So I'm in the process of moving from a dedicated Hetzner to a local home server. When I install on on the Hetzner I have no problem getting Plex to scan the library automatically. I just use Plex's built-in options to scan automatically, and to run a partial scan when changes are detected. Works flawlessly.

I cannot get this funcitonality working on a local server. I've seen discussions about using a seperate script, but I really can't get my head around why this just works on a dedicated Hetzner but not the local server. Are there things that are fundamentally different about these that would make this obviously not work? I've tried setting up my local server as a "local server" in the setup and as a "remote server". Same results either way.
