Crashplan with Tonidoplug + Drobo (Samba mount) - Unable to write to directory?

Crashplan with Tonidoplug + Drobo (Samba mount) - Unable to write to directory?

I have a drobo at home attached to a Tonidoplug running on Ubuntu 9.04 (ARM) and I was trying to set up Crashplan on the Tonidoplug to back things up from various home PCs that I have. The Drobo is mounted as a samba device on the Tonidoplug.

I managed to set up the software however I kept getting permission denied error when trying to back up files.

What I know so far:

  1. The Crashplan process is running as root
  2. The root account has permission to write to the backup destination folder
  3. I can, use Drobo as a network drive, create and delete files from the destination folder from another PC in my home network.
  4. The folder for Crashplan is owned by root and has permission 777.

Anything else I am missing?

  • @zhuanyi Try enabling guest read/write to the backup destination and see if that works first of all.

    I'd mess around with the ACLs and do trial and error to see why it's giving permission errors.

    Never mind, you are talking about enable them in Samba...got it, I'll give it a try :)
