LED behavior

 

General LED behavior

The list of colors below will help you identify the general status of your NAS.

 

Color State
Solid blue Ready
Blinking blue Startup; shutdown; activity
Alternating red and blue

RAID synchronization; software update

Note: Do not remove disks or cut power to the NAS unless it has been powered off.

Solid red Error


 

Front and disk LEDs

The status and disk LEDs indicate the NAS’s: status, drive health, and activity. This section describes the behavior of the LED indicators.

 

Status LED Color Disk LED Color State
- Activity LED for working
disks (until they are fully
initialized)
Blinking occurs as the device is
booting; will cease once the
drives are fully initialized
Solid blue Activity LED for working
disks
Device is functioning
properly and the drives are
working (read/write)
Blinking blue/red Blinking blue/red RAID synchronizing; will
cease once operation has
concluded
Blinking red Solid red for non-functional disks RAID is degraded; data is
intact but the array is no
longer protected should
another disk fail
Solid red Activity LED for working
disks
Temperature alert (critical
level) – the product will
shut off
- Activity LED for working
disks
Operating system update in
progress
Activity LED for all disks Temperature alert
Solid red for non-functional disks RAID has failed and data
has been lost
- Disks are disconnected
Fan is not spinning
The NAS is receiving its power via a connected UPS; or, the power supply has been cut and the UPS has run out of
reserve power – the product will shut off
