This method requires direct access to the Platform server desktop, via either Remote desktop or local login.

  1. Locate and open the "ArcSAP" program via the Start menu in the bottom left corner of the desktop.


2. Launch ArcSAP and expand the menu on the left until you can select "ARC-1883ix" as shown in the image below.arcsap_select

3. Click the "Advanced Features" option in the bottom center of the ArcSAP window.

4.  You will be asked for a login and password. Enter the following – Login: admin / PW: 0000 (four zeros)

5. This will take you into the Areca Advanced configuration GUI. From here you can view RAID status, and manage and monitor drive replacement.
