Remoteshare and Windows file share

    • OMV 2.x
    • Remoteshare and Windows file share

      8| Hello,

      I have installed the remoteshare plugin and connected that to a samba file share on a remote Windows XP machine. I have the share mounted/enabled within both the samba and FTP modules in OMV.
      From remote machines connected to OMV I am able to view the files/folders on the remote XP share. However, I am unable to upload or change anything within the share without getting a permission denied error. I have the OMV users set for Read/Write access on the share within OMV. The XP File share is not locked down with any permissions. I can modify files on the share when logged into the OMV terminal as root, just not from the normal users using OMV services. I also tried resetting the shared folder permissions to give access but also got permission denied from there. This has me a bit confused. Any insight would be much appreciated.

      Thank you.

    • Try edit the fstab with

      nano /etc/fstab The line that contains cifs mount

      add this options

      uid=0,gid=100

      So the line looks like this

      //10.10.46.60/test /media/829e5277-8e9c-4353-aa5e-8cb125cdf0f9/pool1 cifs username=PSAP_Lab,uid=0,gid=100,password=password,sec=ntlm,_netdev,iocharset=utf8 0 0

      Now umount the path with umount /media/829e5277-8e9c-4353-aa5e-8cb125cdf0f9/pool1
      Then run mount -a

      Let me know if it works

    • That seems to kill the share altogether. When I do an "ls" command it shows as empty now. I verified the Windows host is still up and reachable. Does placement matter for that statement in the fstab?


      Currently mine looks like this," //10.10.46.60/test /media/829e5277-8e9c-4353-aa5e-8cb125cdf0f9/pool1 cifs username=PSAP_Lab,uid=0,gid=100,file_mode=0775,dir_mode=0775,password=password,sec=ntlm,_netdev,iocharset=utf8 0 0"
    • Ok so I changed my statement to look like this, "//10.10.46.60/test /media/829e5277-8e9c-4353-aa5e-8cb125cdf0f9/pool1 cifs username=PSAP_Lab,uid=0,gid=100,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,password=password,sec=ntlm,_netdev,iocharset=utf8 0 0"

      I am now able to modify and upload files to the share through FTP and samba. However, from a windows machine connected to the samba share; if I try to create a new folder, it will immediately change into an unknown file that will not open. I don't have enough time to name the file before it changes to unknown.

      I am able to create and enter folders using FTP without issue now.

      I don't know about that.no idea what's the problem. Btw the line you modified put it outside of the openmediavault tags in fstab, otherwise any new disk you mount will rewrite the line to default.
