I'm in the process of setting up a shared folder on my Raspberry Pi and am having a hard time figuring out the issue with some of my permissions. I set up my smb.conf file as such:
Comment = shared folder
Path = /mnt/content
read only = no
create mask = 0774
directory mask = 0774
valid users = @myadmingroup
I created a SMB user and added it to myadmingroup. I can access this folder but whenever I try to copy a file to the "content" directory it's saying I don't have permission. MacOS will first pop open a username/password dialog that says "Finder wants to copy 'filename.file'. Enter your password to allow this". I've tried entering my SMB credentials, as well as my Mac credentials but both fail. When I enter my SMB credentials, the dialog shakes like I entered the wrong username/password combo which leads me to think it wants my Mac credentials. When I enter those, it says "The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access some of the items".
Note: my username/passwords for my mac user and SMB user are different
Lastly, when I look at the permissions tab in the folder using VNC, it shows that the "Owner" and "Group" are both listed as PI. This also makes me think that Only PI has access to make changes to this directory. Can I just do a chmod on the folder and those settings will stick or do I need to make a change to smb.conf?
Thanks in advance!
