Re: Unable to reflash stora

Thank you very much Gitsov for helping restore Stora’s work.
There was also a problem with the Stora agent, it is related to the settings of Windows 10.
Helped fix the problem too Gitsov

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Can someone post the flash instructions? MIne worked great until about 2 months ago and I haven't felt like dealing with it until now. I can't login, but it works and both drives appear to be working. Will this re-flashing cause data loss?

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hi Gitsov,

my unit stop working some months ago.

I was able to reach it via SSH (putty/Filezilla) but during some modifications to the smb.conf file, maybe (I forgot!!) I should have done something wrong with the root password or with an update... I really don't remember.

Now I can't login as a root anymore!! Any possible root passwords don't work.

I have tried to re-flash the unit (15 sec procedure), hoping to reset to factory defaults (including root password!) but I can't still login.

So!! Before bringing the unit to the trash bin, is there anything I can still do to grant root access? 

Many thanks in advance!!

Fabrizio

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hi all

 

I have a similar issue.  I've done a factory reset and now, because I can't activate the Stora, and my exisitng user account was deleted in the factoryt reset, I have a bricked Stora :-(.  Can anyone share a solution to get the unit activated and new admin account created?

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Everyone ... please hold on a while. I need to get back at home from work and check what's going on. Probably in upcoming days I will try to do something.

At least this night I need to reset my unit and to check for reliable method to register/activate it offline. There was a solution for a maybe last year or two for backing-up registration data, but it works on previously registered unit. On "virgin" ones, without existing backup it won't work or not as expected.

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hi Gitsov,

I have written to DexterJB and he gives to me the correct data but now when accessing the Stora I can reach the registration page anymore. It stops..
When you come back to home if you remember give me some idea pls.

Many thanks,

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hello,

 

I am exactly in the same case after having reset factory my stora (https://ibb.co/Bf3Ctkn)because I no longer remembered my password. I just saw that mystora.com is no longer accessible since April 1. I hope there is a solution in order to pass this step and to be able to use the stora locally because I can't imagine sending a perfectly functioning NAS to the trash ...

Re: Unable to reflash stora

I am looking on this. Unfortunately I am overloaded on my dayjob where I am getting my monthly funds for living, so it will take a time. I had working solution for backing-up activation data of already actuvated unit for a maybe last 2 years, but now obviously it requires rework to bypass missing servers.

Please bear with me. There will be solution.

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Today I solved the problem and switched to Seagate Blackarmor 440. After years of stuttering from Stora, I turned on a serious NAS

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hello, I also have a stora that was working until i had to replace my network and now I am unable to access it or see it on the network, I do believe it has something to do with ip differences but is there a way to reset this unit so i am able to use it again or am I doomed to build a storage server of my own?

Thank you in advance, John

Running windows 10 pro and this unit is for a home entertainment storage setup

Re: Unable to reflash stora

I'm in the same situation; reflashed my Stora after it crashed (again!) but it can't connect to the server any more to download the firmware and complete the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Unable to reflash stora

I wish I had any information for you but I had to scrap the stora unit and build my own, lost all my data but this one is working better than any stora I have ever used. Old pc, 4 hdd's and free software now I'm good to go.

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hi guys.

 

I found a working MS2000 nas and managed to softbrick it. Made factory reset, as nobody knew the passwords there. Now it is stuck in registration, trying to reach servers, that probably don't exist any more. I understand there is a clever workaround? I am ready and willing to buy a coffe and a croissaint to anyone, who can help to bring it back to life.

 

Thanks!

Re: Unable to reflash stora

Hello Gitsov,

Three years ago, you save my stora. Since this periode, we use it as a backup storage ; the unit is not ON all the time.

This evening I start it but the bleue led stay in blinking mode.

I try to use the restore procedure with the usb key inside. Unfortunately, I didn't see HDD lights blinking 7 times.

Do you think I missed something or I should use the VM procedure to restart my stora ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Regards,

E.
