Add SMB service shared files

Here we will introduce the addition of new features to sige7, which allows for file sharing among all devices in the local area network by attaching a large capacity hard drive to the Raspberry Pi, commonly known as an SMB server

Create a Directory

Create a directory in any path:

mkdir /opt/smb
sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/smb

Install smb Service

sudo apt update
sudo apt install samba -y

Create smb Password File

touch /etc/samba/smbpasswd

Add User and Set Password

sudo smbpasswd -a armsom

If you need to change your password, run sudo smbpasswd - a armsom again;

Add Configuration File

Add the Following Configuration in /etc/samba/smb.conf

vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
  comment = armsom
  path = /opt/smb
  writable = yes
  valid user =armsom
  available = yes
  create mask = 0777
  directory mask = 0777
  public = yes

Restart smb Service

sudo /etc/init.d/smbd restart

SMB Space Expansion

I have a 2TB hard drive that I plan to use as storage space for smb;

we need to ensure the power supply of the sige7, the power supply needs to reach 5V 3000mA, to ensure that the sige7will not crash after the high-capacity hard drive is connected through USB.

Create a new folder 2tb under /opt/smb/ as the mount point

sudo mkdir  /opt/smb/2tb
sudo chmod 777 -R  /opt/smb/2tb
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /opt/smb/2tb

Great, this looks useful.
