Subject: [Samba] problems mounting smbfs
I've spent the last 2 days trying to get smbfs to mount via fstab.
Using redhat 7.3 and the latest samba as of 7/17/02.
I can mount from the command line using smbmount as follows:
smbmount //localhost/wwwshare /smbwww -o username=smbuser,password=xxxxxxxx
I can not mount from the command line using:
mount -t smbfs -o username=smbuser,password=xxxxxxxx //localhost/wwwshare
The following error is returned when trying to use the 'mount' command as
execvp of smbmnt failed. Error was No such file or directory.smbmnt failed:
Consequently, I have not been able to auto mount in fstab using
//localhost/wwwshare /smbwww smbfs username=smbuser,password=xxxxxxxx 0 0
as a sanity check the following command is successful as well:
smbclient //localhost/wwwshare -U smbuser
Am I missing something simple?
Am I going nuts?
Any and all input is very much appreciated!
