Before You Begin
Before going through with this manual, you should read and focus to the following safety
guidelines. Notes about the subsystem product packaging and delivery are also included.
Safety Guidelines
To provide reasonable protection against any harm on the part of the user and to obtain
maximum performance, user is advised to be aware of the following safety guidelines
particularly in handling hardware components:
Upon receiving of the product:
™ Place the product in its proper location.
™ To avoid unnecessary dropping out, make sure that somebody is around for
immediate assistance.
™ It should be handled with care to avoid dropping that may cause damage to the
product. Always use the correct lifting procedures.
Upon installing of the product:
™ Ambient temperature is very important for the installation site. It must not exceed
30°C. Due to seasonal climate changes; regulate the installation site temperature
making it not to exceed the allowed ambient temperature.
™ Before plugging-in any power cords, cables and connectors, make sure that the
power switches are turned off. Disconnect first any power connection if the power
supply module is being removed from the enclosure.
™ Outlets must be accessible to the equipment.
™ All external connections should be made using shielded cables and as much as
possible should not be performed by bare hand. Using anti-static hand gloves is
recommended.
™ In installing components, secure all the mounting screws and locks. Make sure that
all screws are fully tightened. Follow correctly all the listed procedures in this manual
for reliable performance.
Packaging, Shipment and Delivery
™ Before removing the subsystem from the shipping carton, you should visually inspect
the physical condition of the shipping carton.
™ Unpack and verify that the contents of the shipping carton are complete and in good
condition.
™ Exterior damage to the shipping carton may indicate that the contents of the carton
are damaged.
™ If any damage is found, do not remove the components; contact the dealer where
you purchased the subsystem for further instructions.

Chapter 1 Introduction
The NAS System
Storage networks become more and more complex. If you need to easily expand storage
capacity while providing uninterrupted high-performance data access across your LAN. You
may want to consider a NAS (Network Attached Storage) appliance. When budgets are tight
and a quick fix is required, a NAS appliance is a low-cost, efficient solution to dodge that
network-to-storage logjam. That's why more and more users select NAS architecture as
their storage networking.
The EN-T800A-CM (SATA II NAS Subsystem) is a reliable, cost-effective way to add storage
to the network. It comes with 8 drive trays accommodating 3.5" SATA II drives while SCA II
single connector architecture enables true hot swap capability. Built-in Intel Celeron 1.6G
CPU (or above) up to 42GB DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM and two Gigabit Ethernet ports offer
high performance NAS platform. Linux based embedded OS design, it can boot without HDD,
FDD or CD-ROM to guarantee reliability and quick boot. The EN-T800A-CM system is
managed and configured by Flex / Ruby browser based software, including pre-configure
disk capacity, users setting, volume management, quick installed on popular network
platform, Multi protocol support, etc... Equipped with RAID function to offer fault tolerant
data protection. It is a full featured data protection supporting RAID levels 0、1、5、6, 10,
Linear (JBOD).
System reliability is ensured by an environmental monitoring unit, which tracks the
enclosure temperature as well as individual disk temperatures. If any irregularity in these
systems occurs, the monitoring unit alerts the administrator.

Every Disk Tray has 2 status indicator lights. The Disk Status Indicator light is for
Power On/Error status. When this light is GREEN the disk drive’s power is on and
everything is functioning normally. When the light is RED, a disk error or failure has
happened that requires the user’s attention. When disk is in rebuilding status, the LED
is blinking RED.
The other status indicator light is the hard disk drive access light. Access LED will light
up blue if the SAS HD is installed. Access LED will not light up if the SATA HD is
installed. When the hard disk drive is being accessed, this light will flash BLUE.
In addition, both indicator lights are viewable within a 170° arc.

2.3.4 Quick Setup
The Quick Setup provides a quick and easy way to setup the basic
NAS configuration. This function will create the NASVG, which is a
Volume Group that holds the NAS configurations and must be created
or initialized the first time the NAS is used. The Quick Setup will make
use of all available disk drives in the NAS.
The Quick Setup options are listed below:
1. RAID
This is used for selecting the RAID Level.
2. Storage/Share
This shows the default Home share capacity which can be changed. It also shows
default share named “share” which can be renamed and whose size can be changed.
3. Network Adapter
This is for configuring the primary Ethernet interface LAN0 (eth0) network settings.
After changing the settings, admin need to login using the new IP address.
4. Service
This is for enabling the basic file sharing Services provided by proNAS. Windows
(Samba) service is enabled by default.
The Quick Setup Steps:
1. Configure the software RAID by selecting the RAID Level.
The RAID Level options are:
(a) Max. Capacity (RAID0)
(b) Clone Data (RAID1)
(c) Max. Security (RAID5)
Without initializing – This will create the Raid storage device without
initialization.
