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.
The following are changes since RAIDiator 4.2.20.
New features and enhancements
1. Updated CIFS service to address recent security issues.
2. Updated iSCSI service for better ESXi5 compatibility.
3. Updated AFP service to address Time Machine compatibility.
1. If using both rear USB ports, backup jobs were using the Right port only.
2. Fix to iSNS (iSCSI) service to prevent possible service crash.
3. Backup Config will not backup iSCSI config, prevents restore error. Backup Jobs can be confused for iSCSI backups.
4. When performing a Remote Update, and already had the latest version, there was no message describing the already up to date situation.
5. Update IP validation checks to allow valid IPs such as 10.0.10.0 that were previously blocked.
6. Resolve issue where FrontView could take a long time to initially load if there was no Internet connection available.
- Once you upgrade to this release, you cannot downgrade back to 4.2.15 or prior releases due to the automatic change in the partition format to support 3TB+ hard disks.
- 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.
