    Ubuntu w LMS 7.92, problem mapping NAS drive

    I have installed Ubuntu 18:04.3 LTS and LMS 792 on a NUC

    My problem is that I cant map my nas smb://192.168.2.xx/music (login details) NAS is a Qnap 419p

    I can navigate to the NAS folder from my NUC with no problem, SMB/AFP and all other protocols work fine.


    I have moved from Vortexbox, but Linux is not my home turf.

    Please help

    You need to mount the NAS drive/folder in ubuntu. Normally, this is done by specifying the mount in a file called fstab which runs at boot.

    Do you use ubuntu server or desktop?

    Use sudo (preferred), or log in as root (not preferred!)

    Iĺd use NFS rather than samba if I were you.
    You enable it on an allowed IP address basis in the share permissions area of Qmultimedia and then on your Ubuntu client mount it via fstab. You might need to install nfsutils.

    OK, I think im there now.

    LMS is scanning my NAS, so mount worked. Lets see when i reboot if the mount sticks.

    Thanks for the advice, im on a very steep learning curve with Ubuntu/Linux

    Nope, it doesnt stick when I reboot.

    If i Manually switch to root and then mount it using " mount -t cifs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //192.168.2.30/music /media/NAS" that works and LMS Has access

    In fstab I have added that line in the last line, but apparently thats no enough????

    You need different syntax for fstab.

    Try this as the last line to use

    //192.168.2.30/music /media/NAS cifs username=xxx,password=xxx
