It appears that my 8TB sentinel is running into issues working with OSX 10.9 clients via time machine (or from what I can tell, it's really the other way arround.) I've done some reading and it seems that apple decided to move to an SMB based approach instead of AFP for the new iteration of the time machine client. The end result I get is that when I attempt to connect using a 10.9 host, I get a notification indicating that the server either does not exist or is unavailable. Interestingly, the NAS still shows up in the list of drives to pick from when setting up time machine.
1x OSX 10.9 client (time machine non-functional
2x OSX 10.7 clients (Time machine working as expected
1x OSX 10.8 client (time machine working as expected)
2x Windows 8.1 pro (x64) clients (automated backups working as expected
1x Windows 7 ultimate (x64) client (automated backups working as expected)
I'm investigating the issue from both approaches, the NAS side and the client side.
Has anyone had any luck getting Time Machine on mavericks (10.9) clients working with the sentinel?
