General :: Mount Remote Samba Share In Fstab?

Nov 19, 2009

Server: Ubuntu Server Edition 8.04
/currently firewalled to only allow client ip
Client: Ubuntu Desktop 8.04
/currently firewalled to only allow server ip

Same userid and groups set up on on both. I have taken two linux courses and can maneuver around fairly well, but am still pretty newbie at all this. We have loaded Samba on a server and created a Samba share. I AM able to access that share via Windows Vista, but have not been able to successfully mount the share on the Ubuntu desktop via the fstab file. I have tried the following ways: serverip:/path/shareddirectory /net ext3 user,sync 0 0 and the samba way..

//serverip/sharename /net smbfs username=x,password=x

After modifying fstab, I reboot. No luck since that either way.Only ONCE after modifying it samba way, I was prompted to enter credentials, but after login I was unable to view the files on the server. From this point on either way, if I run commmand 'mount -a' the response is "Special device serverip:/path/sharedirectory does not exist" Also! I am able to ping client-to-server, but not server-to-client.

Ubuntu :: Samba Share Mounting - From 'mount' To Fstab

Mar 21, 2010

I have a command line that mounts the disk of my mobile

Code:

It works, but there is a problem with it. Every folder and file has root:root ownership, so I am unable to change anything. Even when I change permissions manually, it does not work.

Now, I want to move this to fstab but have no idea how an fstab line should look like. Obviously, I want to also have rw access to the disk.

General :: How To Mount Remote Samba Share From Local Host With Multiple Groups

May 6, 2010

I am using mount.cifs to mount a remote samba share (both client and server are Ubuntu server 8.04) like this:mount.cifs //sambaserver/samba /mountpath -o credentials=/path/.credentials,uid=someuser,gid=1000.I mounted a user from local system with username and password with mount.cifs but the problem is that the user is part of multiple groups on the remote system and with mount.cifs I can only specify one gid. Is there a way to specify all the gids that the remote user has?

Mount the remote samba with multiple groups on the local system?Browse the mount from 1) with the terminal since I want to pass some files from samba as arguments to local programs.which runs through gvfs; but the newer gnome does not write to disk the ~/.gvfs anymore so I can't browse it in terminal. And the last solution would be NFS but that means that I have to synchronize the uids and gids on the local system with the ones from the server.

Server :: Can Mount WinXP Share But Not Win7 Share In Fstab

Jun 8, 2010

this has happened in different distros, so far i have tried slack, arch, and mint at work i have an xp box with a shared folder i created. on my linux box i setup fstab as follows

Code:

//winxp/temp$ /home/user/temp cifs rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,credentials=/home/user/.creds 0 0

this gets mounted correctly and i can read/write the shared folder at home i have a win7 box that i create a share on and use the exact same code in fstab, but it wont mount the share. i get something like permission denied or access denied is there a difference in how winxp and win7 share folders? my usernames on the linux boxes match those of my windows boxes at each location. i have given my win accounts full access and control over the win shares.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share : Get An Error Message "unable To Mount Location, Failed To Mount Windows Share"?

Jan 22, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Mount NAS Share In Fstab?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a router that supports NAS; that is, you can plug a USB drive directly into the router, and it becomes a Windows share. I can manually mount the NAS share and use it properly. But, I would like to have it automatically mount on startup. The main reason for this is to assign it a proper mount point so that I can access it from the command line, since I'm having trouble doing that after I mount it manually.

To mount it manually, I go to Places > Connect to Server, select the "Windows Share" service type, and enter "//192.168.1.1/USB_Storage" as the server name. The server name is supposed to be "//readyshare/USB_Storage," but that does not work, so I used the IP address.

I would like to mount this drive at /mnt/readyshare. So, I followed (I thought) the instruction in this document. I created the directory /mnt/readyshare I assigned myself a samba password with smbpsswd I created a group "readyshare" with the GID 1010 I created a .smbcredentials file in my home directory I modified my /etc/fstab file.The .smbcredentials file reads:

Code:

username=<my username>
password=<the password I created with smbpsswd

The line I added to my /etc/fstab is:

Code:

//192.168.1.1/USB_Storage /mnt/readyshare smbfs iocharset=utf8,credentials=/home/<my username>/.smbcredentials,dir_mode=0775,gid=1010 0 0

But, no dice. The share does not mount.What am I doing wrong?

Server :: Fstab - NFS Share To Mount Automatically

Apr 13, 2011

On a production server, I want an NFS share to mount automatically. What is the best practice to use?

[Code]...

My understanding is that it is always best practice to use IP addresses in the fstab because the server will fail to mount the share upon booting if DNS is unavailable. I've also been told that if one MUST use names in the fstab, there should be a hosts file entry for it so that the server doesn't depend on DNS on boot.

Ubuntu :: Add A Line To Fstab To Mount A Share On Every Boot?

I'm trying to add a line to fstab to mount a share on every boot. I can mount the share manually using

I've added the line
192.168.2.1:/x_machine /mnt/test nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0

to my /etc/fstab file, but it doesn't seem to mount on boot. What am I missing. I tried looking in the log files for an error, but couldn't find anything. Ubuntu 10.04 x64 desktop edition.

General :: Root Can't Chown Mount Point For Samba Share?

May 30, 2010

I have a samba share that I mount locally at boot through fstab. The share is writable and if I access the share directly, say with konqueror and smb (smb://hostname/sharename) then I can do anything I want (create, write, delete, edit, files/directories). I have a mount point on my local machine

Code:

/shares/mp3

and I (username dtest) was unable to do anything except read files and create directories trying to do them to the local mountpoint except as root. I figured it would be a matter of

Code:

chown -R dtest /shares/mp3

but I was unable to do that even as root, I kept getting permission denied. When I did

Code:

ls -alt /shares/ it told me the owner was 1000 and the group was root. Dtest was already a member of the root group and I was able to

Code:

chmod -R 774

as root but I still couldn't do anything except read and create directories directly via the mountpoint. Ultimately I solved this by changing the uid of user dtest via kuser and then just chowning my home directory back to dtest. It seems like as root I should be able to change the owner of the directory. I know it's because this is a samba share, but it doesn't make any sense why root couldn't just chown it. Is there another way to change the owner of a directory, or is this set by the machine hosting the samba share?

General :: Httpd Virtual Host Set To Mount To Samba Share Folder?

Dec 23, 2010

The scenario like this. I'm working on Ubuntu 10.10. I've enable samba sharing with full guest access enable. In my office I had another server (CentOS 5.5) installed just for me and I've created a Apache VirtualHost which root document pointed to share folder on my comp

This is my fstab setting
//my ubuntu computer name/sharing/www /media/www cifs context=system_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0,username=username,password=******,iocharset=utf8,fi le_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

After label the mount folder as httpd_sys_content_t the Apache web server working in correct way (duno much but at least it can index files and excute some php code so) then the troll come in : if some file was created by my ubuntu (personal comp) then the file would be listed in Apache virtualhost correctly.

But if I'm ssh to CentOS server goto /media/www which was mounted to my unbuntu computer. Then type command like $mkdir something Suprising that folder ./something could not be accessed by Apache anymore except I remount by umount and mount it again or "setenforce 0" What is wrong with my system can anyone point me out of this headache

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Access To Samba Share

I need to access a windows share at my university's server. When I am at the university, I can access the share by nautilus (or dolphin) in a similar way to ftp:

smb://domain%5Cusername@server/share

The thing is that when I try the above anywhere else except the university, it does not connect. I guess it has something to do with the domain, but I am not sure.

Debian Configuration :: Access Remote Samba Share Gigolo Way

Jul 18, 2011

I've got a fresh Wheezy/Xfce install.I'm trying to access a remote samba share the gigolo way. It is an external USB hard drive connected to my router. I can access it read only using the following URL with Icedove: smb://bbox/

Anyway, this is just to try and give might-be-useful information, but ultimately, I don't really want to use fusesmb. I would rather have the gigolo way working, allowing local network shares browsing, auto-connect, etc.

Networking :: Share A NFS Mount With Samba?

Apr 21, 2010

Can I share an NFS mount with samba?

Scenario:

ServerA has an NFS Mount to ServerB at mount point /home/qlogger/logs

I can cd to /home/qlogger/logs on ServerA and see the contents as they would be on ServerB (NFS Working with proper permissions rw).

I have a samba share setup on ServerA to share the NFS Mounted Directory (/home/qlogger/logs)

I connect with my windows host and am able to view the files and folders. I can create folders just fine however; when I go to copy a file from the windows machine to the samba share I receive a message saying the file is locked.

I have disabled oplocks in samba and the problem still persists.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount A NAS Samba Share

Jan 13, 2011

One problem I'm having is with getting some apps to access NAS hosted files and folder over samba. Two examples are photo managment apps and backup apps, which seem to only want to work with local files and folders.I have come across a number of articles about cifs, autofs, gigolo, fstub, etc (including the autofs community documentation). But so far I've had no luck in auto mounting a samba shared resource as local.

Can anyone point me to a definitive tutorial, or provide an explanation on how I might accomplish auto mounting samba shares?

Server :: Unable To Mount Samba Share

Nov 11, 2010

I've began to work on getting my access control, set up properly on my server, and want to create a "my documents" folder for each user I add. I do not want it being part of the home directory and have read everything and still can't seem to get it to work. I've got a second drive that is mounted at /private on my server, with a folder that is underlying on it call users and groups. Then from there is has the exact unix username that I set up in Users and Groups. Ex. /private/user/gary . With Samba, I added the following code:

Code:

[My Documents]
guest ok = no
comment = %u's Documents

[code]....

I've tried using %u,%U,%S, and the normal username and of all of them, it will only work with the username. I've even used force user. added root to the valid users list and it still gives me access denied or the multiple connections to a single share with multiple user names prohibited but nothing is mounted on this share. On Webmin, it doesn't show any connections to the share. I'm rather at a stumped state in which is frustrating me, because I want to have this so when I go from my desktop to my laptop I have "My Documents" On either unit. Security on the server is set to User because I've searched to see if I can't find a way to make shares visible by a guest but read only to them and when I access them from my log in to make it read write using the "Share" option.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Can Use Samba Share But Cannot Mount It

May 27, 2010

I am trying to mount a file server directory on a client machine. I tried using NFS, but could not mount the share on the client. Several respobses were given to a post on this problem. but I still was not able mount the NFS share. I decided to try instead to mount the directory as a Samba share because I can already access it using Samba from windows, or from KDE or Gnome using smb://fileserver as a desktop location icon URL. When I try to mount the Samba share I get error messages that nearly identical those that occurred with NFS. . Here are some of the setup parameters

CentOS 5.4 on client and server behind a D-Link router
server IP: 192.168.0.44 (can ping it client)
client IP: 192.168.0.101 (can ping from server)

[code]....

This is the only error message that these commands have produced in the messages log, secure log or smbd log for either machine. My immediate goal is to set up the simplest possible local mount that will allow Grsync to backup to the file server.

I need it as all my Movies/TV/eBooks are on this.I have followed every and I mean EVERY option I have found on Google with no luck. From the fstab/mount option to the gvfs option (as you can guess both failed)The reason it is *$&^%$^&%$ me off it that Windows can do it with a couple of mouse presses (Map Network drive).

Ubuntu Servers :: MAC OsX Client Cannot Mount Samba Protected Share?

path = /path/to/private
comment = private
valid users = user1 user2
directory mask = 0777

It work fine for Win and Ubuntu, but access this folder with Mac OsX gives this error:

smb_mount: open session failed!: syserr = Broken pipe

It seems that authentication is ok, but for some reason it cannot mount the device.

I know this is not the right place to talk about OsX issues.

I would like to exclude if there are some options I miss in the smb.conf.
