Storage pool mounts as root - Cannot share folder over SAMBA
« on: October 14, 2017, 03:57:19 am »
Hi,
I hope that someone can help me out with this problem.
I am running Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS and I have successfully installed flexraid and created a storage pool that works locally on the Linux Environment. The problem is that I cannot share this folder over samba because every time the pool is started it is created with root privileges. This cannot be changed. I have searched for Days and it’s very frustrating. I come across this thread: http://forum.flexraid.com/index.php/topic,3350.msg22573.html#msg22573
I noticed that I did exactly the same but without any luck. In my case my pool was already located correctly  (\media\ice\Storage) but it still doesn’t work. The storage pool is always created with root privileges.
There is nothing wrong with my samba network. My other folders that doesn’t belong to the pool can be shared over samba just fine but those folders are created by me. What is wrong here?
Appreciate any kind of help.
BR
