NAS network mount

Postby Kev » 16 Jan 2015, 15:39

I'm trying this for the first time. I've previously used LMS and have LMS installed on my NAS.

I've got the RPi working OK and can hear music when I use a USB stick.
I'm trying to mount my NAS a Synology DS213j. The music files are flac stored on /volume1/My Music
The settings I'm putting into "NAS Mounts" are:
source name My Music
fileshare protocol NFS
ip address 192.168.1.65 (no port address)
remote directory volume1/My Music

I'm getting "mount.nfs:Connection timed out

In my NAS I've gone into any settings I could find and ticked allow read write access.

Anyone any ideas where I've gone wrong?

cheers

I have same problem with NAS connection.
I followed guide and did almost the same settings as Kev, and tried all fileshare protocols available, but no success.

I tried on volumio and it works, but there I can enter username and password in connection settings, on runeaudio, username and password is bolocked.

Is there any default user (used by Runeaudio) or option for entering user/pass?

I'm using Synology DS 413j

I'm not sure what's going on with the NFS mounts. They sometimes work and sometime don't. I've had situations where it mounts and lists in my mount table but the library won't scan. when they are set properly, they're all good.

The thing that seems to work for me is selecting under the MPD settings...
Daemon user : group = root:root

and adding in the advances mount flag options of NFS...
nfsvers=3,rw

NFS can be pedantic depending on your server, make sure that it works with another system before trying on rune. It can be easier to troubleshoot that way.

the other thing that can go odd is if you put in settings as SMB/CIFS and then change to NFS after and your settings still remain. I noticed this with the advanced options settions. it was a one off so that could have just been me.

@jaka if you're using NFS, you shouldn't need password username. SMB/CIFS have a switch to turn on/off guest access

AND remember to close your mount with a "/"
i.e.: my Muziek/
It is a "feature" that sometimes gets overlooked :)
(ps - this is for SMB mounts)

so I should have enabled guest account on my NAS?

I don't know Synology, i had a Qnap and ditched it after all the silly fiddling and inconsistancies.
If you wanna go for SMB Guest, then yes, allow for guest on the server. If all else fails, plug in your super user admin account and work backwards from there. It's trial and error with these things i'm afraid.
I always found NFS better performance but harder to get right between server client pairs.

I use a Synology DS214 and works flawlessly via NFS, my suggestion is to stick with that.

I had exactly the same problem. Changing the daemon user group to root:root worked a treat for me. I had the same problem with my Synology DS214. Soon as I changed that, it started Upadating.

Hi,

Sorry to revive this old thread, but i figured it was better than starting a new thread about nas trouble.

I have been trying runeaudio for a few days now, and i can not get it to read the files on my synology nas drive. It connects just fine, but does not find any music on it.

There is roughly 50gb of music (mostly DSD) files on it, so i figured indexing would take som time. Even though it did not say that it was indexing anything, I gave it 15 hours to work without any difference. I have activated DSD playback.

I have tried the advice given in this thread, and have been searching for some time, without any result.


Hope you can help me out! I´ll provide full debug info if you need it.

Hi Nononono,

if i were you i would start with minimal setup.

- create a new directory on your NAS (e.g. testnfs)
- share this folder (NFS)
- create a new directory on your NAS (e.g. testcifs)
- share this folder (CIFS)
- put some files (flac, mp3 or wav) in the folders
- go to Rune and try to connect to them
- try different settings (security)
- try to change mpd user to root
