After upgrading my Synology RS819 to DSM 7.0, I just cannot seem to get Syncthing (the SynoCommunity version, build 1.17.0-22) working. I keep getting the following permission errors:
2021-10-01 16:26:34: Failed to create folder root directory stat /volume1/Photos/Pictures: permission denied 2021-10-01 16:26:34: Error on folder "oracles - photos" (<folderid>): stat /volume1/Photos/Pictures: permission denied 2021-10-01 16:26:48: Loading ignores: lstat /volume1/Photos/Pictures/.stignore: permission denied 2021-10-01 16:26:48: Failed to create folder root directory stat /volume1/Photos/Pictures: permission denied 2021-10-01 16:26:48: Error on folder "oracles - photos" (<folderid>): stat /volume1/Photos/Pictures: permission denied
where folderid is replaced with the syncthing folder id.
I have been scouring the internet for answers and have come up empty handed. I have confirmed that all of the users I’ve created in the DSM GUI have access to the syncthing group and that the syncthing group has read/write access to the folders I want to share. I’ve granted the users group access to syncthing and the folders it needs access to. I’ve searched for this mythical “sc-syncthing” user and I cannot find it, apart from going to etc/passwd via ssh and finding out that it exists but it is in the nologin folder. It’s not visible in the Users or Groups GUI at all.
Does the SynoCommunity edition of Syncthing still run as the sc-syncthing user? If so, then why can’t I get to it apart from digging deep into the command line (something I’m not terribly comfortable doing)? If not, what’s going on here?
