Fresh install Ubuntu Server 20.04.
cat /proc/filesystems shows exfat in the output. Not installed any other packages for exFAT as it should work from kernel.
Mounted 2 internal HDDs on in fstab as below
#INT-1TB-4K Internal HDD mount to /mnt/INT-1TB-4K UUID=0E7E-6579 /mnt/INT-1TB-4K exfat defaults, permissions 0 0 #INT-1TB-BAK Internal HDD mount to /mnt/INT-1TB-BAK UUID=3037-96B0 /mnt/INT-1TB-BAK exfat defaults, permissions 0 0
/mnt ls-all gives
exharris@plexserv:/mnt$ ls -all total 520 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jul 2 09:32 . drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Jul 2 05:15 .. drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 262144 Jul 3 03:49 INT-1TB-4K drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 262144 Jul 3 03:49 INT-1TB-BAK
I get permission denied errors in the terminal when trying to create files in these folders (unless I use 'sudo', of course). This is because the 'others' write bit is set to -.
sudo chmod -R 777 INT-1TB-4K from /mnt, I get no errors, but when doing ls -all again, nothing has changed.
This is causing me problems also as I have set these up as Samba shares and also cannot write to them from other machines.
I also tried sudo chmod -R o+w INT-1TB-4K - same thing happened.
What is going on? I do not want to use exfat utils and fuse.
