I'm trying to mount a samba share located on one Linux server to another
samba server for backup purposes. The problem im running into is that i
get an error stating:
couldn't find service <share I am specifying>
Here is what im attempting:
One server #1 sambaserver, Where I want the share to be mounted for
smbmount //valhalla/backupdir /backuparea/valhalla
If im correct, im specifying valhalla (server #2) and backupdir (which
is the share i created and specified inside smb.conf.
Once I do that, enter the password, I get the error:
Apr 12 13:41:16 valhalla smbd: sambaserver (192.168.1.51)
couldn't find service backupdir/
Its right on the tip of my tongue, but its escaping me.
Anyone have any suggestions?
