Hi, I'm quite advanced with Linux and believe this to be a bug.
I stopped plexmediaserver.
Copied the Media folder to /home/username/Media
Moved the Media folder to Media_OLD
Symlinked to the new Media location, The application should not be able to tell the difference unless specifically testing for a symlink and not file access.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Aug 4 13:38 Media -> /home/redacted/Media
Demonstrating every file is owned by plex
root@redacted:/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Media# find . ! -uid 119
root@redacted:/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Media#
All files kept their permissions/octals (owned by plex) I experience no other errors.
Except now every single day, Plex tells me the server is unclaimed. I claim it, Same thing again the next day. For some reason it seems to be happening each day which could not be a local OS issue. It used to tell me an unclaimed server existed but I deleted them a few times and now stopped doing it.
Everything works. Except this.
