Cant' create server share in FlexRAID GUI
« on: March 07, 2013, 04:07:58 pm »
I can select the share, create the share name, type the user in and click the radio buttons, but the Add/Save button is greyed out.

I can set up the shares manually using Samba (well, in Webmin anyway), but I'd like to be able to do it in the FlexRAID GUI if possible as I suspect it will be less of a headache IF it works. Any clues what's going wrong?

It is not needed or available on Linux.
You must share directly using SAMBA.

Fair enough if it's not available but surely it's very much needed? Especially given the relative rigmarole of setting it up via Samba if you're a newbie!

Might be worth mentioning it somewhere in the wiki that that feature isn't available for Linux users so as not to confuse poor saps like me.

Indeed.
That will be something for the future.

Hi bluesky2006

That's why I used opensuse because they have a very good and easy gui for samba. Otherwise there is webmin which also should have some gui for the samba functions

Hi b-earl,

I use webmin already actually, but as a it of a noob it can feel a bit like a case of not seeing the wood for the trees in there! I can make the shares fine but I feel like I have to so a lot of fiddling to sort out the permissions side of things. Would be great if there was an easier system for sorting that! Guess that's the nature of Linux though - woudln't be so fascinating to use if it was easier!
