NSS6000 - Got started setting up new unit and have questions with SMTP alerts / Encryption
I have just bought myself an NSS6000 and got it all setup yesterday. Upgraded from 1.14 to latest 1.16 version as well. Its all going nicely with 1TB Raid 1 setup, but have a few tweaks I need help with and can not find any documentation on it:
1)_ Email Alerts: Allows only for SMTP server Name/IP, but no where can I setup the User authentication or port. How come??
2)_ FAN noise: The power supply fan is very noise on idle. Even swapped it with one of the bay fans, but still... this seems to be the way the system throttles it to keep the RPMs in range. Anyway this could be setup to be quieter?
3)_ Encryption: Once I have created an unencrypted volume can I "edit" it to be encrypted? Cant seem to be able to. Also, if I encrypt the drives; and the NSS fails, can I put these onto a PC/Server and read the drives with some sort of decrypting software? Or would I require to have another NSS made available to access the drive's data?
3b)_ How about being able to access an encrypted backup created by the NSS onto an external USB storage device? (from a Windows/Linux based machine, of course).
