Network Settings displays your current network settings and enables those settings to be
modified. The network settings identify your DNS servers and WINS servers and how your
system's IP address is determined. In most cases it is recommended that you leave the
Automatically configure all network settings checked. Most system IP addresses and other
network settings can normally be configured automatically. If you are unsure, it is best to
leave this checked.

If a DHCP server is unavailable, the device could auto-assign an IP address or you can
manually configure the network settings. If you are comfortable with network technology,
uncheck Automatically configure all network settings,
settings which clears all checkboxes. When
the checkbox is empty, the text boxes below are enabled.
If you only want to configure your DNS Servers and WINS Servers, you can uncheck
Automatically configure all network settings and check Automatically configure IP Address.
Address
If you choose to manually configure your network settings, supply the following
information:
DNS Servers—
Servers—the IP addresses of the DNS (Domain Name System) servers.
DNS is used for translating the domain name to IP addresses.
WINS Servers—
Servers—the IP addresses of the WINS server.
IP Address—
Address—the static IP address of the Iomega StorCenter device.
An unused IP address from within the range used by the LAN should be used.
Subnet Mask—
Mask—the subnet that the IP address belongs to.
The default value is 255.255.255.0.
Gateway—
Gateway—the gateway IP address needs to be entered in this field.
Check Enable jumbo frame support to enable jumbo frame support. Jumbo frame support
is useful for transferring large files, such as multimedia files, over a network. Jumbo frame
support increases transfer speed by placing large files in fewer data packets. It also
reduces the demand on the device hardware by having the CPU process more data in fewer
data packets.
Jumbo frame support should only be enabled if you are sure your network is jumbo-frame
compatible and all network devices have been configured to support jumbo frames. It is
recommended that you confirm all network interface cards (NICs) are configured to
support jumbo frames before enabling this feature.
Click Apply to save your changes.
NOTE: If you change the network settings, the device restarts and you have to log back in.

NFS (Network File System) allows remote hosts to mount file systems over a network and
interact with them as though they were mounted locally. NFS provides another protocol for
sharing storage data with Linux hosts. To enable NFS, navigate to the Settings tab, click
Network Services → NFS, and check the Enable NFS checkbox.
If you are logged in as the root user on a client machine accessing the Iomega StorCenter
device through NFS, you can mount a secured share and access the files on it by checking
the Allow root account access checkbox.

Page 30 of 137
When NFS is enabled, you can configure rules for host-based access to folders.
Rules can be added to specify the hosts that are allowed to access folders using NFS. This
page allow you to configure NFS rules to specify access for hosts. For example,
*.cs.foo.com matches all hosts in the domain cs.foo.com. To export a folder to all hosts on
an IP address or subnetwork simultaneously, specify an IP address and netmask pair as
address/netmask where the netmask can be in dotted-decimal format, or as a contiguous
mask length. For example, either /255.255.252.0 or /22 will result in identical
subnetworks.
NOTE: NFS cannot be enabled when an Active Directory server is in use.

When sharing files on a network, you must choose filenames that are compatible with all
devices that will use the file. The StorCenter device shares files using the SMB (Server
Message Block) protocol and stores its files on a EXT2 hard drive. You will need to use
characters supported by these filesystems to successfully share your files. Any filename
supported by a Windows PC should work with most platforms.
Invalid filenames:
Any filename containing the characters: " / \ < > ? : * |
Any filename that contains extended characters such as Á, À, Ã, Ä, etc. (characters
typed with the the Ctrl key on the Mac).
Any filename that ends with a space or period.
Any filename that begins with a period.
some filenames such as comX, lptX, con, nul, prn, etc. maybe reserved for use by the
operating system of your client computer (where X represents a number).
Although filenames may be up to 256 characters long, the file path is limited to 260
characters in some operating systems. For best results, use short filenames.

Adding Local Users:
1. Log in as an administrator. Navigate to the Users tab and click Add near the bottom
of the page or, from the Home tab, click Add Users. The Add User page opens.
2. You can click Cancel at any time to exit the current operation and return to the Users
page or the Home page.
3. Enter the following information:
Username—
Username—enter the username of the user to be created. This will be
the username provided when logging into the Iomega StorCenter device.
There is maximum of 32 characters and spaces are not allowed.
Password—
Password—create a password for the user. The password should be
http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010
Page 48 of 137
between 8 and 12 characters. Spaces are not allowed.
Confirm Password—
Password—confirm the password. If the text in this field does
not match the text in the Password field, an error will be returned.
Descriptive Name—
Name—add a descriptive name to identify the user. For
example, if you created a user with a Username of jsmith, you may want
to add the Descriptive Name Joe Smith.
Administrator—
Administrator—check this box if you would like to allow this user to
manage the Iomega StorCenter device.
NOTE: An administrator does not inherently have access to all Shared
Folders. Access to Shared Folders must be granted explicitly to
administrators, as with other users.
Create a secured Shared Folder for this user—
user—check this box if you
would like to create a secured Shared Folder for this user. The created
Shared Folder will have the new user's name and will give access only to
that user. If you do not wish to create a secured Shared Folder for this
user on the device, uncheck this checkbox.
4. Click Next to grant Shared Folder access rights for this user.
5. Set the access rights for the user to access the available Shared Folders. An
administrator can modify access rights to any Shared Folder by selecting Read/Write,
Read/Write
Read,
Read or None for that Shared Folder. Unsecured Shared Folders are not displayed in
the list since access to them cannot be restricted.
6. Once you have finished setting the access rights for the user, click Apply to add the
user. If the user was created successfully, a confirmation page will display. Click OK
to return to the Users page or the Home page.
Adding ADS Users:
When you enable and configure Active Directory using the StorCenter Manager, it
associates the StorCenter with the Active Directory controller, but does not automatically
add all domain users to StorCenter Manager.
Individual users are added once they access the StorCenter with a valid Active Directory
username and password. At that time, their username will be added to the list of users and
a secured Shared Folder will be created for that user. A secured Shared Folder provides
each user with a private, secured area to save files. By default the public and Backups
Shared Folder are Read/Write access for all users and therefore publicly accessible by all
users.
When Active Directory is enabled, all new users are automatically denied access to existing
secure Shared Folders. Users must first access the StorCenter before an administrator can
http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010
Page 49 of 137
grant them access to a Shared Folder. A user must exist in the User Accounts page of the
StorCenter Manager before an administrator can grant them access to a Shared Folder.
NOTE: Administrators cannot add, delete, or modify user accounts displayed in the
StorCenter Manager when Active Directory is enabled. All user account management must
be performed through the domain controller.
| top of page |
Modifying Users
NOTE: Only administrators can perform this operation. Non-administrator users can
change only the descriptive name and password for themselves (1 step process), whereas
an administrator user can change the descriptive name, password, and the Shared Folder
access privileges for any user (2 step process). When logged in as an administrator, user
information is found on the Users tab. When logged in as a non-administrator, user
information is found on the User Information tab.
1. From the Action column of the Users table, click
to modify a user's properties.
The Modify User page opens. This is Step 1 of 2.
2. To modify the descriptive name of the user, used to provide a more familiar means
to identify a user's login name, type a new descriptive name. The descriptive name
can be up to 64 characters and spaces are allowed.
3. To add or remove administrative privileges, check or uncheck the Administrator
checkbox.
NOTE: StorCenter administrators do not have access to all Shared Folders by default.
Access rights to Shared Folders must be granted explicitly to administrators, as with
other users.
4. To change the password for the user, choose Yes.
Yes When Yes is selected, the
password fields display. Type a new password for the user. For added security, the
password should be between 8 and 12 characters. Spaces are not allowed. Confirm

Managing Groups
Administrators can grant individual users access rights to Shared Folders on the Iomega
StorCenter device. Groups provides administrators with the added ability to create one or
more groups and grant each group rights to Shared Folders on the Iomega StorCenter
device. Groups can contain one or more groups and one or more users and users can
belong to more than one group. When groups are defined, a user's access rights are the
most rights granted to the user and all groups to which the user belongs.
Access the Groups page by navigating to the Settings tab and clicking Groups.
Groups
By default, there are no groups defined. Once an administrator defines one or more
groups, the Groups functionality is dynamically available when creating, modifying, and
viewing users, Shared Folders, and groups. In addition, the help is dynamically updated
with the appropriate content whether groups are defined or not.
To view the current list of users, click the Users link.

If you are running with Active Directory enabled, as opposed to Workgroup mode, the
administrator will have the ability to view Active Directory groups, add them to the Iomega
StorCenter device, and change the group's Shared Folder access. However, when Active
Directory is enabled, the administrator cannot create, modify, or update group or user
permissions using the Iomega StorCenter Manager as these features are hidden. The
administrator must adjust permissions on the Active Directory domain controller.

Erasing the StorCenter device
Erase Disks provides two options for irrecoverably deleting all data on your Iomega
StorCenter device: Quick Erase and Secure Erase. The default option, Quick Erase,
permanently deletes all record of existing or deleted data, users, and passwords. The
Secure Erase option takes significantly longer, but provides an added security benefit by
overwriting all disks with random data in addition to permanently erasing all data on the
disks to prevent recovery of existing or deleted data, users, and passwords.
Since this operation renders all data irrecoverable, to prevent accidental data loss you must
manually delete all folders from your Iomega StorCenter device prior to performing a disk
erase operation. You can use the disk erase feature only to erase the disks internal to the
Iomega StorCenter device. You cannot use this feature to erase any external storage
devices that may be connected.
Access the Erase Disks page by navigating to the Settings tab and clicking Disks >Manage
Manage
Disks >Erase
Erase Disks.
Disks
1. Before you can erase data from the disks, you must delete all folders from the

device.
2. Once all folders are deleted, navigate to the Settings tab, click Disks,
Disks and then click
the Manage Disks link.
3. Click Erase Disks and the Erase All Data from Drives page displays.
4. Check the checkbox to confirm erasing all disks on the device.
5. Choose the Quick Erase or Secure Erase option.
6. Click Apply to erase all data from your disks.
After erasing the disks, you must shut down and restart the Iomega StorCenter
device and perform a device setup again to use the device.

What is an Array?
Changing the Data Protection
What is JBOD?
What is RAID 1?
The StorCenter device comes preconfigured with a RAID 1 array. To enhance your
experience with your StorCenter device, it is very important to become familiar with the
basics of array handling.
€
What is an Array?
Arrays are devices that combine multiple physical disks into a single logical volume. RAID,
or Redundant Array of Inexpensive (or Independent) Disks, is a method of combining
multiple disks for data redundancy in case of a disk failure. This section describes each of
the different types of arrays supported by your StorCenter device.
http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010
Page 59 of 137
CAUTION! Some RAID configurations add a level of redundancy for your data; however,
RAID should not be your only means of backup.
| top of page |
Changing the Data Protection
Before you can switch data protection schemes, you must delete all data from the device
by removing all Shared Folders. If you are unfamiliar with RAID protection, it is
recommended that you do not adjust this setting.
1. Navigate to the Settings tab,
tab click Disks,
Disks and then the Manage Disks link. Click Data
Protection.
Protection
2. Choose one of the following settings (See descriptions below):
Mirror based data protection (RAID 1) — Default
Without data protection (JBOD)
3. Click OK to change the data protection. A confirmation page displays.
4. Check the confirmation checkbox and click Apply to change the data protection.
Data protection will begin to rebuild and the Dashboard will display the current
status.
| top of page |
What is a Spanned Volume?
JBOD, also known as spanning, combines multiple hard drives into a single large volume.
Data is not written in parallel to multiple disks. Data is written to a single disk until it is
full and then written to the next disk in the set. Spanning does not provide any data
redundancy. Spanning requires two or more hard drives.
| top of page |
What is RAID 1?
RAID 1 mirrors or duplicates the contents of one drive on another equally-sized drive.
Mirroring provides optimal data integrity and immediate access to your data if one drive
fails. The StorCenter device only supports two-drive RAID 1 configurations. The RAID
capacity is half the physical capacity of the two drives.

Using the Media Server
The Iomega StorCenter device has a built-in media server that, when enabled, can scan for
media content in specific Shared Folder directories.
Access the Media Server page by navigating to the Settings tab and clicking
Media Services > Media Server.
Server The Media Server supports playback of videos, music and
pictures from any UPnP AV (Universal Plug and Play Audio Visual) network media players,
®
®
®
such as iTunes , Windows Media Player , or Xbox 360 .
The Iomega StorCenter device's built-in media server scans for files in the Media Folder
directory specified on the Media Server page and any Public Media directory created
directly below any user's shared folder. Any media content contained in these specific
directories will be scanned by the Iomega StorCenter media server and accessible to any
user on your network with a media player.
Media content placed in the Public Media subfolder of a secured Shared Folder can be seen
by all users on your network, even if they have not been granted access to the Shared
Folder. Do not put content in this directory unless you are comfortable sharing it with
http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010

other users.
Setting a Media Folder
Once the media server is enabled, by default, the Media Folder is set as the Media directory
in the public Shared Folder. To change the Media Folder, click Shared Folders to view a list
of Shared Folders.
Scanning for media content
The Media Server automatically scans for media content on a regular basis. However, you
can click Scan now at any time to force the media server to perform an immediate scan for
media content. This is especially useful after you have changed the Media Folder or after
you copy a large amount of media content to your Iomega StorCenter device.
Using your Iomega StorCenter device as a media server
You can move all of your media files from your individual home computers to your Iomega
StorCenter device and have the ability to access all of your media content from any media
networked device.
The procedures shown below are intended as examples. Your media player or version may
operate slightly differently than documented here. It is recommended that you refer to
your media player documentation on how to add a network device.
Setting up iTunes
This example assumes that the Media Folder is set to the default and that the Shared
Folders are connected to the computer in use.
1. Locate the source directory of your iTunes media content.
2. Drag, or copy, your existing media content to the Music,
Music Pictures,
Pictures or Videos
subfolders of the Media folder located in the Public Shared Folder.
3. When you open the iTunes Library your Media folder will automatically display.
Setting up Xbox 360
This example assumes that the Media Folder is set to the default and that the Shared
Folders are connected to the computer in use.
1. Connect your Xbox 360 to your TV and connect your Xbox to the same local network
as your Iomega StorCenter device.
2. Navigate to the Media tab in Xbox 360 and select Music,
Music Pictures,
Pictures or Videos.

Overview
By default, the Iomega StorCenter device does not burden you with the requirement of
creating an administrator, with user name and password, that requires you to log in to
your own device. In the default setup, any user on your local network can access and
configure your Iomega StorCenter device and security is provided by your local area
network. However, if you have data you wish to secure, want to create unique users or
groups, would like to create secure folders, plan to use Active Directory, or require
additional security, you can optionally enable security.
Access the Security Settings page by navigating to the Settings tab and clicking Security
Settings.

Enabling Security
When you enable security, you will be asked to create an administrator user. With security
enabled, only administrator users can view or change settings on the Iomega StorCenter
device, including creating or deleting users and folders. When security is enabled, data
contained within public folders can still be accessed by anyone within your local network.
To secure any sensitive data, create a secure folder and move your sensitive data into that
folder for safe keeping.
1. Access the Security Settings page by navigating to the Settings tab and clicking
Security Settings.
Settings
2. Select the Enable security checkbox. When Enable security is selected, the create an
administrator user fields display.
NOTE: When security is enabled, browser communications with the device are
encrypted. Therefore, each computer that attempts to access the StorCenter device
may encounter a security warning, which can be safely ignored. In addition, you may
be asked to accept a signed certificate for the StorCenter device, which you should
accept. If you change the device name at a later date, these warnings may appear
again.
3. Enter the following information to create an administrator user:
Username—
Username—enter the username for an administrator user to be created. This
will be the first administrator user created and the only user that can initially
log into this Iomega StorCenter device. A username can be a maximum of 32
characters and spaces are not allowed.
Password—
Password—create a password for this administrator user. For stronger
security, it is recommended that the password be between 8 and 12
characters; spaces are not allowed.
Confirm Password—
Password—confirm the password. If the text in this field does not
match the text in the Password field, an error will be returned.
Remember Username and Password—
Password—check if you wish to have this username
and password remembered on this computer in the future. When checked, you
will not have to enter the login information when accessing the device from
this computer.
NOTE: Iomega StorCenter administrators do not have access to all folders by default.
Access rights to folders must be granted explicitly to administrators, as with other
users.

Port Forwarding
Most home routers or gateways use a NAT firewall to protect your home network from the
Internet.
NAT or Network Address Translation works by hiding your computer's IP address from
internet devices and replacing it with the gateway IP address. It will then forward internet
traffic to the proper computer.
To further protect your home network, the NAT firewall disallows unrequested traffic from
the internet. Some applications, such as Torrents and Remote Access, require unrequested
inbound connections. To use these features with your StorCenter device, you will need to
configure your router to allow inbound connections for these applications. This is known
as Port Forwarding.

http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010
Page 114 of 137
Configuring Port Forwarding
The Iomega StorCenter will attempt to automatically configure your router to port forward
for remote access, once that feature is enabled. If the StorCenter is unsuccessful or if you
need to use other features such as torrent download or FTP, you will need to manually
configure your router.
NOTE: Before port forwarding, you will want to change your StorCenter to a static IP
address.
The port forwarding steps will vary depending on your router. You will need to consult the
user's manual that came with your router for more information. In most cases you should
look for a section on port forwarding OR application access.
Although, Iomega cannot provide you with exact steps for your router, we can provide
some information on settings fields commonly found on Port Forwarding screens. (Not all
fields are found on all devices. Fields may appear in a different order on your router.)
Linksys Users: In addition to Port forwarding you will need to deselect Block Anonymous
Internet Requests on the Firewall settings page.

For step by step instructions on some router models, see Port Forwarding—Router Specific

* Generally the External and Internal port settings will match; however, since a port can
only be forwarded to one device you may need to change the external port to avoid a
forwarding conflict. For example, if your router has external (web) configuration enabled it
may already be using port 443. You may need to set the external port to 8080, etc.
† You can find your StorCenter device's IP address on the Settings → Network Services →
Network Settings screen.
‡ These must match the port range you set in the Torrent Downloads screen under the
Settings tab. Some Internet Service Providers block ports 6881-6999.

Configuring Port Forwarding on Double NAT Networks
If you have more than one router, make sure that the primary router (usually the one
connected to or acting as the DSL/Cable modem) is the only one with DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) and NAT (Network Address Translation) enabled. The second or
cascaded router should be changed to bridging mode. Make sure the second router
connects to the primary router using a standard port rather than the port labeled uplink or
Internet. This will basically turn your secondary router into a switch; however, you can still
enable its Wireless Access Point (if equipped).
See the documentation that came with your router for configuration information and
settings.
If for some reason the network configuration cannot be changed and your setup requires
the double NAT, you must perform the port forwarding steps twice. On the primary router,
port forward to the cascaded router's external IP address. On the Cascaded router, port
forward to the StorCenter's IP address. Use the table above for port settings.

Troubleshooting
If you encounter a problem while connecting or using your StorCenter device, check the
topics listed below for possible solutions.
Click on any of the following topics to expand or close the troubleshooting information.
Drive does not power on
Make sure you are using the power cable that came with your drive. Ensure that it is
correctly connected.
1. Verify that the power cable is connected to the drive.
2. Verify that the power cable is plugged into a working power outlet.
Make sure the status light is on. If it is not, press and release the power button.
When the status light is blue, the drive is ready to use.
For more information, see Initial Setup.
| top of page |
Drive is not recognized on your system
Make sure the drive is powered on. See Connecting the StorCenter device.
Check all connections (power and network).
Make sure you are using a functional Ethernet cable. We suggest using the Ethernet
cable that shipped with your drive. Verify that the link LED on the back of the drive is
on.
Make sure the Ethernet cable is connected to a 10/100/1000Base-T switch, hub, or
router or directly to your computer.
For best results, connect the StorCenter device to the same router as your computer.
Make sure your network only has one device acting as a DHCP server. If your
network has multiple routers, you may have multiple devices running DHCP. See the
documentation that came with your DHCP device to reconfigure your network.

Some models of the StorCenter device will verify its drives once a month. Although
the status light does not show disk activity during this process, the drive
performance will be low. You cannot schedule, quit, or delay the verification. To find
out if your StorCenter drive is performing a disk verification, see the Dashboard in
the StorCenter Storage Manager software. The drive status will display as Verifying...
followed by the percentage complete.

How do I find the drive's IP address?
Run the StorCenter Manager software. Once you have logged into the StorCenter device,
you can find your IP address under Settings→Network
Settings Network Services→Network
Services Network Settings.

| top of page |
How do I find the drive if StorCenter Manager does not work?
Make sure the drive is powered on. See Connecting the StorCenter device.
Check all connections (power and network).
Make sure you are using a functional Ethernet cable. We suggest using the Ethernet
cable that shipped with your drive. Verify that the link LED on the back of the drive is
on.
Make sure the Ethernet cable is connected to a 10/100/1000Base-T switch, hub, or
router or directly to your computer.
For best results, connect the StorCenter ix2 to the same router.
Make sure your network only has one device acting as a DHCP server. If your
network has multiple routers, you may have multiple devices running DHCP. See the
documentation that came with your DHCP device to reconfigure your network.

If the problem persists, you can try alternate methods of discovering the StorCenter. See
the OS-specific steps below:
PC Users:
Windows XP/2000:
1. Double click My Network Places
2. Double click Entire Network
3. Double click Microsoft Windows Network
4. Double click Workgroup
Your Iomega StorCenter Network Hard Drive should have the name StorCenter by default.
Windows 98/ME:
1. Double click Network Neighborhood
2. Double click Entire Network
3. Double click Workgroup
Your Iomega StorCenter Network Hard Drive should have the name StorCenter by default.
Mac Users:
OS X, version 10.2.7 or higher:
1. From the Finder menubar, select Go→Network
Go Network→Workgroup
Network Workgroup.
Workgroup
Your Iomega StorCenter Network Hard Drive should have the name StorCenter by default.

Some Computers on the Network Cannot Connect to the StorCenter
If some of the computers on your network cannot connect to the StorCenter device, your
network may be configured with multiple routers (DHCP & NAT) or with multiple DHCP
servers (some network devices also act as a DHCP device).
If you have more than one router, make sure that the primary router (usually the one
connected to or acting as the DSL/Cable modem) is the only one with DHCP
(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and NAT (Network Address Translation)
enabled. The second or cascaded router should be changed to bridging mode. Make
http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/ix-series/221-0809/en/consolidated/printall.h... 25-7-2010
Page 119 of 137
sure the second router connects to the primary router using a standard port rather
than the port labeled uplink or Internet.
Internet This will basically turn your secondary
router into a switch; however, you can still enable its Wireless Access Point (if
equipped).
See the documentation that came with your router for configuration information and
settings.
Check all other network devices (Network Storage, etc) to make sure any DHCP
server functions are disabled.

How do I change the name of my StorCenter Network Hard Drive?
Always use StorCenter Manager to change the drive's name. Changing the name on your
host computer does not change the name on the network. You can change the device
name using the StorCenter Manager software. When you have logged into the device, click
on device under the Settings tab. This will open the initial configuration wizard.
| top of page |
I changed the Network Name of the drive in Device Settings and I can no longer access it
on my network
Your computer needs to update its list of devices on the network. There are several
possible solutions:
Wait 5 - 15 minutes until your computer automatically updates its list.
Restart your computer. The restart should force your computer to update its list. On
large corporate networks this may not always work.
You may still be able to access the drive using the IP Address (e.g.: \\192.168.3.7 )
until your computer automatically updates its list. See How do I find the device's IP
address?

ports for file / folder sharing.

Why are shares disconnected when I modify users or groups?
Modifying users and groups will cause the StorCenter's Samba (SMB file sharing) service to
restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your
computer should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted.
If your connection is not restored, use the StorCenter Manager software to reconnect to the
StorCenter.
CAUTION! Do not create new users and groups while the StorCenter is performing a data
