About this User Guide
This user guide describes the functionality of the Verbatim PowerBay™ Network
Attached Storage (NAS) array product. The guide provides the information you
will need to install and configure the product based on your specific network
environment and storage needs. To obtain further product information,
firmware updates, and useful articles, please check our web site regularly

Introduction
The Verbatim PowerBay NAS array provides four disk cartridges configurable in
various RAID levels for superior performance and data redundancy. The PowerBay
NAS array enables you to share documents, files, and digital media with everyone
on the home or office network. Remotely accessing files through the Internet is
also possible with the built-in FTP server. Whether you are allowing access locally
or over the Internet, keep data safe by giving access rights only to specific users or
groups.
When configuring the PowerBay NAS array, you can create users and groups and
assign them to folders with either read or read/write permissions. This is ideal for
an office environment with employee-specific sensitive data or for the home
network. The PowerBay NAS array will be available to any computer (PC, MAC,
or Linux-based) on your network, without the need to install any software on the
computer.

user account information and LAN IP settings.
Basic Installation
Hardware Setup
This section provides unpacking and installation information for the PowerBay NAS
array. Open the shipping carton for the PowerBay NAS array and carefully unpack
its contents.
1. Ensure that a hard drive cartridge is inserted into each of the four mounting racks
and that the cartridge locking buttons are in the left (locked) position.
2. Connect the supplied Ethernet cable to the LAN port located at the back of the
device. Connect the other end of this cable to your network, either via a switch/
router or via direct connection to your computer for configuration.
3. Connect the supplied power cord to the rear of the PowerBay NAS array and to
an AC power receptacle.
4. Press the Power button on the front of the PowerBay NAS array. The green status LED
will begin to flash to indicate that the unit has initiated the power-on sequence.
5. Wait for the PowerBay NAS array to boot up and to auto-configure its connection
on the network. Depending on your particular LAN configuration and settings,
this may take several minutes. The following protocols will be followed during
auto-configuration:
a. DHCP client is enabled by default. Therefore, your router or other LAN equipment that is providing the DHCP service will automatically assign an IP address
to the PowerBay NAS array and complete the network connection.
b. If no DHCP server is available on your network, then the PowerBay NAS array
will take its default IP address of 192.168.0.32.
6. After successfully connecting to your network you will be able to discover the
PowerBay NAS array on your network. Its default name is “PowerBay”.
7. Before you can see any PowerBay NAS array shared folders, you must first set
up user accounts or at a minimum must assign read/write privileges for the default folder named Volume_1. This process is explained further below. Once this
is done, you will be able to discover shared folders in network workgroup named
“Workgroup”. In Windows go to My Network Places / Entire Network / Microsoft
Windows Network / Workgroup, or in Mac OS X navigate to Go / Network.

To set up other user accounts and to configure other basic system settings, you
should continue setup using the web-based administration tool described in the
next section.
Once the PowerBay NAS array is connected to your network and has been configured for your network environment, it can be accessed from any computer within
the same subnet on your LAN. Furthermore, more advanced users may choose to
configure name servers (such as WIN servers or DNS servers) in order to access the
PowerBay NAS array from a different subnet.
Software Setup
The included CD-ROM contains copies of the User Guide, as well as two software
applications: 1) MagicalFinder, and 2) Acronis backup software.
Magical Finder - Network Setup Utility
When first powered on, during the initial boot sequence, the PowerBay NAS array
will wait to be assigned an IP address via DHCP. If it does not receive a DHCP assigned IP address, by default it will have a self-assigned IP address of 192.168.0.32.
If your router assigns addresses automatically, your router’s manual will describe
how to view the DHCP Lease List so you can see your drive’s assigned IP address.
Alternatively, you can find your drive’s IP address using the included Magical Finder
utility that is provided on the product CD. If you are unfamiliar with the operation of
your router, you may find it easier to use the Magical Finder.

Advanced Setup - Section
The PowerBay NAS array keeps track of data stored by its network users by managing the data’s destination folder (also referred to herein as a “shared folder” or simply a “share”). Furthermore, the PowerBay NAS array must keep track of who may
read from, and write to, each folder. It does this by setting up user accounts and
groups. A group is a collection of specific user accounts. When you assign access
privileges to a new share you have the option of either making assignments for
individual user accounts, or for an entire group of users at once by referring to the
group’s name.
The default factory settings provide for no default user accounts or default groups.
Though there is one default folder (named Volume_1), this folder has no default access privileges and so will not be accessible at first. The simplest way to make the
Volume_1 folder accessible is to use the web configuration tool (Advanced Setup /
Shared Folders) to define the Volume_1 folder privileges as “Allow everybody read
and write.”
The Users/Groups menu is used to create and manage user and group accounts.
These are used for user access and read/write privileges for specified folders on the
network drive (using the Network Access menu) or to setup FTP access and privileges. When the device is connected to a Workgroup up to 128 users and 10 groups
can be created. When the device is connected to an Active Directory a combined total of 10000 users and groups can be displayed. By default, all users have read and
write access to all newly created folders, but access rules can be created in the
Network Access menu.

Disk Configuration - Page
The PowerBay NAS array supports five RAID methods of disk configuration. They
are RAID 0, RAID 1 with spare, RAID 5, RAID 5 with spare and RAID 6. When choosing to use RAID with spare the spare disk’s icon will change its color to green.
Each of the RAID modes may be further configured to include full disk data encryption. RAID modes 0, 5, and 6 may be further configured to included array mirroring
to an attached eSATA drive.
Warning: Changing RAID mode will delete all data on the disks. Do not change the RAID configuration
unless you have first saved all of the data from the device to another storage location.
RAID 0:
RAID 0 (also called Striping) distributes
data across all disks in a way which can
improve throughput, while retaining full
capacity. However, RAID 0 provides no
fault tolerance so in case of possible
failure of any disk, all data will be lost.
Available capacity is the combined
capacity of all four disk cartridges.
Product
Overview
Installation
RAID 1 with Spare:
RAID 1 (also called Mirroring) stores a
duplicate set of data onto at least one
other disk so that if one disk fails all
data can be recovered from the other
disk. The PowerBay NAS array implements RAID 1 in a way that provides
for even more redundancy, resulting in
maximum fault tolerance. It does this by (a) using two drives as mirrors instead of
just one and (b) using the fourth drive as a spare. The spare drive will automatically
rebuild as a fresh mirror whenever a failure of one of the other three drives is
detected. Available capacity is equal to that of only one disk cartridge.
25
Web
Configuration
Knowledge
Base
Web Configuration
RAID 5:
RAID 5 (Striping with distributed parity)
combines three or more disks in a way
that protects data against loss of any
one disk. The storage capacity of the
array is reduced by one disk. The
PowerBay NAS array implements
RAID 5 in one of two ways:
1) Select “RAID 5” to build a 4-disk
array. Available capacity will be equal
to that of three disk cartridges.
2) Select “RAID 5 with Spare” to build
a 3-disk array. The fourth disk is used
as a spare. The spare drive will automatically rebuild to complete a healthy
3-disk array whenever a failure of one
of the other three drives is detected.
Available capacity is equal to that of
two disk cartridges.
RAID 6:
RAID 6 (Striping with distributed dual parity) combines all four disks in a way that
protects data against loss of any two disks. In the event of a
single disk failure, the use of dual parity allows for time to rebuild the array safely
without the data being at risk if an additional drive fails before
the rebuild is complete. Available capacity is equal to that of two disk cartridges.
Product
Overview
Array Mirroring to eSATA Drive
The full data of the PowerBay NAS array can be continuously copied to an attached
eSATA drive. If a catastrophic failure of the NAS array occurs, the full data can be
restored from the eSATA drive once the NAS array has been repaired or replaced.
Array mirroring to eSATA is supported only in RAID modes 0, 5, and 6 and is NOT
supported in RAID 1 with Spare or in RAID 5 with Spare. The capacity of the eSATA
drive must be at least as large as the capacity of the NAS array.
If you want to use this function, please enable it during the first time you configure
the array.
When the mirror function is in use, the Disk Configuration page will show the status of the mirror system and will present action buttons to temporarily disable the
mirror function (“Unmirror” Button) and to restore data from the eSATA drive to the
NAS (“Restore” Button).
26
Installation
Web
Configuration
Knowledge

Web Configuration
Warning: When using the eSATA mirroring function, you MUST attach and power up the eSATA drive
BEFORE you power up the PowerBay NAS array. This power-up sequence must be followed EACH
TIME you power cycle the PowerBay NAS array. If you power up the PowerBay NAS array first, and
later attach and power up the eSATA drive, the eSATA drive will not be recognized as a mirror device,
so the eSATA drive will no longer be synchronized to the NAS data.
Array Encryption
The PowerBay NAS array supports 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) full
disk encryption. Encryption may be enabled for any RAID mode. If eSATA mirroring
is enabled, then data copied to the eSATA drive will also be encrypted.
If you want to use this function, please enable it during the first time you configure
the array.
Once the drive has been configured using encryption, the full array can thereafter
be LOCKED or UNLOCKED using a password key. When the array is LOCKED, it will
not show up on the LAN as a shared volume and users cannot access it for storage.
All four cartridge LED’s will remain red while the array is LOCKED. For convenience,
several methods are provided to UNLOCK a LOCKED array:
1. Enter the NAS user interface and press UNLOCK on the Disk Configuration page.
You will be prompted to enter the password key string.
2. Insert a USB Key device into the front USB port of the PowerBay NAS array. This
Key device may be either a flash drive or a hard drive and must have been previously configured with the key file using the ‘Store Key in USB Drive’ procedure.
Once the array is unlocked, the USB Key device may be removed.
3. Enter the NAS user interface and load the key file from a computer on the LAN
using the ’Load’ function on the Key Management page. This key file must have
been previously stored onto the computer using the ‘Save’ function on the Key
Management page. Alternatively, the key file might have been previously emailed to a user using the ‘Mail’ function on the Key Management page.

with caution, since anyone who can
access the PowerBay NAS array to
power it off and back on can unlock a
locked array.
Store Key in USB Drive:
If you want to use a USB storage device to unlock a locked array, insert a USB Flash
Drive or USB Hard Drive in the front USB port and check this box. An encrypted key
file will be written to the USB device during configuration. A USB key device created
in this way can later be used to UNLOCK a LOCKED array. The USB key cannot be

Sharing files using Windows
The PowerBay NAS array supports Microsoft Common Internet File System (CIFS),
also known as Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. The SMB protocol is implemented on the PowerBay NAS array using the popular Samba software. Any PC
running Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista can access shared files
on the PowerBay NAS array. Once you can view the folder in My Computer or in
Windows Explorer, you can drag and drop files to this folder like you can with any
folder.
There are several alternative ways to view the NAS shared folders in Windows.
For example, you can:
• Use the Run dialogue box accessed through the Start button in the system tray.
• Browse through the Network Neighborhood.
• Use the Search dialogue box accessed through the Start button or File Browser.
• Look through devices in My Computer.
Run Dialogue
To find the PowerBay NAS array using this method, select Start in the system tray
and select Run. In the Open: field provided enter “\\” followed by the PowerBay NAS
array’s IP and then press OK. If your IP has already been associated with the device
name, then you may alternatively enter “\\PowerBay” and then press OK.

3) Log into the Linux PC as root.
4) Create a mount point, such as /mnt/nas by entering the mount command from
your client computer. For example,
mount –t nfs <IP address of the PowerBay NAS array>:/shares/powerbay/powerbay/mnt/nas
Now the folder Powerbay will be mounted to the directory /mnt/nas in the Linux
system. Linux users with access privileges can now access files in this directory.
USB Print Server Installation
The PowerBay NAS array features a built-in USB print server, giving users the ability
to share a printer on their local network. Connect a USB printer to the USB port on
the back of the PowerBay NAS array. It is important to ensure that the printer manufacturer’s drivers have been installed on any client computer you want to print from.
1. Go to Start > Run and enter the following command to access your PowerBay NAS array:
\\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your PowerBay NAS array). Click OK.

Hot-Swap Function
The PowerBay NAS array supports hot-swap drive trays. You can eject or insert
hard drive cartridges when the PowerBay NAS array is operating.
However, if the hard drives are created in various levels of RAID, you cannot hot swap
all the hard drives at the same time. Hot swapping all the hard drives will cause a loss
of data, and the RAID volume will need to be re-created again. Different levels of RAID
require various numbers of hard drives remaining in the PowerBay NAS array.
RAID 0: If any single hard drive is hot-swapped, the data will be lost and the array
will be destroyed.
RAID 1: You can hot swap the hard drives as long as one of the drives in the
3-drive mirror array is still in the PowerBay NAS array. Removal of all hard
drives will result in a loss of all data and volume will have crashed. You may
always remove the spare drive provided that it has not yet been activated.
RAID 5: In a RAID 5 volume, it is only possible to hot swap 1 hard drive at a time
without losing all data. This is because a RAID 5 volume can only tolerate
the loss of 1 hard drive and still continue to work. After hot swapping a hard
drive, the volume must first be rebuilt before another hard drive can be hot
swapped, otherwise this will also result in a loss of all data and the RAID
volume will have crashed. If you are configured for RAID 5 plus Spare, you
may always remove the spare drive provided that it has not yet been activated.
RAID 6: In a RAID 6 volume, it is possible to hot swap any 2 hard drives at a time
without losing data.
The hot-swap feature is only indicated by the LED behavior of the individual HDD
LEDs. If the HDD is functioning normally, its LED will be solid blue. When you slide
the HDD locking button to the right to prepare to swap the HDD, the HDD LED will
go off. As soon as you insert the new HDD into the slot and slide the HDD locking
button to the left, the blue light will appear again indicating that the HDD status is
ready.

What is RAID?
RAID, short for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, is storage configuration that
combines two or more disks for the purpose of providing fault tolerance and/or improving performance. There are several different configurations or levels of RAID,
each providing a different method of sharing or distributing data among the drives.
RAID 0
RAID 1
RAID 5
RAID 6
RAID 0 provides data striping, which spreads out
blocks of data over all drives, but does not provide
data redundancy. Although performance is improved, the lack of fault tolerance means that if one
drive fails, all data in the array will be lost.
RAID 1 provides mirroring over multiple disks
with the same read/write speed of a single disk.
A RAID 1 array can only be as large as its smallest member disk. Because the data is stored on
multiple disks, RAID 1 provides fault tolerance
and protection.
RAID 5 provides data striping with distributed parity, which stores information that can be used to
reconstruct data. A RAID 5 array will be the size
of all the combined disks capacity less the capacity of one disk. For example, if there are 4x 500GB
disks in the array, the array capacity will be 1.5TB
(3x500GB). RAID 5 allows the array to continue operating even if one of the disks fails. The diagram
below indicates the operation of RAID 5:
RAID 6 is an extension of RAID 5. It adds an additional parity block by using block-level striping
with two parity blocks distributed across all the
member disks. RAID 6 allows the array to continue operating even if two of the disks fail. The
diagram below indicates the operation of RAID 6:

Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software
and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered
by the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to
make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that
you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free
programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software,
or if you modify it.
Product
Overview
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the
rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them
these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Installation
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know
that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’
reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors
of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we
have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program or work, and a “work based
on the Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program
or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all
the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this
License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer
warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that
there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print
such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to
those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which
is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on
a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer,
in accord with Subsection b above.)

GNU General Public License
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus
the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components
(compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated
so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.
Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this
License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license
from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose
any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance
by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this
License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program
at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of
any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is
willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License
incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such
new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to
it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version
published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose
any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to
the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software
Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of
all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
