The simplest way to update is to use the System/Update/Remote tab in Frontview. If you prefer, you can choose to do a local update by first downloading the new image here: RAIDiator-x86-4.2.17. We recommend that you update your ReadyNAS to this latest RAIDiator release to ensure your ReadyNAS is running with all the latest bug fixes and enhancements.
WARNING: If you update to 4.2.17, you will NOT be able to go back to 4.2.15 or earlier due to the automatic change in the partition format to support 3TB+ hard disks.
The following are changes since RAIDiator 4.2.16.
New features and enhancements
1. Provide download links for exported user and group lists instead of asking for an email address.
2. Raised iSCSI intiator limit to 256.
3. Updated ReadyNAS Remote to the latest version.
1. Add monitoring support for the Ultra 2, Ultra 2 Plus, and Pro 2 CPU temperature. Speed up the fan quickly if the CPU temp rises out of conservative safe zone. This fixes a problem with the specified systems potentially freezing in higher temperature environments.
2. Fixed bug in log truncation that caused AFP service to quit.
- Once you upgrade to this release, you cannot downgrade back to 4.2.15 or prior releases.
- IE 6 no longer supported. Please update to IE 7 or 8.
- Volume expansion will not work beyond 16 TB. To support 16 TB or greater, you’ll have to factory default with that capacity in place.
- Snapshot resizing is disabled in the release. We will re-enable this feature in a future update.
- If you have previously configured an SNMP monitored UPS and attach a local USB UPS, the USB UPS will be monitored by the ReadyNAS. To switch back to SNMP monitoring, disconnect the USB UPS and then re-enter the IP address of the SNMP monitored UPS device.
- ReadyNAS 3200 and 4200 are limited to 2TB on channels 5-12. Channels 1-4 supports 3TB+ drives with RAIDiator 4.2.16+.
