Well, either the service lacks permissions to access said network share, and with you having to enter that password, it highly seems the case 😉
Mount the network share at boot, and have firefly start up delayed. Of course you’d have to change the music_dir to pont to the drive instead of the UNC path.
Even with drive mapped, the server doesn’t share that drive. It resolves it by unc.
If it doesn’t start, what’s the error? Do you see anything in your event log or in the firefly log?
