Workshop Raspberry Pi NAS with Windows Share

  1. 1. Workshop NAS on Raspberry Pi 4 Michael Plate 08.12.2019
  2. 2. Agenda • Hardware requirements • Software requirements • Install Raspbian • Additional configuration of Raspbian • Setup external HDD • Setup Samba Server
  3. 3. Hardware requirements • Raspberry Pi 4 Computer Modell B, 1GB RAM • Adapter cable from micro HDMI (Type D) to HDMI (Type A) • official Raspberry Pi USB-C power supply 5,1V / 3,0A • piece heat sink set for Raspberry Pi 4 • microSDHC 32GB • SEAGATE Expansion Portable, 5TB HDD, 2.5 Zoll, extern • PC with card reader • USB Keyboard for Raspberry Pi
  4. 4. Software requirements • Raspian Buster Lite We don't need a desktop for a server, so the Lite version is a good choice. • balenaEtcher Flash OS images to SD cards & USB drives
  5. 5. Install Raspbian • Download Raspian Buster Lite Link: • Download balenaEtcher Link: • flash Raspian Buster Lite image to sd card Link: card-make-bootable-usb
  6. 6. Install Raspbian • Connect your Raspberry pi with your monitor, network (LAN) and keyboard • Insert the SD card into the raspberry pi • Connect the power supply and watch the output on the monitor. • First the SD card is prepared, and a restart is required. • Log in with the login pi and password raspberry. NOTE: On a german keyboard z and y are swapped! • For remote access you must activate ssh manually with follows commands sudo systemctl enable ssh sudo systemctl start ssh
  7. 7. Install Raspbian • Shutdown your raspberry pi with sudo poweroff • You can now remotely access the Raspberry Pi using SSH. • Disconnect your monitor and keyboard from raspberry pi • Startup your raspberry pi
  8. 8. Additional configuration of Raspbian • Start a terminal on your computer and execute the following command: ssh pi@<ip-address> • You still have to change other configurations such as password. Use command: sudo raspi-config • Checklist: • Change hostname • Change password • Change your keyboard settings
  9. 9. Setup external HDD • Setup and use the LogicalVolume Manager (LVM) sudo apt-get install lvm2 • Connect your external HDD to USB 3 Port (blue) and wait for a moment • With the following command you should see your drive. sudo lsblk –f
  10. 10. Setup external HDD • Hard disk is set up with LVM. PV_DEV="/dev/sda2“ sudo umount "${PV_DEV}“ sudo pvcreate "${PV_DEV}“ VG_NAME="vhd1“ sudo vgcreate "${VG_NAME}" "${PV_DEV}“ sudo vgdisplay Based on
  11. 11. Setup external HDD LV_NAME="backup-var“ VG_NAME="$(sudo vgdisplay | sudo grep "VG Name" | sudo head --lines=1 | sudo cut --characters=25-)“ sudo lvcreate -n "${LV_NAME}" -l100%FREE "${VG_NAME}“ sudo mkfs -t ext4 "/dev/${VG_NAME}/${LV_NAME}“ sudo mkdir /media/backup-var Based on
  12. 12. Setup external HDD sudo blkid | grep vhd1-backup--var open file with sudo nano /etc/fstab and insert this line at the end. UUID=f843cba9-8aec-4dd7-831d-7383ea49bd1d /media/backup-var ext4 defaults 0 0 Based on
  13. 13. Setup Samba Server • Install Samba Server sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install samba samba-common smbclient • Check Samba Server sudo service smbd status sudo service nmbd status • Basic configuration of the Samba server sudo mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf_old sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
  14. 14. Setup Samba Server • The Content of /etc/samba/smb.conf [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP security = user encrypt passwords = yes client min protocol = SMB2 client max protocol = SMB3
  15. 15. Setup Samba Server • Check configuration with testparm If you see the following messages, then you should still execute this here. Open config file with: sudo nano /etc/security/limits.conf And add at the end * - nofile 16384 root - nofile 16384 reboot your raspberry pi
  16. 16. Setup Samba Server • Create a folder for samba share: sudo mkdir /media/backup-var/backup sudo chown root:root /media/backup-var/backup sudo chmod 777 /media/backup-var/backup • Open smb.conf sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf • Add this at end [backup] comment = Samba-Backup-Share path = /media/backup-var/backup read only = no
  17. 17. Setup Samba Server • Close file and check this file with testparm • Restart Samba Server with: sudo service smbd restart sudo service nmbd restart
  18. 18. Setup Samba Server • Add user to linux and Samba Server sudo useradd -M pi-share sudo smbpasswd -a pi-share • open yourWindows Explorer and visit nas-01backup <ip-address>backup
  19. 19. Setup Samba Server At this point you have a simple Windows share installed on the Raspberry Pi. !!! Please note that this configuration exists only for this workshop and is not intended for the productive environment. !!!
