Mount Windows 2003 Shares


First off, I'm a linux newbie. I've tried to do this on the latest release of both Mepis & Xandros. Here is my problem:

I'm trying to add a linux workstation to my windows domain. I can see shares on the workstations & mount them without a problem. I can also browse the shares on the domain controller (windows 2003 server), and even copy files from there. However I can't mount any of the shares.

I've tried various things from various web pages (all seem to edit the smb.conf), but I haven't had any success. If anyone has gotten this working on either of those distros, or is able to help me I'd appreciate it.

So you are trying to mount a samba share and it isn't working?

Maybe I have the terminology wrong. The files I want to access are on a Windows 2003 Server. I have shares on that server in those directories.

On my linux box, I want to mount this share. I can browse to it using Samba. However when I select the option to mount it, Mepis gives me an error, and Xandros keeps requesting the password over and over again. The login/password I'm using is the Windows domain admin.

If you are mounting a share on the linux computer, then the command to use is:

mount -t smbfs //IP_address/share_name -o username=username,password=password,rw /mnt/share

You might have to be root to do the above.

Basically the username and the password are those on the Windows server. For example, if you are trying to mount:

//10.0.0.1/MarquisEXB , then you will need to enter the
MarquisEXB useranem and password.

you may also have to specify the domain of the domain controller:
Code:
mount -t smbfs //IP_address/share_name -o workgroup=workgroup,username=username,password=password,rw /mnt/share

The error I get in Mepis:

Code:
cli_negprot: SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it.
5199: protocol negotiation failed
SMB connection failed

BTW - That error was for the second command, not the first.

SMB requires signing

Not sure if Samba has a fix for this, but Windows 2003 server by default has a policy set to require SMB signing. This can be disabled on the 2003 server (of course Microsoft recommends not doing this), this is a big issue with multifunction devices that use SMB to scan to network shares.
