Product Overview
Main Features
The main features of Buffalo Network Admin Tools for NAS (BN-ADT/NAS) are
shown below.
Network Map
The Network Map detects NAS devices on the network and displays them as icons.
Management
This interface provides centralized management for Buffalo products that support
BN-ADT/NAS. It also enables easy backup and restoration of settings and provides
logging and pinging.

What is Syslog?
Syslog is a standard protocol for storing logs in UNIX servers and Linux servers. It
enables the collection and centralized management of logs from multiple devices
over a network. Generally, the logs for access points, routers, and switches are
temporarily stored in the memory of the device itself. However, because the size
of this memory is limited, logs are gradually deleted starting from the oldest ones.
BN-ADT/NAS can be used as a Syslog server for saving device logs to a computer
hard drive or other location. Because of the large size of typical computer hard
drives, this enables you to save logs for extended periods of time.
Syslog Server

management of logs)

(NAS)
Note:
Because the Syslog server is automatically started as a service, BN-ADT/NAS does
not need to be running and you do not need to be logged into Windows.

Setup Overview
After installing BN-ADT/NAS, scan for TeraStations on the network and configure
them as needed. BN-ADT/NAS can detect TeraStations on the same broadcast
domain as the computer where BN-ADT/NAS is installed.
TeraStations may be on the same subnet as the computer running BN-ADT/NAS,
or on different subnets if routing is configured so that network communication is
possible in both directions.
Note:
Before changing your TeraStation's settings with BN-ADT/NAS, back up the current
settings and reset it to factory defaults. For more on backing up settings with NSSHFT, refer to your TeraStation documentation.

outside the router or layer 3 switch, select Tools - Specify IP Address Range and
Scan. Scanning can take considerable time, and some devices may be unable to
be detected.
• If Tools - Autoscan Periodically is enabled, a scan is performed periodically for
devices that were added or removed.
• Incompatible devices and firmware versions may cause scanning to take a long,
long time.
• The scanning progress can be checked using the Log Window (page 12) and the
progress bar at the bottom right of the window.
• Scan for New Devices also scans for new devices in the broadcast domain in
addition to devices that are already registered in the database.
• Refresh the Status reacquires information from devices registered in the database.

Conditions for determining when the main TeraStation has failed:
■ When the backup TeraStation is unable to detect the main TeraStation for a
certain amount of time
By default, the backup TeraStation attempts to detect the main TeraStation
at 60-second intervals. If it is unable to detect the main TeraStation after five
consecutive attempts, the main TeraStation is determined to have failed. To change
the settings, right-click the TeraStation icon in the map screen, click TeraStation
Functions – Failover configuration, and change the setting in the displayed screen.
Even if the main TeraStation has not failed, if the backup TeraStation is unable
detect the main TeraStation for five consecutive attempts due to a network
problem, this is determined to be a failure, and operation will switch to the backup
TeraStation. If this happens, failover must be reconfigured in the original main
TeraStation.
■ When one of the following errors occurs in the main TeraStation
• E12 Cooling Error
• E16 Hard Drive Not Found
• E13 RAID in Degrade Mode
• E22 Cannot Mount Hard Drive
• E14 Cannot Mount RAID Array
• E23, E30 Hard Drive Failed
• E15 Too Many Bad Sectors
If any of the above errors occurs, the main TeraStation is automatically shut down.
Supported protocols:
If data is written to the main TeraStation using any of the protocols below, the files
and folders are copied to the backup TeraStation. Files and folders written using
unsupported protocols are not copied.
• Windows file sharing (SMB, CIFS)
• Apple file sharing (AFP)
• SFTP/FTP/FTPS
• NFS
If data is written by AFP from Mac OS X, the system processing speed may slow
down. If this happens, try using SMB to write data.
If NFS is set to kernel mode, files and folders written using NFS are not copied to
the backup TeraStation. The NFS setting can be changed from kernel mode to user
mode in the TeraStation’s settings by navigating to Network – NFS – NFS Service.

Using with UPS:
Once failover is configured, you will not be able to set up a UPS link for the backup
TeraStation. So, configure your UPS before configuring failover. UPS recovery can
be configured for both the main TeraStation and the backup TeraStation. However,
the UPS settings of the main TeraStation are not copied to the backup TeraStation.
UPS settings for both TeraStations should be configured before configuring
failover.
In the backup TeraStation's settings, if synchronize with UPS connected to other
TeraStation on the network is selected so that operation is linked to the main
TeraStation, then if the main TeraStation shuts down, the backup TeraStation will
no longer be able to detect if there was a power outage. In this case, connect the
UPS communication cable from the main TeraStation to the backup TeraStation
and reconfigure the UPS link settings.
Use the same model and same capacity TeraStation for the main TeraStation
and backup TeraStation.
If the capacity of the main TeraStation is larger than that of the backup TeraStation,
an error occurs, and files cannot be copied to the backup TeraStation. The
message “Replication I33 ReplicateFailure” appears on the LCD panel of the main
TeraStation. If this happens, disable failover in Settings of the main TeraStation.
All data in the TeraStation designated as the backup TeraStation will be
erased.
Before configuring failover, move any needed data to another hard drive or storage
device.
Also, during configuration of failover, the backup TeraStation's settings cannot be
changed.
Failover is intended for TeraStations on the same network. It should not be
used for remote backup applications.

Notes:
• To disable failover, right-click the TeraStation icon in the map screen, and from
the displayed menu, click TeraStation Functions – Failover configuration. Select
Failover Stop and click Send. Failover can also be disabled by clicking Failover Stop
in the backup TeraStation’s settings.
If failover cannot be disabled, click TeraStation Functions – Failover configuration.
Select Force Failover Stop, and click Send. After performing a forced disable, restart
the main TeraStation and the backup TeraStation. After restarting, check the
settings (such as the IP address) and data in the shared folder for both the main
TeraStation and the backup TeraStation. After a forced disable, the shared folder
of the backup TeraStation is set to read-only. If necessary, configure failover
again.
• During configuration of failover, if “Replication I33 ReplicateFailure” is displayed
on the LCD panel, synchronization between the main TeraStation and backup
TeraStation has failed. If this occurs, navigate to System – Backup – Replication in
Settings and choose Resynchronize.
• If replication is set or was set for multiple folders, initialize the settings before
reconfiguring failover. If multiple folders were set before, failover cannot be used
even if the settings are changed back to disable replication. This is not a problem,
however, if only a single folder was set for replication.
• Files are transferred asynchronously. File transfer may take considerable time
depending on the network environment or the TeraStation's operating status.
• The system processing speed may become slow if the TeraStation is accessed by
several users simultaneously.
• A large number of files should not be continuously written over a long period of
time.
• The main TeraStation cannot be used as the backup location for Time Machine
supported in Mac OS X.
• If the failover operation occurs while email notification is enabled, perform the
following operation at the main TeraStation after the failover process is done.
Navigate to System – Maintenance – Email Notification and click Modify Settings –
Save.

Maintenance mode:
Change to maintenance mode before configuring failover, turning off the
TeraStation temporarily, or updating the firmware. After changing to maintenance
mode, resume failover once the maintenance operation is completed.
Procedure for changing to maintenance mode
Right-click the icon of the main TeraStation in the map screen and click
TeraStation Functions – Failover configuration. In the displayed screen, select
Maintenance mode and click Send.
Procedure for returning from maintenance mode to activated failover
status
Right-click the icon of the main TeraStation in the map screen, and click
TeraStation Functions – Failover configuration. In the displayed screen select
Cancel Maintenance mode and click Send.
Note:
Do not write a large number of files (more than 10,000) to the main TeraStation
during maintenance mode. This could cause data synchronization to fail between
the main TeraStation and backup TeraStation after resuming failover.
Service IP address setting:
The Service IP address settings in the TeraStation Functions – Failover advanced
settings screen is the IP address that overrides the current setting when the backup
TeraStation takes over operation from the main TeraStation.
If no service IP address is set or a fixed IP address is set, an attempt is made to
inherit the IP address set for the main TeraStation. If the same IP address cannot be
set, such as due to an IP address conflict, the same IP address may not be inherited.
The IP address may also not be inherited in DHCP server environments.

Log Settings: Using Syslog
Logs for each device are temporarily saved in the memory of the device itself.
However, because of the limited size of this memory, the logs are gradually erased
starting from the oldest ones. BN-ADT/NAS can be used as a syslog server for saving
device logs to a computer hard drive or other location. Because of the large size of
typical computer hard drives, this enables the saving of logs for extended periods
of time. This also enables centralized management of logs from multiple devices.
Notes:
• Because this function is automatically started as a service, BN-ADT/NAS does not
need to be running, and you do not need to be logged onto Windows.
• A fixed (manual) setting is recommended for the IP address of the device
receiving the log.
