateway DNS and in here the type of configuration of the drive, its an X-RAID and are four disks and you currently have zero percent of about 1.3 terabytes used and it is scrolled on just a little bit.
There are some advanced controls and setup wizards and in the bottom we actually have some more status here, volume disk, fan, really very, very nice unit here and the firmware is upgradable that will go online and search for upgraded firmware and perhaps we will have that in our future video as well.
That's it for now, I want to show you this basic setup of the ReadyNAS NV+ from Netgear probably Infrant Technologies, very nice unit and for more videos and more information on troubleshooting and using your PC, please visit my website, www.freecomputerconsultant.com. Thank you.
