Default OpenBSD 6.1 Netatalk and Time Machine

Here is an update of my Netatalk and Time Machine for OpenBSD 6.1.

This is now easier than before with version 6.1.

Install the following package :
pkg_add netatalk
Choose Netatalk 3.1.11 when asked which version to install. All the needed dependency will be grab automatically.

Modify the /etc/netatalk/afp.conf file:
vol preset = default_for_all_vol
hostname = openbsd
log file = /var/log/netatalk.log
mimic model = Xserver
keep sessions = yes
file perm = 0664
directory perm = 0774
cnid scheme = dbd
basedir regex = /home
time machine = yes
Enable de services:
rcctl enable messagebus avahi_daemon netatalk
Start the services:
rcctl start messagebus avahi_daemon netatalk
In a few minute you should see the shared folder on your Mac. You can also force it by using cmd+K and typing the network address of your OpenBSD server.

Done! You will now be able to backup you Mac using Time Machine in your personal folder on OpenBSD.
