Repurposing my N40L


Recommended Posts

I want to focus a little more time on FreeNAS and Open Media Vault. I am going to use my N40L for these projects:

HP dual Gb Ethernet and Adaptec SATA cards:


Four 2TB 2.5" Toshiba's in a 5.25" bay:



Plus four 3.5" 2TB drives in the swappable bays.


I will post more as I test.

Have you thought about XPEnology? In my opinion it is much easier to use than FreeNAS.

I own a Synology box so I am fairly well versed on the OS. 

This is a bit of an experiment to look at alternatives to WHS 2011.

very nice find... do you have rails on the sides or is it just slipped in? I either lost the ones that came with the unit, or never had any to begin with.
