System log errors on NAS drive

Hello:

I have 2 My Book World Edition II NAS drives. They both are configured to use a static IP address and both are on the same workgroup.

One of them is supposed to be replaced with a newer one that I just installed yesterday.

What I am trying to do is to transfer all the information from NAS1 to NAS2.

Both are connected to a router.

I created a batch file that was basically several xcopy commands to copy all the information from NAS1 to NAS2.

As this process was going to take like 8 hours I ran the batch file yesterday at 4:00PM when everyone was logged off the NAS drives.

To my surprise this morning I found out that only a portion of the files were copied from the NAS1 to the NAS2.

After reading the system logs of the NAS1 drive I found a lot of errors.For example:


getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected

Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Connection reset by peer)

write_data: write failure in writing to client 192.168.10.105. Error Connection reset by peer

Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Connection reset by peer)

write_data: write failure in writing to client 192.168.10.105. Error Connection reset by peer

Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Connection reset by peer)

write_data: write failure in writing to client 192.168.10.105. Error Connection reset by peer

Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Connection reset by peer)

write_data: write failure in writing to client 192.168.10.105. Error Connection reset by peer

writing 4 bytes to client. -1. (Connection reset by peer)

write_data: write failure in writing to client 0.0.0.0. Error Connection reset by peer

getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected


The logs of the NAS2 drive do not have any errors.

Anyone knows what those error mean?

A failing hard drive from the NAS1? Or maybe a network configuration problem?

By the way I have never updated the firmware on either NAS drive.

Thanks and help is greatly appreciated.

robertin75, maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.

Dear Trancer:

Unfortunately they are clueless about my problem.

Not only that but thet know nothing about IT and networks.

One of the “specialist” technical support person told me that the NAS wasn’t able not transfer 100GB of data to a hard drive because I was using a 100Mb ethernet port.

Go figure !!!

He was mixing apples with pears.

Another “specialist” told me: “That issue is too complicated for us as NAS drives are only meant to be used at home and not with VPN routers”

Thanks,

Roberto

Have you checked the router logs?

Nope, will do it.

Thanks
