    HP, Dell, etc.. all do the same thing. "We do not support third party..." It's really just their way of avoiding any responsibility. Unless you buy both the workstation and the server from them, they won't help you get them to work together. And 90%++ you won't find a tech support person with the knowledge or experience to go far enough off-script to truly help.

    It was my honor to get Michael Tiemann's QNAP systems working with his iMac Pro and MacBook Pro last night. Never thought I would be able to help someone that smart !
    (and if you want to get that PostgreSQL 9.5.4 working on the QNAP - just let me know - I will be ready !).

    Hmm.. I didn't realize there was an issue and have been happily running Catalina for a while without any ill effect on my Synology NAS setup, RAID boxes, or even LTO6 archive setup... Catalina seems solid!

    This is how to resolve the Catalina "disconnecting" issue from NAS systems. This has nothing to do with QNAP, or Synology or any other brand. This is an Apple issue, and this is the fix.
    This fix was written by Apple, but it is "hidden" and their own tech support doesn't seem to know it. (crazy - right ?).
    this is as of 5/21/2020. I have verified that this works with multiple clients for the past 30 days.

    On the Mac running macOS 10.15 - open terminal and type this in
    nvram boot-args
    you will get an error message
    now, copy and paste the line below, and put this into terminal, and hit return - it will ask for your password - you will not see anything when you type in your password

    sudo nvram boot-args="serverperfmode=1 $(nvram boot-args 2>/dev/null | cut -f 2-)"

    now, once again, type in nvram boot-args
    you will now see this -
    boot-args. serverprefmode=1

    reboot your Mac.
    You will no longer get disconnects
