hello all

i have too much time on my hands so i just upgraded to freenas 11.3 rc1 everything works well except emby jail. the old jail was constructed in 11.2 and worked fine.
so now i needed to rebuild the emby server. therefore i performed an (iocage clean -a ) in a shell before starting the process fine.
I have created a user called emby in freenas with full privileges.
so now i install the emby plugin
it will ask me what pool i want to use (my media pool is called media)
i enter the name emby as a name
release is 11.3
now there is the option to tick dhcp auto configure ipv4, Nat, vnet and berkeley packet filter everything with the exception of nat is checked
the only other ticked box is auto start and the jail auto starts fine I sometimes do not get an IP number for the jail when i do i get 192.168.1.237 which is fine.
I stop the jail to start adding mount points

this is where i have a problem


my window share is mapped as /mnt/media/movies (all in lower case)

so when i add a mount point to my jail i add as source /mnt/media/movies (all in lower case)
my destination i have /mnt/media/iocage/jails/emby/root/media/movies all is fine

now i want to add a folder called movies to the emby server

i add as server \\192.168.1.237
and in the optional share file /media/movies

when i go to sync emby will not load any movies ion to its server

what am i missing

please assist

not sure about the emby error, buy why 11.3rc1 when 11.3u1 is already out?

thank you for responding it is 11.3.u1 my bad

The share in freenas are owned by wbravin
emby has wbravin as a user
freenas has user emby in emby group with full privileges
when i go to scan folders emby will not load any movies to its server The scan starts and stop immediately
It looks like a permission issue however i do not see what to change
what am i missing

please assist
