I am using Retrospect 10.1.0 (221) on a MacMini to back up several Mac clients as well as three NAS devices.
I have two (Synology) NAS in my LAN, both with different IP addresses.
I experience several strange behaviours, probably all related to the same underlying problem:
I add NAS 1 as a source with afp://IP_address_NAS_1/share_A --> Share A is correctly mounted as a source in Retrospect
I would like to add my second NAS 2 with afp://IP_address_NAS_2/share_B --> Instead of mounting my second NAS under "sources", the "machine name" of NAS 1 is changed to the machine name of NAS 2. No second share is mounted
In order to narrow down the problem, I tried several things:
If I remove NAS 1 as a source in Retrospect and then try to add NAS 2, Retrospect adds again NAS 1. However, with the IP address of NAS 2 but with the share name of NAS 1. I can only add NAS 2 if I power down NAS 2 --> I am able to add each NAS independently, hence the login process to each NAS seems to work fine. Unfortunately, I can not add both NAS as sources in Retrospect
I added NAS 1 with afp://IP_address_NAS_1/share_A. Alle fine. If I want to add a second shared with afp://IP_address_NAS_1/share_B, Retrospect does not do anything --> it seems that the number of possible NAS sources is somehow limited to one
There was a posting late March, which seems to point in a similiar direction, but I did never see a resolution: http://forums.retros...and-nas-shares/
Any hints are greatly appreciated.
