Hi all,

I've got a strange issue with a smb mount I've performed.... I have four
Servers, all running the Samba version of Samba, all built from the same
script files! So they are pretty much the same! :)

I've written a script to mount a drive on each in turn and copy some files
to them. The file is copied from the first two machines okay, but on the
third, I get a rw error!

The mount command I'm using is:

mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=password //

I've tried copying files to this mount manually, it's not having it at

Anybody know what I've done wrong? Why just this one machine?!! Is there
something wrong with my mount command?

cheers for any help!
