Recently I decided to recycle one of my old Macs into a home-file-sharing-server.
The Mac running Yosemite is connected to a router with Ethernet and is running PLEX server. A hard drive is also mounted. Everything workes fine. I can access the Mac with ARD, start and control downloads with remote Transmission, and Manage my Plex server... everything from work.
Sometimes I download from another Mac on my local network, aiming my server as a destination folder... never had a problem.
But when my wife tries the same from her computer, everything changes.
I Shared two folders. Created her an account and Added her account to the sharing permissions of theses two folders. So far so good, she can mount those two folders on her PC running W$7. She can open uTorrent. She can select my shared folders as destination folder for her downloads (after login-in).
But when she creates a new folder into the Shared ones, the Permissions are changing. With Cmd-I, I can see that I'm not even present in the permissions lists (red Wrong-way sign). I have to add myself into the permissions list on my own computer. Then comes the downloaded files. This one is always lock (lock box checked) and lock icon.
The result is that Plex cannot add the freshly downloaded files and that I have to interfere into a normally automated process which is pointless.
Don't need to add that I am using the "Apply these settings to all content" options... But its not working for New files. I'm using SMB setting for her to access my folders
I have look for answers but can't find one matching my needs.
Please give me a hint if you can,
ls -lon one of the shared folders in which she created a sub-folder? ACLs and permissions with Samba shares can get a little dodgy unless you are running OS X Server..
ls -lon the folder which contains the Shared Folder. I guess that's what you meant ? The result is
drwxr-xr-x+on staff. Is it helping in any way ? You mentioned OsX server. Do you mean that I wouldn't have this issue if I was running OsX Server and not Yosemite client ? I could definitely do that. But I guess their would still be some settings involve to trick SMB ?
