It is important, that the rootfs is on a fast disk! I had it on a (rubbish!) usb flash drive and it was not usable. I moved it to a hdd (LaCie 5TB) which is connected via usb, and it works perfectly. I’ll see how TimeMachine backups are working.
I am not to happy with the performance and did not get TimeMachine to work (connection – fine. But I guess sone issues with timeouts and such stuff…).
So for the time being, I rely on TiomeMachine on a USB hdd attached to the monitor and use an old laptop as my NAS / Plexserver.
