Nice tutorials. before reading them I couldn't get any connection to speak of. Currently I am able to use
to connect. (it asks for a password, which I enter and gain access)
smbclient //ourserver.domain.com/shares -U myusername
The Places > Connect to Server... and the mount methods don't work though.
Any ideas on why one works, but not the other?
$ sudo mount -t cifs //ourserver.domain.com/shares /media/shares -o username=myusername
retrying with upper case share name
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Relevant lines from config files.
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] wins dns mdns4
In part of my earlier testing, I got this bit of information about the server:
workgroup = OURGROUP
netbios name = myhostname
name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host
I am using Ubuntu 10.04
Domain=[OURGROUP] OS=[Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 7600] Server=[Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 6.1]
Note: I did sanitize the domain/hostnames/usernames above, but the styles should match
