1) Check if the network settings of the NAS server are correct and make sure that the IP of the NAS server does not conflict with those of other servers on the LAN.
2) Make sure the Windows client has correctly installed/set up TCP/IP.
3) Make sure the NAS server and the client computer that runs Microsoft IE can be connected through physical network medium (e.g. hub, switch, etc.) and in the same subnet.
4) Make sure that the browser is IE 5.0 or above and it can connect to other servers in the network.
5) Try typing the server name of the NAS server in the address field of IE.
6) Try typing the IP address of the NAS server in the address field of IE.
7) Try restoring the IE settings to defaults and try again.
8) Try restarting the server.
When a user is configuring the "NFS Privilege" settings, please make sure the particular machine has created the Netgroup on the NIS Domain. By doing this, the user will be able to see the "Netgroup" column on the "NFS Privilege" settings page. If the user does not see the "Netgroup" column, it is because the column is not required and "hidden" to avoid user confusion.
Whenever the system has recorded a system failure, an e-mail notification will immediately be sent to the system administrator for emergency repair and backup/restore.
The system will allow up to 512 concurrent connections as maximum value. However, to have the best performance, the proper value depends on the Hardware and Network environment.
If system administrator forgets his/her ID and Password, re-installation and picking a new ID and Password is the only way to access the NAS again. For security issue, the Network Filer Plus does not allow the administrator to restore his/her ID and Password.
Under normal circumstances, the system will trigger an alert message email to all users when the system is going to close. However, if the administrator did the shut down manually, the system will be offline in just a few seconds and all user connections will be terminated.
Theoretically there is no size limitation on the Network Filer Plus . However, most existing File Systems have there own limits for a single volume. (For example, the WINDOWS File System has a maximum of 1 TB that can be stored in a single volume.) As long as the user creates the volume in compliance with size allowances of the chosen File System, the Network Filer Plus will be able to support it.
If the user wants to change System Administrator's Password, please log on as Administrator and go to ->"Security Setup" -> "Account Setup" and change the Root password. Simply click "apply" to activate the new password.
With ACL support enabled, the Network Filer Plus can help increase security as it operates by allowing selective use of services. An Access Control List is the usual means by which access to, and denial of , services is controlled. It is simply a list of services available and the associated hosts permitted to use the service. As such, the System Administrator can control all available services and assigned the access rights to meet user requirements.
The possible reasons include:

The account was originally a Windows PDC account. Please make sure the system administrator did not setup a password when adding it to the local accounts.

If the client platform is using a language different from the one used on the Storage Manager, the client might be reading random codes when using the system. The system administrator has to re-set the languages on the Storage Manager so that they are readable by the client.

The user may not be able to launch the Storage Manager via the Network Filer Plus Assistant if he has installed a browser other than IE (e.g. Netscape) and uninstalled it. We suggest that you use a computer that has not had a browser installed and then uninstalled.
The only known restriction is on Windows XP. When users copy files to a single directory on Windows XP, the transmission speed will become extremely slow or even stop completely if the number of files exceed 16,000.
The Network Filer Plus is able to support all Single Byte and Double Byte languages. Through a little bit of customization, the Network Filer Plus would be able to support all languages available.
Not necessary. A Network Filer Plus only requires a console with basic input and output to perform all setup and administration. All the system related configuration and setting could be done remotely, no extra terminal or human resources are needed.
When using version 4.05 of the Netscape Navigator on an Apple Macintosh computer, some spaces appear as square boxes on the Security share access page. (This has no effect on functionality) NAS recommends that you upgrade your Web browser to either Netscape Communicator (Version 4.0 or higher) or Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 or higher).
If your web browser is one of the older ones (below version 4.0), the browser may fail to refresh Network Filer Plus Web configuration pages. NAS recommends that you upgrade your Web browser to either Netscape Communicator (Version 4.0 or higher) or Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 or higher).
NAS recommends that you upgrade your Web browser to either Netscape Communicator (Version 4.0 or higher) or Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 or higher).
The version information is located on the Network Filer Plus login page. System Administrators will be able to use this information to determine if updates need to be installed.
There are several point to be addressed when a user is creating a group:Group names are not case sensitive and can contain letters, numbers, dots, underscores and the minus sign. Other than that, all particular signs and spaces are not allowed to be part of the group name. The length cannot exceed 15 letters and the first character must be a letter, number, dot or underscore.
