I have a Raspberry Pi running OMV and have added MiniDLNA.
I've had the following problem for several months, but have not asked about it here because I was hoping to see some sort of pattern that might either help me solve it myself or give others more clues to help me. That hasn't really happened. This seems to be completely random.
I never have any problems seeing and accessing shared folders from Windows computers, but any time I reboot the system I can't see most of the folders and files from DLNA players.
The DLNA server is always visible straight after a reboot and I can see Browse Folders, Music, Pictures, Video, but when I browse I see sometimes one or 2 of my shared folders, sometimes none.
There is nearly always one file available. This is a test file I have put on an otherwise empty 1TB SSD connected via USB. A curious thing is that I see this file directly under Shared Folders even though it's in a Shared Folder called zSSD. I don't see the folder. Only the file.
The other 4 drives are USB hard disks connected to a USB port via a hub.
That's the only difference I can see. I can always access all the shares on these drives from Windows machines.
I have tried rebooting the machine again. Very occasionally, that has caused more folders to become visible, but usually there's either no change or it has become worse.
One time I tried deleting a couple of shares (one I could see and one I couldn't see) and when I re-added them neither were visible.
I've tried Rescan within MiniDLNA setting. I've tried disabling and then re-enabling the MiniDLNA server.
Often, if I just leave it alone for anything from 1 to about 5 days the shared folders will suddenly be visible again without anything being done by me.
Does anyone either have any clues or can you suggest things I can check to diagnose this? My Linux skill set is badly lacking.
