@mrmojococo Welcome to the Rockstor community forum.

You have not given any info here about the pool you created, but from from: NASPOOL1-R5 I’m wondering if you have used a parity raid level, for date or metadata, i.e. either btrfs-raid5 or 6. These default to read-only in our upstream base OS of openSUSE Leap.

If this is the case the that will be why the filesystem is then read-only:

And your options are to not use a party raid or to take a look at our following HowTo:

Where we give instructions on how to use more modern kernel and filesystem subsystems that are made available by openSUSE but with the provisos indicated in that howto.

Hope that helps.
