Firmware upgrade for old Iomega StorCenter ix2-200

Hi,

New to this forum and finding new firmware for my Iomega NAS:
Iomega StorCenter Device
Iomega StorCenter ix2-200
2.1.42.18967  <<< old version!

I am looking for confirmation for upgrading the current version (2.1.42.18967) to the latest version:

  • My ix2 is running a version lower than 3.3.2.29823, so I need to upgrade using ix2-ng-3.3.2.29823.tgz before updating to 4.0.8.23976?
  • Then download and install the latest version 4.0.8.23976?

Right?

On my laptop I am running Iomega StorCenter software to manage and access my NAS. Should I download and install LenovoEMC Storage Manager for Windows, to replace StorCenter?

All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi Borredoes,

 

You will not be able to upgrade to the 3.x and 4.x firmware as they are for Cloud Edition and newer model devices. The 2.1.42.18967 firmware is the latest version for your device.

Hi Thierry,

 

It is the same for the ix2-200 Cloud Edition since that product is end-of-life. That is the latest firmware version for your device. Firmware 4.0.8 is for the newer models of NAS devies.

Re: Firmware upgrade for old Iomega StorCenter ix2-200

Hi Andrew, I hope you can help me as I have a similar problem.

I've got the same device, but running v 2.1.38.22294 but I am failing to upgrade to  v2.1.42.18967.

I get this message once the file is copied over to the device: 

  Actualizar software del dispositivo

No se pudo aplicar el archivo de actualización.

Una actualización a la versión 2.1.42.18967 del software del dispositivo Iomega StorCenter ahora está disponible.

Versión actual de software de dispositivo: 2.1.38.22294

 

It says the upgrade file could not be applied and there is version 2.1.42.18967 available for installation, which is precisely what I am trying to do. I would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

Hi preibak,

 

Make sure you are downloading the correct file: StorCenter ix2-200 Firmware Version 2.1.42.18967

 

Save the file locally to your desktop first and then try uploading it to the ix2-200.

 

Are you using Storage Manager or the web interface to upgrade the firmware? You may need to try using a different web browser or make sure that your web browser is up to date. You may need to clear your browser's cache as well.

Suggest you try a direct download from https://lenovo-na-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26789 and follow instructions from there....

 This is no secret place, just follow the support section (storage) down to Iomega (more drives) ix2-200 cloud  ;-)
