Thread: 11.2M5 mount -t cifs terribly slow

  1. #1

    Default 11.2M5 mount -t cifs terribly slow

    I used command as followings. nothing special.

    mount -t cifs //192.168.55.53/windows$/Home /mnt/ -o user=username%password

    It works well after mounted. But mounting itself takes 1-2 minutes terribly.
    After mounted successfully, file transfer speed looks to be normal.

    Default Samba: mount -t cifs terribly slow

    I used command as followings. nothing special.

    mount -t cifs //192.168.55.53/windows$/Home /mnt/ -o user=username%password

    It works well after mounted. But mounting itself takes 1-2 minutes terribly.

    How to fix slow mount?

    i do not know why, but your format is very different from those given
    in a set of how-tos by a well respected member of this forum
    ("swerdna")...he offers several different incantation, for different
    purposes, this is for a temporary mount, all on one line:

    mount -t cifs -o username=server_user,password=server_password
    //192.168.44.100/share_name /path_to/mount_point

    see his more general samba offerings in the upper left quadrant of
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/index.html

    where google couldn't find a single instance of "mount.cifs" when
    using this search string:
    sitepensuse.swerdna.org "mount.cifs"

    I'am trying mount -t cifs //192.168.55.53/windows$ /mnt -o user=username,password=password
    And I get the same result still very long mounting.

    About mount.cifs: From manpage mount:
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Mount options for cifs
    See the options section of the mount.cifs(8) man page (cifs-mount pack-
    age must be installed)
    --------------------------------------------------------

    about format of username from manpage mount.cifs:
    --------------------------------------------------------
    user=arg
    specifies the username to connect as. If this is not given, then
    the environment variable USER is used. This option can also take
    the form "user%password" or "workgroup/user" or
    "workgroup/user%password" to allow the password and workgroup to be
    specified as part of the username.

    i can't help you, sorry...but perhaps some other can if you include
    some more info...like

    the system/version/update status in use on the MS machine, and the one
    you are sending from...and, how are you connected..

    do you have a network sniffer to see if the delay is caused by a
    delayed response from the distant machine...or is the slowness
    entirely in your machine? (you say 1 - 2 minutes, was it ever 1 - 2
    seconds?)

    have you had this problem all along, or did it follow the last kernel
    update, etc? like: have you made any changes to the network settings
    on either maching? DNS changes? router setup changes?

    have you tried it after booting from a Live CD? what have you tried
    which didn't bring happiness?

    Use --verbose flag and post the results here (exclude any IP addresses or potentially user-identifiable information).

    It should output debug information that may prove useful to solving what it's trying to do (for example negociate NTLMv2 security).

    I tried it

    lnxvrxstd:/home/xvirex # mount.cifs //192.168.0.52/share$ /mnt -o user=virex%virex_password --verbose
    parsing options: user=virex%virex_password

    mount.cifs kernel mount options unc=//192.168.0.52\share$,pass=virex_password,ver=1,user=virex,,,,,,,,,,,
    [here we waiting 3 min 10 sec, after that we get console and mounted share]
    lnxvrxstd:/home/xvirex # ls -la /mnt
    итого 1560885
    drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Авг 25 00:24 .
    drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Авг 25 09:59 ..
    -rwxrwSrwx 1 root root 0 Авг 19 17:27 AUTOEXEC.BAT
    -r-xr-Sr-x 1 root root 4952 Апр 15 2008 Bootfont.bin
    ......


    If i try to mount guest share on other it is gone ok

    lnxvrxstd:/home/xvirex # mount.cifs //192.168.0.3/exchange /mnt --verbose
    Password: (here i just put enter)

    mount.cifs kernel mount options unc=//192.168.0.3\exchange,user=root,pass=,ver=1

    lnxvrxstd:/home/xvirex # ls -la /mnt
    итого 4
    drwxrwxrwx 13 21 root 0 Авг 24 16:48 .
    drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Авг 25 09:59 ..
    drwxrwxrwx 5 21 root 0 Авг 24 16:48 Ethernet
    drwxrwxrwx 3 21 root 0 Авг 22 13:36 Games

    [It work fine without delay]

    In this case 192.168.0.3 - is FreeBSD with Samba, 192.168.0.52 - Windows XP SP3 without firewall with Guest user

    If same doing trought the konqueror
    string smb://virex@192.168.0.52/share$
    then connection is up during 1 min 10 sec
