Currently my ReadyNas 1100 is connected to our network and using domain security mode. I'm worried that if our network\domain controller is down that I won't be able to access the data. I use it for backup so it's important that I can access it. I'm the only one that uses the readynas so it doesn't really need to be on the network. I could just connect it to the PC which does the backup and transfers the data.
How can I be sure that I can access the data on the readynas when the domain\network is down. Can I setup the 2nd ethernet port connected directly to my PC? Should I just take it off the network and connect it only, directly to this PC?
