    All of a sudden my NSLU2 decided that all my folders were "read-only" and that they were staying that way -- on both attached (previously fully functional) drives.
    It will let me log into the Administration using admin/admin -- but ONLY when the drives are disconnected. When the drives are connected, it insists on a "Management" User name and Password AFTER accepting the Administration logon.
    Any idea what a Management password is and where to get one?
    Upgrading firmware to v2.3R63 and resetting to the "Default Configuration" went smoothly, but did not help.

    That request for a "Management" ID and password is a new one to me.

    If I recall correctly, the NSLU2 makes the attached HDs "read-only" when it decides that a scan disk on them is needed. There may be no disk errors to fix, but I think this requirement for a scan disk is based on the amount of HD use or number of accesses since the last scan disk.

    When the HDs become read-only, I didn't think that the NSLU2 required a special ID/PW to access the administration functions though.

    I am also encountering the exact same problem and would like to know if there is a solution.

    I found that if I logged in with username "admin" and password "admin" it let me right in. If, on the otherhand, I entered a username like "Administrator" or no username, then it asked me for the management password.

    The solution seems to be to login as admin/admin and forget about the management id.
