I'm trying to get c drive access on my nv+ v2 nas, and consistently get "System Error 5 // Access Denied" when using the net use command in a win 7 console. Same result using the graphical version.
My need is to re-arrange some folders buried deep inside a share, which was created during a backup from external USB. I love that feature, but being an "all or nothing" backup does suck. Per prior posts, I should be able to map the NAS c drive, and move files at will without having to pass back and forth over the network.
Fro starters, I can browse shares, including the user share, map network drives, use the net use for a share(user) called thyde and gain access.
Stats: ReadyNAS NV+ V2 with current version of Dashboard (note Frontview is no longer available for this unit, so please don't post the usual "security mode" links!)
Win 7 Ult, 32 bit, admin access, firewall taken down, no other security software active
Have removed both by explorer view and net use command, all network shares/mapped drives, etc.
NAS and computer are hardwired to my LAN, both on the "workgroup" workgroup. All machines show up in network view. My Sony media center sees the NAS just fine.
Have added and removed a user, matching my computer name in the Dashboard user accounts page
command format in a win 7 console: "net use \\readynas.ip.address\c /user:admin" and am asked for password, entering variety of passwords, including the old "password/netgear1/infrant1" and of course the actual password I use for Dashboard.
I have changed the Dashboard password to 4 characters, 6 characters, 8 characters, with and without upperCaSe and NumB3rs.... have cold rebooted in between steps. I can of course, log into Dashboard.
I know that the path is available, for I can "net use \\readynas.ip.address\thyde /user:thyde" works just fine (but it's not at the root level, so doesn't gain me anything)
I can "net use \\readynas.ip.address\admin /user:admin" and that, as expected, fails with a "path not found" error. The user "root" also does not exist. So at least I know the NAS is looking up credentials.
Other posts have indicated that the x86 versions of the NV+ (the v2, in particular) no longer offer "share" access, and are "user" access by default. So once again, please don't post a link to the "Frontview simulator".....
Is there another buried password for the "Admin" user in the V2?
