I 've been trying to setup a Samba Share in FreeNAS -11.2-U7 for a couple of days now, and no matter what parameters I use both server side or client side (Xubuntu 18.04), can’t get it to work like I expect.
This share is based on a dataset that includes all my files for Plex. It has been mounted as a mount point to the Plex jail. I want to be able to copy files from the client to the share and have them have 0777 permissions, in order for the Plex Server to be able to scan its libraries.
But despite everything I tried, each new file or folder, gets 770 permissions and thus the Plex user in the jail does not scan it. I’ve tried file_mask and directory_mask, force create, both server side and client side options (fstab). The dataset permissions are 777 recursively applied.
It must be something simple that I miss. Any ideas?
