Description Adam Goode 2008-06-27 04:38:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Netatalk is compiled with the cdb CNID scheme by default. If afpd crashes (or
the server reboots unexpectedly), this can corrupt the database rendering the
volume inaccessible.

The --with-cnid-default-backend=dbd should be passed to configure, to avoid this

it says:

cdb: database can only become corrupted if an afpd daemon crashes unexpectedly,
is killed by the administrator or the whole machine crashes

dbd: This design combined with the transactional updates makes the CNID database
crashproof: Any of the participating afpd daemons, the database daemon itself or
the whole machine can crash and the CNID database should still be in a
consistent state.
