Iam running out of space, the time has come to buy new storage this time not only a HDD with some capacity.
I have some new stuff @home like an new LED-TV(Samsung UE37D6510) with AllShare-DLNA, the new idea was to access all my Data from my TV.
I compared a lot of NAS-Devices and I found Silver Stone DC01, that was exactly that what I needed…
– Linux powered- YEAH!
– full root privileges – Be root;)
– Dual-Core ARM-Processor with 750 MHz
– 256 MB – DDR2 RAM
– FTP Service
– SAMBA Service
– NFS Service (Linux)
– Bonjour Service (Mac)
– Web Service (WebDAV supported)
– iTunes server
– DLNA server
– Printer server
– USB mass storage class
– VPN client
– Auto Register to VPN/Proxy Server with MAC Address
– IPv6 ready
The root account can be brute-foreced (I may not publish the actual password)
BTW. you can make a backup of your running config, in the zip-archive you will find the shadow file. Run john the ripper to find out the password.
The only one what Iam missing, is rsync.

Ivan found a solution(see Comments) to bring the MAC OS X Time machine backup program to work with Silver Stone DC01 NAS:
The DC01 is able to support the MAX OS X Time Machine Backup program, but only after some tiny fixes which can be found here: http://wiki.myakitio.com/time_machine

On request from comments I spend some time and I was able to find some older firmware for DC01 thanks to bad security settings of silverstonetek servers, epicfail but I don’t say it; you read it =)
Now here it is:

Hey, I recorded a short video of the booting process of a Silverstone DC01, hope this will help you.
Thanks, I’ll give it a few more tries. I think it may be bricked, after reading the doc the LED is supposed to be blinking during bootup then become solid once ready, but on mine it stays solid blue as soon as I plug it. I really can’t remember how it was before as I haven’t used it for a number of years. Too bad, it’s a really slick looking NAS and is very silent too.

Hi Chien, and thank your for visiting this post about DC01.
I see two ways to get your DC01 reachable via network:
1. connect it to your network and try to look on your router, which is DHCP-server for the DHCP requests from your DC01 device.
2. connect you DC01 directly over a network cable to your PC/laptop and start Wireshark tool on the interface. Now power on DC01 and you will see network requests from DC01 and its ip-address if it has one. Otherwise you will see DHCP requests.
Hello, I dusted off and old DC-01 that I retired years ago. Somehow it was always a bit flaky, meaning it would sometimes drop out of the network and I even RMA it to Silverstone within the first year; when I got it back there was no note of what was performed to fix it and they even lost 3 cover screws out of 4…
Anyways, right now it’s not detected on my network (the network jack lights are on). I took off the HDD and am trying to boot “naked”. I don’t remember what IP/settings I assigned last so I’m trying to perform a factory reset so it reverts to default DHCP. Anyone knows how to do this? I tried holding the reset button for 15-20 seconds and it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Is there any trick to run a diag or access log if I can’t detect it on my network?
I’ve had the same experience trying to update DC01 firmware to Akitio’s and would highly appreciate receiving a working akitio firmware for manual installation. Thanks in advance for your help.
I’ve successfully replaced the MAC address with the one from the mycloud wiki :-)
But the crap DC01 is still not updating to akitio firmware. Any further hints? Or can anyone
send me a working akitio firmware to manually install?
