Configuring a TeraStation Pro for Active Directory:

  1. A computer account with the name of the Terastation needs to be created on the domain. It needs to be configured so that a pre-2000 machine can use this account. Also, the Domain Controller needs "NetBIOS over TCP/IP" set to "enabled".
  2. In "IP Address Properties" under "Network", the DNS server address needs to be set to the Domain Controller's address.
  3. The clock on the TeraStation needs to be set to the same timezone as the Domain Controller and the times need to be with in 5 minutes of each other.
  4. The "Workgroup/Domain" page under "Network" needs to be set to the following settings - If ever a field is too short to enter the full information (particularly the Domain Name and the Domain Controller fields) they need to be filled in as much as possible.


Workgroup and Domain Properties:

  • Network Type: "Domain"
  • Workgroup Name: N/A (greyed out)
  • Domain Name: Name of the user's Domain
  • Domain Controller Name: Name of the server that controls the Domain
  • WINS Server IP Address: The IP of whatever is running the WINS server (If not running WINS, use the IP of the Domain Controller)
  • Active Directory: "Domain"
  • AD Full Domain: The full name of the Domain, typically "domainname.local"
  • AD Full Domain Controller: The Domain Controller "dot" the full domain from the previous line so "domaincontroller.domainname.local"
  • AD Administrator Name & AD Administrator Password: The user name and password of an account with administration privileges so the Tera can properly be added to the network. This information will not be stored.
