I've been playing with FreeNAS for a few weeks now within VirtualBox as I await my new NAS hardware. In general, I'm extremely impressed and can't wait to get the whole system built up. I do have one nagging issue which I haven't figured out how to resolve:
Has anyone been able to share user home folders over AFP, without having to create a new share for each user? Netatalk allows this to be performed with a simple line in AppleVolumes
I've tried mounting the root filesystem as rw, editing the file in /usr/local/etc, then restarting the AFP service. The GUI share configurations overwrite the file and my addition of "~" disappears.
#Share Home Folders
#Share Other Folders
Having to share each individual user's home folder would be a frustration. There seems to be support for sharing home folders over CIFS, why not AFP?
Please note that all user folders would be located in /mnt/home, and listed that way via the GUI for each user. I imagine this all just gets written to /etc/passwd, but haven't double checked that.
