ReadyNAS Serial Console Support Documentation
I have more than one ReadyNAS six-bay network storage device. The RN426 includes a micro-USB connector on the rear panel and I was able to leverage that to install a Raspberry Pi as a serial console monitor and alerting system. However, when I checked the RN516, there is a 2x2 matrix of a 4-pin TTL-level serial console, and I can find no documentation of the pins.
First, Iw ould like to have documentation available of the hardware, including the RN516 serial console pins, and second I'd like to see future ReadyNAS units standardize on the micro-USB connector.
[Serial console access is needed when the unit goes "off the network" for unknown reasons and there are no errors other than a cryptic variable name on the front display. Because of the Netgear "warranty over, you're on your own" Community support model, having this kind of documentation is critical.]
