I just upgraded to version 12 - katastrophy. Cannot access my shares anymore at all.

I had my shares set up but suddenly, I receive permission denied no matter what I do.

following issues:
1. All my data is in the root of the pool. With version 12, this is not suggested anymore. One should create a subdataset. Settings for permissions are greyed out. So how will I be able to access my old data and possibly transfer it to a new pool?

2. Due to beeing unable to change permissions on my existing dataset, I created a sub dataset for testing. I am able to set permissions on that but no matter what I do, it wont work.
Steps to reproduce:
Step 1: Create an account and set password

Step 2: Create Sub Dataset with share type smb

Step 3: Set dataset permissions in pool

Step 4: Create share on dataset

Step 5: Set permissions on share (Edit File System ACL)

Step 6: Try to authenticate to share:

Trying with guest access enabled:

Update. accessing is possible now. apparently was an issue with Windows.

Now the prime question: all my data is in mnt/BigData which is inaccessible. How do I move it to mnt/BigData/BigData?

I am having this same issue. You mentioned it was a problem with Windows? Do you remember how you fixed the problem?

/mnt/BigData shouldn't have been made inaccessible by upgrade unless the "root" account was being used to access the SMB server? What are the permissions on /mnt/BigData and /mnt/BigData/BigData? (use "getfacl <path>")
