Fedora Networking :: When Try To Mount The Share To A Different Directory On The Server, Receive A 'no Such Directory' Error?
Dec 18, 2010
I have a server with Fedora 13 with which I would like to get NFS working. I have looked up multiple howto's and tutorials, but I'm having a problem not addressed by any of them.Official how-to, another how-to, and another how-to.I have verified that nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, portmap, and system-config-nfs are installed and running. I have verified that I have, in fact, shared the directory that I want to share, and that the proper permissions are set.
I had to go through some gyrations to get the Belkin wireless N router to allow my server to have a static IP. However, I can ping the server from the nfs client (a toshiba satellite running mint 8), and vice versa. I have (for now) disabled firewalls on both computers. I think I have disabled SELinux on Fedora 13 (for now).When I attempt to connect to the server from the client, the output looks like this:Quote:
aragorn ~ # mount -v 192.168.2.101:/test /home/kelev/test/
mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sat Dec 18 12:21:09 2010
It's been awhile since I posted anything which is a good sign my install has been working well and I have been able to handle most everything. However, I'm not able to handle this issue. I recently installed F11 and everything went well. But, when trying to see my other computers on the local network, I cannot. I receive this error message: Unable to mount location Failed to receive shared list from server. I understand the message as it is obvious, but do not know how to fix it.
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
I have a bootable utility toolset that I put together with Fedora 14, one of its primary functions is to map a user designated share via script and access information from it. The command that I used, that functioned perfectly, in Fedora 14 was:
Code: sudo mount -t cifs -o user=provided.account.name //file-server.mydomain.com/share/images /mnt/source
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
Recently I mounted a larger partition into my home directory since I was running out of space, Everything went smoothly, but it caused me to wonder about something I cant figure out. While playing with the mount unmount commands when I was copying everything over... before editing my fstab.
Is there a way to access the files that existed in a directory before you mount a partition to that directory? after mount the original files are gone.unmount and they are back, Where do they go?
I have Ubuntu Karmic. I chose to install with an encrypted home directory. Recently I got a warning that I only had 2GB of drive space left. This is mostly because of my videos. So I went and bought a new hard drive and partitioned it and made 1 ext4 partition and copied my videos all to the new hard drive. I added a line in my fstab to mount the new hard drive to ~/videos, but when I reboot the computer, there is a screen saying something like "error mounting /home/me/videos, press S to skip or something else to reboot". If I press S to skip, then when my system comes up there is a video directory but it's empty because my other hard drive didn't get mounted. I can run sudo mount /dev/sdb video/ and it will mount fine and I can see all my videos, so why can't fstab mount it? Does this have something to do with my encrypted home directory?
I'd like to mount the directory /var/www/mysite to the directory /home/daniel/mysite, but also have the user of the mounted files mapped from the original user (www-data) to my own user (daniel). So that the file /var/www/mysite/index.php who's user is www-data will appear in the mounted directory as /home/daniel/mysite/index.php and be owned by daniel - and alternatively, if I create a file /home/daniel/mysite/test.php with my own user, it will be created in the original directory under the user www-data Is it possible? If not, what alternatives do I have so I can use an IDE and still make sure all the files belong to the HTTP server's user?
I want to share a same directory so that it can be accessed by both Linux clients & windows clients. how can i do this? i want to share that directory with both NFS & samba services. Is it possible to do this?
On our fileserver, we primary use samba to share files to our users, but a few users have to use ssh/sftp to access the file server. In samba we have the shares setup so that permissions are forced to be the correct group owner and group read/write. The problem is those few who access via ssh/sftp. There files do not have the correct permissions. These people are not the most computer savvy, I'm dealing with biologist here. Is there some way to fix this or will I just have to setup a cron job to go through and set permissions periodically?
We currently have a NFS shared Directory mounted as read-only on our server.This directory contains multiple sub-directories and files. It being read-only is a equirement. Now, we need a directory underneath to be read-write. Is there a graceful way to make that happen? Like a special mount option to use? Basically objective is: /u01 is mounted as read-only and has 3 directories: dir1, dir2, dir3 dir3 has 2 sub-directories- sub1,sub2/u01/dir3/sub2 needs to be read-write, while all other are read-only.
What is the magic that needs to be done to be able to record in audacity?
- Fedora 15 x86_64 18.104.22.168-88.fc14.x86_64 - SoundBlaster X-Fi card. -I have added rpmfusion to yum repos.
When I start audacity the following is printed to the concole:
Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory Cannot connect to server socket jack server is not running or cannot be started Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653
Well, I am facing problem when doing lab questions.
I must use DLXLinux bundled in Bochs (bochs.sourceforge.net).
I am required to use the /usr/local directory.
In /usr directory, there is no directory named 'local' but there is one thing called 'local@'. So, when I try to use mkdir command to create 'local' directory in /usr , there are error "cannot make directory.....".
Code: mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900': No such file or directory bash: /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900/tasks: No such file or directory bash: /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900/notify_on_release: No such file or directory It seems like it's probably from this part of .bashrc:
What does this code do, why, and what's causing it to go wrong?
I got 9.10 on by laptop and xp on other computer. Installed samba server and xp recognized my laptop but not anything I share on ubuntu. am i missing something in samba config file? Im trying to share home directory on ubuntu and both systems have the same login id.
I'm having a problem with Active Directory and Share permissions that I cant seem to figure out. I used likewise-open to join my ubuntu server to a windows 2008 domain. Everything seems to be working fine. The problem is, the only way I can access the shares is if I CHMOD 777 the share directory. If I CHMOD 770, the Domain owner or Domain group member of the directory cant access the directory. Also, when creating a folder within the share, I need to set the directory mask as 777 in order to enter those sub folders.
I have a SAN drive space connected to a SLES 10 (OES2) server. The server sees the drive at /dev/sdb1, and I was able to use fdisk to create a partition on it. I created a new directory /mnt/testvol, where I would like to mount the SAN drive to. Fdisk shows the volume to be at /dev/sdb1 and lists it as Linux filesystem.
I used this command to try to mount it: mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/testvol -t nfs and I get this error: mount: directory to mount not in host:dir format
My network has several machines on it. They are all connected to a single router. Two of the machines are running Windows Vista, one Windows XP and one Fedora 11. When I go to places.network, I see an icon that says Windows Network. If I click on it, I get the message: Unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server. When I had Ubuntu running on this machine, I had no problem seeing and connecting to the Windows Vista machine.
i have a suse 11.3 machine and i cannot set it to be a NFS server that is i cannot mount a directory of this machine on another one running as well a 11.3 while i can mount without problem a directory from 10.0.i do not know where to start as the NFS server option seems to have vanished from YAST.
I've mucked through and figured out how to mount a windows share. I can access the folders I was looking for, but the windows share was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for the specific shared folder. Instead I got a root level parent directory that included the folder I wanted, and a couple others.
smbclient -L <ipaddress> gives me a parent directory on the root
First question: Can I mount a specific folder within a share? Second question: Could somebody define share? I thought it was the specific shared folder, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
when I connect my iphone (3GS, 4.3.3) to Fedora 15 it gives me this error: Unable to mount iphone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus). The weird thing: after looking in var/log/messages it appears that it is trying to be used by NetworkManager. And when I lookin NM, i can see iPhone as an ethernet device (cable unplugged).
Okay, so on occasion when I boot into ubuntu I get this error
[mount: mounting /dev /root/dev failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/sys failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/proc failed: no such file or directory]
I get the error when I open any of the kernel versions or any recovery mode. Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop is the only OS installed on the computer, which is a Lenovo S10-3. I can eventually get it to go away, sometimes by repeatedly unplugging it and plugging it back in, and sometimes I will boot into GParted, do nothing, then restart and it will work.I have found some solutions online, but all of them involve the error happening as a result of dual booting with Windows.I have made no major system changes recently, so I can't see anything like that being the problem.
I m having a RHEL-5 sever.ABC directory size is 57GB after taking backup in the same disk with name ABC.bkp showing 56GB. i used below command to copy/backup. # cp -r ABC ABC.bkp (different sizes after copying)..I checked both the directory sizes by #du -sh <ABC> and du -ks <ABC.bkp>In both GB and KB there is lots of difference (200mb). why this will happen in copying? what is the solution for above question? what is the correct way of copying 1dir to newdir exactly?
