Netatalk3 TimeMachine volume for OSX backups
Full Description


Netatalk running in docker for time machine backups.

docker pull arve0/timemachine
docker run -e "PASSWORD=asdf" -v /host/mnt/backup:/backup -p 548:548 --net=host -d arve0/timemachine

Connect with timemachine:asdf. If environment variable PASSWORD is not set, timemachine is the default password.

Note that --net=host doesn't work with ubuntu trusty 14.04:

For CentOS 7:

If you receive "You do not have the necessary read, write and append privileges on the selected network backup disk" from the time machine client, your will need to verify the permissions on the backup directory that is created when the container is first run.

I had to stop the container, modify the permission, and restart the container.
