Thread: Whither smbmount?

  1. #1

    Default Whither smbmount?

    openSuse v11.1

    What has replaced "smbmount"?

    I have been slogging through the samba installation learning how to access resources on a remote server. I went to mount a drive with smbmount only to find that the application does not exist in the current installation.

    ~> smbclient --version
    Version 3.2.7-11.3.2-2154-SUSE-CODE11

    try:
    mount.cifs

    see: man mount.cifs for the details.

    mount error(112): Host is down

    The server is an old os/2 system. It probably does not support CIFS. smbclient has no problem accessing the server.

    What is an alternative to mount.cifs or smbmount that would mount the resource?

    openSUSE v11.1 will mount using cifs:
    Code:
    mount -t cifs -o username=abc,password=xyz //192.168.44.100/share /path_to/mount

    Filling with the locally appropriate data:

    mount -t cifs -o username=abc,password=xyz //192.168.44.100/share /path_to/mount

    yields:
    mount error(112): Host is down

    Can you browse to the share from this computer using Nautilus or Konqueror?

    Can you browse to the share from this computer using Nautilus or Konqueror?
    I do not know what you are asking. Using the "My Computer" link I can view the "Network Services" which has a pseudo-protocol of "remote:/". I can then list all of the servers which has the "smb://" protocol. From there I can select and access a share on the target server, <sma-server1>.

    I can list the shares on the server using <smbclient -L //sma-server1>, and access a share using <smbclient //sma-server1/pub-data -A ...>.

    What do you get when you run this command: smbtree -N?
    sma-server1 is the host I am trying access.

    Code:
    ~> smbtree -N
    WORKGROUP
    SOHNEN-MOE
        \\SMASTN1
            \\SMASTN1\ADMIN$                Remote Admin
            \\SMASTN1\IPC$                  Remote IPC
        \\SMA-STATION2
        \\SMA-SERVER1

    What kind of server is sma-server1

    What access / authorisation is required there?

    Have you installed cifs (probably that's a "yes")?

    os/2 server v4.52 (MCP)

    Username and Password.

    Yes. Unlike smbfs it came as part of the kernel.
