Question called name not present. RHEL -> W7.

Hello we recently migrated a Windows XP file server to Windows 7. Now we're struggling to map to the drive from RedHat.

[root@lynx etc]# mount -t smbfs -o username=database,password=database // /home/ftpupload.kv_users/config/ftp
4435: session request to failed (Called name not present)
4435: session request to 10 failed (Called name not present)
4435: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
SMB connection failed
[root@lynx etc]#
Any ideas? We can map the drive on the W7 box from a Windows XP box.

Disable Firewall and SeLinux.

Then try cifs instead of smbfs.

This example will help you:

mount -t cifs // /mnt/data -o username=Administrator
Its not a schoolboy error "Spuddy" even IP works.


mount, redhat, smbfs, windows7
