10.6: Set up Time Machine on networked AFP volume
Authored by: macdebian on Dec 25, '09 12:15:02PM

I'm running OSX 10.6 and trying to get Time Machine to back up to a fileserver running Debian Lenny with netatalk and avahi. The target Debian filesystem is HFS+ and was created with the mkfs.hfsplus command from the hfsprogs package. Netatalk was patched using this trick:

I followed the instructions in the current hint for creating a sparsebundle with the .com.apple.TimeMachine.imacml.plist file as specified. It still doesn't work.

The backup volume shows up in the finder and can be mounted. I can copy files from the Mac to the Debian fileserver. However, Time Machine fails with an error 45. On the Debian side, the syslog shows afpd errors 4F and 4C.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
