Hi, I hope someone can give me some pointers on what to try / who to ask next to solve my issue
I have set up my first omv (5) basic home server. I started by following Technodad videos and reading omv guides and forum. I have the server set up with two shared folders on separate drives. I have successfully transferred data to those folders and the permissions have been set fully open for now while I learn the permissions side of things.
I have hit the following issue that I'm struggling to get my head around to find an answer to and would appreciate any pointers on where to look to resolve.
The folders are shared via SMB/CIFS, as although I use Linux I need access from android and windows for my family members.
Having installed the data I can browse (connecting as anonymous) to the shares. I can open subfolders on the share. I can create a folder and file in any of the existing subfolders of the share. But if I then try to create a subfolder or file in the folder I just created I get a permission denied error. If I use reset perms on the share it solves the permission error but only for that instance.
I see this issue using:-
desktop installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3
desktop installed Linux Mint XFCE 20.1
Xubuntu 20.04.1 live CD
Fedora 33-1.2 live CD
I do NOT have this error using:-
Windows 10 laptop
deepin 2014.1 livecd
At first I thought it may be a Linux Mint / ubuntu issue until I fount it also present using the Fedora Live CD (which I believe is based on RedHat and not ubuntu).
Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks for taking the time to read.
