TimeMachine on BOTH SMB and AFP. Is it possible?

Post by Giubenez » Tue Sep 10, 2019 8:36 pm

Dear all,
I need to backup (with Time Machine)
  • 12 x iMac with Snow Leopard 10.6.8
  • 3 x iMac with High Sierra 10.13

My idea was to buy a NAS, I know QNAP is fairly good, so I decided for (NAS TS-431P2-4G + 4x4TB WD red).

To make a long story short, at a certain point I realised that here and here they explain how to activate AFP and SMB respectively. But it's not clear to me if they can both work at the same time.

Specifically I think I'll have to configure
Snow Leopard 10.6.8 ----(AFP)----> FolderAFP@QNAP
High Sierra 10.13 ---(SMB)-----> FolderSMB@QNAP

Is it possible?

Furthermore I noticed that in the post where they show how to configure SMB it seems from the image that you configure also AFP (see the blue Note at the bottom).
ImageIs it correct?

Thank you.
