Description

Additional users created within the HDA are unable to access the symlinks created by Greyhole. The only user who can access these seems to be the owner of the file.

I have ensured the additional user has permission to access, and after adding a file directly into the hda's shared folder, the other user is able to access that real file, but symlinks remain unaccessable.

-rwxrw-r-- 1 **** users 1467546336 2010-09-20 04:35 Defiance.avi
[****@******host SD Movies]$ ls -l Unthinkable.avi
lrwxrwxrwx 1 **** users 52 2010-09-03 15:40 Unthinkable.avi -> /mnt/data_disk_1/gh/Movies/SD Movies/Unthinkable.avi

Defiance.avi is available to additional users, Unthinkable.avi which is a symlink is not.

Here are the permissions for the folders which may be relevant

drwxr-xr-x  3 root root  4096 2010-09-03 15:28 /mnt
drwx------  5 **** users 4096 2010-09-02 17:37 /mnt/data_disk_1
drwxr-xr-x 17 root root  4096 2010-08-25 17:01 /mnt/data_disk_1/gh
drwxrwxr-x  4 **** users 4096 2010-08-14 12:17 /mnt/data_disk_1/gh/Movies
drwxrwxr-x 15 **** users 4096 2010-09-20 00:48 /mnt/data_disk_1/gh/Movies/SD Movies/

History

#1 Updated by cpg about 11 years ago

this mount point has all the permissions to anyone but the ** user locked down:

drwx------  5 **** users 4096 2010-09-02 17:37 /mnt/data_disk_1

this

chmod 755 /mnt/data_disk_1

may fix it
