Netatalk

  • malibu

    Hello Malibu,


    may i ask you about the part 2, the adjustment. I´m not that profesionall with linux, but my wife is working with a MacBook, so i have to make it work.


    My NAS is called "Speicher".


    The shares i want to acces from the Mac are:


    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Seagate3TB/Dokumente

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SamsungNVMe500GB/Download

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Seagate3TB/Ebooks

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WDNAS6TB/Filme

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WDNAS6TB/Serien

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Seagate3TB/Software

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WDGreen6TB/FotosVideosPRIV

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WDGreen6TB/Musik

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WDRED10TB/SandrasFotos

    - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-XPGNVMe1TB/Aufnahmen


    My question now is:

    - do i have to write it down like this in the confif file?


  • ich hab es mit "diesen" einstellungen eingerichtet. Der MAC reagiert gut. Es läuft.


  • I'm baffled that Apple made SMB default protocol. I mean, the added compatibility on networks with Windows machines probably clears up their feedback and support lines a lot, but when you're used to the lightning speed of AFP, SMB seems like your interfacing with a windows 98 machine over 100mb LAN.


    Once a transfer gets going, the speed of SMB is only marginally slower than AFP. But the latency of directory listing is atrocious. Not to mention network discovery delays and phantom network drives hanging around in Finder than have dropped off the network. Its 2020 geez, why go backwards?


    Can someone give a bit more detail on how to get this working in OMV5?

    I assume SSH in and 'apt-get install Netatalk'. . What else needs to happen to place nice with OMV5?


    EDIT: Bit of further research shows latest versions of SMB3 along with Catalina killing of NetBios *should* alleviate these issues, although I'm doubtful. I can still see a windows machine in Finder that hasn't been on the network since yesterday. Archaic is a word that springs to mind.
