PlexPi 1.2 Doesn't add files on HDD attached to the router

#1
Hi,
first of all thanks for this great release! I just bought a Pi3 to run my PMS so I'm not experienced with the pi and I have a limited linux knowledge.

I was able to access the plexpi web gui (although I need to use the IP address as the alias plexpi.local doesn't work).

I have a previously installed instance of PMS on my laptop and I have all my media on 2 HDDs both connected to the router.

On my laptop PMS I've configured the libraries to point directly to the network paths were the files reside, for example \\READYSHARE\HD1\MOVIES.

I tried to configure PMS on plexpi with the same path but it doesn't find the media.

Any clues?

EDIT: apparently I need to mount the network drive first, I manage to do it with the following commands (I have two HDDs):

Code:
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/USB_2TB /mnt/usb2TB
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/USB_3_1TB /mnt/usb1TB


How can I mount them automatically every time I reboot the pi?

I've tried adding to /etc/fstab the following lines but it doesn't work (my network share doesn't need password):

Code:
 //192.168.1.1/USB_2TB /mnt/usb2TB cifs username=root,password= 0 0 
//192.168.1.1/USB_3_1TB /mnt/usb1TB cifs username=root,password= 0 0


EDIT 2:
After some researches it seems that the mount command on the fstab is being executed before the network interface is up. In fact, if I manually run after the boot

Code:
sudo mount -a


the 2 HHDs get mounted correctly, so the line in fstab is correct.

Any clues on how to solve this?

EDIT 3:
I've solved it!! I run 

Code:
sudo raspi-config

and set in boot options to wait for network. I don't use the pi offline, so it's not an issue for me.

Hope this helps!!

Thanks!

Bye

Valerio
