oh shit...sorry! i forgot that you have to register to view OCAU...whoops...ok well a run down of whats happening...ive just installed Samba and when i go smbclient -L 192.168.0.200 i get this:

add interface ip=192.168.0.203 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
session request to 192.168.0.200 failed (Called name not present)
session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
password:

hopefully those errors don't mean all that much?? anway, i enter the password and it displays the shares..


now onto trying to view the damn things!!

somebody mentioned this:

mount -t smbfs -o username=yourusername,password=yourpassword //ipaddress/sharename /mnt/whateverdirectoryyouwanttomntitat

when i go mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=mahpassword //192.168.0.200/f$ /mnt/f it says this:

mount: mount point /mnt/f does not exist

so i went into /mnt and created the f folder then tried again and i get this error:

smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.0.200/f$, or too many mounted file systems


then sombody suggested:

ps -ae|grep smbd && ps -ae|grep nmbd

which should return something like

643 ? 00:00:00 smbd
537 ? 00:00:00 nmbd

if it didn't return that, he said try this: /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd && /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd

so i tried but mine returned

16249 ? 00:00:00 smbd
16251 ? 00:00:00 nmbd

so then it tried the /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd && /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd and tried the ps -ae|grep smbd && ps -ae|grep nmbd cmd again..it returned the same numbers/msg...so i just tried mounting it again but it still didn't work

any idea's???


Edit: im running RedHat 7.1

to use the the mount command with smbfs your kernel has to have support built in or a module loaded for smbfs.
What distro do you use?

Opps last line in your post.

Does RH7.1 ship with smbfs built into the default kernel?

Is the share f$ or is it F$ I looked on mine and the admin shares are all caps, Dont know if that matters.

mount -t smbfs -o username=<username> /192.168.1.***/C$ /test

Worked on my slack box(samba server) to connect to this win2k machine I'm typing on, that has no "shares" except for the admin shares. I rebuilt the kernel to include support for smbfs built in.

yeah somebody just said my kernel may not have support for smbfs in the thread at OCAU...what exactly is smbfs? just a samba program that allows viewing of shares??


is it possible to download the module needed for smbfs? oh wait...anythings possible with linux i hear

smbfs is support for windows network filesystem. Like vfat is support for fat32 and fat partitions. You may allready have the module on your system.

modprobe smbfs

modprobe will try to install a module, but you won't get any feedback if it succeeds. Type lsmod to see if it worked; the module should show up in the resulting list.

As lsmod shows you, smbfs is loaded already, so it's probably not a module issue.

Make sure that mount.smb and mount.smbfs both exist in /sbin. If they live somewhere else on your system, move them to /sbin.

ive done a search in the samba dir and /sbin dir but cannot find any files called mount.smb or mount.smbfs

i did a search on google for mount.smb and it didn't come up with a download location for these files...could somebody e-mail them to leighgardiner@hotmail.com please?

Grim Reaper,

I've already emailed you the following, but I'll post it here as well just to let the entire world know how off-base I am about this:

Quote:
Sorry for the lack of clarity in my post- /sbin/mount.smb and /sbin/mount.smbfs are both symlinks to /usr/bin/smbmount;
if they don't exist you can just create them:

ln -s /usr/bin/smbmount /usr/mount.smb
ln -s /usr/bin/smbmount /usr/mount.smbfs

I'm not sure if this is the root of your problem, but the links in /sbin are apparently necessary for at least some versions of samba and/or smbfs.

Samba mount problems

I had the same error:
kernel: smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported

I am using suse 9.0 for AMD64 and had upgraded from the supplied
Samba 2.2.8 rpm to a compiled 3.0.2 tarball. I checked the original
rpms and found that there was a file /sbin/mount.smbfs which was
not in the 3.0.2 install. I softlinked this to smbmount and can mount
mount shares.
