I have added a 4TB HDD to my server for /plex and the permissions are user.
I added another 4TB HDD to my server which I partitioned in half, 2TB for /timemachine and 2TB for /general. But the permissions for these two partitions are root and I cannot seem to change the permissions.
I don’t know how I managed to get /plex to have user permissions or whether that was the default ? Does /timemachine and /general have root permissions because they are partitions ?
I would like to access /plex and /timemachine and /general over the network using my Mac Book Pro, but at the moment the Mac can only see /home (and its sub-folders).
How do I configure /plex and /timemachine and /general so that the Mac can see these folders ?
When I intially created /plex I used Disks in Ububtu Desktop to mount the HDD, but this only had root permissions. So I edited fstab so that the drives are mounted at boot without restrictions on the permissions and this worked.
I did the same for /timemachine and /general but for some reason the permissions are root. I have played around with chmod to try and change the permissions but it hasn’t worked.
Below is my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
