This topic indeed has been produced, but the solution does not work for me.
My remarks are below. I do not use any passwords, so this does not work for me. Furthermore, the message I get is “not able to connect to the network server”. Before this everything really worked fine.
The issue you are currently experiencing with OSMC
I’m unable to access my SMB shares
What you were doing when this issue occurred
I had just rebooted after getting the latest update and tried to access an existing share.
Whether you can replicate this issue on demand. If you can, then please provide some steps on how an OSMC developer can reproduce the same issue.
I can reproduce it by trying to access an existing share again.This does not work.
The device you are currently running OSMC on
Raspberry Pi model 3
What peripherals are attached to the device?
None at the moment.
Has this issue been introduced by a new version of OSMC? When did the issue first appear and can you recall a time when it was not present?
Yes, it’s happened right after the latest update. Before that, everything was working fine.
Are you using Windows? I posted a workaround here:
Since Win8 Windows also keep asking about password even if there wasn’t any, but we could bypass it using guest account (without joining to homegroup). Yesterday I wasn’t be able to use guest login on Kodi. Maybe empty pass field is unsupported, just guessing.
I guess you will need to update the samba server on the NAS as the badlock bug impacted the communication between the client and the server and as written above with the new security patch also additional security settings have been enabled on old protocols
Same problem here. I’m getting a window titled ‘lock preferences for smb’ and then i have to enter password and username. On other devices i can access my shared files without any problems… Any solutions?
