How do i add/mount my exsisting NAS drive (WD,MybookLive) so that i can add the folder to my plex server?
As i understand it (and this is day1 of me using Linix)
i have to add a line in fstab to mount the drive.
$ sudo gedit /etc/fstab
so i have added the following line:
//192.168.0.100/Public/videos/ /media/Plex cifs guest 0 0
I have three shares on my NAS,a public share called "Public",in there i have several folders but one called videos has... all the video files.
Public doesn't need an account/password but i have created a user called guest with no password and access to Public.
to test the mount i type
$ sudo mount -a
which gives the response:
mount error(22): Invalid argument Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
i can check my log, which states:
Oct 19 22:33:28 Jon-Server kernel: [ 3084.106615] No dialect specified on mount. Default has changed to a more secure dialect, SMB2.1 or later (e.g. SMB3), from CIFS (SMB1). To use the less secure SMB1 dialect to access old servers which do not support SMB3 (or SMB2.1) specify vers=1.0 on mount.
so from what i understand, i have to do two things, maybe? one is specify the version of cifs
the other is to add in a line about the language/locale to use,
but i don't know how to parse that into one line or what i should even do now.
