Thanks, Dan. The QNAP 219P+ is an older (close to EOL) machine. Unfortunately, it does not have the configuration settings for smb in the interface. I understand on newer models it is located under control panel \ network and file settings \ Win/Mac/NFS but not on the 219.
I trialed Roon core on an older windows i7 and it worked but performance was not great. That is why i went with the NUC config recommended by Roon.
I have a new western digital NAS still in the box, but wanted to get the Roon core up and running on the NUC before I got into migrating to the new NAS, but got stopped adding the network share.
Maybe @crieke can tell me if the WD PR4100 NAS has any known issues working with Roon before I tear open the box… Also, that is the syntax I used. I also read somewhere that adding .local to the host can help, but no luck there either…
A bit more info… I am able to connect the core on the NUC to a windows share on a PC successfully.
Still not able to access the QNAP. This makes me think the QNAP is rejecting the connection, although I can access it from any of my windows machines and sonos system has no issues accessing the music library on the QNAP either.
@crieke - do you have any thoughts on QNAP config?
Hi Clark, i have the exact same QNaP, used as a backup for my main QNAP.
I have allowed Guest access to all useful shares on the TS-219Plus, and my music files are stored under the default share “Multimedia”;
thanks for the info @Mikael_Ollars,
This still seems odd. I assume guest access uses the same smb version compared to a regular authenticated user login. Can you remember if you had any special characters (like “ä ö ü ø å æ œ ß…”) in your username or password?
Break through! Due to the number of failed attempts from this IP, this machine was on the blocked list in the QNAP. I removed the IP from the list and am now able to connect using my designated music RO user! It probably was the special character in the password, so thank you @crieke for pointing that out!!
I find it odd that in today’s complex password world that special characters are a problem, but I can live with it.
