Well I told my wife that from now on I identify myself as a lesbian.
Thanks will check it.
Found the language setting.
Thanks! This worked perfectly, removing the non-removable disk.
Thanks, it's always the last place where I did not check.
Thanks a lot!
I can't seem to find the changelog to see what has been updated.
Today I updated OMV6 to the latest, but what has been changed or fixed?
I have 3 questions.
1. How do I get rid of the missing storage? see the image.
It seems to be referenced to somewhere but i can't find it. And no way in the ui to get rid of it.
2. How to set the language back to english, I'm dutch but I like to keep it in english as then I don't have to translate again for what I'm searching. Somehow it jumped to dutch partly.
3. I saw in a thread to enable netbios as this could help connecting from windows to the raspi nas. I now have only one windows machine succeeded to get access, but I like 2 other windows machines to get access too. Other things I've tried, similar as on the first machine seems not to work. It's always access denied, while the rights are ok.
Note that on the first machine I only got access with exfat, while actually it should be ext4. (exact same rights)
Thanks a lot!
You changed permissions at the filesystem level? What permission level are you selecting when creating the shared folder?
I Used everyone:Read/Write when creating the shared folder, then for that share I tried with and without Read/Write for a user,
at SMB: Guests allowed (which with this exFAT I now have at Public No) Inherit permissions, Extended attributes and DOS attributes,
then at Users Read/Write (also tried without)
I tried several settings for which logically one would expect to be able to have access to the shared folder.
I understand, but I tried it and it refused.
Yes you might be correct in that.
Well at least the other 2 users seem not to be able to get into the folders of the other.
As I'm now only using this in-house, no access from internet, it is good for me. And I don't have a solution for why it don't work with EXT4 which I preference.
The question for me is, as the rasp is a Linux system and controls the access, why is EXT4 not allowing a user access and exFAT does while according to the settings the rights are similar?
For test I formatted a 4GB usbstick as FAT32.
Mounted it in OMV -->created share-->created SMB-->created 2 shared folders on it-->Created testuser-->No access
But! The existing Windows user with the same user name as in win10 now does get access to the USBstick after giving read/write rights.
So now I'm going to try with the USB HDD to reformat it as FAT32 and see if the Windows User will now also get access.
Will check on Linux and Macos too.
***edit*** still testing with the temporary USBstick
- can connect on Linux as same user as on win10 and can edit a simple text file and save it
- can connect on Macos as same user as on Windows and read write, and also as after disconnect, connect as another user "testuser"and have full access to the share. I can not connect as another "testuser" to the share allthough it has access according the given rights on Win10.
Now will try it with the usb HDD.
Well the USB HDD could not be formatted as FAT32 but as exFAT. So I did not choose the standard NTFS on win10.
And this just works. I'm happy, it costed a few days but this works.
EXT4 does not work for me on Rasp4 8GB with external 1TB USB HDD, exFAT does work.
I noticed that now there is no option to set ACL rights when selecting the shared folder in OMV. But this is ok.
Next to the solution in the 2nd edit, I just tried on another Win10 laptop and then I can't get access for another user, but I think the solutions on these links here below have to be implemented on win10. On my PC I already did that before the exfat solution and it was not enough before I tried exFAT.
It's really strange right.
Thanks so far, I'll keep on searching for a while for an answer.
I really don't know why you did all of that. All you had to do is change the user's password (even if to the same password) assuming samba was enabled. Here is the way I set up samba when I have to use it.
That I did to see if adding to the roots group would benefit from the rights.
I removed all users and SMB share, I tried to remove the Storage share folder which it refused. The bin was not accessible. Then wiped it within OMV. I can't seem to create a new drive or format it within OMV. Strange is the old fotos folder is still there, can't remove it. it's just a db entry I guess.
create sharedfolder on new filesystem
create samba share using new sharedfolder
give user permissions to sharedfolder
Then I reformatted the HDD on Linux as EXT4.
Then again exactly according your list above did the steps. Applying each step.
I saw that when rights are given to the user at the Storage shared folder, these rights become the same at the User settings.
Entered the share on Win10, windows asks for the password for the user. It seems it accepts it as I get no error.
I see the new share folder called Photos. Double click it... no access
1st I used the plugin to reset all rights.
I removed the user and removed the SMB and disabled samba.
I tried to remove the share on the disk but the possibility came not available.
Then re-created the SMB share, after this I recreated the user. (of course I apply every step)
I did not set rights at the user.
With or without read/Write rights on the Storage Share, no access is given. There is a password requested although upfront windows says the username or password is not correct, before you enter anything.
Next I rebooted the rpi via the reboot function in OMV. Still no go.
this stays the same:
ls -lah /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-a793b25f-f412-44c5-9540-c1f209cf8008/Fotos
drwxrwsrwx 2 root users 4.0K Sep 5 21:33 .
drwx------ 6 jmb jmb 4.0K Sep 8 18:32 ..

Thanks a lot for your suggestions.
So the sequence is important when you create the user and when creating the SMB share? If so can one not add a user after an SMB share is created?
I will try the resetperms plugin as mentioned.
I've created the whole drive as a single partition as EXT4 via my Linux Ubuntu setup which is on my PC (it's a triple boot win10/Linux/MacOS),
because within OMV 6 I could not create or format it. But creating the shared on the HDD is working.
The pi is on rasp 64 bit Lite.
There are no files yet in the share, only the folder which was created as share. No access yet so I can't put a file on it yet.
Will report back
I went thru all that and tried several settings. creating a new share etc.
Placing user under group root also just to try.
Guest, only, guest allowed, no guest etc
Adjusted user so the username and password is equal to the windows one. This makes me asking why are there options to to enable access to everyone, because that should working also I guess as a start, before starting limiting others to certain shares.
I would tend to think that placing a user in a group, and that group has access to a share, that would be enough to get access, right?
So I'm not getting it, if I do set or do not set rights to the share or the user, access is not given.
By the way I'm using a USB HDD Toshiba 1TB, but that should not be an issue I assume.
Thanks for your help.
It seems it's not only a widows issue, I get also not access via Linux or Macos.
What can I do?
Thanks for any help.
I followed these 2 url with suggestions, enabling smb(was enabled), adding key to register etc.
unfortunately to no avail. depending on some settings one might get the option to enter a password, but that does not work either. Allowing guests should actually give access.
Hoping that someone knows what to do.
Thanks for any suggestion.
