Re: Replacing disk in B2?

The Excito "B2" model (current Linux versions) will only support up to 2 TB drives. I installed a new Western Digital 2TB RED (NAS) hard drive, part number: WD20EFRX then installed (and updated) the Bubba 2 image. Appears to be working fine, now with 4 times the storage ! I noticed that the WD hard ...

Re: New Hard Drive for Bubba 2 (B2)

I installed a new Western Digital 2TB RED (NAS) hard drive, part number: WD20EFRX
then installed (and updated) the Bubba 2 image.

Appears to be working fine, now with 4 times the storage !
I noticed that the WD hard drive is quieter and cooler (40-42 degrees C) in operation.

New Hard Drive for Bubba 2 (B2)

I have reached the capacity of my reliable B2, SO it is time to upgrade the Hard Drive. 2, 3 and 4 TB hard drives are readily available from Western Digital (now color coded). What is the best choice for: "Color type" (Green, Red, Black) and Size (2, 3 or 4 TB) given the B2 hardware configuration? g...

Re: Release notes for BUBBA|2 version 2.0.2

I never was able to get this upgrade / update to work properly with my B2 (< 2.0 firmware). It would hang at 40%, I will have to check to see IF I still have the log file -- if this would be helpful. I ended up waiting for a time -- when I could perform this upgrade -- the old fashioned way. Backup ...

Re: B1/2 -> B3 upgrade discount

I would very much like to see this B3 discount apply for my original Bubba Server.
I am considering retiring this server (PATA drives, etc.) for a B3.

tor - Thanks for the Bubba|Two firmware upgrade. Working as advertised, new version (1.1.2) has been up for 2 days now. Bubba seems to be more consistent in response time from network (LAN or WAN).

I have set-up my Bubba and Bubba|Two from "no disk" situations, so I will offer some suggestions. 1. Before installing the hard drive into your Bubba enclosure, assure that you have a good drive. I do this by installing in a PC running MS Windows and using the manufacturer's software. In your situat...

Bubba Storage

It is really unfortunate that the Bubba|Storage enclosure for an external SATA disk ... did NOT include a USB connection option. I would have considered it for usage with my uNSLUng (Linksys NSLU2) as its external hard drive!! The USB connection also provides a bit of flexibility for connection to c...
