    Synology Beta AFP server seems to work.

    Wow, did I luck out! I didn't even consider not being able to connect to my NAS when I installed Lion today. After I found out that Lion wasn't mounting AFP shares from my DS210+, I quickly found the Synology Beta 3.2 and it seems to work.

    Iomega doesn't seem as prepared or ready to support it. Sucks because it's a great NAS and I have 400GB of Time Machine backups and other stuff on there I don't want to lose access to it.

    So you're saying create a partition for SL and run TM from there? How does that help with the Lion install? IF and when I go to restore with Lion recovery it will not see NAS. Also TM only backs up current partition right?

    I think I'm going to just chug along with SL until Iomega fixes it on their side or people find a hack/workaround.

    QNAP has an update to their OS, that fixes the AFP issue with Lion's TimeMachine. I'm in no rush to apply it since I'm still on Snow Leopard.

    In order to use Time Machine with non-Apple NASes with Lion, you need netatalk version 2.2 or later. Problem is, version 2.2 is still in beta, so most vendors will be hesitant to use it on their product. Also, you need to specify UAMS DHX2 on netatalk 2.1.5 or later.
