Description Wes Armour 2005-11-08 15:26:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I have an entry in my /etc/fstab that allows me to mount a windows share, it goes like:

//<windows server>/<user>$ /mnt/windows/ smbfs username=<user>/<domain>,uid=<user>,gid=<user>,user,noauto 0 0

With user being my user name and domain being the domain.

I can do a:

mount /mnt/windows

from the cmi and it asks me for my windows passwd, providing I get this correct it mounts without problems.

If I click on the computer icon on my desktop and them windows I get:

Unable to mount the selected volume.

SMB connection failed

Could this be fixed so that nautilus requests your windows passwd???

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As above.


Actual Results:  Drive doesn't mount

Expected Results:  A box asking for a passwd would be nice like when you use 
file->connect to server 
for example.

This is unlikely to be fixed for RHEL4, but it should be in gnome 2.14 I believe
(at least some forms of passwords on mounts are supported). Gnome 2.14 is going
into FC5 so I'm closing this RAWHIDE, it'll be in RHEL5.
