I face an issue that I cannot solve, thus seeking input here. I gathered that folks were successful in mounting a samba share in their nextcloud instance using the externals storage app within nextcloud, but for me does not work. There is a “cool solution” for this, but its content is not fully clear to me.
The problem for not being able to mount an external share is likely due to access at the nextcloud server level. But this is in a docker container, so it is not clear how to provide access to the nextcloud app to the samba share. Accessing the share from the member server on which the nextcloud app is running works OK. Accessing the samba share from within the nextcloud shell is giving me NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME error. The docker container does not have (m)any utilities so it is not clear for me how to troubleshoot this. The container did not have the smbclient installed which I did to test access.
Can someone please with a working solution post how to open the necessary ports in registry to allow external storage access into nextcloud docker?
Thanks in advance
