  1. [all variants] Re: mount error: could not resolve address for Diskstation: Unknown error

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    Bab1: I tried your commands but they didn't work out. Here are the commands and the output:



    ls -ld /media/phoenix
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root sambashare...

    So I tried this before mounting:

    sudo touch /media/phoenix/test.txt

    ls -la /media/phoenix/
    total 8

    Just realised this is probably what you meant I should run:

    Unmounted:


    ls -la /media/phoenix/
    total 8
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov 12 23:25 .
    drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Nov 12 23:25...

    Well I don't think any mounting is actually taking place. This is what I did: I commented out the line I added to my fstab file. Then I restarted the computer. Then I ran:


    ls la /media/phoenix...

    Yes, if I type smb://phoenix/hitachi for example on the location field in a folder explorer window in Ubuntu (not sure if that's nautilus or gnome, but it's the default thing it comes with Ubunt)...

    Here's the output from these commands on phoenix:



    amguerra@phoenix:~$ nmblookup phoenix
    querying phoenix on 192.168.1.63
    192.168.1.15 phoenix<00>

    I've placed the [hitachi] share at the end as indicated.



    Well, I'm the only person who uses that machine, so I just wanted to *make sure that only my username can connect to the server*. I...

    Hi,



    So this is the command I run and the error I get:


    sudo mount -t cifs //PHOENIX/hitachi /media/phoenix
    mount error: could not resolve address for PHOENIX: Unknown error
  10. [all variants] Re: mount error: could not resolve address for Diskstation: Unknown error

    Hi bab1,

    Thanks for your help. Now I think I understand a little bit better how this works. I read the other thread you pointed to and yes, it looks like my problem is more similar to the one...
  11. [all variants] Re: mount error: could not resolve address for Diskstation: Unknown error

    Hello,

    I have exactly this same problem. However, I do find it hard to believe that I must have a local DNS server OR that I edit the /etc/hosts file in order to make it work. It just sounds way...

    Hello,

    I'm also having this issue. Also found the overlay scrollbars difficult to use, so I removed them but now the scrollbar doesn't have the scroll buttons and I do need them. Also, the shade...
