Plex 11.3 Mountpoint problems


Mar 26, 2018

So i have tried for a couple of days now to fix this problem.
i never had any issues in 11.2 but i just can't get my head arround this problem.

I install Plex plugin and yes i have tryed both versions.
i have read online that the Plex plugin creates a user in freenas.

no it does not :-(

anyways. my problem is the ACL permissions.
i can't seem to get it right for Plex.
when i mount the Media dataset or a folder in the Dataset in to root/media the media folder dissapears.
yes it dissapeasr because of permissions but how the .... do i get this to work.?

i can't find any good guides online
can someone point me in the right direction

if all this is due to the plex user not being created by the plugin how do i create one my self ? password id and so on.
yes i have tryed but it don't work

You will find this thread useful for your understanding of what's going on. Essentially, you need to create a Plex user with the UID/GID 972 with at least read access to your media outside the jail.
