SMB + TimeMachine still not working well in 2019?
Well, this problem is old and still here :
- Create a user, create the Private Time Machine for this user.
- On your Mac, you see the "disk", you mount it with this user and start to backup ➜ all is fine.
NOW, mount your shares (media, whatever) on the desktop, as Guest.
Try to launch TimeMachine : the backup will fail, complaining in different ways depending on what version of macOS you have (usually it's something around wrong logins credentials...) You usually have to reboot the mac or NAS or just unmount the hidden TM disk to resolve the problem (by unmounting the other shares).
So, am I missing something or is this a known problem? Kinda "annoying" if you ask me.
PS : I tried with the latest official OS 6 and 6.10.0 RC2 + macOS 10.14.4 and macOS 10.13.6.
Thanks for your help.
