Samba server randomly disconnects.

  • I'm using OMV5 on a Raspberry Pi 3b+ with Raspbian OS (latest updates applied). Two hard drives are connected to the Rp. Only one of them draws power , other is a self powered USB hard disk.
    Setup works flawlessly for a long time , then -probably after an update - I cant see the USB disk from other devices. Rp itself woks fine and it can read/write to the USB drives , so I'm assume the problem is the Samba server.


    I'm not sure what the problem may be. Any ideas where should I be checking first?

  • Thank you for the quick response.


    this is what I get for the "systemctl status smbd.service"

    There is an error but any ideas about the cause?
