I finally got my own MBL the other day. The first thing I did was go through and update it to the latest firmware (02.32.05-044). The update installed without a hitch, and it looked like I was up and running. I went exploring around the Dashboard and started see errors when I went to the Users, Shares, and Safepoints sections (32102, 33166, and 35550 respecitvely, all three saying internal errors happened).
I did some searching around the forums, and saw a couple of posts mentioning I should perform a factory restore on the NAS. I went to the System -> Utilties tab to reformat, and I can’t actually get to the tab. It just stays at the ‘Loading…’ screen. After a couple of minutes, the ‘Loading…’ widget is gone and I’m still at whatever screen I was before.
Okay, fine. So I read up about other ways to reformat by ssh’ing into the box and running the /usr/local/sbin/factoryRestore.sh bash script. I ran the command, and let it sit overnight and while I was at work. When I checked the next day, nothing seemed to happen, and I was still getitng the errors.
So finally, to my question: what other ways can I try to reformat my NAS? Someone have a link to older firmware I can downgrade to? Is there a different bash script tucked away I can run?
