    • How to mount a remote CIFS share of a NAS on openmediavault

      Hi All,

      I have a QNAP NAS which CIFS share is created.
      Basically, all I need is to mount that CIFS on the openmediavault.

      My idea is to install plex and have plex to be able to browse the remote CIFS for media.

      please advise. thanks
    • You should use the openmediavault-remotemount plugin. ;)

    • too check all plugins. omv2.x is not existent on that page, and i dont even know if there is plugins for it ...

      Due to debian life cycle, i say go for omv4.x

    • thanks guys.

      I installed 3.0.94 last night and it worked like a charm.
      but I stumbled upon a new problem.
      I've created this CIFS with everyone read/write access.
      I can access this CIFS from windows box not problem. able to create/modify files.
      However, it doesn't work from OMV 3.0.94

      So I've installed Sonarr and when I tried import media which is on the remote share (QNAP), it complained that user sonarr doesn't have the permission to modify.

      I went to qnap folder permission setting and the folder which is the one that being shared has lrwxrwxrwx --> l means symbolic link apparently.
      so i think that's pretty much read write access for everyone. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

      Any advise would be much appreciated. cheers
