I have been looking around for a possible solution to this and am hoping that I can get some help.
I found an old thread that describes my issue pretty well, but I can't seem to get it to work (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,6889.0.html
). I had an issue where I had mounted a raid array as my home directory. I was told that that was a no-no. So I have since unmounted the raid array from /home (/home is just on the boot drive) the raid array is now just hanging out there. After a reboot, it was seen by linuxmce and mounted on /mnt/devices/149 and /home/public/data/other/Software Raid 5 . Once that was done the mp3 and video files sync'd fine, however, no symlink was created for the pictures directory in /home/public/data/pictures. There is only a symlink for flickr there. As an FYI the directory structure on the mounted raid was /mnt/devices/149/public/data/pictures.
So I tried deleting the raid array in web admin. Then ran sudo mdadm --detail --scan >> /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf as the uuid's were different in the mdadm.conf file. (As per this page: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Create_RAID_in_LMCE
) Once I did that, the web admin found the array, renumbered it device 163 and it started scanning the media on the device. The problem is there is still no symlink to /mnt/devices/163/public/data/pictures in /home/public/data/pictures and the images are not showing up in the orbiters. Also, none of the orbiters asked if I should use the new device, nor if it should use Linuxmce Directory structure or be public.
Long story short, in the 2008 post, there was a mention that permissions could be an issue,
Here is what the permissions are for /mnt/device/163/public:
drwxrwsr-x 3 myuser public 17 2012-08-30 07:31 public
drwxrwsr-x 22 myuser public 4096 2012-08-22 19:52 data
drwxrwsr-x 161 myuser public 8192 2012-08-30 20:27 pictures
Thoughts on how to resolve this?
