Iomega Storecenter NAS and LinuxMCE.
« on: November 21, 2007, 05:59:07 pm »
 I have an Iomega Storecenter with about 800gig of storage and have configured it to have a few shares. I currently have all of my cd's and pictures on this device. It was setup as a fixed ip but i have changed this to DHCP so LinuxMCE will see it and add it.

It seems to add it ok i created a share called /MUSIC and linuxmce found the device and configured it and asked my what data awas on this share i told it music and wala. i have music.

Here is my problem.

every few minutes my LinuxMCE core keeps flashing a popup in the left corner about a Server device being configured or finishing or something. Almost like it keeps getting disconnected? or something is going on. I am not sure what logs to read yet have not gotting that far to see what trigger is causing this. Any help in what to look at next would be appreciated.

Another thing is that this device supports being a upnp server would that be better?

Another problem is i later went and added a new share called /PICTURES and LinuxMCE does not seem to be interested in adding this automagicly. Suggestions?

 Thanks in advance.

The popups will go away when LMCE is done configuring everything I think.

Hmmm... I'm not sure that will be the case. There are a lot of system messages that get reflected momentarily in the top left hand corner of the Orbiters screen.

However in 0710 there will be an option to set the alert level per MD so that will remove the 'visual noise' of these alerts in 'normal' use. Of course in some situations when configuring systems you want to see these messages.

 Ya still see them about every few minutes. Thats why i fear i have some connectivity issue or compatiblity issue with my NAS.. And also I still dont have any idea how to get my new share i added to my NAS "PICTURES" to register on my core.
