I’m not new to OSMC, Linux or Windows. That said, I’m sure there’s a lot I can learn.
I installed SaMBa on my OSMC by going into the Apps Add-Ons, selecting SaMBa and installing it. No problem there. I SSHed into the box and modified the smb.conf file (I know, not the right procedure and I should be using the local file). Regardless… the only thing I changed was the shares mount point to /media/VideoVol1 (my USB mounted video drive). I set the owner and group (chown osmc /media/VideoVol1, same for chgrp). I changed the mods to 777. It’s on my home network and wide open is fine with me.
The default, in SMB.CONF is security=user, for the share it’s browsable=yes and read only=no, valid user=osmc
I’ll attache the smb.conf below but it’s the default except for redirecting the included osmc share.
I have an ubuntu machine handling downloads. On that box I issue “sudo mount //192.168.1.162/osmc /mnt/OSMC -o username=osmc”. This works and I can browse the directory. However, when I try to write to it, I get permission denied.
Any ideas why? How can I troubleshoot this? Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Thanks in advance.
Here is an example of the output of an ls -al of the movies:

Here is the smb.conf file:
