Problem with Couchpotato renamer don't work


Jan 6, 2020

I'm trying to setup Couchpotato on my new Freenas PC, but have some problems with moving and renaming files using CP's renamer feature.

If a place a movie in the folder that CP is looking for new movies(/mnt/.temp/Movies/) i get this error in the log:


The mounted dataset have "xenosis" and group "shared" as permissions..

The folder I've told CP to move completed movies to: /mnt/Movies/


I have created the group "shared" inside the jail and added the group to the user default user: couchpotato..
Inside couchpotato GUI I have no problems selecting the folders.. So I assume the GUI permissions are okay..

I have chown xenosis:shared all the folders and tried a few chmod permissions like 755 and 777 on the folders to:

root@couchpotato:/mnt # la -l
total 11
drwxr-xr-x+  5 1000  shared   5 Jan  4 02:25 ./
drwxr-xr-x  18 root  wheel   22 Jan  6 10:50 ../
drwxr-xr-x+  4 1000  shared   4 Jan  4 22:05 .temp/
drwxrwxrwx+  3 1000  shared   3 Jan  4 04:46 Movies/
drwxrwxrwx+  2 1000  shared   2 Jan  4 02:25 TV-Shows/

#### inside .temp folder ####

root@couchpotato:/mnt/.temp # la -l
total 2
drwxr-xr-x+ 4 1000  shared  4 Jan  4 22:05 ./
drwxr-xr-x+ 5 1000  shared  5 Jan  4 02:25 ../
drwxr-xr-x+ 3 1000  shared  3 Jan  6 13:17 Movies/
drwxr-xr-x+ 2 1000  shared  2 Jan  4 02:25 TV-Shows/

Does another user run the renamer function or why don't this work?

If I run ps aux | grep couchpoato inside the jail I get this:
root        87405  0.0  0.0  6732  2548 18  S+J  13:02   0:00.00 grep couchpoato

Sorry i'm bad at linux... But is this telling me that the user root is running couchpotato service?

And if I run: id couchpotato:
uid=950(couchpotato) gid=954(couchpotato) groups=954(couchpotato),1000(shared)

Don't know if this has anything to do with my problems.. But the movies placed in /mnt/.temp/Movies are transferred from a remote machine using Rsync and syncmd with these options:
RSYNC_OPTIONS="-avztu --chmod=Du=rwx,Dgo=rx,Fu=rw,Fgo=r --groupmap=xenosis:shared --out-format='[%t]--%n'"

If any additional info is need, please tell me and I will try to provide..

Can anyone tell me why this is not working?
