Welcome

Thank you for choosing the Cisco Small Business Smart Storage. The

NSS324 and NSS326 are Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that appear 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.

• The NSS324 is a 4-bay desktop Network Attached Storage device.

• The NSS326 is a 6-bay desktop Network Attached Storage device.

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 that is available 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 (Linear) —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.

RAID 0 —Distributes data across several disks which gives improved speed and full capacity. All data on all disks will be lost if any one disk fails.

RAID 1 —Uses two disks (mirrored disks) which each store the same data, so that data is not lost if one disk fails. Total capacity of the array equals the capacity of a single disk.

RAID 5 —Combines three or more disks in a way that protects data against loss of any one disk.

RAID 6 —Combines four or more disks in a way that protects data against loss of any two disks.

• File system:

EXT4 —EXT4 is the successor to EXT3 and provides better performance because the EXT4 file system can support very large volumes (default).

EXT3 —EXT3 is commonly used in the Linux environment.

EXT3 provides reliability file systems with a maximum capacity support up to 16 terabytes (TB).

• Encrypt disk volume:

No —Do not encrypt the disk volume (default).

Yes —Encrypt the disk volume using a password.

If you choose yes, the disk volume is encrypted with a password and provides an extra layer of security against the theft of data in the event that disks are stolen. File transfer performance to encrypted volumes is generally lower than non-encrypted volumes.The default encryption password is the password of the administrator account.

Total capacity of the array equals the capacity of the smaller disk.

• RAID 5 —Combines three or more disks in a way that protects data against loss of any one disk.

• RAID 6 —Combines four or more disks in a way that protects data against loss of any two disks.

System Configuration Using Linux or Mac OS X

Use the following procedure to configure the NAS device using Linux or as an option to the Mac Setup Wizard when configuring the NAS device using

Mac OS X.

S TEP 1 Connect the NAS to the computer directly and power on the device.

S TEP 2

The NAS Ethernet ports support MDI/MDI-X auto-switching.

Verify the IP address of your computer is configured to the same subnet as the NAS device. For example: 192.168.1.1.

S TEP 3 Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the NAS device.

For example: http://192.168.1.50:8080

This is the default static IP address if DHCP is not enabled. If the

NAS device does not have a static IP address and if the device is not able to receive an IP address via DHCP, it will default to

192.168.1.50. If the DHCP server on your network is enabled, as soon as the DHCP server responds, the NAS device will accept an

IP address even if the default static IP address is assigned.

N OTE

If your operating system is Linux, refer to the LCD display on the front panel of the NAS device and configure the IP address to match the network.

S TEP 4 Follow the prompts to complete the configuration. Continue to
