Create unrestricted share on Windows?
Install SMB utilities:
sudo su apt install cifs-utils
Create folder that system will use for mountpoint:
Mount Windows share
mount -t cifs //192.168.100.21/winshare /mnt/winshare
cd /mnt/winshare/ ls -l touch test.txt ls -l
If you see your test file than it works you can read and write to your share
Mount it permanently so is back even after reboot of the Pi.
Add a record that will reference your situation
//[Your Windows IP]/[Windows share name] [Raspberry mount point] cifs,uid=1000 0 0
In my case it will be like this:
//192.168.100.21/winshare /mnt/winshare cifs,uid=1000 0 0
Mount it all.
Create softlink between your share and folder i.e. the one that will hold movies for LMDS.
In my case it could be like this:
ln -s /mnt/winshare /home/pi/LMDS/media/movies
This way each time share data change I will see these changes inside
/home/pi/LMDS/media/movies where this folder will be utilized by containers like Sonarr i.e.
Install SMB utilities if you haven't already:
sudo su apt-get install cifs-utils
Create folder that system will use for mappings:
If your share require authentication, create file that will hold username and password details required to access network share:
sudo nano /root/smbpass
Put username and password details in to the file:
Change file permissions preventing unauthorized access:
sudo chmod 600 /root/smbpass
/etc/fstab file and add mapping record:
sudo nano /etc/fstab //NAS-IP/lmds /mnt/smbshare cifs iocharset=utf8,credentials=/root/smbpass,uid=1000 0 0
Save and exit.
sudo mount -a
See if you can list what is inside your share now.
ls -l /mnt/smbshare
You should see a list of directories and files shared from the NAS. If you do great, if you don't more than likely your NAS is not allowing access for the user you created for this share.
Create softlink between your
/mnt/smbshare and a folder i.e. which will hold movies for LMDS
In my case I will delete existing movies folder from inside ~/LMDS/media and instead will create a softlink with the new pointing it to my share like below:
ln -s /mnt/smbshare /home/pi/LMDS/media/movies
From now all containers that require access to movies folder will see your share and files in it.
With your support anything is possible
