Answer

This article covers LED indicator information for Series 3 devices. Click here for information on older devices.

This article explains the standard LED indicators on the front and rear panels of Datto devices. Your device may have a different form factor than those depicted, depending on its size and number of array drives.

ALTO 3

The Datto ALTO 3 uses two LED indicator lights on the front panel:

  • The power indicator is green when the device is powered up and active, and red when the device is off. 
  • The hard drive activity indicator flashes blue when the device accesses the HDD.

Front panel

  • The power indicator LED surrounds the square power button, and glows blue when powered on. 
  • The drive activity LEDs glow blue during normal use. When a disk is accessed, the corresponding drive indicator will turn amber and blink rapidly. 
  • The rectangular LED beneath the power button does not convey any information at this time.

The remaining status LEDs indicate, from top to bottom:

  • hard drive activity (this will blink to indicate disk activity)
  • generic device errors (This will illuminate for hardware or system log-related errors)
  • activity on LAN 1
  • activity on LAN 2 (if configured)
