Hello List,since a couple of days I have an issue with the spin-down function of my HDD installed in a NAS-2000. When I set up the NAS-2000 several month ago, I activated the HDD spin-down function via the web front-end with a delay time of 15 minutes and everything worked perfectly fine.
Last weekend I encountered a mains power failure at my place which also affected the NAS-2000 which shut down uncontrolled. The device came up without any obvious errors afterwards except for the fact that the spin-down function doesn't work any more --> The HDD is constantly on.
In the meanwhile I tried several things, but all to no avail:- I operated the NAS-2000 with the network cable disconnected to make sure no nasty computer keeps the drive busy by accessing data.
- I manually set the spin-down time of the HDD with 'hdparm' by logging in via SSH and executing 'hdparm -k1 -K1 -S120 /dev/hda'. The command was executed properly and I got the reply below, but the problem remained.
/dev/hda: setting keep_settings to 1 (on) setting drive keep features to 1 (on) setting standby to 120 (10 minutes) keepsettings = 1 (on)- I changed the delay time via the web front-end in case it is only activated after a change of the value.
Any idea on how I can re-activate the spin-down function is welcome! Thanks in advance, CB This is my hardware setup: ========================== NAS-2000, Hardware Rev.
