Complete Linux novice here, I've been trying to set up one of my disks in my server as a Time Machine backup.
Below is a follow up from this post: http://www.reddit.com/r/applehelp/comments/1r7rzy/trouble_setting_up_time_machine_share_on_ubuntu/
I've been Google-fuing away with some success, I deleted and reinstalled NetaTalk, I could see the server but when I tried to set it up I got this error:
Time Machine can't access the backup disk "TimeMachine". The operation couldn't be completed. (OSStatus error 2.)
A quick change of permissions fixed that.
I can now access my drive on my server and point Time Machine to it. Only one problem, it's only showing less than ~30GB of space on the drive.
For a quick test I tried creating a folder on the Time Machine drive on my Mac but it never showed up on the Ubuntu side.

Now this could be two things;
- It could be pointing to my OS SSD in the sever
- The size of the Time Machine drive is limited some how.
This is what is in the /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default file at the moment
# By default all users have access to their home directory #~/ "Home Directory" options:usedots,upriv ea:ad /mnt/TimeMachine/tm_backup "TimeMachine" options:usedots,upriv,tm ea:ad allow:myusername
Tried redefining where the backup is
mkdir /mnt/TimeMachine/tm_backup sudo chown username:username /mnt/TimeMachine/tm_backup chmod 755 /mnt/TimeMachine/tm_backup
But it's still saying that there is ~30GB of space on the drive
