Where does CIFS log failed mounts?


Hi,

I`m using cifs to mount a windows 2008 server share. I`m mounting it read only and using an rsync script which works quiet nice.

Recently I couldnt mount the windows share anymore, i didnt know the account iam using would go inactive if i never logged in.

Just where does cifs write a log if it can`t mount a windows share? If I knew where it is it would also be easier to find the reason if it doesn`t work.

Thx in advance

Hi there,

Look for the error message in /var/log/messages file.

Do: less /var/log/messages and look for CIFS related errors.
