called name not present. RHEL -> W7.
 
Hello we recently migrated a Windows XP file server to Windows 7. Now we're struggling to map to the drive from RedHat.

Code:

[root@lynx etc]# mount -t smbfs -o username=database,password=database //10.50.0.100/ftp /home/ftpupload.kv_users/config/ftp
4435: session request to 10.50.0.100 failed (Called name not present)
4435: session request to 10 failed (Called name not present)
4435: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
SMB connection failed
[root@lynx etc]#

Any ideas? We can map the drive on the W7 box from a Windows XP box.

nevermind, schoolboy error used name instead of IP and mounts fine.

Hi,

Disable Firewall and SeLinux.

Then try cifs instead of smbfs.

This example will help you:

Quote:

mount -t cifs //192.168.2.45/softwares /mnt/data -o username=Administrator
Its not a schoolboy error "Spuddy" even IP works.
