I just upgraded my pydio instance to the new (and shinny) cells - however, I can’t seem to have a way to add my network file share drivers (windows) ?
I’m assuming I need to go under the new DataSource - however, I can’t seem to find anywhere to add a network share. I tried to typed in my network share ie: //hypervpc/appz/ but doesn’t work. I also have a mapped shared drive but it doesn’t show up in the Peer Address*.
If someone could point me to the right direction that would be great!
You cannot add network shares as it is, you first need to mount a volume and then have a datasource point to that volume, make sure that you have rights to write in the parent folder, it is required to create a .minio.
for example /mnt/data/storage/your-mount
a .minio will be created inside storage when you create a datasource.
Hey there, so you have a windows hyperv machine running cells and you are trying to mount a shared network drive that’s on another server. Is that shared drive a NAS or another windows server?
I do not think you can do what you are trying to do, and wonder two possible pathways:
If your share is not a NAS and another windows server, could you run cells on that instead? That way it’s a local drive.
If your shared drive is a NAS, could you do a CentOS VM instead of Windows to run Cells, then mount a NFS share instead of SMB? I have way better luck with NFS mounts.
I do have a windows box with my storage and another windows machine with pydio cells installed on it. The windows instance where my storage is has no apps at all, just storage. All of my others windows instance connect through windows share drive.
As for your #1, ideally, i would like to not have any apps on that storage box. This windows box was not met to have any apps installed on it - just pure storage.
I could have another standalone OS (unix based) and install Cells on it but I feel this is a bit crazy to install a new OS, Install NFS to get around a feature that used to work Everything was working before Cells, seems like a regression or a feature that has been removed from previous pydio version?
I would like to jump on that cells version and keep it on windows if it’s possible!
