I know there are a lot of already asked questions in the web concerning plex server and ubuntu but none of the solutions worked for me. I am using ubuntu 16.04 LTS clean install. I installed plex media server to which I have access via web browser so I think this works fine. Since all my media files are on diffrent NAS, I need to mount these. For this I created a folder in my home directory /home/video/movies to which I assigned
sudo chown -R username:plex /home/video/movies sudo chmod -R 770 /home/video/movies
to mount I added the following line to my /etc/fstab file:
//static_ip_to _nas/movies /home/video/movies cifs uid=1000,username=yyy,password=xxx,vers=2.0
I tried diffrent setups with adding gid,rw and so on but the posted setup showed the best result considering write access. But when I try to add a mediafolder to plex via webbrowser plex is not doing anything. When I check the permissions of the mounted movies folder there is no plex user shown even it was shown before mounting the NAS. I also tried the uid from the plex user for the fstab file but this didn't work eather. The second problem is the second NAS which is also a QNAP NAS like the first one only a newer version. When I set the same command like above for the second NAS and run sudo mount -a I get an error that this action is not supported. Why is this and how can I succesfully add my mediafolder to plex?
ls -la /home/max/video/movies total 8 drwxrwxr-x 2 770 plex 4096 Mär 14 20:05 . drwxrwxr-x 3 770 plex 4096 Mär 14 20:05 ..
ls -la /home/max/video/movies total 180 drwxr-xr-x 2 max root 0 Mär 12 21:17 . drwxrwxr-x 3 770 plex 4096 Mär 14 20:05 .. drwxr-xr-x 2 max root 0 Nov 10 14:01 movie1 drwxr-xr-x 2 max root 0 Feb 20 17:20 movie2 . . .
The error message I'm getting while mounting the second NAS is:
mount: mount //192.168.178.5/Max/Video/Mediathek/Movies on /home/max/mediathek/video/movies failed: Operation not supported
Is it possible that the error has something to do with port bundling of the NAS?
