I need data from my WD EX4 transfered to a server running CentOS. The server is in a remote data center, and they will only allow the NAS to have a direct ethernet connection to the server, so they will plug in an ethernet cable directly from the NAS into the server.
I’m not that network savvy and wonder how the NAS should be configured before it is shipped to them, as I am quite sure the dashboard cannot be accessed.
I assume the way to do it is to leave the NAS with the default configuration to use DHCP, and then setup a DHCP server on the server, and voila, things should work.
Did anybody try this and can confirm this is the way to do it? I’d hate to have the NAS shipped to the remote data center and have it sit there “dead” because it was not setup correctly.
Any advice much appreciated!
