QNAP TS-110: how to replace HDD?
I thought that it's a common procedure to replace the HDD of a QNAP NAS.
Searching the web does not reveal really exact information, including
After partitioning the new HDD (with the same layout as before) and
copying data from the old one to the new one I tried
But being stupid, my problem was already in the first line: "Start the
Debian installer". How to start that installer?
Ok, I tried to follow the standard QNAP Debian installation guide
one did not like me, because getcfg was missing (an executable from the
original QNAP firmware I guess). So I tried the installation guide from
the TS-109. And - it was a bad day - I flashed the images of the TS-109
into my TS-110. Bad luck.
Nevertheless UBoot saved me
having a serial console attached.
I tried "recovery mode"
beforehand. But that did not help me, because it is wrong that DHCP is
used - correctly it should be BOOTP(?).
Long story, short questions...
- how to actually replace the HDD?
- how to start the Debian installer?
- is recovery using DHCP or BOOTP?
