Solved: Can't see Synology NAS Library

It's hard to figure out what is going on with your configuration from the little you have told us.

I see the two sources you mounted are from the same server. Are they on separate branches of the directory tree on the server (e.g., so no closed loop is formed)?

There's no need to manually regenerate the library and album cover thumbnail cache after the sources are mounted. As described in the setup.txt file, return to the Library panel and select m>Update library. Do you then see new entries in /var/log/moode.log similar to the following?

Code:
20210129 212610 worker: Job sourcecfg
20210129 212647 worker: Job update_library
20210129 212647 mpdindex: Start

20210129 212650 mpdindex: Done: indexed 4 artists, 3 albums, 23 songs
20210129 212650 worker: Job update_library done


Do you also see new entries in /var/log/mpd/log file similar to the following?


Code:

In my case, I captured the above log outputs after spinning up my DSM 6.1-15047 running on a virtual machine. It's acting as an NFS server for a single directory containing the original cast recording of Leonard Bernstein's musical Candide headlining Barbara Cook (the first album I ever ripped and still has messed up track names and metadata<grrr>). As well, there were a few files on the uSD card in addition to the Stereo Test file, hence the mpdindex counts.

Following this, the album and its tracks display properly in the various Library views and playback properly and cover art and thumbnails display correctly.

Regards,
Kent

Examine the MPD log for errors. It records each file that it is able to successfully index and if it encounters any errors trying to index files.

Code:
cat /var/log/mpd/log

The files in your music collection have to be marked with read access and the directories marked with both read and execute access.

What Tim said.

I've been doing some things so often I don't remember to tell others Blush

I had been getting some strange access issues as well.  I ended up setting the client name in Synology to “moode.*” (or whatever you’ve renamed your box to).  That let it connect more reliably, especially if the IP address varied.  


Make sure you map all users to Admin.  And that that you allow access to sub folders on the last screen.  

Good luck.
Mike
