OSMC and WD My Cloud

Hello everyone!

I’m trying to setup a new OSMC install with a WD My Cloud. I can mount the NFS storage with sudo mount -t nfs /mnt/test but i can’t access password-protected folders. I’d like it for the folders to stay mounted permanently and i’d also like to use transmission with it… Any hints on how to configure fstab or something else? Thanks in advance.

Right well these settings work in fstab for the public folders: /mnt/Torrent nfs nouser,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0

Not sure about the password protected folders on the mycloud, you’d probably need some sort of credential file.

Credential file… Kodi can access the files ok on libnfs… I don’t quite get it.

Well the fstab entry i provided specifically states “nouser” so if you needed to access a folder which was username and password protected, you would need to figure out how to provide these credentials through fstab.


Try this:* /mnt/nameofshare* nfs username=administrator,password=pass atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0

Thanks Tom.
