Change of domain on Easystore NAS running AD mode
Posted on 2009-05-08
I've recently rebuilt an SBS 2003 box after (imminent) hardware failure, and for various reasons have given the box a new internal domain name - still pickup up the same mail and serving the same clients - all rejoined without issue.
I do have a problem with an Acer Easystore (2Tb), which is connected to the old domain. If I disconnect and "leave it swinging", I can get NO access to the shared folder as there is no AD to authenticate against - I get message "the security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship"
I've managed to regain access to the box by changing the IP of the server originally registered to the NAS, but the software on the NAS wont permit a change of domain for AD authentication.
Before I strip off over 3/4 Tb of info to cradle drives and re-initialise the NAS, can anyone offer a simpler, more engineer friendly solution? I really need to change the domain this system is authenticating against, but there seems to be no option in the provided interface.
I have been unable to get even an acknowledgement from Tech support at Acer.
I wonder whether the operating system on this NAS is Linux or some derivative (busy box? - the only info I can find on the "internals" of this box is that the chipset is an Intel® 8MB NOR Flash), and if so, is there another way into it? - Im no Linux expert; but I'll have a try, and maybe learn something as well!
Any help please?
