It's a 2 x 500Gb drive White Light unit. I've broken the RAID so it's JABOD and installed Debian Squeeze on there as per the instructions floating around on here.
After some fiddling (I'm no expert!), I managed to get SAMBA working for my PCs and Macs to use the box for file storage and backups. Then got minidlna going so I could stream to Xbox, Sony media player and tablets. All fine and dandy and working for 2-3 weeks until this weekend.
For some reason the box is now going "offline" every few hours. It can be mid-stream, or when it's sat otherwise idle. Everything goes, but the drive itself doesn't power down. Network shares vanish, streaming halts, I can't connect via SSH and it even vanishes from the router's "connected hardware" table.
If I press the power button on the back, it whirs and clicks then shuts down after 15-20 seconds. I then wait, power it back up again and a minute or so later all is fine and dandy.
I've checked the messages and system logs and can't spot anything obvious. When I hit the power button to down it, the logs are reporting a graceful shutdown so the box is definitely live in some way at that point.
I'm happy to post relevant areas of any scripts, logs and so on up here if anyone reckons they could have a clue? I don't think it's power saving or anything as I've made *no* tweaks or changes since I got it working a couple of weeks ago. The only thing I can even remotely think that could have caused an issue is the fuses in our cupboard tripping about a week back which will have caused the box to drop offline without being shut down correctly. However, it's worked fine for about 5-6 days after this before the problem I'm having has shown itself.
Any thoughts before I bite the bullet and let the wife spend £130 on a new unit?
