Hello everybody,
I would like to setup an automatically Amanda backup to my FRITZ.NAS.

This question is related to this post, but has no satisfactory answer for me.

Right now, I could just find solutions to mount FRITZ.NAS devices via CIFS and when I look into Amanda’s documentation:

*For Windows fans: Let’s be clear here. This only works if client AND server side are UNIX machines. And it only works to use NFS. If you want to use Windows sharing (CIFS), you can try to use the nounix mount option in /etc/fstab of your openHAB machine, but this is known to not work in various cases and to cause trouble. You are COMPLETELY on your own here. Using CIFS is NOT SUPPORTED . Let alone it also does not make sense as NFS can do the same but any Windows machine will not run 24x7 as a RPi or NAS will do.

I noticed, that especially CIFS is NOT SUPPORTED!

So can anyone give me a hint?

Hi @godlyblade ,

I just documented my setup in this post :

It seems we have a very similar setup, so I think this should work for you.
