ix2-200 has gone AWOL

2020-03-09, 12:17 PM

My ix2-200 (originally Iomega) has suddenly gone off-line. It has been working reliably for 10 years or so, but now will not respond to pings, nor register in my arp table (shows as "incomplete"). Is there a way to boot from a thumb drive so I can see what's going on? I'm a Linux admin (though Fedora rather than Debian used on this unit).

Hi pocal,


Normally, if the system was still working, I would've suggested for you to enable the support services via support.html (or diagnostics.html depending on the system) hidden page to access your NAS via SSH afterwards.


Now, I'm far from being at expert at this but if you have a USB to TTL (3.3v) adapter, I believe you could monitor it's booting progress via a JTAG that's on the board, if I recall correctly (I had an IX2-200 a few years ago).Iomega used Marvell U-boot systems to start up and with that, you would be able to see what's happening when the device boots up.
