Rename Openshare Root folder

Post by lalubina » Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:14 am

Hi there. I'm a Plex user and I've got two Lacie Network Space 2, one for movies and the other for TV shows. The problem is that my Mac Mini sometimes mounts "MOVIES" as Openshare and sometimes as Openshare-1, thus making Plex go crazy and giving the obnoxious "Error/Could not determine input file format" message.

So I need to change the name of "OPENSHARE". Any ideas? Thanks a lot in advance.

You are talking about the Samba share? It's name is defined in /etc/samba/smb.conf (The exposed sharename is between the []).
Create a custom configuration file to define your own sharename.
