Description of problem:
When I try to map a drive via samba it tells me the kernel does not
support smbfs as mount points.
I have a SAN that needs to be able to mappable via a linux or windows
Without this feature I will cease to use Fedora in the future.
Perhaps it will be included in the final release of Fedora Core 2?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -t smbfs -o username=$user,password=$pass //SAN/gigaspace
Actual Results: I recieved an error stating that the kernel does not
support smbfs as mountpoints
Expected Results: I expected to be able to map to my SAN like I was
able to in Fedora Core 1.
could you try using cifs instead of smbfs ?
