I’ve read through all the SMB related posts that I was able to find and have not come up with anything to help with my issue.
To explain… First, this is NOT an issue with connecting to SMB shares. I am able to connect and stream files via SMB shares, however, this requires that I manually add the share path (smb://servername). I am able to successfully connect using SMBv1, SMBv2, and SMBv3.
The issue is that when I try to connect to a share by browsing via “Windows Network (SMB)” I just get an empty window. I used to see my workgroup, then from there I would see the windows computers in the workgroup (At least the ones registered on my WINS server). I’ve tried setting the max protocol to SMBv1, SMBv2, and SMBv3. None seem to resolve the issue.
This problem has only recently popped up (About 1-2 months) as I was able to browse the network that way before.
Any input that may be helpful towards resolving this would be very much appreciated!
Some information about my setup:
- A Raspberry Pi 2 and a Raspberry Pi 3 both running OSMC v 2017.09-1
- A computer on my LAN running Windows Server 2016 which has:
–> Windows Shares for Kodi to connect to using a username and password on the server
–> A central SQL server that Kodi connects to for the library
–> A WINS server running in a Virtual Machine (Server 2016 Core)
