I'm running a vps which my vps-provider tells me is an OpenVZ container - but I don't know what that means. I have centos 7 64 bit installed on this vps and I'm trying to mount a share at a remote location using this command:
mount -t cifs -o username=<username>,password=<password> //<remote-ip>/share /media/smb-share
but I get:
mount: unknown filesystem type 'cifs'
so I installed cifs-utils and ran the command again but this time I get:
mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
The '<remote-ip>/share' location is working fine because I've tested it on other machines so the problem is with the vps. Is there a way to get this to work on the vps I have?
ps: if it's any help...
