I upgraded my media server to a mini PC with an external 4-bay RAID DAS that is connected via USB. My mini PC is running Linux Mint and I set up my fstab like this:
I am running Plex on the mini PC and I can access my library and share it via Plex clients. I add new media from my Win10 PC on the same network, so I shared my mounted DAS with Win10 and it appears to work as read-only until I copy something or delete something from the share and then I lose the share. I’m guessing it’s a permissions problem that anyone more familiar with Linux could spot instantly, but I’d rather not have to copy 8TB of data back to the array if I play around with it and mess things up. Here are some screens of my setup on the Linux and Windows sides:
Note that my Linux machine does not show up under Network, only my old Windows machine called MEDIA.
After I make any changes to the shared drive from my Win10 PC, this is what happens to the shared drive:
Once I get everything working as expected, my goal is to run my PMS on a headless Ubuntu Server install, which seemed very easy until I added the USB RAID enclosure. I was going to build an entirely new media server, but since I’m only streaming locally and I already had the G4 Mini with an i5-8500t/32GB RAM and 1TB NVMe, I just added two 4-bay RAID enclosures: one for media and one for backup.
Any help getting my share to work in Win10?
