Plex can't see mergerfs volume content

    • OMV 3.x
    • Plex can't see mergerfs volume content

      Hi

      I have installed OMV 3.0.20 and upgraded it to 3.0.24, installed Unionfilesystems 3.1.3 and created a mergerfs volume that contains five 8Tb drives

      And installed Plex Media Server...

      The mergerfs volume is :

      /media/8f7e0e14-5274-46ee-b893-68d24a653142

      and contains a few folders

      Diverse
      Musik
      Plexmedia
      Programmer

      And I can't see the folders in Plex.

      I have searched the forum for solutions but can't find anything that works..

      Does anyone have a solution to my problem ?

    • I would install the resetperms plugin and fix the permissions. It is in the omv-extras testing repo.

    • I have installed Resetperms plugin, how should i activate it... I can see that it is under "Shared Folders"

      Another thing that I have noted is that when I would edit Plex Library I can only see the mergerfs volume to the left



      If I select / and media, the mergerfs volume don't show up to the right, only all the "normal" volume/drives...

    • Activate? You pick the shared folder you want to reset permissions on and click Reset Perms. Done.

      Plex pics don't help me since I don't use it.

    • Just a update on the status...

      I found out that Plex could not play any media files no matter where I placed them and no matter what premissions they had...

      Reinstalled the OS a few times with different approach.. and found out that on clean install, with only one drive (from the five 8Tb mergerfs pool) mounted
      and with Plex version 0.9.17.2.2159-2bd156c_amd64 installed, Plex would not play any files, but with Plex version 0.9.16.6.1993-5089475 installed it would play.

      So now the only "problem" is that Plex can't see the mergerfs volume, but I have added the Plex content by adding the folders from each drive to Plex..

      So instead of one folder in the plex Library
      /media/8f7e0e14-5274-46ee-b893-68d24a653142/Plexmedia/Film
      I now has five...
      /media/d399fe73-cd9b-4a34-8fee-0b7a52c5d9bc/Plexmedia/Film
      /media/45f7af44-e353-450f-9052-0785d3fda1e9/Plexmedia/Film
      /media/50ff8597-dd2d-4ded-b248-e44efddd4271/Plexmedia/Film
      /media/235247d3-8364-41ea-a235-2d67a622fa8b/Plexmedia/Film
      /media/eedd37d9-9559-4107-b4cf-5cbc5aeef9d4/Plexmedia/Film
    • There is a problem with Plex version 0.9.17.2.2159-2bd156c_amd64. By default the /plexmediaserver folder is placed on a data drive in OMV. Data drives in OMV have noexec properties and the transcoder will not run from such a drive.

      One solution is to downgrade to 0.9.16.6.1993-5089475.

      The other is to install version 0.9.17.2.2159-2bd156c_amd64 and remove noexec properties on the data drive that has /plexmediaserver/ on it.
