Problem with VMware not connecting to a share
 
I am trying to connect my VMware ESX server (RH kernel) to a shared windows drive so that I can run backups. When I try to mount the shared drive I get this message

[root@wcatlvms2 root]# mount /vmsnapshot
mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused


and when I try to use samba I get this response

[root@wcatlvms2 root]# smbmount //10.100.1.189/Vmsnapshot /vmsnapshot
Could not resolve mount point /vmsnapshot


Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or suggest something else to try

Probably one of your cron jobs deleted the directory /vmsnapshot. Some distributions includes the file .keep to make sure the directory that you created is still there when certain scripts finds a directory that should not be there.
