I set up a volume for software apps as follows;
Volume Name: Software
File System: FS01
User Owner: nasadmin
Group Owner: administrators
User Permission: read&write
Group Permission: read&write
Others Permissions: read
Then SAMBA as follows;
Share Name: Software
Volume Name: FS01/Software
Read Only – not checked
Allow Guest – checked
Browsable – checked
My PCs can see the files in the share but when they try and double click on an application install they get you don’t have permission to access \\nas01\software\standard\install.exe
Is this a limitation or am I doing something wrong? I don’t want family from changing the files on these folders.
Thanks!!January 11, 2017 at 9:52 pm #6053
can it be that the install tries to extract files into the samba share ?
if you are not using the same username & password on your computer , the access will be consider as other ( read according to your setup)
I will try to duplicate your setup, and see if I’m getting the same result.

On my Windows 10 PC I shared a folder called software with read only for everyone and can install the software without issues on my other Win7 and Win10 PCs.
I really like your EasyNAS and have migrated all my PC backups, software, and media over to it. Yours was the easiest to set up and configure verses FreeNAS or NAS4Free. Very impressed!!January 17, 2017 at 6:38 pm #7362
Thank you for your kind words.
there is a new version coming, after it’s out I will try to duplicate the env like yours with win10.

good day its my first time to setup easynas and im having difficulties in accessing the folders/volume shared in samba the setup is as follows:
Group: testgroup access permission all checked
User: testuser group users,tesgroup
user permission: read & write
share name: testshare
volume name: testvolume
allow guest: checked
Problem encountered in client side
if im going to access the testshare folder/volume it will ask for username and password after inputting the credentials the file explorer will alert saying
\\192.168.1.1\testshare is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have access permission.
but if im going to change the volume manager permission from
user permission: read & write
group:read & write
other:read & write
i can access the content of the folder/volume testshare and i can copy and paste items..
what i want is to have a individual folder/volume per user account how to do that what are the solutions
my easynas version is 0.6.6March 2, 2017 at 9:07 pm #9631
thank you for your question,
both the samba server (EasyNAS) and the windows system must have the same userid and password,
if one of them have different credentials it just won’t work.
for every user to have it’s own volume, you need to open for each account a volume with user permission read&write and the rest with none.
I hope it helps.
