Default OpenBSD 5.8 Netatalk and Timemachine

Installing netatalk and configuring it for volume share and Time machine is a very easy task on OpenBSD.

Install the following package :
pkg_add netatalk
Choose Netatatalk 3.1.7 when asked which version to install. All the needed dependency will be grab automatically.

Put the following in your /etc/rc.conf.local file:
pkg_scripts=messagebus avahi_daemon netatalk
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
Start the services:
/etc/rc.d/messagebus start
/etc/rc.d/avahi_daemon start
/etc/rc.d/netatalk start
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.

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

OpenBSD can transform any of your useless PC into a Timecapsule.
