Mounting SMB shares - Could not resolve mount point


I am trying to mount a SMB share as a user with a fstab entry. The entry looks like this:
Code:
//server/share /mnt/website smbfs username=USER 0 0
When I try to mount it with smbmount as a user, I get:
Code:
[wynd@l0s2 ~]$ smbmount /mnt/website/
Could not resolve mount point 
[wynd@l0s2 ~]$
Can anyone give me a hand?

your dns can't resolve that address. you presumably can't ping it by name either.

try mounting it with the ipaddress like:

//192.168.1.1/share /mnt/website smbfs username=USER 0 0

Or try adding a line to your /etc/hosts file:

192.168.1.1 servername

Linux will read the hosts file when resolving a name to an ipaddress, just use the real ipaddress of your server instead of 192.168.1.1
