mount -t cifs is not working on RHEL


Hi,

I tried to mount window's share on "2" linux boxes.


FC9:
Code:
# sudo  mount -t cifs   //d-data/share    -o username=name,password=passwd tmp-data/
works fine.


How ever on RH5
Code:
#mount -t cifs   //d-data/share    -o username=name,password=passwd tmp-data/

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //d-data/share ,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

# dmesg | tail
 CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

# lsmod | grep fs
nfsd                  285065  17 
exportfs               38849  1 nfsd
auth_rpcgss            81889  1 nfsd
cifs                  281297  0 
hfsplus               111817  0 
nfs                   290189  0 
lockd                  99185  3 nfsd,nfs
fscache                52385  1 nfs
nfs_acl                36673  2 nfsd,nfs
autofs4                57033  2 
sunrpc                197897  15 nfsd,auth_rpcgss,nfs,lockd,nfs_acl

# lsmod | grep fat

vfat                   46401  0 
fat                    85873  1 vfat
I did install samaba on the RH too.

any ideas?

Thanks

according to a couple of quick googles, -22 means an invalid argument. People on other forums seem to replace the hostname with an IP address and it works, few seem to know why though. Some others found installing the smbfs package on their ubuntu boxes made cifs work as expected with hostnames too.

Thanks Chris,

But replacing host with does not work either.

Now I get this:

Code:
 mount: //XX.XX.X.X/share/ is not a valid block device

and 
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6
Same command works like a charm on FC9.

well that's a different error code isn't it? Have you tried googling for that code?
