SMB1 for Sonos Controller 1 to discover music library

 · 1 min · torgeir

Linux Smb Sonos Mount

I attempted to share a network drive with Sonos, but my Sonos Controller 1 application did not show the option to add a Music Library

Turns out I had to download and install it again 🤷

Also, the Sonos Controller 1 application needs SMB1 enabled to be able to use smb shares as a Music Library

This can be enabled with the following in the smb configuration on the server.

server min protocol = NT1

I also for some reason have this, which I believe improved permissions handling from macos (?)

smb1 unix extensions = no

Don’t really remember.
