I recommended this unit to my boss to replace our full and aged IBM xSeries data server. I received the unit in a timely fashion and promptly racked it(The included rail kit worked excellently and was a snap to install). After which I went about doing the basic setup of the unit, IP, RAID, etc. Then I started working on integrating it into our network, by enabling the ADS support. That is where it all started to break down. The ADS support appears to be at a state worse then the upsteam provider project(Samba.org), it only syncs once with the Domain Controller. From that point it appears you have to manually sync the users. Add to that the fact that the permissions don't seem to actually work and you have a product with a completely broken feature. Before purchasing I read the entire manual entry on the ADS support and none of these issues where noted. I wasn't expecting perfect integration given the unit was not running a version of MS Windows, but these limitation should have been noted. They have a unit comping out around June 2012, the W8900, which runs MS WSS 2008 R2 Standard. That would eliminate most of the flaws with this unit. Until then check out Buffalo Technology TeraStation Pro Rackmount WSS Storage Server 8 TB (4 x 2 TB) Windows Storage Server WS-RV8.0TL/R5 (black)
