Questions about using NAS on Mac OS.

AFP (netatalk) - CNID data still stored in MYSHARE/.AppleDB

Hello,

When a shared folder is accessed via AFP, a .AppleDB folder is created at the root of the share to store the CNID database. However, from versions 3.x of netatalk, and with actual configuration, I think it should not.

- Netatalk is in version 3.0.5 (QNAP firmware up-to-date 4.1.0) (current netatalk version : 3.1.6)
- CNID backend is DBD
- dbpath for all shared folders are : /var/netatalk/CNID//.@cnid/SHAREDFOLDERNAME (default location)

What do you think ...

QNAP disconnect

There are various posts about Error 36 which I am getting but they all seem to think it is a drive issue.

I know that my Mac is disconnecting from the QNAP folder (it gives me a message saying so - "Server connection interrupted") and then or course gives me error 36 because it cannot write.

There are no other issues. Drives are definitely fine.

I have tried Samba and AFP connections but same problem ...

AFP Not Working After TS-419 -> TS-451 Migration

Hi all,

I've migrated from my TS-419 to a TS-451, moved the disks over as per the migration guide (all checked with SSH and folders are safe and sound)

However, when I click the NAS in finder it asks for a password and times out "connection failed" - I've disabled and reenabled the services but to no avail...... everything else seems to be ok though..... any suggestions or any way of getting a more detailed ...

home share on OSX

Hi, I have found a bit of an issue with the home share on the QNAP. OSX likes to mount all shares under /Volume however I seem to get issues when multiple users on the same Mac all mount their home share. In theory I believe OSX should mount them as /Volume/home, /Volume/home1 etc and remember which account is using which. However when this happened on my iMac (OSX 10.8.5) using SMB the file access ...

Transfer to/from Mac: Very Slow. What is the best way?

Hi All,

have already a TS-459 Pro (on firmware 4.1.0) for a couple of years, running in RAID5. I have never had an acceptable transfer speed from and to the Mac.(macbook pro 2010 and imac 2009 on OSX 10.9.4)
Same thing is valid for showing files and directories of the QNAP in Finder.

I can run it via afp or smb but it takes ages to transfer big files. Now I try to transfer a ...

Cannot connect to my NAS via SAMBA

I'm running a QNAP 569L, and made a advanced system reset. First out worked out well but then I can't get any Samba connection to the NAS. If I try to mount a Network share (Finder, go to, connect to server smb://192.168.0.10...) I immediately get an Error that the server is not eventually not existent. If I try the same with the afp Protocoll all works fine. Can anybody ...

How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

On my mac laptop's desktop I have created a series of shortcuts/aliases which take me straight through to the files stored on my NAS. This means I can go to my video library and play a video with VLC without having to use any qnap interface. I hate using the Qnap software and just want the NAS to work like a big dumb drive rather than it building its role at every opportunity. How can ...

Will AFP use Active Directory permissions to control access?

Just curious if this will work. I have smb access to a share but not afp access using the same credentials.

Simple but not obvious question on SMB

I have a 419PII with the latest firmware installed and am about to upgrade my computers to OSX.9. Knowing that Apple is swathing to the use of SMB over AFP in 10.9, I have attempted to do so before upgrading my OS. AFP is disabled on my NAS under Network Services and I have enabled SNMP. I can connect to my NAS fin with my desktop hard wired into it, but my laptop does not ...
