I have several different external storage configured (mostly smb).
Every once in a while, one of the smb server goes down. There’s different reasons for that, but for the moment not much can be done about it. In any case, the datas are not critical, no big deal if they’re not available for a few hours or even a full day.
The problem is that, when this server stops, We get a message when trying to connect to nextcloud saying that an external storage is unavailable. Nextcloud is then no longer available.
Is it considered normal that the access to all the files of nextcloud are getting blocked because one random external storage doesn’t work.
I would have expected a warning message with some indications about which folders are affected.
The workaround is probably going to be a system mount of the CIFS fs on linux and an external storage pointing to the local mounting point.
