RND2120v2 admin password reset?

Hi.

Admin user password forgotten. NAS boots ok. Password_Recovery page displays ok but no email is received even though it confirms all is ok??

The unit is seen by RAIDar utility and says all is healthy. Running firmware 4.1.16

Browse and Admin and Setup pages all ask for the user logon. (I have tried netgear1 and password)
How can I reset the admin user password please?

Thanks!!

Model: RND2120|ReadyNAS Duo 2TB (2 X 1TB)

I just looked here https://kb.netgear.com/29760/How-do-I-recover-a-lost-or-forgotten-administrator-password-on-my-Ready... and it seems to suggest the default username and password were 

  • Username: admin
  • Password: password

It also talks about re-installing the OS as a solution - although this page is about OS6, and you mention 4.1.16 (is that the Raidar Version?)

 

Good luck!

The OP NAS uses OS4 not OS6 so the information given is not relevant

The procedure to follow is shown on Pages 23-24 HERE

Be sure to perform a OS RE-INSTALL ONLY, this will then allow you to login using

admin

netgear1

DO NOT perform a FACTORY RESET, you will lose all your data
