Mounting Samba Shares via console (Newbie)


Hi all,

im having trouble getting mandrake to mount my samba shares through the console, here is what i have tried

(the NT share is \\server1\newhome on domain swhschool.local)

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator, password=mypw \\server1 \newhome

also;

mount -t smbfs -o domain. swhschool.local username=administrator, password=mypw \\server1 \newhome

its just tells me it cannot resolve the \\NewHome mount point (its definitely there, so im guessing its a syntax error)

any help would be appreciated

It seems to me, you have syntax error.

Try

mount -t smbfs -o username=YOURUSER,password=YOURPASSWORD //YOURSERVER/SHARE /newhome

Linux makes difference between uppercase and lowercase so newhome and NewHome are not the same

Below are some examples that may help:

NOTE: The password is enclosed in single quotes since it has a embedded $ sign.

smbclient //ldowns/share -U mydomain/ldowns%'my$passwrd'

or

smbclient //ldowns/WebTest -U mydomain/ldowns

-- you will have to manually enter the password

or

Create user.info with:

username = ldowns
password = my$passwrd
domain = mydomain

and use:

smbclient //ldowns/WebTest -A user.info



or to do a normal mount

as root

mount -t smbfs -o username=ldowns,password='my$passwrd' //ldowns/share /home/downslj/mountdir

as normal user

smbmount //ldowns/WebTest mountdir/ -o credentials=user.info

smbmount //tutor1/migrate mountdir/ -o credentials=user.info

smbmount //tutor1/Convert mountdir/ -o credentials=user.info,fmask=666

smbmount //gph-fascor/D mountdir/ -o credentials=user.info,fmask=666

smbmount //ldowns/share mountdir/ -o credentials=user.info,fmask=666

smbmount //ldowns/share mountdir/ -o username=ldowns/mydomain%'my$passwrd',fmask=666

NOTE: The hostname must resolve. I tried using the IP address but it didn't work. I added the hostname to /etc/hosts and it worked!!
