MaxAttach NAS 4100 and NAS 4300 Storage Appliances contain four hard drives:

Primary Master (PM) - Disk 0
Primary Slave (PS) - Disk 1
Secondary Master (SM) - Disk 2
Secondary Slave (SS) - Disk 3

Hard disk drive failures can be hard to identify. If one drive fails (regardless of which one - PM, PS, SM or SS), Disk ManageMent will show the last one "Disk 3" is the "Missing Disk." This is due to the BIOS configuration. Do not use this disk number to match the disk numbers on the chassis label -- failure to replace the actual, failed hard disk drive can result in complete data loss. IDENTIFYDISK software can assist you with identifying which hard disk drive has failed in your NAS 4100/NAS 4300.

After downloading IDENTIFYDISK.EXE, copy it to the NAS 4100/NAS 4300 and execute the file fRom a Command PRompt. The following is an example of what may be seen:

Primary Master detected
Primary Slave not detected
Secondary Master detected
Secondary Slave detected

In this example, the Secondary Master (Disk 2) is the defective hard disk drive.

Please follow these steps for proper Installation:

Download and extract ps3000ls_98se_drivers.exe to the computer to which you connect the 3000LS to. Maxtor suggests that you extract the file to the C:\> drive.

On the third screen, select the option to find the directory containing the 98SE Drivers (e.g., C:\3000LS_98SE_Drivers) for a driver and click Next.
The Hardware Wizard should find a driver directory called TPPFX.INF. Click Next to install this driver.
After a moMent, the Hardware Wizard should tell you Windows has finished installing the software. Click Finish.
