  1. And you also need this the following in addition at the affected share section (not at [global]): fruit:time machine = yes Otherwise you won't see the affected share at Apple's Time Machine. But this can't be done at "Settings/SMB/Samba extra configuration" I assume !?
  2. Have you configured unRAID-SMB with joining to an Active Directory domain controller ?
  3. If this works well, the it would be great to know the right settings. On the other side, I read "Note: AFP is now deprecated and macOS users are encouraged to use SMB only." at: So, AFP don't run stable and the SMB-Share isn't visible in Time Machine wile ADS is enabled, hmmm ...
  4. Same problem for me. It seems that the "Time Machine support via SMB" is not working if Active Directory implementation is enabled at the SMB settings on V 6.7. While checking the /etc/rc.d/rc.samba script, I found out that if [ "$SECURITY" = "ads" ] then no "fruit:..." settings will be done at /etc/samba/smb-names.conf. Without these settings, there is no Time Machine support via SMB. See also here: https://www.mankier.com/8/vfs_fruit If I'm adding the fruit settings manually (and restart the SMB deamon) then I'm able to see the SMB-Share at Time Machine for adding the share. But I also remember, that there are some issues on this implementation of fruit/samba. If im not wrong, maybe this is the reason why it is not working as expected...
  5. It seems that the "Time Machine support via SMB" is not working if Active Directory is enabled (joined to an Active Directory domain controller) at the SMB settings. Correct?
  6. I have done everything exactly as described but no success. One Mac has done the TimeMachine Backup 5 times without issues. At the 6th time, TimeMachine said, a new backup is needed and failed. From that time, I have seen many errors/failures at the unRAIDs syslog (see below). Also from that time, no Mac is able to do a TimeMachine backup anymore and skip the backups to unRAID. At the same time, all Time Machine backups to the old Synology system still works without any issues. After rebooting unRAID the afpd errors disappears and Time Machine is able to doing backups again, but only until the afpd error comes back and the loop starts from the beginning. It seams the the AFP implementation isn't stable enough!? Any other ideas?
  7. No, but thanks for the advice. I've done almost all the points except for moving the AppleDB into the SSD cache pool. Will try this and see what's happen ...
  8. Hi All, since years, we are using a Synology system for backing up all our Mac computers. The backups runs over the AFP-Protocol without any issues. Because of power (and money) saving, we want to change to a unRAID system for these backus. So we have bought a Supermicro storage server SSG-6029P-E1CR12L (X11DPH-T mainboard), 96GB RAM, Intel Xeon 4110 CPU, 10 of 14TB WD Ultrastar DC HC530 HDDs, 2 Intel SSDSC2KB019T8 1.9TB SATA-SSDs, 2 Intel SSDPELKX020T8 2.0TB NVME-SSDs. On this Hardware, unRAID 6.6.6 was installed and updated to 6.6.7. Since weeks, we don't get one simple TimeMachine backup from a brand new Mac which has about 270GB to backup (over AFP). We are getting a lot of errors like described above. Only one backup was finished successfully, but at the next backup TimeMachine displayed that the backup must be checked and after that check, TimeMachine displayed that a new backup has to be created (the previous backup was automatically renamed to ...purgeable.sparsebundle). Also the backup time is very slow (24+ hours). The Mac and unRAID is connected with a 10GBit/sec. link to a 10GBit switch. Have also tried many settings without success. My question here is, is there a best practice documentation on how to setup unRAID properly for running Time Machine backups, like we have done with our old Synology system? Or maybe unRAID isn't the right solution for their requirement. Are there any ideas ... ? Thanks in advance. Reini. P.S.: Btw. the rest of the unRAID services runs well.
  9. You mean it's not possible to configure it over the unRAID GUI - correct? Because on OS level, it is possible to configure different MTU sizes at different VLANs on the same physical interface.
  10. Hi unRAID-Team, are there some news on this topic?
  11. I got a new unRAID system with a 2x 10GB NIC for 802.3ad bonding as a single trunk (bond0). Have also configured 3 VLANs and want to configure the MTU of one of these to 9000 (jumbo frames). It is possible to set the MTU to 9000 on the interface (default VLAN at br0) itself. But I couldn't find out how to set the MTU only on the 2nd VLAN (br0.777) to 9000 and leave the other both VLANs (br0 and br0.666) to MTU 1500. (Have already set up different Linux-Systems with this settings successfully) It would be great if anybody has any idea how to configure it at unRAID. Thanks in advance.
  12. Many thanks for your Feedback.
  13. We have a new SuperMicro Server which has only intel 10G NICs on board. Does the actual release of unRAID support one of the following 10G NICs? Intel C627/x722 Intel C622/x722 Intel C621/x722 If not, is it possible to add the driver by ourself or what can be done to get the driver implemented? Thanks in advance.
