Hi,

Just for grins I built a MD profile, was discovered by the router but failed Diskless_Setup.sh.

I might play with this, next week, if I get some time.

Cheers.

Hi,

Hi,

On initial install I get waiting for network, waiting 60 more seconds and booting without a full network.

This time I tried physically reversing ethernet cables and trying again but it doesn't matter what physical ethernet wiring is.

Same messaging for network occurs. 

During initial software load I did see a message about /etc/ddclient.conf line 8 Invalid value for keyword 'Login'.

systemd-udevd failed to execute messages were generated but AVWizard did run.

On restart of AVWizard, after A/V parameters selected a bunch of systemd-udevd were generated but ConfirmDependencies build did run.

ifconfig was checked and eth1 & lo was present but no eth0.  Eth1 was dcerouter ip.

LinuxMCE install messages appeared but No Sarah/House Setup wizard.  Rebooted.

No networking messages, ubuntu splash screen sat there.  Eventually LinuxMCE install messages were generated with orbiter screens generated.  Good sign.

Ifconfig showed eth0, eth1 and lo.  No issues with eth0 aliases.

Setup wizard ran without Sarah A/V.

Basically nouveau drivers, no Flickr photos.

General Info Plugin Download Software retried -X3- CIFS Utils (old Samba Utils), Pluto MythTV Plugin, asterisk-perl, Linphone library, EXIF/IPTC metedata manipulation library, Qt GUI Library MT v3, Debian Font Manager, MNG Library, Pluto MythTV Player.

Confirm Dependencies log showed the usual suspects (CIFS Utils (old Samba Utils), Pluto MythTV Plugin, asterisk-perl, Linphone library, EXIF/IPTC metedata manipulation library, Qt GUI Library MT v3, Debian Font Manager, MNG Library, Pluto MythTV Player).

Did update/upgrade with errors for pluto-mythtv-player and plugin.

Edited lanman client change in smb.conf and rebooted.

Powered up NAS.  NAS discovered.  Volumes detected.  UpdateMedia discovering content albeit slowly due to the usual suspects.

The usual suspects tried to download during NAS software discovery - X3.  A little annoying but understandable.

Cheers.

Hi,

Fill in the missing fields.  Sorry if I was unclear.  I was running late for work when I posted.

Hi,

Core/Hybrid with nvidia drivers, Sarah present, no Flickr photos, NAS detected username/password entered - media not updated.

Checked webadmin had to manually add fields to Device #33 File Server #1837 -username/password and check Password Required box.

Manually add fields to Device #34 Volume_1 Windows Share #1768 - username/password, Filesystem, checked read only and Online.

Manually add fields to Device #35 Volume_2 Windows Share # 1768 - Filesystem, checked read only and Online.

Reboot and have to manually check Online for both drives.

In Media Files Sync added LinuxMCE Video Files to get check for exist both on disk and database - did resynch and nothing.

Rebooted, rechecked Online - no media being updated.

Tried service smbd restart - nothing.

Cheers

Hi,

Basically no Sarah, nouveau drivers, no Flickr photos, eth0:1 alias again so alias down eth1 up with 192.168.80.1 ip address, did update/upgrade with errors for pluto-mythtv-player and plugin.

Confirm Dependencies log shows CIFS Utils (old Samba Utils), Pluto MythTV Plugin, asterisk-perl, Linphone library, EXIF/IPTC metedata manipulation library, QT GUI Library MT V3, Debian Font Manager, MNG Library, Pluto MythTV Player.

Did lanman client change in smb.conf and service restart then powered up NAS.  NAS has yet to be discovered.

Cheers.

Great find!

Thanks Dennis!

Hi,

I will re-install and take notes (i.e. pay better attention).

Might take me a few days to complete.

Cheers

Hi,

My D-link NAS is based on a condensed version of Debian, so it's linux to linux.

I was wondering if the 220 was maybe some kinda embedded Windows variant.

So I tried this.

I run two networks in the house - one for the family and their Windows machines and one for LMCE.

I reconfigured the network to include the family side ( just switching a BIX block RJ45 x-connect to the LMCE switching hub).

I powered up my wife's XP box.

No changes to existing smb.conf, her PC has Windows shares and is in the LINUXMCE workgroup.

Took 3-5 minutes but the PC hard drive was detected as a File Server.

On her PC My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>Linuxmce>Dcerouter was displayed.

I tried to log into dcerouter but couldn't connect but I don't really care @ this point because I just wanted to be seen form the LMCE side.

On 12.04 to talk to a WIN7 box in the smb.conf global section you need...

follow symlinks = yes


Cheers.


p.s.  If you are somewhere around the St. Lawrence valley area in Ontario, Canada a roadtrip would be possible - a cold, frosty milk would be nice ;)

Hi,

I saw this part of a review on CNET...

The server comes with a discovery software utility, making setting up the BlackArmor a simple task. Once set up, the utility assists in finding the NAS server on the network and allows you to map network drives to its two default share folders, "public" and "download." Fortunately, no software is needed to access the NAS, as it fully supports the SMB protocol and can be easily found using Windows Explorer.

Can you easily find the NAS via Windows Explorer?

Then can you easily find the NAS under that Windows "other networks or network neighbourhood" or under my computer whatever?

If you can see it as part of the network neighbourhood the I don't understand why LMCE couldn't see it.

There should not be any other parameters that would be needed in 10.04 global section. 

Unless, there is one different thing you might need for connecting to a Windows OS box.  All the other necessary fields are in the global section.

I can't remember off the top off my head...

I'll look through my notes.


Cheers

Hi,

Does webadmin show anything under device tree?

Even partially?

I understand it's not detected, so nothing should be there, but... weird.

Cheers.

Hi,

I have a 2 bay NAS.  One drive was setup without a password and one with.

At this point I am curious.  Was your NAS detected at all?  Mine was, no problem.

UpdateMedia ran immediately and discovered my videos.

If your NAS wasn't discovered at all, try cabling, I've had some weird issues happen with my ethernet cables.

Does ifconfig show eth assignments correctly?  Can you get to the weather channel via Advanced>Computing>Weather?

I have setup my NAS with my LMCE username, not 'public' as a username.

I hope that there's something in there that can help.

Please advise.

Cheers.

Hi,

I'm installing another HDD into my "play" system.

I'm going to install 10.04 and change my NAS to no username/password.

We'll see what happens.

Cheers.

Hi,

UpdateMedia runs automatically.

Have you tried using top from a terminal window [  <ctrl/alt> F1  ] just to see if UpdateMedia is running?

Cheers.
