Considering getting XigmaNAS or another such OS/NAS, but hesitant because of needing more info – so I’m hoping someone will answer my query here, please.

Details 1st:
I have a small home office & have been using Ubuntu Mate 18.04 as a file sharing box for about a year.

Every so often it seems to have a belly ache & file permissions sort of go nuts, resulting in crashed document editing, lockfiles & hassles.
There are only me & my assistant using this from our own desktop PCs to edit DOCX files, mostly.

Before this system I had an older win2000 box for the file storage & XP as the desktop PCs OS and…
File sharing was never any problem whatsoever – totally unrestricted.

The problems we have now make us wish for ‘the old days’ !!

My query, please:
Is there any way by which I can deploy & setup XigmaNAS to function with wide-open access to an entire partition with zero restrictions ??

Thanks for any help !!

Yes, there's (always) a way.
After you installed XigmaNAS, prepared the disks, created a pool and a dataset, setting up a share with anonymous access to this dataset is done in seconds.
1) XigmaNAS 12.1.0.4 amd64-embedded on a Dell T20 running in a VM on ESXi 6.7U3, 22GB out of 32GB ECC RAM, LSI 9300-8i IT mode in passthrough mode. Pool 1: 2x HGST 10TB, mirrored, L2ARC: Samsung 850 Pro; Pool 2: 1x Samsung 860 EVO 1TB, SLOG: Samsung SM883, services: Samba AD, CIFS/SMB, ftp, ctld, rsync, syncthing, zfs snapshots.
2) XigmaNAS 12.1.0.4 amd64-embedded on a Dell T20 running in a VM on ESXi 6.7U3, 8GB out of 32GB ECC RAM, IBM M1215 crossflashed, IT mode, passthrough mode, 2x HGST 10TB , services: rsync.

YAY !!
Thank You Very Much - this is VERY good news !!!


What I must store in that partition is literally thousands of document files, some dating back ~20 years.

Now I must ask:
With the other 2 PCs running Ubuntu Mate 18.04 - is there any simple way that I can use to make certain that ALL those files will inherit the same wide-open permissions ??

Thanks Again.
