After upgrading from 1.12 to 1.16 the shares on the encrypted volume are not shown in the shares list after unlocking the volume.


Restoring a system config from before the upgrade does not change anything


who can help?

Hi Jerry


I  have had the same problem after a successful upgrade.


I found a strange solution to fix this issue, I realy don't know if this works for you.


our setup:

- encrypted volume with 2 shares

- CIFS Access only


Try to do something like this:


- Enable FTP (and the Root directory your encrypted volume)

- After the configuration rebuild I saw my "old" shares, but I couldn't connect

- Add FTP to this shares

- Access via FTP to this volume/shares, that should work

- Disable CIFS Access on the shares

- Remove User rights from the shares

- update configuration

- Enable CIFS access on the shares

- Add rights on the Shares

- update configuration


After this, it works for me.


Don't ask why the shares are there after enablin the ftp, it's seems that after a configuration change on the shares/volume and rebuild the configuration, they get back....


good luck


roger

tnx Roger


this did work BUT after a reboot in shares were gone again


after trying the same setup steps a couple of times I had the same result so I tried something else


- Enable FTP (and the Root directory your encrypted volume)

- After the configuration rebuild I saw my "old" shares

- Add FTP to the shares, Disable CIFS Access on the shares

- Remove User rights from the shares

- update configuration

- reboot


after the reboot I could not see the shares anymore even after trying the steps that worked before,


also after creating a new FTP share without the users or groups after a reboot I cannot see the new share. there is something really wrong in rel 1.16


any ideas?

had contact with cisco


advice is to

- us explorer (not internet explorer) to go to "//IP-number-of-nss/storage"

(note : make sure you are not connected to nss with explorer)

- login with admin

- goto RAIDA, volume

- Copy all data

- switch to explorer and login on IP address

- delete volume

- Create new shares

- Copy data back
