WebGUI usage steps

to allow web access:

# /root/Linuxhttp_V2.5.1_180529/x86_64/archttp64
ArchHTTP for setup: http://hostname:81/
or directly the controller: http://hostname:82/

User 'admin', password '0000'

to check the physical drives status, switch on LED on drive, etc.

Areca CLI usage

# cd /root/linuxcli_V1.15.8_180529/x86_64/ 
# ./cli64 set password=0000
to collect configuration status file Controller.txt issue command
# ./cli64 set savecfg path=/root/areca

Hardware Monitoring:

#./cli64 hw info

to CLI usage

# ./cli64
And follow help, for instance,
 CLI > disk info
...
 34  03  Device 09 SEAGATE ST12000NM0027           12000.1GB  Raid Set # 000 
 35  03  Device 10 SEAGATE ST12000NM0027           12000.1GB  Raid Set # 000   <<
 36  03  Device 11 SEAGATE ST12000NM0027           12000.1GB  Free    
...
And example of command that set HDD (36 03 Device 11 - visible from previous "side info" command) as Hot-Spare:
CLI > rsf createhs drv=36

Just load them one by one, order doesn't mutter:
# ./cli64 set curctrl=1
# ./cli64 set password=0000
# ./cli64 sys updatefw path=/root/ARC-1883/ARC1883BIOS.BIN
# ./cli64 sys updatefw path=/root/ARC-1883/ARC1883BOOT.BIN
# ./cli64 sys updatefw path=/root/ARC-1883/ARC1883FIRM.BIN
