Questions about using NAS on Mac OS.

NFS shares not accessable

I use my Mac (10.6.8) to run XBMC and I powered up the other day and I couldn't connect to the qnap's (TS-659 Pro II with FW: 4.1.0) NFS shares that have been working for 2 years, this is a single port setup.

When I go to verify the connections in OS X it says the NFS server appears to be functional, The NFS server responded and appears to be functioning.
I use the ro,resvport ...

Unix file permissions headache rwx


when copying files to a Turbo NAS share, the file permissions are not preserved but are always set to -rwx------ for every file. This gives me headaches.

I have a TS-269L (4.0.3) serving files through SAMBA to a MacBook (OSX 10.8.5). I mount the share on the MacBook using Finder. Finder automagically displays the NAS in the sidebar, I click on it, enter my credentials and select the share I want to use. The ...

How to drag-drop files to QNAP?

Hi, when I open Finder on my Mac Air, I can drag-drop files from QNAP to the Mac -- but not from the Mac to the QNAP. I assumed from the promotional literature for the NAS that I could drag-drop files.

Can anyone help? I assumed it must be something in my System Preferences, but I've tried everything and nothing seems to work.

Version: QNAP TS-420
Firmware: 4.1.0 (20140612)
Operating System: OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 ...

I've also setup to "Hide" those two shares.

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


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 ...
