Does anyone have any experience using the Apple Time Machine function, as I can’t get it to work. I’m not sure if I need to do some config to enable it?
DS5100 is running WS2012R2E - stock image and freshly reinstalled
Mac is running OS X 10.12 - so I can’t use the 2012R2 connector on it
My machine has the WD AFP and Bonjour services running. I’m not sure if the connector is actually required - I would have thought the AFP service would present the share to the Mac as a Time Machine option. I don’t get ANY AFP shares available to my Mac, just standard Windows shares.
I’ve found this website blog: http://blog.unit34.co/2016/02/wd-sentinel-ds6100-supporting-time.html which provides a little bit of info. I did a search in my registry and it couldn’t find “TimeMachine” anywhere, which is making me wonder if my WD AFP service actually installed correctly, or is configured correctly in order to serve a TM share. I’m suspecting that it’s not configured correctly.
I know there are work arounds to get TimeMachine working on a Windows share, but I would much rather get the actual AFP protocol working as intended.
I did use the Extremez-IP installer in the WD AFP package, but upon installation the Extremez-IP application says it’s trial period has expired. Not quite sure why they include it.
