I am posting my problem as a new thread as I had no response when I posted on the other Synology thread by Tobias
Please help me if you can !
I am new to raspberry Pi , NAS and all things networking so please feel free to make the most basic of suggestions.
I installed a raspberry Pi 3 as Squeezebox Server a couple of weeks ago. It works great , temporarily set up a USB external hard drive to test and I got that figured out no problem. Got the premium license to try the wifi access point and turned that on . That works fine although not very high bitrate.
I just installed a new Synology NAS (216J) on my home network for permanent redundant music and music storage. As I mentioned above I know nothing about NAS devices and very little about networking in general. I can see the NAS in windows on home PC and laptops. Was able to access the NAS through those devices via the DSM web app and also was able to map a network drive. Also was able to access the NAS with my android phone using the Synology app using the quickconnect feature.
When trying to mount the drive :
I see the”//diskserver/music” folder when I hit the ” show network devices ” botton in max2play web interface
I tried a couple of ways to mount it:
I actually got the drive to mount using the top two inputs above but when I went in to the slimserver web interface settings and tried to navigate to the folder /mnt/share and run a scan there are no files. When I browse the folder is empty.
Now today it mounted once and as per the other day the folder appears empty.
Now it will not even mount.
I get errors like
“Retrying with upper case share name mount error(6): No such device or address Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) mount error: could not resolve address for diskserver: Unknown error Retrying with upper case share name mount error(6): No such device or address Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Mountpoint NOT added! Please refer to the description below!
This is driving me crazy so any help would be appreciated.

I have discovered that if I do not include the “//” at the start when inputting the ip address for the nas in max2play that I can successfully mount the share. The problem is that it does not show up in the folders when I try and add it in the slimserver web interface. The /mnt/share folder is empty.
Any ideas ?31. December 2016 at 4:53 #25326
Hello technical support people at max2play? Are you out there ?? hoping you are on a xmas break!
Seems like my questions fall on deaf ears in this forum but I continue to post about my problem as there is no where else to go it seems for technical support for the max2play OS.
I added a “http:” in front of the
and the share seemed to mount . I tried with the options filled in per the help instructions using my user name and password and also tried with no options. In both cases the share mounts but as per all of my previous attempts there is no access in kodi or slimserver.
Without access to the NAS it is rather useless for my intended application.
Once again any help would be appreciated.4. January 2017 at 18:00 #25523
I got as response from Heiner on the other synology mount thread that I originally posted my problem on so I copied my details into that thread if they want to use that one to keep the synology issues in one place. So far I have not received any significant assistance beyond ” watch the video” which I suspect you have also already done at least once and resetting the max2play to the original settings. You may want to try that if you did not do that yet. I had already tried that before posting so those suggestions were no help for me and my NAS files are still not accessible. Hoping we will get some more help soon.11. January 2017 at 18:14 #25797
Hi Ross and Steve,
So sorry about the late response. We are still working on getting up to date on all technical requests since Christmas. Thank you for your patience.
Please check your share and how you specified the login data (username and pw). Try accessing the share from a PC, the same procedure is used and the same input should work on Max2Play’s interface. http should not be included in the input. Please check the IP address of your diskstation to make sure you have selected the right one. This is the most ideal input for the share to be recognized. Please create another user than “admin” or “guest” and assign it its own password. We have a diskstation here at work and actually have not encountered any of these issues before, so we are especially interested in what is causing your errors.11. January 2017 at 22:06 #25800
I followed your instructions and created the new user ” max2play” on the diskstation and it worked !!
This mounted and worked when I accessed through the squeezebox server interface.
Then I tried another mount, to access my video folder on the NAS
This also loaded but in squeezebox server I can see only one folder ” music” .The video folder is not visible. I think I need to create separate folders on the pi to give separate targets ie /mnt/share/music and /mnt/share/videos to give each share a proper path. Is this what is required or should it have worked the way I did it ?16. January 2017 at 16:50 #25964
The help section of the Filesystem/Mount menu is very helpful on that:
Mountpoint on Max2Play (for usage in Squeezebox Server or XBMC): /mnt/mountdir/ Mountpoint must be a subdirectory in /mnt/ OR /media/ and will be generated, if it is not existing.
