Using Linksys Network Storage System

Devices with Mac OS X Leopard Time Machine

This document describes how to use a Linksys Network Storage System (NSS) attached storage device as the backup destination when you use the Mac OS X Leopard Time Machine application to back up your Mac data.

Products Affected

NSS4000 4-Bay Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis

NSS4100 4-Bay Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis with 1.0 TB RAID

NSS6000 4-Bay Advanced Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis

NSS6100 4-Bay Advanced Gigabit Network Storage System Chassis with 1.0 TB RAID

Problem Description

The Mac OS X Leopard Time Machine application does see the NSS as a native drive, so the NSS cannot be selected as a target backup destination from the Time Machine application.

Solution

1. Open a Terminal window on the Mac.

2. Type: defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1

Any NSS shared drives to which you have connected are displayed in the list of disk volumes you can choose for Time Machine storage.
