NSA325 v2 Won't run on v4.81 Firmware - OK on v4.80
After more than 2 years running on v4.81 firmware, one morning the NAS was constanly rebooting and was only up for a few seconds, so there was no way to copy files off or get in via the web interface. I finally recovered the NAS by using Mijzelf's rescue USB stick (v4.80) [Many thanks for making that available!] and was able to use the web interface to repair the RAID and then copy files off. The NAS was running perfectly so I decided to finally upgrade back to v4.81.
Guess what? Reboot loop back, or occasionally all lamps lit with top lamp blinking continuously. Pressing [power] gives a beep but nothing else, and holding it down eventually turns the NAS off. So basically the NAS won't run under v4.81 any more! I re-downloaded v4.81 firmware from ZyZEL just to be sure it wasn't corrupted, but for now I am back to v4.80 again and all is well. RAID remained healthy. I can't understand what could have changed to cause this problem. Any ideas?
