DietPi not seen on network after update to 6.xx

Post by Nohippychicks »

I discovered DietPi around November of last year (I liked the Christmas tree on the startup screen then...) and have been using it for a backup and streaming media server since.

Two-ish weeks ago, I noticed that I should update to 6.xx and that the previous version is now unsupported.

When I updated, I lost visibility of the DietPi on my Win 10 home network and I don't know where to look for troubleshooting.

I have a RPI 3B with a WD 2T EasyStore drive attached, the same setup that worked great before; no hardware changes.

I can SSH in via Putty, and a ping from my laptop shows 4 packets sent and received with none lost.

I tried installing ProFTP as well as Samba and nothing seems to make the DietPi show up in the network.

From what I remember of the previous working version, there was basically no setup.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but all of my xxPi knowledge comes from Google, so I'm not sure where to look next.

Have you installed Samba?

I have, in fact, installed Samba.

An update to this, but maybe not a solution: I can now see the DietPi on the network!

I don't know what magic happened; today, I reflashed the card, set up the Wifi and...voila, it's up and addressable on the network.

The only thing I changed was I used a different SD card. The one I had been using for the past couple of weeks was the exact one I'd used on the previous version of Diet Pi, but maybe it got some corruption or something.

At any rate, I can see it on the network and tomorrow I'll hook up my little external drive and see if I can go back to a DietPi server instead of a Raspbian server.

I kinda wish I knew what I did wrong before or what I did right this time, but it's chooch'n along right now.
