First the great news. couldnt wait to try nfs. SUCCESS!
heres showmount -e output:
(My pogoplug IP is 192.168.0.8. i'm assuming 192.168.0.0/8 is correct?)
Two littles notes for others following along (And maybe you could add it to your original post to me: I had to do pacman -Sy nfs-utils instead of pacman -sy nfs-utils
Also along with "systemctl start rpc-idmapd rpc-mountd" i also did "systemctl enable rpc-idmapd rpc-mountd" to ensure it starts on boot (See i'm learning!)
Also, does NFS use the same username/passwords i set up initially when doing samba ("adduser pcguest"), or there a different combination i use?
As per your post heres my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
# <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
UUID="D60071C60071ADDD" /mnt/Disk1 ntfs defaults 0 0
UUID="24D89226D891F670" /mnt/Disk2 ntfs defaults 0 0
UUID="F8E841F4E841B224" /mnt/Disk3 ntfs defaults 0 0
UUID="101CE00C1CDFEAAC" /mnt/Disk4 ntfs defaults 0 0
(Just incase you're wondering i've consistently used Disk1,2,3,4 everywhere rather than DISK1,2,3,4 since i know with linux caps makes a difference)
Post /etc/fstab please.
My mistake, any drive that's in equal size or bigger is ok.
There is no restore process. When one fails, you simply power it down, swap the drive, and power it back on.
For each share section in /etc/samba/smb.conf you can specify a list of users have the permission to read and a list of users have the permission to write. You can also use @group. You can read all about it here
Just don't use guest access since the security is set to user in smb.conf. Any authentication is better than no authentication.
Notes are great for me as they significantly reduce the configuration and troubleshooting time even it's outdated. I still have notes on floppy disks when I was messing around freebsd back in 98'.
