I can confirm the same issue again. After I shutdown / restart my readyNAS Pro Pioneer, the AFP and sometimes SMB, won't initialize properly, so I have to start/stop the AFP/SMB service for my mac's to be able to connect to the shares.

Is this 'bug' gonna be fixed on a future release of FW ?

I am running OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and I was using autofs to automount shares.

I created the directory /afp

I added a line to the /etc/auto_master file like this:
Code: Select all
/afp auto_afp -ghost


Created the file /etc/auto_afp with something like:
Code: Select all
backup -fstype=afp afp://mynas/backup
mac -fstype=afp afp://mynas/mac


You can reboot or restart the autofs by running the command:
Code: Select all
sudo automount -vc


At this point I was able to use /afp/backup to access the backup share or /afp/mac to access the mac share.

The "-ghost" on the line in the /etc/auto_master file basically puts the "backup" and "mac" directory in the /afp directory regardless of if the share is mounted or not. Without it you would no see the backup and mac directories until you accessed them and they were mounted which would make it imposable to browse to the directory.

This was working but now that I am testing it again it is not functioning.

I have found the same issue that I often have to turn off and then turn on again the AFP service after a restart of the NAS.

This joins the other AFP problems in this NAS.

Same problem here with a Pro running 4.2.5. After the ReadyNAS reboots I can't mount my AFP shares until I connect to the admin site and stop and start AFP services.

It's a "design feature" of the Pro. Apparently it'll be fixed with the next firmware release - but there is no word on when that might be. Two months ago I was told it was on the way. Still no sign. Frustrating!

I'd consider it a game-breaking bug, as it forces me to turn off the auto-sleep/wake power management features, which is wasteful. I'd rather have my disks safely spun down and parked at night anyway.

Hi,

Has anyone tried this for Lion? I'm new to Mac OS, and get the basic concepts. I'm using an AFB share on my NV for my /Music, and of course need to remount upon a reboot.

My "Mount" file, which is an AppleScript, works fine in Lion.

The individual lines I use are;

mount volume "afp://XXX (AFP)._afpovertcp._tcp.local/YYY"

...where XXX is the name of your NAS, and YYY is the name of the share you want to mount. In FrontView I have enabled AFP for the shares, with unique access rules for every user group.

Hi KillerBob,

I tried that line, and got:

mount: You must specify a filesystem with -t.

Hi BC,

Are you sure you have enabled AFP in FrontView? Also, when you check "Finder", you should see a listing for your NAS, in the sidebar (remember to check Bonjour computers), saying something along the lines of XXX (AFP), where XXX is the name of your NAS.

Yes, the share is definitely AFP enabled. I can access content on it, no problem.

And when you go into finder, connect to the NAS (is there an AFP version?), and into a share, try to check "Get info" on that share. The server should read "afp://XXX (AFP)._afpovertcp.local/YYY" The format should read "AppleShare". Does it?

Yes, the NAS shows (AFP). When I do the "Get info" on the share, I get this:

hmmmm

If all is right, when selecting the (AFP) listing for your NAS in the finder, connecting, the Info for any share should look like:

It obviously doesn't, and I would look into the network settings in OSX.
