pvesm cifs permissions


Dec 27, 2021
I have a few shares setup now and I thought everything was working well until I tried to write to a share. I'm getting a permission denied.
I've tried creating the vault folder in the LXC before adding in the mount point to the container too.

pvesm add cifs vault --server --share vault --xxxx --password xxxx

LXC conf: mp0: /mnt/pve/vault,mp=/mnt/vault

Inside the LXC:
test:~# ls -la /mnt/vault
total 1
