How to reset forgotten password
« on: June 22, 2010, 07:36:45 PM »

I forgot my DNS-323 admin password
I wonder if there is a way to reset it?

There is a button on the back of the DNS that will restore your unit to factory config.  You will not lose you data, however you will need to reconfigure the device from scratch.

Doesn't reconfiguring the device also require a rebuild of the RAID arrays..which would delete the information already present?

No.

RAID1 is for disk redundancy - NOT data backup - don't confuse the two.

A factory reset doesn't affect the data, I've done it a number of times on both the DNS-321 and the DNS-323.
