I run OMV5 on an ancient armel NAS that still does the job. I've turned off the SMB encryption to help the CPU. Even then, the SMB performance is about half the speed of Netatalk (30 vs 60+ MB/s).
For that reason, I've decided to install Netatalk manually. The good news is that the installation is so simple the lack of a plug-in is no big deal.
Let's assume you have a running OMV5 with existing shared folder(s) with the correct access rights. All you need to do as root is:
1. "apt install netatalk" to install all the necessary packages
2. "nano /etc/netatalk/afp.conf" to create the configuration file. Below is an example config file to be adjusted based on your needs.CodeDisplay More
[Global] hostname = NAS - AFP spotlight = no [Share1] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data/Share1 [Share2] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data/Share2 [Share3] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data/Share3 [TimeMachine] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data/timemachine time machine = yes
3. "systemctl restart netatalk" to take the new config into account
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:
My question now is:
- do i have to write it down like this in the confif file?
[Global] Speicher = NAS - AFP spotlight = no [Dokumente] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Seagate3TB/Dokumente [Download] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SamsungNVMe500GB/Download [Ebooks] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Seagate3TB/Ebooks .........etc [TimeMachine] path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data/timemachine time machine = yes
