This tutorial will show you how to install netatalk on SmartOS. Netatalk is an open source implementation of the Apple Filing Protocol, which used to be the default file sharing protocol on Macs. It has since been replaced as the default protocol on Macs by SMB/CIFS. Netatalk can be used to build your own NAS from commodity hardware, instead of buying one. SmartOS supports AMD Ryzen and AMD Epyc CPUs since a while back, in addition to the long supported Intel CPUs, such as the Intel Xeon.
