Tips: NAS System

"NAS storage systems often use their own software that only mimics Windows. Only Windows NAS systems are supported by QlikView."

It is my understanding that NAS are no longer supported. It has to be a SAN and a Windows share.

Not really. It doesn't need to be a SAN (Storage Area Network).  A NAS using Windows File System (NTFS) and SMB/CIFS for communication is perfectly fine, such as Windows Storage Server 2012 (or just a share on any Windows machine will do).

Important thing to remember is that other files systems except NTFS, such as ext2-4, ZFS, exFAT etc, are not supported.

Same goes for communication protocol. Only SMB/CIFS is supported, not NFS, AFP, NCP or similar.
