rsync: page allocation failure.

From a Windows 7 PC I am using rsync over ssh to backup files to B3. I've been doing this for some time and it works pretty well. Alongside this I use Paragon to backup the PC's hard drive to an external drive. Recently I added transfer of these very large backup archive files to B3. Each is 4G in s...

Re: B3 grinding noises - disk failing? URGENT!

UPDATE... Ok, the grinding has stopped and the web interface is working again. Raid status is "normal", but the syslog is full of disk errors (see below). Is it normal for RAID to say all is well when clearly there was a problem? What does this mean for my drives? Should I run some diagnostics? All ...

(Actually I wouldn't, I already got backups of it, but I'd doublecheck for sure.)

Thanks Daniel, but it is my backup :-)

B3 grinding noises - disk failing? URGENT!

My B3 is normally silent but a few minutes ago I noticed a grinding noise that sounds like the disk. Its a bit like the sound of something loose rattling about most of the time (though obviously its not quite that!), though occaisionally I'm hearing the "zip zip" of a longer seek operation. I tried ...

Re: B2 LAN/WAN Interface Broken

I timed the install and it took 21 minutes (as predicted for 2T disk according to the manual), so I'm pretty sure it completed properly. Might try the serial port route.

EDIT:
Oh, this assumes I'll be able to enable the WiFi using the console! :-)

Thanks,

B2 LAN/WAN Interface Broken

Some months ago I upgraded my B2 WiFi to a B3 WiFi and at the time thought I had managed to break the LAN on the B2, possibly by connecting them with the wrong kind of network cable. I'd like to be able to use the B2 as a Server, connecting to my B3 via WiFi (with B2 tweaked to act as a client), so....

Can I connect B2 to B3 via WiFi

I have a Bubba|2 WiFi and a B3 WiFi and would like to network them, but in different rooms.

Is it possible to do this with WiFi?

Thanks,

Re: Release notes for Excito B3 software version 2.3.1

My update from the UI got past the 100% after a while, and then stuck with a second bar which is stuck at 0%. At some point it briefly showed a message about "retrying query" or something, but progress remains stuck at 0%. So I tried refresh page and soon after got the pre-update screen. So I click...

Re: Release notes for Excito B3 software version 2.3.1

* If the update doesn't go all the way but hangs just before it should be finished (99 or 100%) this is normal. This is in the transition to the new updater logic. Just wait a few minutes and then reload the page. My update from the UI got past the 100% after a while, and then stuck with a second b...

UPnP support for Microsoft Remote Assistance

Playing with Microsoft Remote Assistance (on Windows 7) I was directed to a test page which checked routers support. My B3 passed everything except UPnP.

Re: ICSI Netalyzr issue

You give up easily as I'm sure we could both improve on the last pseudocode script. But alas I give up easily too, as I can't answer your questions.

I am letting Excito know that Netalyzr is complaining about something that I think is about B3.
