Unable to remove files through samba shared rclone mount

my setup is rclone 1.5.4 (beta) running in raspberrypi 3 docker, host os is ubuntu 20.04 64bit

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

    rclone --version
    rclone v1.54.0-beta.4792.e7fbdac8e
    - os/arch: linux/arm64
    - go version: go1.15.2

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

google drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount --allow-non-empty --allow-other \
      --dir-cache-time=1000h --cache-workers=5 \
      --buffer-size 256M --cache-chunk-size=8M \

      --use-mmap --max-read-ahead=512k \
      --poll-interval=15s \
      --volname=q --drive-use-trash --checkers=10 \
      --umask=000 -vv --vfs-cache-mode writes \

      --rc --rc-serve --rc-web-gui --rc-addr :5572 --rc-user abc --rc-pass 123 --rc-web-gui-no-open-browser --rc-web-gui-update

What happens when you try to remove stuff? Do you get an error?

Can you check the smb log to see if there is anything in there?

I didn't see anything out of the ordinary in the rclone log.

thanks for the reply, I'm trying to get the samba logs as you asked. funny thing is, I realized I can create file no problem but I can't modify it.

I have absolutely no idea wth is going on, but it seems to be working now. I did make changes but the changes are for getting the logs.

firstly, my /var/log was mounted on a usb drive, and the folder /var/log/samba wasn't created before, so I created the folder

in the smb.conf:
I added to the specific share:

vfs objects = full_audit
full_audit:prefix = %u|%I|%m|%S
full_audit:failure = none
full_audit:success = mkdir rmdir open read pread write pwrite sendfile rename unlink lock
full_audit:facility = local5
full_audit:priority = debug
local5.debug  -/var/log/samba/audit.log
log level = 0 vfs:2

I have rebooted /reloaded smbd a few times (via systemctl and smbcontrol)

======== update:
I didn't think it was relevant before, but I had vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr , in my smb.conf [global] before. now I have write permission after I override it with vfs objects = full_audit, which i suspect was the cause. I'll attach the whole file now. (this is after adding those audit lines at the end)

============ update2:
TimeMachine share has always been working

this is the log when I tried (and failed) to backup time machine to a rclone mount

this is related samba log:

Oct 02 14:08:21 pi3 smbd_audit[8124]: derek|**my ip emitted**|derek-work-mac|TimeMachineQzhu496|open|fail (Input/output error)|r|/media/smb/tm_qzhu496/tm/.com.apple.timemachine.supported-d229f2cb-8744-4295-b7e1-3ae47590e91

rclone log:

have you searched the forum, lots of posts.

for example, here is a link


The IO error should correspond to an ERROR in the rclone log, but I can't see it. Can you see an ERROR in your logs?
