Question mounting shared windows drives unexpected.tdb

When I try to mount windows shares on my linux box I get the following error.

tdb<<null>>: tdb)open_ex: could not open file /var/cache/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory

tdb<<null>>: tdb)open_ex: could not open file /var/cache/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory

tdb<<null>>: tdb)open_ex: could not open file /var/cache/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory

What should I do to fix this.

Hmmmm... Weird... Have you tried accessing the share using smbclient?

Also, be sure to check out the SAMBA documentation at, there may be some pointers there on troubleshooting...

Good luck!
