[SOLVED] Shared Folders seem to be sharing options?

  • Not sure this should go under the NFS forum section but I ran into this while setting up my NFS shares:

    In OMV under "Shared Folders" I create two shares, one called
    NFSRecordingArchive with a path of data/RecordingArchive and with the ACL for "Others" set to Read-Only

    then create a share called
    SMBRecordingArchive with a path of data/RecordingArchive and set the ACL for "Others" to No Access.

    If I then edit the first share I created, NFSRecordingArchive, the ACL for Others now reads No Access....the two shares are sharing the ACL rights it seems. I can change either share's ACL setting and the other share will reflect the changes.

    Maybe I'll setup a symbolic link for one of my shares to get around this so they have different file paths, but thought I'd ask here first. I need different permissions for each share.

    Any ideas? OMV is awesome.


    running omv 0.4.16

  • I understand how it works now, thank you for the explanation. I should just setup one "Shared Folder" with the permissions set as I need them.

    For anyone else that runs into this:
    From reading a few POSIX ACL examples,

    (easier in OMV gui)
    to show all the permissions
    getfacl /path
    to set permissions

    seeing a + on the end of a directory/file in a ls -l
    means the directory/file contains extended ACL's
