Saving torrents to a network share (unraid) from Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I have an unraid server with a share setup, but my torrents constantly go in error "Error: Operation not supported" "Error: No such file or directory". Looking online it seems to be specific with permissions.

Im downloading to "/run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share:server=ryzen-svr.local,share=torrents"

Thats how its showing on the Ubuntu VM im using on unraid. I have Deluge set to download to this location. I believe this is what is causing the problem, but im not sure how to fix this. One workaround seems to be to download the torrents to a local folder, then have something to automatically move it on a set period to the network share, but I don't know how to do that. Anyone able to help?

Your hunch about permissions could well be right. But first things first: do your torrents get downloaded at all? If not, you need to make sure your torrent client has access to the storage location, by making it a member of the group that has access to that location. To solve that you need the usermod command on the commandline.

They do download, I really think its permissions based. How would I go about using usermod to give it access to that location?

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, long day at work, dead tired, not really engaging the brain ATM.

 

Assuming your server runs Linux or BSD, try


man usermod

HTH!

Thank you for providing that info.

 

I was actually able to get the binhex deluge vpn docker working with my PIA VPN and deluge controlled through WebUI, it is incredible. No permissions issues as it runs right on unraid and runs fantastic. One of the coolest computer things i've done. So much potential when I learn how to take advantage of other unraid stuff.
