mythtv adding smb share to storage group.
Any Help Appreciated...
What server. If it's running some POSIX OS then I'd use NFS.
It's a samba share I don't want want to setup a nfs server when my samba server is already established for past two years.
NFS server will not affect your existing SAMBA server. There is absolutely no reason why the very same volume couldn't be shared via SAMBA, NFS, AFP, FTP, HTTP, etc.
is this the only way to get it in mythtv?
Because I need to be able to add it to my storage group in mythtv.
if so, how do I go about it?
It's not the only way, altough in my opinion NFS is much easier to set up than SAMBA. And NFS is the native way for POSIX systems.
You add it to MythTV as you add local directories.
so I setup the nfs on my fileserver and mount the share to a directory on mythbuntu but now I can't delete the recordings.
Something is gone south with permissions. Remember, permissions in NFS do not follow username, they are determined by UID instead. Did you use NFSv3 or NFSv4? Also make sure export options in export file are what you need them to be. man exports
I figured it was permissions but instead of trying to set them on a directory in /
I just re-mount it to the default directory for myth at /var/lib/mythtv/recordings and now it works fine.
