Also tried with user and pwd field set to 1, also disabled anonymous access on the router and added real user and pwd to pCP's mount line. Still the same.
    I had pCP 6,1 and now there is 7.0 ! so I redowloaded, reFlashed and dit all configuration, then I installed cifs-utils from the extensions that are now available.. and I eventually got it mounted! now it's visible in LMS and everything seems to work!

    [INFO] mount -v -t cifs -o credentials=/home/tc/.cifs.cred,vers=2.0,uid=1001,gid=50 //10.0.0.1/"sda2" /mnt/Musica

    [ INFO ] Disk Mounted Successfully.

    Thanks everybody! thet was really helpful!

    now do you see any problem in having gifs-utils installed? would that lower PCP performance?

    BTW, when I configure SAMBA on my ASUS router to allow guest login (anonymous access), I see the volume name (sda2 in the example above) as share name in Windows (\\router\volume). But when I disable guest login, the volume name is no longer visible and I see all the folders in the volume as shares in Windows (\\router\folder1, \\router\folder2,...).

    Excellent, well done.

    Can't help with the gifs-utils question.

    Having cifs-utils installed is no big deal. There is no daemon running because of it. The only thing is that there are quite a few dependencies. A good 15-20 extra extensions over what you would have on a simple install. It will use a slight bit more ram, and will take an extra few seconds during bootup.

    Code:
    cifs-utils.tcz
       krb5.tcz
          keyutils.tcz
          openssl.tcz
             ca-certificates.tcz
       libcap-ng.tcz
       samba4-lib.tcz
          gamin.tcz
          gnutls.tcz
             libidn2.tcz
                libunistring.tcz
             unbound.tcz
                expat2.tcz
                openssl.tcz
                   ca-certificates.tcz
             nettle.tcz
                gmp.tcz
             p11-kit.tcz
                libtasn1.tcz
          libacl.tcz
             libattr.tcz
          libcap.tcz
          jansson.tcz
          icu.tcz

    mmh... doesn't sound good but I suppose I have no choice, as if disinstall it I won't be able to mount the disk.. or once it is mounted I can disinstall it..? but then what happens once you reboot, I suppose the disk has to me mounted at each reboot of the Pi? Am I right?

    by the way (sorry I don't want to open another thread, I will if necessary..) but I realized just now that when I go to the LMS and try to play a song, the Squeezelite player stops running; I go to PcP to restart, go back to LMS the player is there I relaunch the song and it stops again.. does that has something to so with cifs-utils?

    If you are trying to play an alac file, that has been fixed. Do a full update on squeezelite....button is near the top of the main pCP web page.

    If I it is not an alac file, or updating doesnĺt solve your problem...start a new thread with details.

    Thank you Paul; well I did a full update; and the player now stays, however I can't hear nothing.. I see the tune playing but can't hear any sound..

    I will investigate.

    ZFS filesystem on FreeNAS/TrueNAS

    Just in case it helps anyone else...
    I've been migrating away from a Vortexbox based solution to PcP with LMS and my music files on a home-built NAS.
    The NAS software is TrueNAS (was FreeNAS) and it uses ZFS as the filesystem.
    Couldn't get PcP to mount the TrueNAS Samba share until I installed cifs-utils.tcz. Now it works beautifully!
    thanks
