While working with CentOS Linux 5 & Kernel Version 2.6.18-8.1.6.e15 I was trying to mount a CIFS type filesystem.
The file share is located on a Windows Server 2003 machine located on the same network as the Linux machine.
The issue originally began when I "unmounted" the mount. After that, I could no longer "mount" it back.
The following is used to mount:
mount -t cifs //servername/fileshare /mnt/net -o user=Username,pass=Password
The following is the response:
mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
It was mounted fine only a couple days ago, and nothing has changed besides me "unmounting" the mount. So the CIFS filesystem was supported by the system a couple days ago.
Thanks for all your help, its my first month using Linux.
