Permissions issue on macOS

Post by cheaters »

I have been trying for a week to correct this and now coming here as I have run out of ideas

I am recently upgraded to Sonoma
My volumes are on a remote Mac mini and I have them mounted locally.

This is the FileBot command:

Code: Select all

/Volumes/PlexServer_2/Plex/Series/
{ ~plex.year.derive { allOf { tags }{ vf }{ source } { "${ vcf}_${ hd }_${ bitdepth }_${ acf }" } { info.network } .joining('][', ' [',']') } }
{ if (dc > 1) '_'+di }
This is the error:
MOVE: Access Denied: /Volumes/PlexServer_2 (rwxr-xr-x 0:0 Volumes)
Volume permissions on the iMac (client) I am running FileBot on:

Code: Select all

Yes.

qBittorrent calls a script that copies the files to /PlexMedia_1/pTemp

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env bash

mkdir -p ~/Desktop/qBt_test

## logging stuff
{
   date; ps -p $PPID -o pid=,ucomm=; printf '\n';
} >> ~/Desktop/qBt_test/log.txt 2>&1

## log all input variables
for var in "$@"; do echo "$var"; done >> ~/Desktop/qBT_test/log.txt 2>&1

## save files here
save_path="/Volumes/PlexMedia_1/pTemp/"

## fb uses it's own parameter names for fb commands, "ut_label=%L" "ut_title=%N" "ut_dir=%D"...
ut_title="${1}"     # filename
ut_rpath="${5}"     # Root path - first torrent subdirectory path

## copy function
copy_torrent() {
    cp -nRX "$ut_rpath" "$save_path"
}
copy_torrent

## cd into copied files directory - if exists, output files tree to log; if not exists, exit
files_path="$save_path""$ut_title"
cd "$files_path" || exit

## logging stuff
{
    tree -fi -F --noreport; printf '\n';
} >> ~/Desktop/qBT_test/log.txt 2>&1

## for future use
Checking the permission on the files the script copied to PlexMedia_1, oddly only one has execute bit, regardless both fail to be renamed (moved) by FileBot resulting in the same error code:

Re: Permissions issue on macOS

Post by rednoah »

:idea: You show us /Volumes/PlexMedia_1 which look good at a glance:

Shell: Select all

ls -ale /Volumes/PlexMedia_1/pTemp/File2

:!: However, you are trying to move / copy files to /Volumes/PlexServer_2 which seems to not exist and cannot be created:

Error: Select all

SEVERE: COPY: Access Denied: /Volumes/PlexServer_2 (rwxr-xr-x 0:0 Volumes)

:!: FileBot naturally cannot create folders in /Volumes because it's a macOS system folder. You may need to update the output folder in your format whenever you mount a network volume since macOS may use a different mount mount (by adding a number to the folder name) if the default mount point is already taken.

Thanks for troubleshooting this with me.

I made a post on StackExchange asking for help on the permissions issue

I have made many changes while trying to fix this. Some of the information in the first posts on this post are no longer relevant. I assure you the paths do exist - I don't think that is what that error message is saying. It's saying there is a permissions issue.

I did run the move command again and logged output.

command :

Code: Select all

at iMacEth ~ logfile=$$.log
at iMacEth ~ mv /Volumes/PlexMedia_1/pTemp/Panorama.2023.10.23.At.War.Crisis.in.the.Middle.East  /Volumes/PlexMedia_2/pTemp  > $logfile 2>&1
65647.log : is empty so it is working without error.

While the shares are mounted I created a new folder to see what the permissions would be.

Code: Select all

at iMacEth ~ ls -ale /Volumes/PlexMedia_1/Plex/test 
total 64
drwxr-xr-x  1 john  staff  16384 Oct 26 20:24 .
drwxrwxrwx  1 john  staff  16384 Oct 26 20:24 ..
So the server share is not allowing an admin account to create new folders with permissions for all users while mounted by the client.

I tried as you suggested. Using a different path /Volumes/PlexMedia_1/Plex/... and ran into the exact same issue.

:idea: The mv command confirms that you can move files to /Volumes/PlexMedia_2/pTemp (notably not /Volumes/PlexMedia_2 nor /Volumes/PlexServer_2/Plex) but according to the format given above you want FileBot to create a new folder /Volumes/PlexMedia_2/Plex as this folder does not yet exist:

Format: Select all

/Volumes/PlexServer_2/Plex/Series/{~plex}

:idea: Note that absence of a Plex folder here:

Code: Select all

:?: Have you tried manually creating the target folder and setting permissions before calling filebot?

Poor editing :mrgreen: Sorry for the confusing post, I mixed different states in one post as I had saved a draft earlier, worked on it for a day, then came back to the draft (you said can't use root volume - so I added a new folder and same problem)

The directories do exist. Should I have unixfs=true set in preferences? I do.

When using my preset I get appropriate directories. I use the same paths for the mv command which completes without error.

:?: Have you tried manually creating the target folder and setting permissions before calling filebot?
Yes, did that as well. No matter.

Here is the current state of permissions... promise. Look at the parent directory. It seems no matter what I do that will not change. When I create new folders while on the client they inherit the parent directory permissions i.e. /Volumes

If users can't edit or authenticate files on a macOS hosted SMB
You might need to confirm a user's server information, connections, and directory details or adjust access.

Set a custom umask in macOS

Looking in /private/var/db/com.apple.xpc.launchd

Many of my applications are listed, FileBot is not.
Umask for user apps
Log in as an administrator and enter the following command in Terminal, replacing nnn with the umask value, such as 027 or 002. This command sets the user's umask for every app they open, including apps they access from the command line and new files that those apps create. After entering this command, you might need to restart your Mac.
