When a shared folder is accessed via AFP, a .AppleDB folder is created at the root of the share to store the CNID database. However, from versions 3.x of netatalk, and with actual configuration, I think it should not.
- Netatalk is in version 3.0.5 (QNAP firmware up-to-date 4.1.0) (current netatalk version : 3.1.6)
- CNID backend is DBD
- dbpath for all shared folders are : /var/netatalk/CNID//.@cnid/SHAREDFOLDERNAME (default location)
What do you think ...
