We've got a Lenovo IX2 NAS. http://www.lenovo.com/shop/emea/content/pdf/storage/product%20release%20information%20%28pri%29/pri_lenovo_iomega_ix2_2bay_en.pdf
We are trying to create VHDxes on it with the intent of attaching the VHDxes to some of our virtual servers so that each server has a network location to which it can save incremental Windows Image Backups. (This works with locally attached storage.)
If I try to create a VHDx on the NAS, I get "incorrect function". If I create a VHDx locally, then move it to the NAS and attempt to attach it via Disk Management, I get "incorrect function". However, I can read/write/modify regular files to the NAS with no problems.
I did some Googling and I found a thread talking about Netgear NASes in which it recommended enabling SMB2. All I can find in the IX2's configuration is just enabling or disabling SMB--there is no mention of which version.
So, I'd like to be able to create and modify VHDxes on this NAS--is it possible or should I scrap it and buy something else?
