I’d like my Rock to automount on startup. CIFS seems to be the current approach. I have tried without success to add Storage to my Login items, but when I Restart, Storage mounts without the necessary permissions. Has anyone figured how to automate this process?
And by the way, when I then unmount the SMB-mounted Storage, and Connect to Server using cifs:\rock, it mounts with the appropriate permissions, but still shows “SMB” in Get Info window.
As a request, I would like Roon to revert back to using SMB. While not a huge inconvenience, manually mounting CIFS drives feels like a step backwards.
Slim, I had seen the automator technique; it’s next on my list of things to try. Mac OS has a way to automate via the Finder, but it doesn’t seem to extend to the CIFS mount.
u_gee, this change was prompted by a recent Roon build where some of us found our SMB-mounted drives (SMBv2 I think) no longer had the necessary rights to access the Storage mount from our Macs. The CIFS mount was a workaround (I think) until the problem is fixed.
This is not my “wheelhouse” so all corrections appreciated.
In theory it may still be possible to enforce SMB v1 (CIFS) using nsmb.conf on a per server level. It would be some protocol_vers_map entry for the Rock. But the man page refers to only three variants which will not help. If (and I did not test this) the undocumented version bitmap of 1 indeed enforces SMB v1 the standard way of auto mounting (as a Login Item) might work. This is just a pointer - it needs someone skilled to test & confirm and come up with the right commands to edit nsmb.conf
