I find it hard to believe sometimes that I run into problems with LInux, but
usually Webmin will gently guide me through the process and make things OK.
This is a little off topic for this list, but I hope someone can give me a
quick nudge in the right direction.
We have a Thecus N5400 that was mounted by a Mac and tons of data was saved
to it. No problem so far except they want to write-protect the data for
previous years in yearly folders. They can make the change to the top level
folders through the Thecus' web admin pages, but it does not propagate
downwards. So I tried to mount this using Webmin on my Centos 3.7 box as an
smbfs type mount. All I see are some strange files like .Appledb blah and a
few index-looking type files and I can't change anything.
Just to make it a little more interesting, I tried the Apple hfs file system
mount, but got an error indicating my kernel did not support this type of
mount. So I have a real strange feeling that it's just the way it is from
one of those Macs.
Does anyone have a clue how to get around this. Might an NFS mount work? The
Thecus has that ability, but I'm fairly certain it will show the same type
Thanks for any help, ideas, or patience
