    • Shares not writable from Windows - Error "you require permission from Unix User/Root to make changes"

      Hello All,

      Sorry to ask this, but I tried searching and read a bunch of SMB threads, but didn't see the fix for this problem.

      I got a fresh OMV 1.0 install on Debian 7. I have made my Shares and they are all visable on windows PCs on the network, but when I try to write to one of the windows shares I get "you require permission from Unix User/Root to make changes".

      I am looking for these folders to be public on my windows network so I have them set to "Guest Only" in OMV. Not sure what Im missing, Im sure it is basic, but I couldn't find the answer yet. What should I check?

    • As you created the shared folder it didn't cross your mind that maybe it could be necessary if more than just the owner has write priviliges?

      Guests are neither owner, nor group (which can't write either). So what you forgot is to set the permissins to r/w everybody.

      chmod a+w /media/uuid/sharedfolder via CLI will fix your problem.
