Unable to mount cifs network share in redhat 7
 
This is my output of the fstab file.

Code:


[root@APPIASRV ~]# cat /etc/fstab | grep cifs
ftp://172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA /mnt/my_temp_data cifs username=ftp_admin,password=password,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

when I trying to mount from mount -a, it will show below message.

Code:


[root@APPIASRV ~]# mount -a
mount.cifs: bad UNC (ftp://172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA)

do anyone know what can be the reason ?

Ask redhat people. You are either paying them or wanted to become one of their valued paying customers because you run their OS.

I dont have RHEL subscription for that. this is my test environment.

Appreciate if anyone can help me on this.

Code:

ftp://172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA /mnt/my_temp_data cifs username=ftp_admin,password=password,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
The correct syntax for mounting a samba share is:
Code:

//172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA /mnt/my_temp_data cifs username=ftp_admin,password=password,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

Thanks michaelk.

But when I used "ftp:" its giving below message.

Code:

[root@APPIASRV ~]# cat /etc/fstab | grep cifs
//172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA /mnt/my_temp_data cifs username=ftp_admin,password=thambapanni,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

[root@APPIASRV ~]# mount -a
Unable to find suitable address.
[root@APPIASRV ~]#

Have you configured the firewall in 172.18.41.70 to allow CIFS traffic.

You might want to consider using CentOS 7 instead of Redhat.

kkrrss 08-28-2016 07:23 AM

I have allowed all traffic to FTP server from praticuler server. but problem is same :(

Any ideas ?

And what FTP has to do with this?

michaelk 08-28-2016 07:41 AM

I agree. ftp and cifs are different protocols. cifs is for mounting windows shares. What are you trying to accomplish?

The file manager can access a ftp site via ftp:// using its built in virtual file systems but the same can not be used in fstab or the command line.

It is possible to install additional packages to mount a ftp site as a "regular" file system but with out a subscription you can not do it using Redhat.

Code:


I know nothing do with FTP. only i need to fix below matter.

[root@APPIASRV ~]# mount -a
mount.cifs: bad UNC (ftp://172.18.41.70/MY_TEMP_DATA)

For CIFS you need to open ports 13<something>, look it up.

One quick search lead me to multiple blogs with the solution

https://snippets.khromov.se/mount-ft...nux-as-folder/

But as already said above the one BIG problem on working with Red Hat without subscription is you will not have access to global yum repositories. Although you might create a local yum repository with the packages available in the DVD.

Thanks a lot Deep27ak.

This was helpful to me and solved my problem.
