Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1431
smbmount dosnt work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
I am running a dual box so I need linux 2.2.2.
I have updated redhat 5.2 with all the update rpms
includeing samba 2.0.2
samba 2.0.2 includes a copy of smbmount. The samba smbmount
is just smbclient renamed to smbmount. It does not allow
mounting of samba shares.
The copy of smbfs that comes with redhat 5.2 doesnt work
with linux 2.2.2
So the problem is that I can't mount the NT servers at work
to mount points making my job verry difficult.
I have the same problem.
the semantics of smbmount changed; to use it with the
new smbmont, you have to do something along the lines of:
smbmount "\\server\tmp" -c 'mount /mnt/sambashare'
See the man page for more details.
