MacOS Time machine

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

I am a new unraid user. I set up time-machine as per instructions (the ability built in not an application). Backups work fine. Plenty of space on drive/share. However Time Machine only backs up a day or two. That is when going into Time Machine I can only access current day and maybe 1-2 day back, even if I backup every day for months. Please advise.

I am also trying to enter a extra configuration for SMB:

 

[Global]
vfs objects = fruit streams_xattr  
fruit:metadata = stream
fruit:model = MacSamba
fruit:posix_rename = yes 
fruit:veto_appledouble = no
fruit:nfs_aces = no
fruit:wipe_intentionally_left_blank_rfork = yes 
fruit:delete_empty_adfiles = yes 

[TimeMachineBackup]
fruit:time machine = yes

 

It is described here: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Configure_Samba_to_Work_Better_with_Mac_OS_X

This solution works for me. Mac time machine works now fine. Its doing all backups and I can find old backups.

 

Furthermore I changed:

 

SMB multichannel: yes
Enhanced MacOS interoperability: yes
