USB Hard disk accessed through File Server box; cannot save to the network drive, No Write access?
Posted on 2009-02-15
I have attached a USB external hard drive ( Seagate FreeAgent) to an Ovislink MU5000 FileServer - and it duly appears as a network resource when accessed from the network. However, I find that although they can access all the files, users cannot save or write on to the external hard drive from the network, although I have set all the Samba session settings to be Read/Write for all users in the OvisLink web-based admin panel.
I see that when I connect a USB flash stick to the OvisLink fileserver - I am able to fully access it including write access - so am mystified as to why it does not work with the Seagate FreeAgent.
