Description Of Issue
Just purchased the Synology DS218j to act as a NAS back up for the content on my iMac
As such, I have already successfully set it up as the destination drive for Time Machine, and also want to use it as the destination for Roon Backup.
I’ve set up a shared folder on the NAS called RoonBackUp, assigned read/write permissions to admin and my own user, enabled the SMB3 but I every time I try and get Roon to ‘find’ the destination I get error messages. This one if I don’t include user name / password
I guess it could be any one of a million possible variables of settings and permissions within either Roon, MacOS or the Synology software, and I have hit the limit of my modicum of IT knowledge, so sending this in the hope that someone else has this set up and has either resolved this issue or successfully completed the set up
You don’t use smb:// prefix like on Macs. And you don’t specify the /volume1 part of the path. You only specify the SMB share name.
Also, very strongly recommend you make a dedicated “Roon” user and assign them read/write to only the RoonBackUp share you created. If you are importing music from music shares, then give the Roon user read-only access to the imports.
