Sonos: Permission to Access Music Library
—A remedy for music library permisions on my Sonos system.
I have two WiFi networks. My Sonos
is on one network. Everything else is on the other. Occasionally, my Sonos Controller for Mac reports that it does not have permissions to access a music library located on my MacBook Pro. This occurs when adjusting my Music Library Settings in the Controller.
I corrected this by moving the the MackBook hosting the music library to the same WiFi network used by the Sonos.
The music library is still accessible after moving the MacBook back to the other network and restarting the Sonos Controller. This implies that the permissions issue is confined to the initial set up the music library in the Controller.
A better solution is to put all Sonos' and the MacBook on the same network.
