How about this problem with a raid NAS?  I have read about the MBR erase but accessing the individual drives of a 4 drive NAS is not possible from the disk utility in OSX, right?  I have a 10.7 os intel macbook that works wireless, but a 10.6 intel server over copper will start the backup and quit.  It is very odd.  I one point I upgraded the switch in my network, and it worked fine.  Later I enabled Jumbo Frames on the NAS and read/write performance was much better, but around that time the Time Machine stopped again.  Reverting did not help.


RedayNAS NV+ with three 2GB drives.

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Server
