Raspberry Pi 3 as Time machine


The Raspberry Pi 3 + external 4TB drive setup, originally I tried to set it up as Plex server. And the CPU is just not powerful enough.

I decided to convert it to a NAS for Time machine purpose.

Follow this post to install netatalk and other related setup.

Note that it's wrong info about afp configuration (Edit the file /etc/afp.conf) section.

To configure afp, you should edit

sudo nano /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default

, as stated in this post (File sharing with OSX).

To share the storage with Window machines, install samba.
