NSM5200 External Storage via Fiber Module

Hi All,

Just a bit of information for whoever is interested or is having problems with using a Pelco NSM5200 and a third party external storage using the Pelco Fiber Module option.

We have recently found that the maximum partition size for the NSM5200 is 16TB due to the Kernel being 32-bit. When trying to add external volumes via the webpage the volume will appear in the list but cannot be mounted if it is larger than 16TB.

Our solution was to SSH into the NSM5200 and create several smaller partitions (<16TB) so that they can be attached properly via the webpage.

Below is an example of partitioning an external volume into 4TB partitions:

parted /dev/sde


mklabel gpt

unit TB

mkpart primary 0.00TB 4.00TB

mkpart extended 4.00TB 8.00TB

mkpart extended 8.00TB 12.00TB

mkpart extended 12.00TB 16.00TB

mkpart extended 16.00TB 20.00TB



mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sde1

mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sde2

mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sde3

mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sde4

mkfs.xfs -f /dev/sde5

I hope this helps out anyone who is having similar issues
