I have upgraded from a almost perfectly working Samba 2.2.8a to Samba 3.0.0, I wished to
join my NAS servers to the
domain and it seemed something to do with DNS authentication was stopping them from joining,
so I upgraded to Samba 3
I have searched the web for reasons for this stange behavior but could find no explaination
or fix, there are however
other people having the same problem.
I have two questions:
1) my smbfs commands in /etc/rc.local now hangs the consol when I reboot, needles to say
this did work before....
sometimes one or two or my smbfs commands will work without reason, I had to comment out the
smbfs commands so I could
test the reason for this behavior.
When I set log level = 3 ig get the following output when I run :
[root at cf root]# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/users /mnt/nas/users
mount.smbfs started (version 3.0.0)
added interface ip=10.0.0.100 bcast=10.0.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
added interface ip=127.0.0.1 bcast=127.255.255.255 nmask=255.0.0.0
resolve_lmhosts: Attempting lmhosts lookup for name core<0x20>
resolve_wins: Attempting wins lookup for name core<0x20>
resolve_wins: using WINS server 127.0.0.1 and tag '*'
Got a positive name query response from 127.0.0.1 ( 10.0.0.3 )
Connecting to 10.0.0.3 at port 445
Unless I press CTRL C the console will just hang their on Connecting to 10.0.0.3 at port
There are no errors in the /log/var/messages log that seem to suggest an error of any kind.
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/users /mnt/nas/users
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/backup /mnt/nas/backup
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/logon /mnt/nas/logon
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/source /mnt/nas/source
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //cores/quickbooks /mnt/nas/quickbooks
Does anyone know why this is happening and what to do about it
2) I wish to start using NFS mounts much the same way I was using smbfs mounts.
mount -t nfs 10.0.0.99:/backup /mnt/nas/backup
My problem is I seem not to be able to mount a NFS with a username and password, how can I
mount a remote volume with a
specific username and password.
Thanks for any help anyone can give
