Installing PMS on Raidsonic IB-NAS4220-B NAS

Postby mx5gr » Sun Apr 26, 2009 6:59 pm

As I am a PC M$ advanced user, opposed to my ultra novice Linux level, I recently purchased a NAS case from Raidsonic, IB-NAS4220-B, which is based on Linux -> http://www.raidsonic.de/en/pages/produc ... ectID=5052
Raidsonic give out even the sources for the NAS software -> http://www.raidsonic.de/de/data/driver/ ... (Raidsonic).zip http://www.raidsonic.de/de/data/driver/ ... loader.zip

Can someone help towards integrating the PMS with this NAS or provide some instructions on where to look for implementing PMS ? I assume that the java engine inclusion would be a start, however I am that novice that I cannot seem to find a way to do it so myself... :oops:

It all depends on what you're running on the NAS, but here's a good place to start:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=486

In particular, look at Atrem's later post(s)...


If you can give more details about the OS (which linux flavor? debian? redhat? gentoo?) you're running, it will be easier to help you...

Thanx for replying...

The specs are:
Code: Select all
ARM 9 400MHz Processor / SDRAM: 64MB / 2 x 3.5" SATA bays / Supports RAID 0, 1, JBOD, Span (NRAID) / Server support: Samba, FTP, NFS, DHCP, UPnP-AV (30 days trial), iTunes support


Tried to follow the instructions in the forum post you sent me, however I stumbled upon some issues. The access to the NAS is only via telnet (SSH is not available). All directories, /volume1/, /usr/ etc that are required for the ARM bootstrap to get installed are read-only. FTP access is not allowed in the server root. Only within /mnt/ directory and downwards. SFTP is not available.

The available commands are:
Code: Select all
BusyBox v1.00-rc3 (2008.02.14-01:00+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

Built-in commands:
-------------------
        . : alias bg break cd chdir continue eval exec exit export false
        fg hash help jobs kill let local pwd read readonly return set
        shift times trap true type ulimit umask unalias unset wait


After some investigation, tried to get root access. It seems now that neither volumes (1 & 2) reported by the device have the required space (only 3MB reported). Hence, is it possible to install ipkg and all the associated packages within the /mnt/md1/applications directory, which is located on the hard disks, and not within /usr/lib as specified in the .sh files of the bootstrap? Will ipkg run from that directory and not /usr/lib

I apologise if my question or description of the situation is basic, but I am a novice Linux user.

Hmm, well, i think that you're going to have to set up the NAS properly before you can consider installing PMS on it. You'll need a way to access the box w/ root privileges (SSH is mostly for security). I could be wrong, but i dont think that there is an optware feed for your system, so all the ipkg stuff doesnt really apply. However, you should look at this site:
http://en.nas-4220.org/index.php/Main_Page

It looks like you could install debian on it:
http://en.nas-4220.org/index.php/HowTo% ... 8chroot.29


Sorry, but it seems like you have a ways to go before you can get PMS running on your NAS. ;)

Good luck!
