    Persistent network mount possible?

    Using lms and local music is on windows share.
    Mounting is successful and I can drill down to the right folder.
    But after some time listening to internet radio I'm unable to play local music files.
    If I check folder in setup I'm unable to drill down the mounting point.
    Reboot pi does not help. Only thing is to first intentionally use the wrong password to mount, giving an error, and then remounting with correct password.
    After that it works some time, I guess until I'm using internet radio for a while and therefore not using the mounting point.
    I see an option field behind the mounting point but not having a clue what options are available. Perhaps one to persistently mount the cifs share?

    Given all the issues you are having, I suggest that the core problem lies in how your network is setup and run via the Fritzbox and the switch. No idea how to fix it though!

    Perhaps that's something. Didn't reboot the router perhaps that's the problem even if I'm only using the fritz box as gateway to internet. So only one Lan port in use. Banging my head to the wall about this 😠
    Will try reboot fritz box.

    Is the Windows machine configured not to go into sleep mode or power down the disks?

    Two things. What distro on the pi and how did you setup the cifs mount? Typically a cifs mount involves you storing the password in the fstab. If you do this it will always reconnect after any network glitch. If you don't do this, it will not reconnect after a reboot, but should still maintain the mount until you explicitly unmount it.

    My money is still on the Windows box being the issue. I have never experienced such an issue with pCP mounting a Linux based share on a NAS. The only caveat being that the NAS needs to be fully up and running before you boot the Pi.

    I agree. My music files are on a WD myCloud (that's it below next to my LMS/piCorePlayer sever). It's set to sleep after a period of non activity, it wakes no problem when there's a demand. It's no trouble whatsoever, it just works.

    With 3.21, there is now a retry loop on the network mount, to handle reboots from a power outage. I think it will try for about 2 minutes. Nas boxes normally startup pretty quick.
