Replacing the disk in a single-drive QNAP NAS

Представьте - у вас есть однодисковый NAS QNAP. Временно забудем, что у большинства и однодискового NAS нет, а количество владельцев однодисковых NAS QNAP вообще не велико, но! Даже этому меньшинству будет полезно узнать, как можно заменить старый диск на новый, например, если емкости старого диска не хватает, а менять NAS на новый желания/возможности нет.

Ниже предлагаю не мою статью (я даже переводить ее не стал), там все просто и понятно, но сколько уже раз бывало, что даже поместив в закладки, через какое-то время видишь, что сам блог уже исчез и закладка полезна только для того, чтобы попытаться найти кеш страницы в сети.

While the bigger QNAPs with multiple drives allow replacing the internal drives with bigger and newer disks quite easily due to a process called ‘Online RAID Capacity Extension’, it is slightly more difficult with a one-bay NAS – but possible. These are the necessary steps:

  1. Fit your new (and bigger) disk into an external hard drive enclosure with USB or eSATA and connect it to your QNAP.
  2. Go to the QNAP Webinterface, select the Control Panel und move into the External Devices section. Allow it to use the new (external) drive as a Q-RAID 1 mirror of the internal drive. You will have to wait quite a while for this process to complete – mirroring approx. 1TB of data took my TS-110 more than a day.
  3. Once that process is finished, backup your settings from the device (not manually, there is an option to download them).
  4. Power the QNAP down.
  5. Disassemble the QNAP and take out the ‘old’ drive.
  6. Power up the device (yes, without connected drive!), wait a couple of minutes.
  7. Either use QNAP Finder to find your NAS’ IP address or look into your DHCP server’s lease list and point your browser to http://<IP>:8080
  8. If everything went well, you should now see your NAS complain about a missing hard drive. Solve the ‘problem’ by hot-plugging the new drive.
  9. The website should automatically update and tell you that a hard drive with QNAP signature was detected. Select to “Restore Factory Settings” and “Start” the firmware download.
  10. After ca. 10 minutes the NAS will beep 3x (long). A couple of minutes later again 1x (short). Another few minutes later there will be another short beep. About 10 minutes later the NAS will beep (long) again. Time to steer your browser to the web interface again.
  11. Login with admin/admin, open the Control Panel, goto System Settings > Backup/Restore and restore the system settings with the backup bundle you created before. When it asks you to do so, confirm that the NAS shall restart.
  12. Connect to the web interface again (which might now have a different IP, the old one) and check if everything is the way as with the old drive. If it is, sending me some special beer from your region.
