I just found this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...le_Permissions
and am investigating. But, in the mean time any input is appreciated.
I decided to upgrade to 188.8.131.52 the other day and went with a fresh install on my 3.0 thumb drive. I then auto imported my only volume. I added the unix share as nobody for both mapalls. Auth network 192.168.1.0/24 and auth ip 192.168.1.18 the linux box. When I mounted the share in Linux Mint 13 everything was there but I had no access to the files as they were added from various machines and had various owners. My bright idea was to chmod the /mnt/media folder to 766 ( chmod -R 766 /mnt/media ) in an effort to grant read and write permissions to any machine. Bad idea. Now when I mount the share the top level folders are there but the contents are blank. ssh into the nas and navigate to /mnt/media then ls -l returns the following:
Shell as root /mnt/media/ ls -a and -l returns:
Mounted in Linux: these are the top level folders
Freenas 184.108.40.206 volume
I know the data is there but I need to fix the permissions.
User Travis no longer exists. I believe user 1002 was user Travis. User travis is the user name of the linux box. I think what I need to do is chown the non system directories to a current user or a system user but, that's as far as I get.
I have RTFM and printed it for reference but there is not a bad idea chapter. I am wary of proceeding without input from the community. I know there are other post covering the same issue but they didn't have much for me.
I've read through this several times as well.
Any input is appreciated....
