I have several questions: My FW version is: 01.05.0000.03 (this is the newest correct?)
1. I am using this with 10.5 (Leopard OS X) and mounting using NFS. The permissions show (for instance):
drwxrwxrwx 11 jlinder jlinder 4096 Dec 10 20:40 iTunes
drwxrwxrwx 3 jlinder jlinder 4096 Mar 14 2008 Temporary Items
drwxrwxrwx 3 jlinder jlinder 4096 Mar 14 2008 Network Trash Folder
drwxrwxrwx 4 jlinder jlinder 4096 Mar 23 2008 Gene
-rwxrwxrwx 1 jlinder jlinder 4482 Feb 12 2008 Desktop DF
-rwxrwxrwx 1 jlinder jlinder 2048 Feb 12 2008 Desktop DB
-rwxrwxrwx 1 jlinder jlinder 6148 Dec 13 13:57 :2eDS_Store
drwxrwxrwx 2 jlinder jlinder 4096 Mar 14 2008 .fseventsd
drwxrwxrwx 2 root 499 4096 Aug 21 23:44 .RECYCLER
-rwxrwxrwx 1 jlinder jlinder 6148 Dec 7 21:55 .DS_Store
drwxrwxrwx 2 jlinder jlinder 4096 Feb 2 2008 .AppleDouble
drwxrwxrwx 2 jlinder jlinder 4096 Feb 2 2008 .AppleDesktop
drwxrwxrwx 2 jlinder jlinder 4096 Feb 2 2008 .AppleDB
with JLINDER being the logged in user on the NFS client.
My question is this: If I mount the shares using the finder (AFP://188.8.131.52) (with JLINDER username and p/w) from another machine I show nothing in any of the shares. (0 files in the finder window). Mounting the same shares using SMB from another mac (with JLINDER username and p/w) (SMB://184.108.40.206) shows the file structure and files with the ability to read the files BUT NOT WRITE them in most cases. JLINDER is listed as R/W in SMB and AFP sections of the web interface. I am assuming it is a permissions problem. (of course) but I am at a loss as how to fix it. There is about 2.5 TB of data that I cannot move to another storage medium and recopy cos i currently do not have the time to copy this data (at around 10/MB sec NFS speed) in order to delete the share and attempt to recreate it to get the correct permissions. I can CHOWN from the NFS box so if you tell me the chown command (ie: chown -r 777 *.*) and the user it is supposed to be I can perhaps fix this.
When I create a new directory in the NFS share (through the finder over NFS) it shows:
drwxr-xr-x 2 jlinder jlinder 4096 Dec 14 09:33 24
I then mount that share on another machine using SMB
I traverse to that directory and try to copy a file.
I get "The operation cannot continue because you do not have write permissions"
Why? The username is jlinder. I am logging in using SMB using the jlinder username. This should be valid, no? Is there a way to (system-wide) make the jlinder user r/w using every protocol. The "Sharing Setup" pane of the web interface does not seem to do this. It does not seem to re-write (chown for lack of a better word) existing files in the specified share.
My next question is the following: I have 4 WD Green Power drives ... 1 TB each in a Raid/5 config. I bought this unit under the assumption that I could, when available, simply unplug (1 drive at a time with this RAID/5 config) and plug in a 1.5 TB drive, let the system rebuild and have that extra space. I am reading (in this thread: ID: 859675 ) that may not be the case.
Next question: Under the NFS/Linux Sharing setup tab I see an "*" for certain shares. Anytime I wish to do that to a share I create I cannot. This is on an internal network and I am SURE of my internal security and wish to NFS mount from any of my internal machines. Is there an easier way (on, for instance, a 10.0.1.x network) to specify a netblock or range or just say ANY MACHINE CAN CONNECT AND HAVE FULL PERMISSIONS?
Last question: When I click on the "Firefly media server" (Version svn-1586) link on the protocol page and log in using my admin username and p/w (or even ns4300n and my admin password) I get the following error on the config page of firefly:
Your config file is not writable, you can not change anything using this webpage
ps: It shows the config file in the following location:
