    Installation issue on DSM 7 DS918+
    Hello,
    I have uninstalled the previous version of exiftool and I have tried to do a manual installation of the package
    I have an error : "invalid file format, please contact the developer" (translated from French)
    As a test, I have tried with a package from synology for DSM 7 and it works with no issue.
    Do you have any idea on how to solve this ?

    Thanks

        Hi Thorsten,
        I had the same problem.
        I solved it by
        - deinstalling exiftool
        - downloading the .spk file from this site
        - manual reinstalling the .spk on the disk station

      Hi,

      on DSM 6.1 I can not update the Exiftools to the current version, because a required package is missing. What does "required packages: Perlreport_url=http, //u88.n24.queensu.ca/exiftool/forum/" mean. Where do I get this package from?

      Cheers, Thorsten

        Thank you for your quick answer Sylvain! The thing is the command you mentioned is lacking a leading slash `/` in front of `usr`, so your path is relative and not absolute. If for any reason the working dir is not what you expect, depending on the synology packaging system, the `cd` command fails and the `find` command below will apply on the whole working dir. You have to enforce an absolute path (as mentioned in my previsou comment) to avoid any hazardous/critical side effects to the system.

        Regards,

        Sébastien

      I'll note your safer comand and test it in the next version ;-)
      thanks for your help

    Hello Sylvain,

    First of all, thank for your package! Now, the issue Ingo talked about on 2016/05/17 in the `common` script is very critical. A previous install of Exiftool messed up a lot of folder permissions because of that issue. I finally succeeded in fixing all the mayhem and patch the script to make it harmless again, however I can't and I won't update your last version until it is fixed in the package itself.

    The fix is pretty simple: replace `cd usr/bin/lib/Image` by 'cd /usr/bin/lib/Image`

    Or even safer, remove the line above and replace: `find . -type d | xargs chmod 1777` by `find /usr/bin/lib/Image -type d | xargs chmod 1777`.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sébastien

      To fix the pb, you have to perform a chmod on /tmp.
      You will have to repeat the operation after each reboot.

      If you are interested, I recompiled a spk where I fixed the messing command in file scripts\common.
      Tested OK on DSM 5.2

    After I updated my DS916+ to 6.0.2-8451 Update 1, this package causes some problem with DSM. After I installed this package, I couldn't copy/move/delete files through file station, says "The Operation failed". Also Download Station stopped working with same error message. I had to uninstall this package to solve these problems. Too bad because I was using exiftool with scheduled script and it was working pretty smooth. Any ideas to solve this situation?

    Hello Sylvain, in Version 10.15 spk there is a file named "common" in Folder scripts that is causing all Folders in synology chnaging rights to 1777. incorrect is the changedirectory command "cd /volume1/usr/bin/lib/Image". This Folder cannot be found on Synology, so you have to replace it with following command: "cd /usr/bin/lib/Image".
    The following line "find . -type d | xargs chmod 1777" will Change all permissions recursively.

    regards Ingo

      Hi, I just wanted to print an update to this matter. First I would like to warn all users that ExifTool 10.15-package does not seem to work on Synology DS415+ with DSM 6.0 installed. As written below the winbindd, ssh and sftp-service stopped working after the installation. As Martin suggested the tmp-folder could have had it's permissions changed from 1777 to 755. Reverting this did however not help for me. It appears that somehow two other folders had their permissions changed which caused all the problems. If services stop working check the /var/log-folder for clues. I did manage to log in to my diskstation with Telnet (with terminal service active) and was able to check the sshd.log-file where I saw that the /var/empty-folder had to generous permissions which caused SSH/SFTP to fail. Also the var/log/samba/log.winbindd-file explained that the /var/lib/samba/winbindd_privileged folder had 0755 permissions, but it should have 0750 to work. Changing the two folder permissions with chmod command (sudo chmod 750 winbindd_privileged and sudo chmod 755 empty/) and rebooting the diskstation was the solution. Now SSH and Windows AD-connection with Samba shares to AD-users is possible again.

    The changed /tmp permissions were the only defect I found in the exiftool package.
    /var/log has 755 on my Diskstation.
    /volume1/@tmp (777) seems to be used only by WebStation and PhotoStation.

      thank you for the quick reply. I am able to telnet the diskstation, however chmod the /tmp-folder doesn't help with winbindd, ssh and sftp not starting. Does the exiftool-package change anything regarding the /var/log-folders? or is it the /volume1/@tmp/-folder that's been changed?

    If you still have access to the DSM UI:
    - stop Exiftool
    - try to enable telnet under Control Panel --> Terminal & SNMP
    - telnet to the diskstation
    -chmod 1777 /tmp
    - reboot

    Hello, just and addition to the DSM 6-problem. I installed the 10.15-version on an synology ds415+ with DSM 6 - the exiftool package did something with folder permissions. Now neither winbindd, sftp and ssh services won't start! I tried to update to the latest DSM (6.0-7321 update 3) in hope that this would reset the folder permissions, but it ditn't help. Now I'm desparate to know of a solution what folder(s) permissions were altered, and if you could create the new package so that the already changed folders gets the correct permissions. Since I have no ssh or sftp I cannot login and change with chmod myself.
