server with more than one internal disk can only format them using methods that produce a
single logical volume (array). The format tool works on internal StorCenter Pro disks ONLY, it
will not format external USB devices.

Arrays are devices that combine multiple physical disks into a single logical volume. RAID,
or Redundant Array of Inexpensive (or Independent) Disks, is a method of combining
multiple disks for data redundancy in case of a disk failure. This section describes each of
the different types of arrays supported by Iomega StorCenter Pro server with two internal
disks.

      Spanned (JBOD)—Similar to RAID 0 in the sense that multiple hard disks are
      combined to make one large volume. Data is not written in parallel to multiple disks.
      Data is written to a single disk until it is full and then written to the next disk in the
      set. Spanning does not provide any data redundancy. Spanning requires two or more
      hard disks.

      Striped (RAID 0)—RAID 0 uses a technique called data striping. Multiple hard disks
      are combined to make one large volume. RAID 0 can read and write faster than a
      simple configuration, since it splits the data and accesses all disks in parallel. RAID 0
      does not provide any data redundancy. RAID 0 requires two or more hard disks.

      RAID 0+1—RAID 0+1 Creates a mirror (RAID 1) out of two Striped (RAID 0) volumes.
      RAID 0+1 provides the same benefits as RAID 1, but allows you to use more than two
      drives (must be an even number). The RAID capacity is half of the physical drives.

      RAID 5—RAID 5 provides the best balance of data redundancy and disk capacity. Like
      RAID 0, RAID 5 stripes all of the available disks into one large volume; however, the
      space equivalent to one hard drive will be used to store parity data. If a hard drive
      fails, the Iomega StorCenter Pro server will rebuild your files using the parity data.
      RAID 5 requires at least 3 hard drives.

CAUTION! Some RAID configurations add a level of redundancy for your data; however,
RAID should not be your only means of backup.

Safe Removal—Click the Safe Removal link next to the USB drive you wish to remove
before disconnecting the drive.

Enable USB Storage Devices—Check this option if you wish automatically share USB storage
devices. USB devices will appear in the USBStorage share.

OK/Cancel—Your settings will NOT be updated unless you click the OK button. Click the
Cancel button to reset the form.

LAN
Network Mode—Select the method the StorCenter Pro server will use to obtain an IP
address—DHCP Client or Static.

DHCP Client—Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. The StorCenter Pro server will obtain
its LAN IP settings from the DHCP server on the local network. By default, the StorCenter Pro
server is configured to use DHCP.

IP Address—Displays the StorCenter Pro server's IP address. If no DHCP server is found the
StorCenter Pro server will automatically default to an IP address in the 169.254.x.x range.

Subnet Mask—Displays the StorCenter Pro server's subnet mask. If no DHCP server is found
the StorCenter Pro server will automatically default to a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0.

Static—If your network does not have a DHCP server, you must set a static IP address for
your StorCenter Pro server to function properly

IP Address—Enter an IP address for your StorCenter Pro server. The IP address of each
device in the local area network must be within the same IP address range and subnet mask.
For a small subnet with less than 253 IP addresses assigned (e.g. Class C private IP), each
device in the LAN (Local Area Network) needs to have a unique IP Address in the format of
169.254.x.x to connect to other devices within the same network.
Subnet Mask—Specify the subnet mask for the StorCenter Pro server. The Subnet mask
must be the same for all devices on the same subnet of the network. The default subnet
setting is 255.255.0.0. Keep this default setting if your LAN has an IP address range in the
format of 169.254.x.x.

Gateway—If your network has a router or gateway, enter its address here.

Domain Name—Internet Search Domain. Enter the internet search domain for your ISP
account. This is usually in the form of mycompany.com.

DNS Server—Domain Name System. DNS translates IP addresses into more easily
understandable names such as MyComputer.MyCompany.com . Enter the IP address of one
or more DNS servers.

Enable Jumbo Frame Support—Allows the StorCenter Pro server to send over-sized data
packets. This allows the device to send more data per packet which increases the speed and
efficiency of the network connection and reduces processor utilization.

Filenaming Conventions
When sharing files on a network, you must choose filenames that are compatible with all
devices that will use the file. The StorCenter Network Hard Drive shares files using the SMB
(Server Message Block) protocol and stores its files on a FAT32 hard drive. You will need to
use characters supported by these filesystems to successfully share your files. Any filename
supported by a Windows PC should work with most platforms.

Invalid filenames:

      Any filename containing the characters: " / \ < > ? : * |
      Any filename that contains extended characters such as Á, À, Ã, Ä, etc. (characters
      typed with the the Ctrl key on the Mac).
      Any filename that ends with a space or period.
      Any filename that begins with a period.
      some filenames such as comX, lptX, con, nul, prn, etc. maybe reserved for use by the
      operating system of your client computer (where X represents a number).
      Although filenames may be up to 256 characters long, the file path is limited to 260
      characters in some operating systems. For best results, use short filenames.

Failure to comply with naming guidelines may result in the following error messages:

      File name too long
      Cannot copy file
      Cannot read from source file or disk
      Error message -43

        StorCenter Pro Drives and Arrays               Sharing a USB Printer




Protecting Your Data
Follow these guidelines to protect your data against potential disasters:

During Normal Operation
      Always:

             Back up your Iomega StorCenter Pro

             As with any computer hardware or peripheral, it is highly recommended
             that you back up your StorCenter Pro. A backup can be performed either
             directly to a backup device or to another server over a TCP/IP network.

             Use an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

             To protect your StorCenter Pro device against power loss and/or power
             surges, an external UPS device is recommended.

             Have a spare StorCenter Pro hot-swappable hard drive available

             Some RAID configurations allow a single hard drive to be replaced while
             in normal operation. As a result, Iomega recommends that you have a
             spare hard drive available in the event of a hard drive failure. This will
             permit a faster return to normal performance speeds.

             Enable email alert notifications

             The StorCenter Pro has been designed with an email alert notification
             system. During initial device setup, specify the administrator's email
             address and an appropriate SMTP server.



| top of page |



In the Event of a Hard Drive Failure
      Always:

             Verify the failed hard drive number

             Before removing a hard drive, verify the location of the failed drive by
             checking email notifications, administration UI alerts and logs. If an
             additional functioning drive (other than the failed drive) is removed, data
             loss will result!
      Never:

             Remove more than one hard drive at a time

             The StorCenter Pro can continue operating after a single drive failure. Do
             NOT remove any other drives while there is a failed drive in the system or
             while the replacement drive is being restored.

             Insert a spare hot-swappable hard drive until the StorCenter Pro
             operating system shows the missing drive

             When a hard drive is removed, the system may take a few minutes to
             recognize the removal. Do NOT insert a replacement drive until the
             Iomega StorCenter Pro has recognized the drive removal. The Iomega
             StorCenter Pro will notify you of a hard drive removal through a
             notification email or the graphical user interface (GUI).

             Interrupt the system rebuild process

             After inserting the replacement drive, you MUST allow the RAID volume to
             restore. An active restoration is indicated by either a flashing status LED
             in conjunction with continuous hard drive activity, or by continuous
             independent hard drive activity. During this process, do NOT remove any
             of the hard drives or power down the StorCenter Pro. This process may
             take many hours depending on the capacity of the RAID volume and
             amount of data that is being restored.

                                                       Iomega StorCenter Pro?



The Iomega StorCenter Pro comes preconfigured with a RAID 5 array. Your Iomega
StorCenter Pro has hot-swappable hard drives for increased data accessibility and ease of
maintenance. To enhance your experience with your Iomega StorCenter Pro, it is very
important to become familiar with the basics of array and drive handling.



What is an Array?

Arrays are devices that combine multiple physical disks into a single logical volume. RAID,
or Redundant Array of Inexpensive (or Independent) Disks, is a method of combining
multiple disks for data redundancy in case of a disk failure. This section describes each of
the different types of arrays supported by your Iomega StorCenter Pro Server.

CAUTION! Some RAID configurations add a level of redundancy for your data; however,
RAID should not be your only means of backup.



| top of page |



What is a Spanned Volume?

JBOD, also known as spanning, is similar to RAID 0 in the sense that multiple hard drives are
combined to make one large volume. Data is not written in parallel to multiple disks. Data is
written to a single disk until it is full and then written to the next disk in the set. Spanning
does not provide any data redundancy. Spanning requires two or more hard drives.



| top of page |



What is RAID 0?
RAID 0 uses a technique called data striping. Multiple hard drives are combined to make one
large volume. RAID 0 can read and write faster than a simple configuration, since it splits
the data and accesses all disks in parallel. RAID 0 does not provide any data redundancy.
RAID 0 requires two or more hard drives.



| top of page |



What is RAID 0+1?
RAID 0+1 Creates a mirror (RAID 1) out of two Striped (RAID 0) volumes. RAID 0+1 provides
the same benefits as RAID 1, but allows you to use more than two drives (must be an even
number). The RAID capacity is half of the physical drives.



| top of page |



What is RAID 5?
RAID 5 provides the best balance of data redundancy and disk capacity. Like RAID 0, RAID 5
stripes all of the available disks into one large volume; however, the space equivalent to one
hard drive will be used to store parity data. If a hard drive fails, the Iomega StorCenter will
rebuild your files using the parity data. RAID 5 requires at least 3 hard drives.



| top of page |



Changing the Default Array Type

You can reconfigure your StorCenter Pro to use a different array type. The StorCenter Pro
Server can use JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 0+1, or RAID 5 arrays. By default the StorCenter Pro
server is set to RAID 5. It is very easy to change the array type of your device.

  1. Back up your data! Changing the StorCenter Pro array type will erase all information
     stored on your StorCenter Pro server.
  2. Launch Iomega Discovery Tool Pro Software.
  3. Select the StorCenter Pro server you wish to manage.
  4. Click the Manage button.
  5. Log into Device Services.
  6. Click on the Disk Management link in the left-hand column.
  7. Click the Format link next to your array.
  8. Select the new array type.
  9. Click OK.
 10. When prompted if you want to proceed, click OK.

      NOTE: Your StorCenter Pro may take several hours to build the new array. Do NOT
      power down the StorCenter Pro server during the rebuild process. You can use the
      device during the rebuild process; however, performance will be degraded.



| top of page |
Replacing a Hard Drive in the Iomega StorCenter Pro
Your Iomega StorCenter Pro has been configured so that you can lose any single drive and
the system will remain operational. However, your data may be lost if you are not using an
array type that provides redundancy.

To replace a StorCenter Pro hard drive, simply remove the failed drive from the system and
wait for the system to indicate a successful removal. Insert the replacement drive and wait
for the system to rebuild any RAID volumes that were configured on the original drive. It is
very important that the system is NOT shutdown and that no other drives are removed until
this restoration is complete. Failure to follow these steps could result in system failure
and loss of data!

NOTE: For best results, Iomega recommends that you limit data transfers to/from your
StorCenter while the array is rebuilding. Simple, JBOD, and RAID 0 volumes do not provide
data redundancy. Your data will not be restored if you are using these RAID types. RAID 1,
0+1, 10, and 5 provide data redundancy and will restore your data as part of the rebuild
process.

To Replace a Hard Drive:

Follow these instructions to replace any single hard drive in your Iomega StorCenter Pro.

CAUTION! Never replace more than one hard drive at a time.

CAUTION! Always replace hard drives while the Iomega StorCenter Pro is running. Do NOT
power down the Iomega StorCenter Pro during this operation. This operation may take
several hours.

  1. Determine which drive has failed. Check the System Log if you are unsure.

  2. Press the drive sled release latch.




  3. Pull the lever to eject the drive. Ejecting the drive automatically unplugs the power
     and data connectors.
  4. Slide the drive completely out of the bay.




  5. Wait a couple of minutes while the Iomega StorCenter Pro recognizes that the drive
     has been removed.

  6. Slide the replacement drive into the open bay.

      CAUTION! Use Iomega replacement drives only! Failure to do so will void your

What Should I Back Up?

Data files and folders change the most, and therefore should be backed up every day. Make
sure you back up the directories where you save your important data.



| top of page |



How Should I Back Up?
Create data backups on a regular basis depending on how often your data changes. This
can be done using the scheduling feature of the included software. For example, a business
open on weekdays should back up data files at the end of each weekday—if a virus wipes
out data on a Wednesday, you can restore Tuesday’s backup and lose no more than a day’s
work.



| top of page |



Where Should I Keep My Backups?
You should back up the important files from your client computers to the StorCenter Pro.

The StorCenter Pro RAID has a level of redundancy for your data; however, the RAID should
not be your only means of backup. As with any computer hardware or peripheral, it is highly
recommended that you back up your StorCenter Pro device. A backup can be performed
either directly to a backup device, such as a REV Loader, or to another server over a TCP/IP
network.

Iomega recommends you store at least one backup copy of your StorCenter Pro in a safe,
off-site location. If your backup is stored on cartridges that are stacked next to your
StorCenter Pro, a fire or other disaster could destroy both the StorCenter Pro and the
backup.
| top of page |



Backing Up a Client Computer

Iomega recommends that you perform a full system backup once a week. The following
steps will help you create a full system backup and schedule your daily backups.

Using Roxio Retrospect Express

Roxio Retrospect Express is a full-featured backup program. For more information on using
Retrospect Express, read the Retrospect manual or visit the Roxio support website.



PC

      Backing Up Your Computer

      These steps will walk you through configuring a full-system backup in Wizard
      Mode only. For information on using Advanced Mode, please see the Retrospect
      help system.

         1. Install Retrospect on the computer you wish to back up. Retrospect is
            included on the Solutions CD that came with your StorCenter Pro Server.

         2. Launch Retrospect 7.5 from the Roxio Retrospect program group in the
            Start menu.

         3. The Retrospect serial number is pre-entered. Click Next to continue.

         4. Personalize your copy of Retrospect, then click Next.

         5. Register your copy of Retrospect, then click Next.

         6. Click Next.

         7. Check the option for Perform a backup, then click Next.

         8. Click Next.

         9. Select the option for My Computer as your backup type, then click Next.

        10. Select the types of files you wish to back up, then click Next.

Creating a Boot Disc

These steps require your original Windows Installation disc and product key.

  1. Create a backup of your C drive as described above.

  2. Disable Retrospect control of your optical drive. This will cause your
     optical drive to use the system drivers rather than the specialized drivers
     that Retrospect uses to backup to optical devices. This will not affect the
     normal operation of your drive, but will need to be reenabled if you use
     your optical drive as backup.

         1. Click the Devices & Media button on the Retrospect tool bar.

         2. Click the Environment tab.

         3. Right click on your optical drive and select Ignore ID.

      boot from the CD. See the manual that came with your computer for
      more information.
        2. In the Windows installation wizard select the partition to which you would
           like to restore, then hit Enter.

        3. Once the Windows installation has completed, the computer will reboot
           from the hard drive.

        4. When Retrospect launches automatically, cancel out of the Disaster
           Recovery window and exit Retrospect. At this point the computer will
           reboot.

        5. After the reboot, the Windows install screen will display. Allow Windows
           to finish its install and reboot the computer.

        6. After the reboot, a Retrospect Disaster Recovery dialog will display. Click
           OK to reboot the computer.

        7. After the computer has restarted, cancel the Retrospect Restore Wizard,
           then click the Restore icon.

        8. Click the Switch to Advanced Mode link.

        9. Select Restore an entire volume and click OK.

       10. Click the Source button, then click Recreate.

       11. Select Disk, then click OK.

       12. Select All Disks.

            NOTE: You must include the share name as well as the server name in the
            path. The default share name on the StorCenter is NetHDD.

       15. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. This
           process will take several minutes. See the Retrospect help system for
           more information.

       16. When the restoration is complete, click Finish.

       17. Reboot the computer.

            NOTE: Your computer should boot into the restored version of Windows.
            If your computer boots into the Retrospect Disaster Recovery temporary
            Windows install, reboot the computer and make sure the option for
            Continue Retrospect Disaster Recovery is not selected.

       18. Allow the Retrospect Helper Service to update your computer. Your
           computer may be rebooted at the end of this process. It is not
           uncommon for your computer to perform this step more than once.

             compression.

         4. Select the volume or folder you would like to backup, then click OK.

             NOTE: To select a folder rather than a volume, you will need to click the
             Subvolume... button and define the folders you would like to copy.

         5. Select your StorCenter Pro as the destination, then click OK.

         6. Click on the Duplicate button.



      Verifying your Backup

      For best results, Iomega recommends that you always verify that your backup
      sets and scripts are correctly configured. Always check the summary of your
      backup after it has been created. Backup Set summaries can be viewed by
      clicking Configure→Backup Sets. Script summaries can be viewed by clicking
      Automate→Manage Scripts.

      Iomega also recommends that you perform a test restore of your data backup to

Sharing a USB Storage Device
You can increase the capacity of the StorCenter Pro by connecting up to four additional USB
mass storage devices (such as hard drives and flash drives). The StorCenter will only
recognize devices that are formatted FAT, FAT32, or NTFS (NTFS devices recognized as
read-only).

Shared USB drives can be found under the following path:
\\<Your StorCenter Pro>\USBStorage\diskx.

Sharing a USB printer
The StorCenter Pro is capable of sharing a USB printer with other systems on your network.
Printer sharing is automatic and the StorCenter does not require any special configuration;
however, each client computer must be configured to use the printers. The printers will be
shared at the location:

\\<StorCenter Device address>\Printer1

Connecting and disconnecting a printer causes the StorCenter Pro's Samba (SMB file sharing)
service to restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your
computer should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted. If
your connection is not restored, use the Iomega Discovery Too Pro software to reconnect to
the StorCenter.

CAUTION! Do not connect or disconnect printers while the StorCenter Pro is performing a
data transfer. When the connection is severed, the data transfer will be interrupted and data
may be lost.

Why do I receive USB disconnection notices when I perform maintenance on the internal
drives

You will receive USB storage device disconnections when ever you repair or reformat the
internal drives. This is normal for this device. The USBStorage shared folder resides on the
root level of the internal hard drive and contains links to your USB devices. This causes all
external devices to be reported as disconnected when the internal drive is unmounted.

Why are shares disconnected when I modify users or groups?

Modifying users and groups will cause the StorCenter's Samba (SMB file sharing) service to
restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your computer
should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted. If your
connection is not restored, use the Iomega Discovery Tool Pro software to reconnect to the
StorCenter.

CAUTION! Do not create new users and groups while the StorCenter is performing a data
transfer. When the connection is severed, the data transfer will be interrupted and data may
be lost.

Why are shares disconnected when I add or remove a printer?

Connecting and disconnecting a printer causes the StorCenter's Samba (SMB file sharing)
service to restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your
computer should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted. If
your connection is not restored, use the Iomega Discovery Tool Pro software to reconnect to
the StorCenter.
CAUTION! Do not connect or disconnect printers while the StorCenter is performing a data
transfer. When the connection is severed, the data transfer will be interrupted and data may
be lost.
