Angry SMB connection failed....


This linxu box does a nightly backup to the /home/pick/fstape directory. I want to copy this directory to a remote share on a windows box so that it can be backed up.

This was working before I swapped out the windows server. I've attempted to re-enable all services (TCPip, Distributed file system, original host name and ip address) but I am still getting the above error at the linux box. What else can I do to get volume to mount? Im typing "mount -t smb //servername/share /home/pick/fstape -o username=xxx,password=xxxxxx"

Hello taujamar,

Not sure why this error appears. You may want to try to add the "workgroup" or "domain" parameter.
Code:
mount -t smb //server/share /mountpoint -ousername=xxx,password=yyy,workgroup=zzz
Also you could try CIFS instead of SMBFS
Code:
mount -t cifs //server/share  /mountpoint -ousername=xxx,password=yyy,workgroup=zzz
Hope this helps.
