I am not able to refresh my snaps and the refreshing process ends with a permission denied error.
Copy snap “rdplot” data (cannot copy “/home/user1/snap/rdplot/18” to “/home/user1/snap/rdplot/20”: failed to copy all: “cp: cannot create directory ‘/home/user1/snap/rdplot/20’: Permission denied” (1))
/home is a NFS drive and home directories are /home/$USER
Obviously I am dealing with a multiuser system.
Actually, I do not quite understand why the refreshing process needs to modify a users homedir. I think the permission error is related to the fact that not all machines have root-access to the NFS share but even if all the data was on a local drive I do not really want an application write to any users homedir.
Is it a bug or a feautre and how can I get around that? I want to run snap refresh nightly on every machine and all snaps should be up-to-date at any point in time. Is that possible?
