Buffalo TeraStation shutdown script

In 25 years, desktop storage has jumped from the IBM PC with a 360K-byte floppy drive to Buffalo Technology's TeraStation, which offers 1T byte of capacity. We can make a good case for small businesses, workgroups at larger businesses, and even upscale home networks (digital video fans gobble gigabytes like candy) to plop down $1, 000 for a terabyte of disk storage.

How we did it

While Buffalo says the TeraStation combines ease of use with enterprise-class features, we were a bit skeptical. True, the installation of the network-attached storage (NAS) box was quick and easy, and you can apply the enterprise label because of the terabyte capacity. But any enterprise-class storage device should include more management tools, directory integration and hot-swappable disk drives, all lacking in the TeraStation.

Installation included automatically finding an open IP address upon booting (once we gave the administrator password to enable client DHCP settings) and making an easy connection from a Windows client running the management utility from an enclosed CD. TeraStation only supports Linux connections via Server Message Block Windows networking, but our Xandros 3.0 Linux Desktop had no problem accessing the unit that way. Default settings include enabling AppleShare but not FTP (having anonymous FTP access on by default isn't secure), and the four Western Digital 243G-byte disk drives are set to spanning mode, pooling all the disk space into one huge volume.

You can run the system in Standard Mode, where each disk becomes a separate volume; Mirroring Mode, where pairs of disks match up in a RAID-1 mirror configuration, which gives you two fault-tolerant 500M-byte volumes; or RAID-5 mode, which cuts the disk space by 25%, to 750G bytes, but increases performance and fault tolerance to survive a failure of any one disk. A journaling file system also improves reliability, mounting speed and failure recovery. These are high-end storage features, and if the drives were hot-swappable we wouldn't argue about the enterprise label.
