Hi

I'm installing the following device -

http://www.buffalo-technology.com/en/products/storage-devices/business-nas/terastationtm/archive/terastation-tm-iii-iscsi-rackmount/


Server OS - 2003 -

I cannot seem to find any documentation regarding the installation of this device.


I want the extra storage so I can use the device as a back up to disk in backup exec.

Should i use ISCSI or NAS?

I have documentation but it does not describe how to install the unit on a network. I want to have it on the network as shared folder. A shared folder I can add in backup exec as a backup to disk.

I assume when you say installation you mean setting it up on the network etc?

Standard way these devices work is through a web browser - they usually pick up an IP from your router(does it come with a CD at all?)
If you know the ip or can find it(I'm not familiar with this product range) then you should be able to login and configure it from there...but they can come with a software package to allow you to find/config it as well(QNAP/Netgear models have this)

Actually it does - http://www.buffalo-technology.com/en/products/storage-devices/business-nas/terastationtm/archive/terastation-tm-iii-iscsi-rackmount/?subaction=downloads&no_cache=1

The TeraNavigator application is what you need...get that and you can start getting this operational

As for whether to use iSCSI or NAS I would stick to the simpler one - NAS, since this will primarily be a backup device I can't see any reason to go the iSCSI route at all...
