(It appears that the 'libgcrpyt' and 'avahi' dependencies are missing from the SFE package at present, and these need to be installed before netatalk will run.)
Netatalk 3.0.1 is now in "experemental/SFEnetatalk3" This is still a work in progress, but should work.
# pkg install developer/illumos-gcc/gcc-43 system/library/math/header-math developer/gnu developer/gnu-binutils developer/gnome/gettext
Netatalk 3 should configure Avahi/Zeroconfig automatically (assuming the services are running).
"model mimic"ing is not presently working, this is a netatalk bug, which should be fixed in the next update.
Configurations for version 2.x and version >= 3.0 are quite different. Please refer to the netatalk website for more information: http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/
There has been some mention on the netatalk mailing list of the "nbmand" zfs property causing problems where users can create but not delete files over afp. If you are experiencing this problem, try `zfs `
zfs set nbmand=off zpool/path/to/file/system`.
Stale PID file: Netatalk 3.x has a default pidfile location of `
/var/spool/locks/netatalk`. If the service won't start because of a stale lock file, delete this.
