hey so the admin console, multi-tenant page, i ran the below command
create TMRGlobal.com /usr/tenantstores/TMRGlobal
this i believe is as per the details in Alfresco help on the topic, i agree it's likely a permissions issue, however this is a fresh out of the box VM and linux is not my jam so i'm guessing i can resolve by setting the correct values for permissions with some sort of CLI based update or i have used the wrong multi-tenant instruction.
Create empty tenant. By default the tenant will be enabled. It will have an admin
user called "admin@<tenant domain>" with supplied admin password. All users
that the admin creates, will login using "<username>@<tenant domain>".
The root of the contentstore directory can be optionally specified, otherwise
it will default to the repository default root contentstore (as specified by
the dir.contentstore property). The default workflows will also be bootstrapped.
Examples: create zzz.com l3tm31n /usr/tenantstores/zzz
create yyy.zzz.com g00dby3 /usr/tenantstores/yyy.zzz
create myorg h3ll0
