Problems with AFP

Post by Nerdy » Mon Jan 25, 2010 5:47 pm

Hi all.

I currently have a new TS-809 with 4 x 1.5TB Seagate 341AS drives with CC1H firmware. 809 has 3.2.1 firmware.
Using EXT3 filesystem.

When transferring large folders of data I regularly get lock-ups resulting in the transfer failing or repeatedly receiving the "XX folder already exists"

I am currently connecting via AFP from a new up to date 27" iMac and 17" MBP with 10.6. When the lock-up occurs the activity monitor shows the network data graph flat-lining. There are no errors in the system logs on the NAS.

Here are some lines from console on the Mac:

Code: Select all

25/01/10 7:41:29 PM   kernel   AFP_VFS afpfs_DoReconnect:  reconnect already in progress for /Volumes/Qusb, going back to wait

Let me know if more lines are required.

I am really having trouble trying to transfer my information to the nas.
I will try swapping the ethernet cable now also.

Any assistance appreciated.

Edit:
I also have problems when I transfer files from the same Mas using NFS. When trying to access the files back through AFP I get permission errors, ie: unable to edit files etc.

Hello Nerdy,

I hope QNAP is appreciating your complete report, and is looking into it... I

NFS does make use of gid and uid numerical representations of groups and users - these are not in sync between your OS X and the NAS very likely. If these numbers do not match, the ownership does not match.

All NAS manufacturers make use of wide-open U**x protections to allow "smooth" (==workable, not perfect theoretical protection logic...) interoperability between SAMBA, AFP, and NFS. Why ever, AFP on QNAP is not configured the same way on the QNAP.

Greetz to Downunder,
