    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.

    Hi Adrian,

    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!!

    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
    volume name:testvolume
    filesyste: fs1
    group owner:testgroup
    user permission: read & write
    group permission:read

    SAMBA setting

    workgroup name:workgroup

    shared volumes
    share name: testshare
    volume name: testvolume
    allow guest: checked
    browsable: check

    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
    \\\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 0.6.6

    Hi Mark,

    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.
