The share was exported via afp only, Bonjour enabled, Time Machine checkbox ticked.
After upgrading to macos mojave (10.14) a client complained with the dreaded : "The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported."
After searching on samba.org, I exported the share via cifs *and* afp and added the following options to smb.conf:
and the Timemachine was happy again.
Code: Select all
durable handles = yes kernel oplocks = no kernel share modes = no posix locking = no fruit:advertise_fullsync = true vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr fruit:aapl = yes
While I don't know if this is the right way to configure a server for mojave, I want to share my experience with you, as it might help someone with similar problems.
Suggestions for improvement are welcome.
- Should we have a checkbox on the CIFS config page for Timemachine to set the appropriate options in smb.conf?
- Is is expected behaviour, that we need both afp and samba?
