Welcome
Thank you for choosing the Cisco Small Business Smart Storage. The
NSS322 is a 2-bay Network Attached Storage (NAS) device that appears
as a native file server for the various clients within your network, including
Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, UNIX, and Linux platforms. The
biggest benefit to your users is that they can now access data that might
be stored across different physical platforms as simply as if it were on their
own computers. The Smart Storage provides a single repository that is
completely dedicated to storage, ensuring the integrity, reliability, and
accessibility of your data for a relatively low cost.
This guide describes how to physically install your NAS and launch the
Cisco Setup Wizard. If you are a new NAS user, you are strongly
encouraged to use the Setup Wizard, located on the product CD.
The Setup Wizard will help you with:
• Installing the Disk Drives
• Connecting the Equipment
• Starting NAS Configuration
• Mapping a Network Drive
• Installing the Client Utility for Windows
• Installing the Client Utility for Mac
The localized language Quick Start Guide is available on the CD shipped
with the product.

JBOD—JBOD lets you combine multiple disks of mixed
capacities into a single logical storage device. The capacity
of the JBOD array is the sum of the total capacities of the
individual component disks (that is, it does not have the
limitation of RAID 1 where you lose some capacity when
using mixed sized disks). JBOD offers no performance
increase compared to the component disks. It has lower
reliability than the component disks, as the failure of a single
disk results, in general, in the failure of the whole array.
-

Inline Power Switch Module
The enclosed DC inline switch module is provided for customers who wish
to have a convenient means of turning the device off during extended
inactivity. The switch module is provided in compliance with the
requirements of the European Union Commission Regulation No 1275/
2008. The device is also fully functional without the switch module by
plugging the power adapter directly into the device. However, the switch
module must be used to comply with the European Union regulations.
