I am trying to set up backing up of mybook live over NFS. The NFS itself seems to be working fine, I mounted all the shares on my Linux machine. On mybook I have a few users: tony, user2, user3…
Also I have ssh access to mybook and I created a Linux user pibackup and I wanted this pibackup to have access to all shares. I made pibackup's primary group to be "share", but somehow I still get "permission denied" for pibackup, even though the Linux permissions clearly should allow group share to access the shares directories. I want to emphasize that the "permission denied" happens locally on mybook without any NFS connecitons. So it is not a problem of NFS, but rather some weird Linux permissions issue that I cannot understand.
So I am wondering, how to make user pibackup to be able to access the shares? And also I am curious, how did they block access?
To clarify my problem, here is some output from mybook live:
$ whoami pibackup $ id uid=1100(pibackup) gid=1000(share) groups=1000(share) $ pwd /shares $ ls -ld tony/ drwxrwxr-x 15 nobody share 65536 Jan 12 18:50 tony/ $ getfacl tony file: tony owner: nobody group: share user::rwx group::rwx other::r-x $ ls tony/ ls: cannot open directory tony/: Permission denied
