Questions about using NAS on Mac OS.

Time Machine: Multiple machines disturb each other


I have a QNAP TS-219 running Version 4.12 (newest). I have two Macs:

  • Mac mini
  • MacBook Air

Both run Yosemite 10.10.2. Both do a Time Machine backup to QNAP which works fine, as long as only ONE machine uses the TMBackup share, no matter which one. As soon as the other did a backup, both complain with the error message, that it has to recreate the whole backup (sorry, I am not at ...

TimeMachine volume: deny access

I would like to ask if it is possible to do what I am thinking about!

I can set and use correctly my QNAP TS-569L as a TimeMachine backup on my office.
I set the password (different from the admin password) in order to restrict the use of the QNAP as a TimeMachine backup.

If I give the password for TimeMachine to my colleagues (to permit them to backup their macs), they will see ...

Connecting to a network share FROM qnap

I dont have admin access to a media server share on my network. I want to copy file to the NAS from the NAS.. Cant seem to work out how to connect to (or map) shared drives on an OSX machine on the same network, from the NAS itself.

Can anyone step me through how i would do this via the QNAP interface?

SFTP to NAS - RSA key?

I use Cyberduck as my SFTP client. I can connect to the NAS and transfer files just fine.
Upon establishing a connection or starting a file transfer I get the following message in Cyberduck
Code: Select all
Changed fingerprint The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the server is #...#

I can check a box that says "Always Allow" but despite doing that the same message citing the same fingerprint comes up each time. I'd like to ...

AFP issue (TimeMachine and Finder)

Hi Everyone,

My AFP connection used to work perfectly on my Mavericks iOS. Since a couple of weeks I am not able to connect via AFP to my QNAP anymore. The impact is mainly on the Time Machine as it is the only way to back up (unless we can use SMB?).

Has anyone come across such an issue and resolved it?

NFS on Mac

hey, just looking for a bit of help. I have set up NFS to allow access to the ip that my Mac is sitting on and have set up a mount on my Mac with the setting below. When I navigate to the mount through finder it asks for a password to let me make changes to files (I.e. Renaming). In terminal I have to sudo to make any changes. I tired adding a user ...

TimeMachine gone

Since the update my Qnap TS-659 Pro + (latest firmware 4.1.1), the Time Machine is gone.

There is no menu item which would allow me to turn Time Machine on or off.
The folder from earlier backups are still on the hard drive (Qnap)
I have already manually reinstalled the firmware. In vain!

Does anyone have the same problem?
Does anyone have a solution?

Strange viewing issue

I have a strange issue with a clients TS-879U-RP which is in a mostly Apple Mac environment and configured with AFP enabled. Sometimes computers are seeing blank or no shares when saving files. If they look at the share in Finder then the folders are appearing. You can see the issue in the screenshot below. Has anyone seen this issue? Thanks

Hide non-AFP shares from Apple network browsers


I have enabled AFP, SMB and NFS network services, and disabled FTP. I also limited Bonjour to AFP in "Service Discovery". However the "SMB/CIFS" share (without an identifying network protocol appended to the name) is still visible in Mac network browsers from 10.4x-ppc to 10.75, and an FTP share is visible on the old macs, leading to confusion among our mostly non-technical users.

Is it possible to prevent Macs from seeing non-AFP shares, or ...
