script (to mount smb) doesn't run from rc.local and only works on some machines


Ok so I have a script which runs a few other scripts (in subfolders of the first script) in order to mount some unix/linux shares) Anyway, when I run the file from rc.local and try to pipe the output into a file the file is empty and the shares are not mounted. however when I run the file it mounts everything.... any ideas?

Also, the script doesn't work on my wireless clients... any ideas?

rc.local excerpt:
<CODE>
touch /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog
echo "start">>/tmp/bootupmount.errorlog
/var/lib/mythtv/mountscript-ALL.j > /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog
echo "end" > /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog.jake
</CODE>

mountscript-all:
<CODE>
/var/lib/mythtv/music/mountscript.j
/var/lib/mythtv/pictures/mountscript.j
/var/lib/mythtv/videos/mountscript.j
</CODE>

videos/mountscript.j (all same script):
<CODE>
mount b1:/var/lib/mythtv/videos/b1 /var/lib/mythtv/videos/b1
mount b2:/var/lib/mythtv/videos/b2 /var/lib/mythtv/videos/b2
</CODE>

When I run mountscript-ALL.j they all mount fine, in RC.local they don't

Also, doesn't work on third box says
<CODE>
mount.nfs: internal error
</CODE>

and the /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog is an empty file with correct timestamp

Try using the full path for the mount command in the
videos/mountscript.j script.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/mount b1:/var/lib/mythtv/videos/b1 /var/lib/mythtv/videos/b1
/bin/mount b2:/var/lib/mythtv/videos/b2 /var/lib/mythtv/videos/b2
Also change the rc.local script to include:
Code:
touch /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog
echo "start">>/tmp/bootupmount.errorlog
/var/lib/mythtv/mountscript-ALL.j >> /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog 2>&1
echo "end" >> /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog

Do you have an entry in /etc/hosts for these servers?

I do not, I was relying on the dns of the router.... there are no entries in /etc/hosts for any of my boxes on any of my boxes...

try running nslookup from each machine and see if one machine is using a different nameserver or returning different information.

Did you get any error messages in /tmp/bootupmount.errorlog after making the changes to the rc.local script?

<CODE>
/var/lib/mythtv/mountscript-ALL.j & >>/tmp/bootupmount.errorlog 2>&1 &
</CODE>

and I get no output (manual run mount.nfs internal error), nslookup uses same address however I get different IPs from wired and wireless clients (I looks like that might be my routers DNS server I really don't know though....?).... so it must be my routers DNS? its dd-wrt, so its linux... I have ssh access to it if there's a way that will help fix it?

I looked at the www.dd-wrt.com website, however the only documentation you can download is German (and my knowledge of German is nowhere near good enough to try reading something technical)

They do have a forum (in multiple languages) it may be worth asking the question there.

Sorry I couldn't help, not sure why you get an empty logfile, the code looks right to me.

Thank you very much!! I've also looked through their docs and forums as well as posted it there saying that my wireless dns doesn't work, so I'm just kinda waiting for a response...
