I created a file called storage-netrecordings.mount in the system.d folder with the following information:

Description=nfs mount script for recordings



I SSH’d into the box and gave the command “systemctl enable storage-netrecordings.mount”. The box seemed to accept the command. However, no folder named netrecordings shows up in the storage folder, should it?

I´m using NAS and NFS since 2010.
No nightmare.
I´m using smb/cifs with windows computers and nfs with linux computers, raspberry and amlogic boxes.

Samba -> Windows
NFS -> UNIX/Linux

Just my opinion and my five cents.

Windows uses samba.
You must configure it in samba config file.
