Mounting windows server onto SuSE backup server
Hi, I'm a noob and brand new to LinuxQuestions.org.
Firstly, apologies if this is the wring forum for my post - I couldn't find a SuSE forum.
Secondly - the problem at hand - I am trying to mount a Windows server onto a Linux backup server (SuSE) directory called /mnt/backup. I then want to copy a few files across and then unmount the Windows server. This script will be run daily.
I have been told to run the follwing command (works under Debian):
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxx \\\\xx.xx.xx.xx\\SomeDirectory /mnt/backup
When I run this script I get the following error:
"22856: session request to xx.xx.xx.xx failed (Called name not present)"
Couple of questions:
Is this a samba error or a SuSE OS error?
Have I messed up the parameters for the mount command?
Are there log files I can view with more details on the above error messages?
What am I doing wrong?
If anyone can help - I'd be most grateful - cheers!
