My SMB share folders are visible to my Macintosh (macOS Mojave 10.14.1) but the contents are not. I do not understand why and it's driving me mad! The same folders are visible from a Linux client without problems.
To keep things simple, I've enabled Guest access to the SMB share. This removes the possibility or errors with setting folder permissions.
On the Mac, the OMV4 server is visible on the network, as are all the SMB shares (including the newly-created Guest one). Navigating to the share (expecting to see files inside it) generates the following error:
The operation can't be completed because the original item for <folder_name> cannot be found.
I get the same error whether I navigate to the share via the Finder, or use Go > Connect to server > smb:ip_address
I feel like I have tried everything, including the detailed steps described in this post, but am no closer to finding a solution.
Is it possible that the format of the NAS hard drive could have something to do with this? It's EXT4 and I know that Macs will not usually read/write to this. I thought that SMB made the source disk format irrelevant to the client.
Has any Mac user successfully shared NAS drive folders using OMV? If so, then how? OMV4 is running on a RaspPi3.
