Just received my raspberry pis and trying to mount my shared folders but not having much luck so far. Followed the instructions set out here - http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud-EX2/Mounting-MyCloud-EX2-on-a-Linux-desktop/td-p/730120 but receiving the error “mount(2): Protocol not supported…”. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
Found the solution myself. For some reason while the OP in linked thread needed to put full path (i.e. /mnt/HD) etc I just needed to put my local IP/share folder for it to work.
So my fstab file has been edited to include:
//[local.IP]/Audio /home/pi/Audio cifs credentials=/home/pi/.credentials,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
Note with the “credentials=” part I seperately created a .credentials file with:
username=[WD user with access to share]
Ran sudo mount -a and it is now all working fine with no errors. What has been other folk’s experience with this - did you need to put full path name or just the shared folder name?
Thank you very much for sharing the solution and outcome. Hopefully this will be helpful to other Users as well.
