Hi @j666gak

 

You have a v1 since the Duo V2 had it's LED board part of the main board. I can send you a document about the schematics.

Hi @j666gak

 

Can you provide us an image/photo of the pins you need info so we can provide a specific answer?

 

Basically the Duo V2 has three PCB boards

 

Main board - Where the Front LEDs and Power button are mounted, there are no additional pins here.

I/O board - This is for the Ports and connectors on the back of the NAS.

Backplane - Which is for the hard drive connnection

 

Hope this helps!

Also, make sure you have a duo v2.

 

A duo v1

  • runs 4.1.x firmware
  • has a -100XXX at the end of the part number (XXX might be NAS or a country code)
  • might say duo v2 on the rear label (leading to much confusion).

A duo v2

  • runs 5.3.x firmware
  • has a -200XXX at the end of the part number
  • says duo v2 on the front (at the bottom)

ok thanks.

 

Is there any documentation that covers what each of the pins are used for, shown in the red box in the picture I posted.

 

TIA

Re: ReadyNAS Duo v2 - Hardware pins do what?

Netgear has released no schematics or repair manuals for any NAS.  I don't have a Duo V1, but that appears to be a double-sided board that you could follow the traces on.  At the very worst, you could buzz them out.  From what I can see in the picture, the connector on the left is for the LEDs and buttons and the one on the right is the USB.  What is your end goal here?

@Sandshark Thanks for the reply.

 

Basically, I have installed and setup an SBC within the ReadyNAS enclosure/case which is all fine.  Then what I wanted to do is connect the front power button and LEDs to the GPIO pins on the SBC. Which is why I wanted to know which pin relates to what.

 

When I am home next I will try connecting to pins and will work it out, I was trying to plan ahead asking for documentation.

 

Thanks
