I have a question to the use of Kiln software with deviating blockchain source path. I bought a new SSD and installed it as an additional hard drive -> copied Tezos blockchain there In /var/lib a new symbol link was created to the new directory. Rights are the same as /var/lib/kiln/ Run: "failed", "permission denied". All rights are exactly the same as in old directory. What can be the reason? My guesses are: - it is linked to the inode - Kiln cannot work with symbol links. Any help or hints are appreciated.

If you didn't figure this out: You can actually change the directory that kiln uses for the tezos node data. It's a bit odd that the symlinks break things, but you ought to be able to not need a symlink.
