I appologise in advance if this is in the incorrect forum. Would a mod please move it if it is.

I have a QNAP TS439 Pro Server that is primarily used to store all my files on from my Windows 7 PC. I have recently purchased a MBP 15" and wish to use the server to backup my MBP using TimeMachine. I am accessing it (NAS) using an ethernet hardwired connection. Note. In finder I can see and access the server because I have downloaded all my photographs into iPhoto and also all my songs into iTunes.

I have set the server to accept the back up. See below:



When I go to the MBP settings and start the application, I see the NAS and get asked to put in my password. After that I find I cannot logon.







If I try to logon as myself, I cannot get access, and the same if I logon as TMBackup. It returns the error message " The operation could not be completed (OSStatus error 2.)

Can anyone please shed any light on this?

The login name is:

TimeMachine


If that in itself does not do it, I'd be shooting an email to QNAP or see if they have a forum.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thanks. Yes I will look on their forum, but I do not hold out much hope.

Anyway, I used TimeMachine.

It asks for a password. I still cannot logon and still get the same error message. Further reading advises that I should set a password in Time Machine preferences. There is nowhere to do this!

I have also read through this article.....

Mac OS X 10.5: Security tips for using Time Machine over a network

The article also advises that a password be set in Time Machine preferences.

As far as I can see it is not a QNAP problem as the root of the problem is on the MBP when starting to run the application especially with regards to password requirements.

Edited. I went back to basics and started again and using TimeMachine again I reset the password yet again and it worked this time. So not a QNAP or Apple problem, it was my problem. Thanks again.

Thanks for the response. How can I test that everything is fine when I have used TimeMachine on the network. Is there a tutorial for this?
