Hi Charlie,

Is volume_1 and Multimedia the same HDD?

Multimedia is a directory under volume_1?

Hi Charlie,

Is there a reason why you aren't using the LMCE directory tree?

It looks like you have created a folder under volume_1 called mutilmedia.

If you've done that you might have to play with the share name, Directories and other stuff in the device tree to get it recognized.

If you've got videos just put them in the public/data/videos directory and LMCE will deal with them.  Music in public/data/music on the NAS.

Them it should be as simple as volume_1 Volume_1 user=charlie read/wite and oplocks/archive=yes (for windows systems if they are accessing).

pigdog,
I do have a linuxmce directory structure as follow:
/Volume_1/Multimedia/public/data/audio,documents,games,pictures,pvr,videos
                             /user_1
                              /user_2

I'm thinking to go ahead and use Volume_1 as the shared folder instead Multimedia, and move my data from Multimedia to Volume_1, then it will look exactly like yours, and my other NS4300N NAS.
I will let you know the results.

Hi Charlie,

The BT share is something different that you won't access from LMCE (Bit Torrent stuff) - You must have clicked the button - were you intending on using it?

You now have that NAS-PROG/BT directory.  It's not easy to delete.

Anyway,

You must delete the volume_1 ALL share and the Multimedia share - which might have cause problems, the 2 of them existing, in the first place.

LMCE directory structure would not have listed multimedia in the main menu Media>subfolder anyway.

This would have to have been mounted as public originally and not using the LMCE directory tree.

We started all of this because our public folders weren't coming up properly because of the changes in 810 & the DNS version needing to be 1.07 or higher than we oriiginally were.

When you are finished you should have, with user "charlie" and password,

Share = volume_1
Path = volume_1
User/Group = charlie
oplock/archive=yes
r/w=checked.

Then with video in /public/data/video, music in public/data/music you should get it listed from main menu>videos or music

with username/password/ password required checked in device tree.

Cheers-Beers.

pigdog,

I enabled this BT in the past to test it out, I'm not intending to use it with LMCE.
I'm planning to move my data to NS4300N then re-format the D-link and start from scratch.

Hi Charlie,

 :o Reformat seems extreme - is that because you tried get rid of the BT directory?

I managed to get rid of it using the smbclient command to deleted what I could.

Then I had to upgrade to 1.08 which allowed me to removed the rest.

In 1.08 BT is a module (there is a NAS module - which I tried for my problem) that has to be added instead of something that gets bundled automatically.

Then I de-graded to 1.07 because the NAS module didn't help.

Finding the 1.08 beta patch was a little stupid.

Well, I went back and re-formatted the DNS-323 NAS, and re-installed it on my core using "Volume_1" as the shared folder, removed "user=all", added new user,  and that's it, worked as expected.

The access issue I had before using the squeezebox could be related to the following issues "either one or both", was not sure which one:
1) I was using /Volume_1/Multimedia as my shared folder where now i'm using the root directory /Volume_1
2) The NAS had already data copied from Windows machine into already created directory structure, where now I started with clean drive, then after LMCE added the shared folder, I copied my data to the directories that was already created for me

Thanks to all the people who supported me  :)

ccoudsi - its gone through so many convoluted twists and turns to get here... could you please summarise only the necessary steps to get the NAS working in a wiki article?

Hi Charlie & Colin,

My personal 2 cents is I think the problem was having the share as ALL access and then the Multimedia subdir as Charlie user on the DNS-323.

I think it's hierarchical related.  The linux version seems to be pretty dumb-downed on the NAS.

When I started my journey down the rabbit hole my troubles began as public directory structure, ALL access.

Which was fine in earlier alphas.  There has been work in pluto-storage/network/etc. and things haven't been as lenient.

Changing to LMCE directory tree, I'm still ALL access- r/w, no username/password has allowed my media to be fully detected.

I have one odd problem I'm still trying to investigate IF i could only figure out how to create an ip3v2 GEOB.

Until the next challenge.

Cheers guys.
