I'm having an issue with my Western Digital My Book World Edition 1.0 TB NAS device. The unit had worked perfectly for about 4 months, and then for about 2 months I had my LAN down for reconfiguration (new switches, VLANs, linux based router, rewiring, etc).
During this down-time, I forgot the password to access my files on the drive. After doing some reading on the unit and the drive's filestructure, and discovering that it was a Linux EXT3 disk structure, I disassembled the unit & put the drive in my CentOSv5.2 Quad Core system, figuring to extract the files & programs that I wanted. That did NOT work, as the drive would not mount.
I then reassembled the drive, and I followed the enclosed instructions to reset the drive security, and reset the Admin password to 123456. I also reset my user password, and gave my user account full rights to the shares.
Since that time, using my user credentials (e151280 & password), I have only been able to access my files in a READ-ONLY fashion, and cannot add/move/rename/delete any files on the WD NAS.
I followed the online instructions for setting up SSH access into the NAS, and can log in as Admin, and can add/move/delete/rename files from the command line as Admin. I also turned off MIONET, by commenting out the MIONET start command in the startup script, and even ran the 'chown' command recursively, to make my userid the owner of all of the files in the /shares/internal/PUBLIC directory, but when accessing my files over the LAN from WindowsXP file manager, my access is still READ-ONLY.
This is where I am stuck. As I am an old-school DOS/UNIX/LINUX CLI type person, I have been managing the files in an SSH command line session, but this is cumbersome. I'd REALLY like to manage the files in a GUI under Windows.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
