[SOLVED] HASSOS mount NAS network share

One other option is to write to frigate thread if somebody have the same NUC and if its working to them and how they set it up.

yes last bios version. I’m searching around if there is others driver to install

let me know if you will be out of option i can connect and try to fix, further i have no idea what to do

I managed to kill my docker lxc and decided to try frigate in hassos again. And so I filled up my root partition again with camera footage, so I decided to use your script.
It worked nicely! Saves a bit of work. Thanx.

In addition, I had to mount sdb8 (normal mount works fine here) in the VM as well to clean up the media files. There is no gui element to make some room after your disk has filled to 100%.

Thank you for info, happy to help :slight_smile:

Please vote for my feature request that asks for this to be a native function of HA:

The release 2022.3 made it posible with a new integration. :clap:

I couldn’t find anything either, please share @Yves_IF please, pretty please?

I successfully mounted an SMBv3 share following this post:


    multimedia: /media


  mount_multimedia: !secret shell_mount_multimedia


shell_mount_multimedia:  'mkdir -p /media/multimedia && mount -t cifs -o username=foo,password=bar // /media/multimedia'

And the automation at homeassistant startup with service:


So to clarify, the ‘secret’ url for the media directory on your NAS is simply listed as:
// /media/multimedia

…so it would be:

  mount_multimedia: // /media/multimedia shell_mount_multimedia

Is that correct? Because I’ve struggled to get this working with my setup.

(for the record you don’t need to hide internal IP addresses, but I get that the secrets file can be a handy place to reference for when you need to change something in a central location)

Your post has different paths, which is confusing, likely a mistake, and probably won’t work for most people. Specifically, you are pointing HA to /multimedia, creating a new directory /mnt/multimedia, and mounting the network path on /media/multimedia. That doesn’t sound right.

Hi @denilsonsa , would you mind helping me fix my config?

Currently I have a NAS share at called music and another called movies. I’d like to link both of those to the HA media browser but my config below doesn’t work.

  mount_nasmusic_folder: mkdir -p /media/music; mount -t cifs -o 'ro,username=MY_USER,password=MY_PASSWORD' // /media/music

I don’t have much Linux knowledge so the above is purely cope/paste from others and substituting my details.

This is what I’m using Dave, hopefully it helps:

shell_mount_movies:  'mkdir -p /media/movies && mount -t cifs -o username=xxx,password=xxx // /media/movies'

From my previous experience the problem is that this shell mount was only for homeassistant docker, not for Frigate. Can you confirm that realy the recordings are saved on nas?

@sparkydave @denilsonsa I’m sorry, I made some mistakes by obfuscating and simplifying the configuration. I edited the post with correct version

No I can’t. I think you are right, this is only for HA Docker.
I didn’t catch at all the point of the post, sorry.
