My post about my Apple LCIII NAS has been updated with photos and hard disk changes. Links to the photo gallery have also been corrected.
Hard disk has failed in my NAS. Im not happy, luckily i’ve not lost any data as its all backed up!
I don’t have any spare IDE disks to put in it, apart from a 20Gb drive, which isnt enough. But I do have 2 SATA drives spare. Unfortunately, the system board in the NAS does not have a SATA port. I do have a IDE/SATA adapter but its too big to put in the NAS case.
Will need to source a disk…
Ive done another conversion! Ive taken my old (and slightly iffy) Apple Mac LCIII and made it into a NAS!
Photos can be found here.
It now has a 400Gb hard disk (It did have a 250Gb drive until it died…). The software running on the system is FreeNAS. It serves files via SMB for my Windows clients and NFS for my unix boxes. It can also stream media files via uPNP and iTunes etc.
