Hello, 

 

I am now running Emby on windows 10 and wondering what user account does Emby use ? I know for linux its Emby user and Ebmy group.

I am needing to mount my SMB share drive to windows for Emby to use. What credentials do I need to make available to Emby?  

Can I run Emby server as a service and specify my own user account / password for the service to run under?

Hi, whatever windows account is logged in when you run the server application.

Okay so I made a user account for windows 10 called sesipod and matched the password of my nas user account. Installed emby under that user account and then followed the steps here and set the logon as user to my username for windows 10.

 

Nas SMB Share : username ( sesipod )

Windows 10 user account : username ( sesipod )

Emby Service (logon as): username ( sesipod )

 

The password matches across all of the systems for the sesipod user account.

 

-- I will post back if there is any issues - if not I will ask/close the topic.

There are some challenges with it and we just haven't gotten to the point of being able to focus on it yet. I'm sure at some point we will.

You can have it restart if you don't change the default exit action. In this instance 'shutdown' is actually restart and you have to stop the service outside of emby if you wanted to shutdown.
