Can't execute from shared folders

  • While using Win10, I'm trying to run .exe files from folders shared with SMB/CIFS, but I keep getting this kind of error:


    Wherever I look in OMV control panel I can only find the configuration of read/write permissions. I have 2 user accounts in OMV and basically want them to do whatever they want with those shares. How can I do that?

  • Data drives are mounted with "noexec" option. You can check if it is working when you mount it with "exec". There are some threads about this how to do it.

  • macom thank you for your reply.

    I've followed the instructions from TDL's video (removed the noexec attribute, saved, rebooted), deleted all shared folders from SMB/CIFS and "Shared folders", then shared them again, but the problem remains.

    Following additional checks from the second link here's what i got:

    1. /etc/openmediavault/config.xml

    2. /etc/fstab

    3. cat /proc/mounts

    In the last part there's an 'rw' attribute in these lines:

    /dev/sda1 /srv/dev-disk-by-label-3tb ext4 rw,relatime,jqfmt=vfsv0,usrjquota=aquota.user, 0 0
    /dev/sdc1 /srv/dev-disk-by-label-1tb ext4 rw,relatime,jqfmt=vfsv0,usrjquota=aquota.user, 0 0

    Could this be the problem? Any other ideas?

  • Is the executable bit set on file system level?

    How do I do that? (I'm fairly new to linux systems).


    Meanwhile, I followed the guide from one of your previous links and i added the line


    to /etc/default/openmediavault, so now when I mount my ext4 drives, there's no 'noexec' attribute by deafault. The problem is still there.


    Another thought. Could the problem be that OMV overrides access rights to R/W only when you set up a folder to share?
