I'm setting up a home NAS device (Synology DS409) that I'm planning to use for Time Machine backups (amongst other things).
What are the tradeoffs between using iSCSI or AFP to mount the backup volume?
The Synology wiki suggests that iSCSI is better if the Mac will be frequently disconnected from the network or sleeping, from the point of view of the volume automatically remounting. What about filesystem consistency? Given that unplugging a USB drive without properly unmounting it often requires the Time Machine volume to be repaired, would iSCSI have the same issues?
