I found this thread after experiencing the same issue this weekend. what ended up being the final resolution colinjones?
I made the corrections to the StorageDevices_StatusRadar.sh file and got my media to display. Thought I had it fixed until I came home yesterday and found my Core/Hybrid machine hung and I had to reboot. When it came back, my Windows shared media were missing again. I went directly to the admin page and the Online checkbox for all of my window shares were not checked. I checked the Online box, hit Save, closed the admin page, went back into the admin page, and again, the box was not checked.
I think I'm close to getting it to work, so I don't want to make any drastic changes. Since I can use search and find the media, does that mean the entries are still in the database?
Also, since I can play the windows shared media after finding it in a search, would that indicate that my permissions, firefall, network, etc is valid?
