I've recently just built a server and loaded OMV 6.6 on it. Pretty slick. I've also copied my entire old NAS content to the OMV which seemed to go quite well. The issue I have is as follows:
All the files on the OMV have ownership as root:users and assigned permissions as 0644.
I've read as many guides and articles as I could find on the subject for OMV and my config either matches what's recommended -OR- it doesn't work/change anything.
On the OMV I have three hdd's; 1)150GB as the system drive and 2)5000GB defined in a unionfs. I've set my permissions for the shared drive and tried setting the ACL accordingly but as of now the ACL has been removed to try this.
My main desktop client is running LinuxMint 20.1 and I have a mount entry in my fstab to mount the OMV. I can see the mounted device and actually access it. That's were I see the ownership as all root and while I can usually open anything, writing is denied of course. I also have several Windoze based devices that require access as well but that's perhaps a different issue.
As I see it I must first change all file ownership to something other than root and any method that I tried looks like its running but when done nothing is changed.
I also can gain ssh access to the OMV as root if needed (and yes, I've tried using that approach to no avail).
Now, I just want to mention that I'm no newbie as I'm a retired enterprise Unix/Linux developer and sysadmin and a retired IT instructor and certified LPIC qualified. The only reason I mention these is to establish that this is NOT my first rodeo so to speak. And I am coming from my own Linux based NAS to the OMV.
For starters (newbies and oldies both) perhaps it would be beneficial to have a guide that describes how to define/establish a fairy open access policy to allow immediate access and then allow the admin to tighten things up over time. And this definitely would benefit anyone with a small personal Intranet and even SMB's. Just sayin'
So, I hope I'm not overstepping but can some experienced OMV user(s) please advise as to how one (and I'm sure others as well) can modify/establish access to the OMV to allow things to move forward?
Any pointers, ideas, suggestions, documents anyone can provide wild be greatly appreciated.
And, by the way, having installed, implemented, administered and used numerous "brand name commercial" NASes, I have got to say that I really appreciate the approach and completeness of the OMV product really is. Honestly, if my issue with access can be overcome, OMV will be my first recommendation to anyone else, private or commercial, looking for a NAS solution.
