I have received the dockstation -- Xystec Klon-Festplatten-Dock "DSU-3525.Copy" für 2,5 & 3,5" SATA-HDDs --.
a) With CoreLinux 4.3, when I connect it (with a 500GB HDD in it) to an eSATA connector of a PCI card, nothing is recognized with mntool (no new message is seen in dmesg).
b) When I connect the same dockstation with HDD in it, to an USB connector to my PC, dmesg show:
[ 11.338763] usbcore: registered new interface driver oss_usb

which is better than a). When I click on "Refresh" of the mntool, I see the dockstation try to be contacted, but dont appear as new sdx in mntool. I think few modules are missing for recognizing the dockstation.
So, can somebody help and inform how to make it recognized with corelinux?
I will further search but any quick advise is welcome.
My first target is
a) use that dockstation and connect the HDD 500GB to my PC with eSATA
b) format the HDD with ext4
c) put all data on it
d) create 1x per month a backup with that dockstation
