                                                  <div>I was using an
                                                    iomega SAN device
                                                    which worked
                                                    perfectly for Time
                                                    Machine which worked
                                                    great until I added
                                                    a second drive. The
                                                    SAN kept thinking
                                                    there was a problem
                                                    with my second drive
                                                    in RAID1. And since
                                                    the iomega needs to
                                                    erase both drives to
                                                    get RAID1 back, it's
                                                    not a great
                                                    situation. So I've
                                                    been trying to get
                                                    my FreeNAS 8.3.1
                                                    server to work with
                                                    Time Machine on my
                                                    Macs. The web UI
                                                    makes it seem like
                                                    it's
                                                    point-and-click. But
                                                    the unRTFM method
                                                    doesn't seem to
                                                    work. So I followed
                                                    a few different
                                                    howtos on the web
                                                    with little more
                                                    luck. I can make
                                                    Samba/CIFS shares
                                                    that show up in
                                                    Finder. But nothing
                                                    shows up in Time
                                                    Machine.<br>
                                                    <br>
                                                    I don't really have
                                                    any data on FreeNAS
                                                    yet. I've migrated
                                                    everything to an
                                                    external 4TB drive
                                                    while I get this
                                                    squared away. And I
                                                    wouldn't mind being
                                                    able to run other
                                                    stuff on my NAS box.
                                                    It's a Core i5-2500K
                                                    with 32GB of RAM -
                                                    way overkill for
                                                    just FreeNAS and
                                                    FreeNAS isn't
                                                    delivering on
                                                    ease-of-use.<br>
                                                    <br>
                                                    Dipping a toe in the
                                                    waters, I decided to
                                                    try setting up
                                                    netatalk and avahi
                                                    on my Ubuntu 12.10
                                                    workstation. I
                                                    followed this guide
                                                    online:<br>
                                                    <br>
                                                    <a href="http://d43.me/blog/1660/concisest-guide-to-setting-up-time-machine-server-on-ubuntu-server-12-04/" target="_blank">http://d43.me/blog/1660/concisest-guide-to-setting-up-time-machine-server-on-ubuntu-server-12-04/</a><br>

                                                    <br>
                                                    I created a
                                                    /opt/tardis
                                                    directory that I
                                                    chmod'd 777 since I
                                                    wasn't given clear
                                                    instructions on how
                                                    to set permissions.
                                                    The share shows up
                                                    in Time Machine but
                                                    when I try to
                                                    connect, I get an
                                                    error on the Mac and
                                                    then the afp daemon
                                                    crashes on Ubuntu.<br>
                                                    <br>
                                                    Anyone else have any
