Edit /etc/fstab to
1. Change the Drobo line to mount the Drobo public folder at /storage:
2. Delete the line that mounts /storage from the internal hard drive:Code://10.x.x.x/public /storage cifs guest,_netdev 0 0
(or comment it out by prefixing the line with a #).Code:/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_storage /storage ext4 defaults 1 2
3. Check with "mount -a" when done editing /etc/fstab.
Ron, do I need to manually create the read/write and read only file directory on the NAS?
No, but you should create music, pictures, and movies directories under public on your NAS.
You want the directories set up under /storage to look the same whether you're mounting /storage from the internal hard drive or from the NAS.
I was able to put this to the test today. Here are a few observations.
The internal drive is still being mounted for storage and the Drobo is also. When the first CD was ripped the folders were dynamically created and mirrored on both drives.
The first Blu-ray rip placed the mkv in the tmp folder and it remained there after completion.
I rem'd out the internal mount but it still mounts. Here is my fstab:
/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root / ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=866d8d86-b531-436a-ad33-4fa8c8817d10 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
# /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_storage /storage ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_swap swap swap defaults 0 0
//10.0.0.3/public /storage cifs guest,_netdev 0 0

Hi all, and thanks for the useful explanations present on this thread.
Following those advice I managed to point the flac and mp3 directories of my vortexbox to my drobbo-fs with the following entries in my fstabs file :
I can rip to the flac directory and LMS can stream the music from it, implying that both read and write access are operational.Code:192.168.0.113:/musique/Flac /storage/music/flac cifs guest,_netdev 0 0 184.108.40.206:/musique /storage/music/mp3 cifs guest,_netdev 0 0
However, the Flac Mirror constantly returns the following message :
I have tried adding appropriate username and password fields in the fstab without success.Code:Using flac from: /usr/bin/flac Using lame from: /usr/bin/lame Processing directory: /storage/music/flac Found 0 flac file
Any idea about where this comes from and how to correct it would be very welcome !
