I'm trying git-annex for the first time and having some issues.

I have a WD MyBook 2TB Cloud Drive and using OSX Sierra.

I want to create an Annex on one the NAS smb shares and then a Amazon Cloud Drive replica for offsite backup.

When I run git annex init from the mounted share in OSX it fails with the below:

``` git-annex init init Detected a filesystem without POSIX fcntl lock support.

Enabling annex.pidlock.

Detected a filesystem without fifo support.

Disabling ssh connection caching.

Detected a crippled filesystem.

Disabling core.symlinks.

Enabling direct mode. A300 second timeout exceeded while waiting for pid lock file .git/annex/pidlock ```

Below are the results of git-annex version

Is it possible to have an annex on a SMB share?
