Buffalo Terrastation

Hi Has anyone had an experience of using a buffalo terrastation, I was considering purchasing one to back up our 2k3 domain controllers.

I read that they are powered by a linux operating system and was wondering if anyone knew how much functionality it has, for example would i be able to create a bash script to back up my network shares?

I've never used it. When I was considering it awhile back, the main problem was that out of the box it only supports SAMBA, not NFS and the only administrative access seemed to be via a Web based GUI (i.e. no access to the internals). But looking around some more, I found this page which describes how to modify the firmware to add additional features. FWIW I eventually went with the Linksys NSLU2 with the uNSLUng firmware and a 300 GB USB hard drive. It's served me well so far. Note that playing around with the hardware beyond anything described in the user manual or adding a custom firmware to any device like this will almost certainly void your warranty.
