Brief description of the problem
I updated to 3.9.2-57 Yesterday, I do not remember the previous version I was running but I haven’t updated in over a year so I assume it was quite old. After the update I couldn’t access any shares from windows so I did some investigating and found that Samba was disabled, When I try to turn Samba on I get the following error. I also tried to acess my data from SFTP and two shares are completely empty, One of them says it contains 800GB of data. (Note: As of writing this I double checked that the folder was empty, The /export/share folder is, however the /mnt2 seems to contain the missing data.)
I’m also getting Data tables warnings, “DataTables warning: table id=users-table - Cannot reinitialise DataTable. For more information about this error, please see http://datatables.net/tn/3” and “DataTables warning: table id=sftp-shares-table - Cannot reinitialise DataTable. For more information about this error, please see http://datatables.net/tn/3”.
Also this error when I try to edit a shares permissions "Unknown internal error doing a POST to /api/shares/6/acl "
I’m pretty new to linux and unfamilar with Rockstor so any help would be appreciated.
