Samba: Cannot open Credentials file on startup


I am having problems with Samba on my rh9 machine. I cannot see the other machines on my network from the rh9 machine, but can the other way round On boot up it fails to mount my samba drives with the error: Cannot open credentials file. I added, edited and deleted some users just before this problem started.

Any pointers on where to look?

Take a look at /etc/fstab. There must be an entry starting with smbmount containing the user under which you mount the shares. I guess you have deleted him and that's why samba complains.

Offcourse. It has been such a long time since I set up my samba that I had forgotten how it all works. My credential files were missing and had to recreate. All fine now.
