Interoperation of Netatalk and Samba on FreeBSD
Recent Netatalk and Samba can store metadata in the compatible format.
It was tested by the following package.
The samba44 package is old but no problem. It's because the following patch is applied.
/usr/ports/net/samba44/files/patch-source3__modules__vfs_fruit.c:--- source3/modules/vfs_fruit.c.orig 2016-12-28 02:48:27.478460000 +0000 +++ source3/modules/vfs_fruit.c 2016-12-28 02:48:58.141967000 +0000 @@ -105,7 +105,7 @@ * This is hokey, but what else can we do? */ #define NETATALK_META_XATTR "org.netatalk.Metadata" -#if defined(HAVE_ATTROPEN) || defined(FREEBSD) +#if defined(HAVE_ATTROPEN) #define AFPINFO_EA_NETATALK NETATALK_META_XATTR #define AFPRESOURCE_EA_NETATALK "org.netatalk.ResourceFork" #else
Using these, the following access becomes possible.
- from Mac to Netatalk
- from Mac to Samba
- from Windows to Samba
Using "vol preset" option, the same configuration is set for all volumes.
Using "ea = samba", Extended Attributes become compatible with Samba.
[Global] vol preset = my default values [my default values] ea = samba [Homes] basedir regex = /usr/home [Test Volume] path = /export/test1 [My Time Machine Volume] path = /export/timemachine time machine = yes
Setting various options in [global], the same configuration is set for all shares.
Three vfs objects (catia, fruit and streams_xattr) provide enhanced compatibility with Apple SMB clients and interoperability with a Netatalk.
Using "hide files", the invisible files created via Netatalk are hidden from Windows. Use "hide files", not "veto files".
Don't use "fruit:locking = netatalk" because it has a bug.
[My Time Machine Volume] is commented out because Time Machine feature can not be used via SMB.
[global] foo = bar baz = qux ea support = Yes vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr ; fruit:locking = netatalk fruit:encoding = native streams_xattr:prefix = user. streams_xattr:store_stream_type = no hide files = /.DS_Store/Network Trash Folder/TheFindByContentFolder/TheVolumeSettingsFolder/Temporary Items/.TemporaryItems/.VolumeIcon.icns/Icon?/.FBCIndex/.FBCLockFolder/ read only = No [homes] [Test Volume] path = /export/test1 ;[My Time Machine Volume] ; path = /export/timemachine
