Please bump me to the correct forum if this if OT here.
I'd like to share a DVD optical drive on my network (OMV 5.6.13-1 on an odroidn2/ARM with Debian Buster, kernel 5.10.43-meson64). I've checked the following threads
as well as google, but can't get it to work. Basically I'm seeing the same issues as in
The disk is recognized under Storage -> Disks (/dev/sr0), the filesystem is mounted with files accessible (I tried both a data DVD/iso9660 and video DVD/udf), the shared folder is created, and the user privileges are set correctly. I tried SMB/CIFS (preferred), NFS, FTPS, and FTP shares, none would let the remote machine access the share. E.g. the SMB/CIFS share mount gives me
mount.cifs -o username=xxx,password=yyy //XXX.XXX.X.XXX/dvd /mnt/dvd/
mount error(2): No such file or directory
In the system log I can see
Jul 31 14:51:30 odroidn2 smbd: [2021/07/31 14:51:30.847698, 0] ../source3/smbd/service.c:782(make_connection_snum)
Jul 31 14:51:30 odroidn2 smbd: make_connection_snum: canonicalize_connect_path failed for service dvd, path /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-2013-03-05-18-34-01-00/dvd
and here I'm not sure why '/dvd' is appended to the mount point.
The fstab entry is
/dev/disk/by-uuid/2013-03-05-18-34-01-00 /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-2013-03-05-18-34-01-00 iso9660 ro,nofail 0 2
and mount gives
/dev/sr0 on /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-2013-03-05-18-34-01-00 type iso9660 (ro,relatime,nojoliet,check=s,map=n,blocksize=2048)
What would be the preferred way to share optical drives in OMV 5? I know I still have to work around the fact that changing the disc will require setting up a new share, but first I need to make it work at all.
The threads mentioned above concern OMV 2.x and 3.x, so maybe in 5.x things have changed?
Thanks much for any suggestions.
