    Hi, Guys,

    I've just bought new iMac with Snow Leopard and installed Lion on it. In my home network I have NAS Synology DS211+ running.
    Under the Snow Leopard I did not have any problem accessing it from my iMac. But, under Lion I can not do it anymore. The message it gives is:
    "The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem."

    However, I can access my NAS with the Synology's Disc Station Manager and see all my files.

    Any ideas how to make Lion and NAS working together again?

    There was an update for the NAS that fixed the problem. Just log in and install the update (or download it from the Synology website if you're still running the older version).

    Thanks for the fast reaction, guys!

    Indeed, Synology issued a new firmware update to Disk Station Manager 3.2 (I had 3.1 on my DS 211+) especially for Lion.
    And the solution was very simple:
    1. Log in with admin to DSM
    2. Launch "Control Panel"
    3. In the "System" tools find "DSM Update" and launch it
    4. Click "Check updates" and wait until the NAS downloads update
    5. After download is successful, just agree to install it
    Then NAS will restart, install the update and give you a notification when it is finished.
    And that's it! It is connected again!

    Thanks again!
