The access to an access limit folder by the AFP is not possible. Time Machine backup is not possible
Firmware update for improvement is planned.
My workaround is to mount it via SMB.

[Update 2] Here is a workaround on the support pages from Apple.
Lion and Lion Server maintains a list of authentication methods that are not allowed. These are the older, less secure authentication methods. You may need to enable one or more of these methods to support legacy devices or protocols.
- Open Terminal.
- Execute the following commands:sudo chmod o+w /Library/Preferences sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1
- Restart the computer.
- For an AFP connection, on the client make an AFP connection to another system so that the AFP Client preference file will be filled in with the default set of values.If you want to enable a different User Authentication Method (UAM), execute the apprpriate Terminal command on the client system. For example, this command enables DHCAST128 by removing it from the list of disabled methods:sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array "Cleartxt Passwrd" "MS2.0" "2-Way Randnum exchange"
To see a list of the disabled User Authentication Methods (UAM), run the following command in Terminal on the client:
defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams
Typically, the disabled UAMs are “Cleartxt Passwrd”, “MS2.0”, “2-Way Randnum exchange”, and DHCAST128.
To enable one of these UAMs, the list of disallowed methods needs to not list the UAM that you want to exclude.
[Update3] Buffalo released some beta firmware updates. See Compatible devices
Hey I got a pretty effective work-around on my link station/MBP.
1.) Share you time machine folder on the NAS with smb (Windows Compatible)
2.) Go to “connect to server” in the “go” menu of Finder
3.) Enter smb://your-nas.local
4.) it will ask for user, password and which folder to mount
5.) go to terminal and enter:
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1
6.) Now you can restore from your backup or use migration assistant with no probs!
7.) If you want you can turn Unsupported volumes off again with:
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 0
I’ve tried both this and the other workaround on my Terastation HD-HTGL/R5 and I can’t connect via AFP or SMB
dmesg just tells me
smb_smb_negotiate: Support for the server BUFFALO2 has been deprecated (PreXP), disconnecting
Naturally I tried Lion out… no probs… all software seemed to work… then I installed it to my other machines and wham… no NAS server.
I did all of these workarounds and still no connection. I have contacted Buffalo Tech Support and they state they have given it to their developers. Still have not received a fix response. They keep telling me that it is an old unit. I purchased it in 2007.
Does anyone recommend a terastation that will work with Lion?
2007 and old? Well… I wonder that they did not say ‘ancient’ with the speed of things getting updated. Just stumbled on this same problem. :-/
Call Apple support and tell them you are unhappy and will switch to Windows if they don’t create a workaround. We can’t be expected to upgrade all our hardware in the office to accommodate their OS update and hardware developers can’t be expected to add new authentication methods to hardware that is 5-6 years old!
Indeed, I upgraded my computers to Lion only to discover this problem later and now we can’t access our pictures, iTunes and other things. It’s made the computer unusable and the only solution I can find is to go back to Windows.
But that does not help to find a solution.
This isn’t a problem of apple. It’s a problem of the NAS providers. They didn’t invested into the lonely guy, who developed the next version nod netatalk.
And he did played his cards right , he got funding now from them and released the next version of it.
Now the NAS providers need to upgrade their firmware and things go back to normal.
The Linux machines have no problem mounting a Windows share. This is Apple’s fault and it happened when they dropped Samba and wrote their own SMBX server and used it in Lion, the problem is in how Apple handles authentication. Take a network trace between a Linux client and a Windows server, do the same with an Apple server and compare the traces. We are trying to work through it at work to support our Apple customers but as Apple is not using open source our options are limited.
This is typical apple… when things worked before on the previous OS Snow L they have to change it all up and expect everyone to change their hardware in the hopes they would buy from them the next time around. Remind you guys of Vista when it first came out? another apple blunder to go with Final Cut X… all those changes and no backward compatability. Lets see what works with Buffalo nas (no firmware update needed), Red Hat, Ubunto (all linux distros), Win 98se, WinME, Windowx 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, (all flavors 32bit and 64), Android, Amiga Emulator, Latest apple Snow L on MAc and Vmware) Best to go Back to SL like many went back to Final cut 7 over FCX for the same reasons. Wish apple would stop repeating bad history before they burn all that money down to bankruptcy again… you could create a share that works from any of these other systems then share back to the Lion from those sources in a sense creating a middle man… going to try this as a workaround… if it works then so much for Lion security 🙂 will let ya know what I tried out that works… sorry about the rant went through the 12 years of apple transition to the real world and not going back anytime soon…
I had the same problem accessing my Terastation under Lion & the workaround did not work. Instead, I flashed the firmware with a telnet enabled version (same version no.), then installed the OpenTera_v5 upgrade & Samba_v3, and now everything works again.
See the discussion thread (krishkal’s comments, in particular) at:
S/He recommends the steps:
1. Flash a new firmware with Telnet enabled from here: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/itimpi/telnet.htm
2. Install the OpenTera v5 upgrade, and then Samba 3 (3.0.37) from here: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/itimpi/opentera.htm
NOTE, however, that you need a WinTel PC hardwired on your network to run the firmware upgrade (run it in Windows XP SP-3 compatibility mode & give the software permanent full admin access — first time after the prompt it fails, second time it works).
A work-around I used as I couldn’t even mount in SMB in OSX Lion – you need to change some security settings in Lion to make it work with “old” SMB:
