    Time Machine over SMB (Mac OS Sierra)

    In my case, it's working using the smb-extra method. 1) Create a share (in this example, TimeMachine) and, in SMB Security Settings, set Export to No. 2) Go to Settings > SMB and, in SMB Extras, add the following content: [TimeMachine] ea support = Yes path = /mnt/user/TimeMachine vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr valid users = user1,user2 write list = user1,user2 fruit:time machine max size = 2T fruit:encoding = native fruit:locking = netatalk fruit:metadata = netatalk fruit:resource = file fruit:time machine = yes fruit:advertise_fullsync = true durable handles = yes kernel oplocks = no kernel share modes = no posix locking = no inherit acls = yes 3) Adjust path, valid users, write list and fruit:time machine max size accordingly. You should be done. Apparently, SAMBA has it's own mDNS server to advertise the Time Machine share.

    Preclear plugin

    @mrvilla, please send me the preclear plugin log (see the OP).

    Plugins for checksum and erase drives?

    Preclear Plugin uses random data all the time.

    1) For checksums we have this plugin: 2) For erase, you can use this:

    I like to run 2 cycles, but that's me. I saw nothing that indicates you got bad drives. Erase writes random data, and it's meant to erase disks prior to sell/retirement. In your case, Clear will do just fine.

    Preclear plugin

    For disk ST12000NM0007-2A1101_ZJV1HWVE and ST12000NM0007-2A1101_ZJV1GVM5 you have toggled the Enable Testing (just for debugging) switch, which only appear if Help is toggled. This option only read a portion of the disk and it's meant to allow me to proper test some features without having to wait a full prelear session. You have to run preclear on them again, without the testing option. The disk ST3250310AS_6RY9FV4D had a successful preclear session. The other two disks preclearing now are correctly invoked, you just have to sit and wait.

    If you send me your preclear log (see the OP) I can tell you if it was successful or not.

    Yep. I changed the logic on the script too, so it can write the whole resume information to the flash drive and then rename it.

    I think your server locked while the script was writing the resume information on the boot flash drive. You must cancel the resume popup and start a new instance of preclear to that drive.

    Time Machine over SMB (Mac OS Sierra)

    It's supported if used with AFP (Apple's own network filesystem). Since AFP will be deprecated, we are discussing the usage of SMB as successor of AFP.

    Time Machine over SMB (Mac OS Sierra)

    I don't advise you to try enable it manually because all changes needed will be overwritten by Unraid eventually. I did a test, not tried to put it into production. Let's wait LT implement it the right way to avoid breake something.

    Time Machine over SMB (Mac OS Sierra)

    I think you should let netatalk in place for a while, not all Macs can be updated to Sierra or High Sierra. If you need someone to proper test it before production, let me know.
