Firmware 4.5 GL-ATX1800 WSDD2 returns an error procd: Instance wsdd2::instance1 s in a crash loop 7 crashes, 0 seconds since last crash

Samba turned on and working correctly. Need WSDD2 to work.

How did you configure it?

Setup Samba in wizard. Added wsdd2 as a plug-in. Simple setup.

Afaik Samba in GL is a custom version of samba, so it might be not compatible.

Wsdd2 is a stand alone service that works in conjunction with Samba. Looking at different threads in this forum and Openwrt forum - other people have gotten it to work. It makes setting up Windows network mapping a breeze.

So after much research, I traced the problem with wsdd2.

All this tells me the GL- iNET OpenWrt repository has not been updated in the last three years (at least as far as wsdd2 is concerned)

Any chance that this is true?

Pretty sure that this might be true, yes.
OpenWrt is behind the current version - so if nobody synced it; it’s pretty old.

I found a fix:
Under Plug-ins - install wsdd2
In LuCI - System - Startup - Local Startup Tab:
Add “(sleep 10; /usr/bin/wsdd2 -i br-lan -w -d) &” before ‘exit 0’
Then Reboot

Let me know if this works for you.
Samba must be setup and working for wsdd2 to start.
