Can a linux machine running samba mount a pathname within a share into a
local path? I'm runing samba-3.0.20b-1 on a centos 4.1 (rhel4) box.
I've tried this and it fails:
smbmount //servername/home/media /mnt/media/server/ -o
The error is:
8465: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid
When I omit the last portion of the service path it works just fine:
smbmount //servername/home /mnt/media/server/ -o
Trouble is, I don't want to mout the 'root' of the share, I want to mount a
subdirectory within it.
On a w2k box this syntax works fine: 'net use m: \\server\home\media' and
it properly mounts the path as the m: drive. I do recall that win9x boxes
could not mount subdirectories of shares. Is samba likewise crippled?
So what gives here? Can smbmount not mount from a pathname within a
service? Or am I missing the n necessary magical command line incantation?
