Fedora Networking :: Windows CIFS Shares At Startup

Jun 3, 2011

After booting, the sda5 and sda8 mounts work fine, but the Windows shares haven't been mounted. If I enter the command: mount -a everything works fine. I don't know if this a timing issue, or something to do with the new systemd stuff, but it has happened in previous Fedora releases from time to time.

Fedora :: Where Do CIFS Network Shares Get Mounted?

Jan 21, 2011

I have mounted a windows network share using the gnome desktop environment, using Places -> Connect To server.The network share is OK, and I have the icon on my desktop and can see all the files.I want to be able to use this network as well in the console, so I need the mount point.What is the location on the filesystem were this networkdrive gets mounted? I find nothing in /mnt and nothing in /media also using mount to look at the registered mounts, there is no entry for the networkdrive.Nevertheless, I have this networkdrive now open in my desktop, and have an option to unmount it.I know that using the mount.cifs command you can specify the mounting point.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Intermittent Slow Access To Cifs Mounted Shares

Jan 14, 2010

The shares get mounted correctly and you can navigate through the directories and open files.The only problem is that it randomly starts going really slow taking 30 seconds or longer to open a directory that has 2 or 3 files in it.I have tried quite a few things to try and fix this without any luck. Its getting to the point where I am having to consider recommending that we use windows instead, which I would rather not do as I think its good for students to experience different operating systems during school.

Fedora Networking :: Mounting Windows Share With Cifs?

Feb 10, 2009

Following instructions that I received from the Fedora 10 Guide, I recently edited my etc/fstab file so that I could auto mount my Windows share. It worked the first time, but when I rebooted, I noticed an error saying that Linux could not not unmount the cifs shares. Eventually it did reboot, but now I cannot mount the share at all from fstab. When I run the command #mount -a and then #mount, my share is shown to be mounted although I cannot access it and there is no link to it on the desktop like there was the first time it mounted. I basically want my Windows share to be permanently mounted with read/write permissions. My Distro is Fedora Core 10 64 bit. How can I resolve this issue?

Networking :: After Upgrading From Win7-32 To WIN7-64 Can't Mount Cifs Shares

Jul 21, 2010

This is the first time I have run into issues mounting windows shares but I really can't figure this out. Can someone put me out of my windows misery please.

First off, last week I rebuilt my work PC fromWIN7 32bit to WIN7 64bit since then I can no longer mount the window share on my ubuntu server:

I recreated my windows share called "Linux" and used the properties, advanced sharing and added everyone, full access and my domain account full access.

If I browse to \ipaddress I can see my share and access it. From a XP machine I can see the share and access it.

From linux I use the same mount point as before, /linux I use the same fstab and it fails

Code:

I try this manually now:

Code:

Next I try to mount it:


Code:

I looked at my firewall rules and they seem ok.

Next test was connecting to my 2nd pc on windows XP no probs mounted first time.

What is wrong with my new Win 7 setup?

Networking :: Trying To Access Windows Shares From Fedora 12

Jan 3, 2010

This is a bit of a shameless cross-forum bump, as I'm really trying to crack samba in the hope of getting some server action going, and this is the closest I've been to actually understanding what I'm playing with.
"Well, I've lasted a lot longer than usual before resorting to asking around, but I've finally gone delightfully mad. I've been trying to access shares based on Windows 7 Ultimate with limited user access on said shares. I've managed to get into my XP machine, another mate's Vista machine and various Linux boxes with no issues, but that's only for shares that are accessible by everyone. The moment I try to get into a share that requires user credentials, I get "Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

If I try to access restricted shares (be it machine or folder) through Nautilus, I will get a user logon prompt, but it fails. Using smbclient results in just as little success, and now I'm munching through O'Reiley's Samba manual from '99, after realising that I need to basically learn Samba in its entirety to have a hope in hell at getting this to work. The trouble is though, every HOWTO and relevant forum post I get my hands on all seem to concentrate more on the server side of things, and usually servering from a linux box, not the other way around as I'm trying to.

The above Windows 7 machine won't even allow me to view its share contents, whereas the XP machine will allow me to browse, but won't allow me to access folders with restricted access. I'm pretty sure there aren't any major issues with the way the Windows 7 machine is setup, as it can be accessed with logon from my Xbox, Ubuntu machine, XP and Vista, with only Fedora having problems getting in as it constantly fails logon. What I'm trying to establish is, if Ubuntu can get in, is there something in my Fedora samba config I'm missing that's preventing me access? My thanks in advance to those of you who've been able to put up with me rambling"As you'll see in my original fedoraforum post, the workgroup misreport issue mysteriously fixed itself after a few updates, although I'm inclined to blame my mate's Win 7 box...call it force of habit, I've just generally come to mistrust an OS that tries so diligently to shift focus away from its shell.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Mount Windows Shares

Mar 2, 2010

I am unable to mount Windows shares on Fedora 12. From Nautilus, I can navigate to the shares, but when I attempt to open one I get a dialog "Password required for share ... on ..." asking for username (prepopulated with my username), domain (prepopulated with MYGROUP) and password. I have the same username on the Windows box, but when I enter the password and click Connect, the dialog just pops up again. I'm not sure what "domain" is, tried with my Windows workgroup name, no good. If I blank out either username or domain, the Connect button is disabled.

I tried using the mount command:mount -t cifs //192.168.0.2/... /tmp/mnt -o username=adrian,password=...,iocharset=utf8,file_m ode=0777,dir_mode=0777
That did work once, but now gives the useful error message:mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I can run Windows instead on the client machine, and that gives me access to the shares, no problem.

I have libsmbclient-3.4.5-55.fc12.i686, but that was installed a month ago. I don't see any more recent changes to anything relating to the samba client. I've never had to enter a password to access Windows shares. Actually, it looks like the problem may be on the Windows side, although as far as I know, nothing has changed there. Using smbclient with debuglevel set high, I see failures with this error:SPNEGO login failed: NT_STATUS_REQUEST_NOT_ACCEPTED
Every now and again, I can connect to one or more shares, but after a few attempts, I can't connect to any more. Tried rebooting the Windows box, but that's had no effect. Oh, and "smbclient -L" shows domain as the host name of the windows box, but anonymous login (smbclient -L -N) shows domain as the workgroup name.

Ubuntu :: Using Autofs With Cifs Shares?

May 27, 2010

I am attempting to set up autofs on Ubuntu 10.04 so that it can automatically mount cifs shares when wifi is connected. For some reason, it isn't working. First of all, I know the share is accessible because doing this works fine:

Code:
sudo mount.cifs //192.168.0.12/share /cifs -o credentials=/etc/samba/credentials
This is in my /etc/auto.master
Code:
/cifs /etc/auto.home --timeout=60 --ghost
And this is /etc/auto.home

Fedora Networking :: Accessing Windows Shares - Unable To Mount Location

Jan 15, 2009

We are using spare parts (Socket 775 Biostar motherboard, OCZ 500wat PSU) to build a computer that will just be another system in the house. I want this system to be running Folding@Home, and the F@H SMP client for Linux is much less of a headache than its Windows couterpart, so I would like this computer to run Fedora. My dad loves networking, and knows how to do it in XP / Vista, so he has always opposed my frequent use of Linux. There are ways of accessing Windows shared folders from Linux, but that I haven't figured it out yet. I want to access Windows shared folders from my Fedora 10. I don't know how to go about doing this, can anyone point me in the right direction? Do I have to install anything special? I can go to Places, and then Network (in Gnome) and I see "Windows Network", but when I click it, I get "Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server"

Ubuntu :: Major CIFS Errors When Accessing Shares Etc In 10.04 - No Response For Cmd 50 Mid 34703

May 1, 2010

Since upgrading to 10.04 I have had constant CIFS errors in /var/log/syslog

May 1 10:33:46 eclair kernel: [ 933.794567] CIFS VFS: No response for cmd 50 mid 32900
May 1 10:33:48 eclair kernel: [ 935.721371] CIFS VFS: No response to cmd 46 mid 37294

[code]....

All shares mount and I can open them etc, but always those errors appear whenever I try and browse to it, read them etc. These shares are mount from a Windows 2003 Server and no other machine has a problem reading or writing to this machine. I have changed the network cable and network cards in both machines, with no success. If I copy a file from a local drive to a CIFS drive, the file on the CIFS drive becomes corrupted.

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Cannot See Shares ?

Aug 1, 2010

Simply share a printer in a small, secure home network spread over 5 or 6 machines running mostly windows (98 through Win7) but using the UBUNTU box as the host for the printer.

The network has basic connectivity. I have no problem pinging any box from any box. Or surfing from any box.

From UBUNTU box, can see and browse Windows Workgroup no problem.

Windows machines see the announcement of UBUNPRIN but cannot connect. Cannot seem to authenticate. I'm thinking that I have the share set up with NO security.

security = SHARE

And

map to guest = Bad User

Adding some terminal output and the smb.conf file...

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Write To Windows Shares

Jan 31, 2010

I've recently switched to Ubuntu from debian, and I'm now running a fresh install of 9.04 32 bit. I have a Windows XP media computer which I would like to be able to browse using smb://. This worked fine on my debian system, but I cannot get it to work on ubuntu. The windows XP machine has a couple of shares, e.g Music. I can access the Music share via smb://, but I cannot write to it. Nautilus just says "Permission denied". I can also see the default shares, e.g. E$, but if I try to open them I am prompted with a password, but no matter what I enter it seems to have no effect. How to proceed?

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Shares From 9.10?

Feb 16, 2010

i have 3 ubuntu machines running 9.10. All of them are running SMB so that the Windows machines can access the shares on the Ubuntu machines, but the ubuntu machines can not access shares on the Windows machines. When I click to connect to a windows machine ( all of them running XP), it says "connecting to COMPUTERNAME.." It never opens the computer, and it always comes back with an error saying that it failed to connect. I haven't been using ubuntu for very long, so im not as savvy with it as I am on windows. All windows machines can see all ubuntu shares, just not the other way around and I'd like it to be both.

Networking :: Mounting Shares From Windows Server

Dec 8, 2010

My question is that I have a handful of servers, Server 1 is a Suse Linux machine and Server 2 is a Windows Server 2003 machine. I can mount and access the files/shares on the Linux machine no problem but when I come to using the Server 2003 shares I encounter problems ... here is a snip of my fstab ...

Code:
//10.0.0.20/applications /myfolder/applications cifs username=user1,password=pass1,auto,uid=user2,gid=group2,0 0
user1 and pass1 is the username and password of a user (local to the remote machine) and user2 and group2 are taken from the machine performing the mount.

Am I doing it right, is that how I should be mounting a share from a (Domain enabled) Windows Server 2003?

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows 7 Not Reconnecting To Samba Shares?

Jul 9, 2010

Been trying to deal with this one for some time, and still not sure it's more or an issue on the Samba or Win 7 side.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with Samba 3.4.7, using Windows clients from 2000 on up to access shares.

2000 and XP have no trouble both connecting initially to shares, but upon reboot the shares are disconnected and do not automatically reconnect unless one of them is double-clicked on. Passwords and mappings are saved such that Windows tries to reconnect upon restart. When manually reconnected in this way, shares remain open as they should. This isn't a big issue, but it would be preferable to have these shares reconnect so that links and shortcuts across the LAN work right from bootup.

The bigger issue is with Vista/Windows 7 - When shares are set up with appropriate passwords and such on the clients, they work as expected, until the client is rebooted. After signing into windows 2 things are observable:

- Black screen for 2-5 minutes before desktop appears

- error message appears when you try to double-click on a mapped share (even with a saved password) that the connection cannot be restored.

If you go into credentials manager and delete the saved password for the share(s) on the samba server, you are prompted for the password when you try to open any of the shares - reenter it and you're then fine until the next reboot.

There must be some issue with the persistence of the saved password, but not sure if this a Windows-side issue or not. Read some other info on this, and had to make the following changes earlier to even get Win 7 clients to connect to samba at all:

[URL]

It appears that when Win 7 starts up, it simply can't connect using the saved password, and the desktop doesn't come up until the reconnecting action(s) time out (if you disconnect your win 7 machine from the network the delay is not present).

It's not a game-breaker, but really annoying when rebooting having the delay and reentering the network share password(s).

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Windows 98 To Access Linux Shares

Nov 9, 2010

when I try to access the shares from a Win98 laptop. The server name shows up in the Network Neighborhood (freaking childish names!) but when I double-click it, Win98 keeps asking me for the password for the \SHOPIPC$ connection. I have deleted the .pwl file on the Win98 and logged in using the same user/pass combination as I do on the Linux. On the Linux, I ran 'smbpasswd -a derek' and supplied my password.Windows XP sees the server just fine, but Windows 98 just does not want to play nice. Is there any thing that I can do to fix this without breaking the connection to the XP box or the Linux laptop?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect With Windows 7 Shares

I have a machine with Windows 7 Ultimate with several shared folders. Then I have VMWare with Ubuntu 10.10 as guest running.

This morning I saw the shared folder of the Windows host and I could still open it manually in the Ubuntu guest. After this, I wanted to mount the folders permanently with fixed entries in the /etc/fstab. This failed and now I can't see the folders of the Windows host in the Ubuntu guest..

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Shares Only Work With IP Address (10.10)

My computer running Ubuntu 10.10 cannot see the Samba shares on either of my two Windows XP machines. I have Samba installed and configured, I am on the correct workgroup. However, under "Network", there is only one item - Windows Network, which contains no workgroups. I am hosting a share on this Ubuntu PC, but I haven't had the time lately to see if I can view it from the Windows XP computers. If I click Connect to Server, and enter the IP Address of one of my XP computers, I can connect to them. However, if I enter the computer's name I get "Failed to retrieve share list from server" without a specific share, and with it I get "Failed to mount Windows share."

Ubuntu :: Lucid Startup Error 101 - CIFS VFS Mount Failed

May 1, 2010

I upgraded my Karmic OS to Lucid the day after it became available and have been having some troubles - I am having trouble starting the OS. Brief history: I have real troubles with the ATI graphics and spent a while trying (finally successfully) to remove fglrx and associated dependencies. I then rebooted ready to install new drivers. I now get the following error on startup:

CIFS VFS Error connecting to socket - aborting connection
CIFS VFS cifs_mount failed w/return code (-101)

For the last couple of weeks or so, I have noticed CFS errors on shutdown which has meant that I have needed to physically press the off button to turn the machine off, but since I could still operate I left that problem on the back burner "for when I have more time". Don't know if the two problems are related. Anyway, I am currently in the situation where I cannot start Ubuntu at all unless I use the install CD and try the LIVE distro.

My fstab file looks like this:
aufs / aufs rw 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0
/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

(My PC Has a 1 TB drive and a 500 gig drive. The 1 TB drive has dual boot Vista (came preinstalled and I have a couple of games for it - else, yuk) and Linux. The 500 gig drive is a data drive). I'd rather not reinstall from scratch though may have to? I don't know of any way to repair-install the OS - maybe that would be possible too?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Windows 7 Shares On 10.10, But Can Do Vice Versa?

Dec 7, 2010

Ok this is a really weird issue because of the way it played it out. I have been researching it off and on for weeks now trying to figure it out and have come up with nothing. Basically when I first installed Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) I was able to access the shared files on my Windows 7 (64 bit) computer perfectly once I changed the domain name in Samba. However I wasn't able to access my Ubuntu shares from Windows 7. After researching for a while to figure that out, I found this:[URL]... Boom! Instantly I could access my Ubuntu shares without a problem from Windows 7.

However after I did this something happened where I could no longer access Windows 7 files from Ubuntu. Unfortunately I am not sure if the change happened immediately or some time later. When I go Places > Network I see the name of my Ubuntu computer (Living-Room) and my Windows computer (Nick-PC) as well as a folder called "Windows Network." When I open Nick-PC it brings up a dialog box saying a password is required. There are three text entry fields and a couple option:

Username: Nick
Domain: NRAU
Password: [not filled in]
_ Forget password immediately
_ Remember password until you logout
_ Remember password forever

The password field has to be filled in and I have tried every option. Each time it thinks for a second and then just pops the same dialog box again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Info For Accessing Shares On A Windows 7 Computer?

Dec 29, 2010

I just got my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop to finally be able to access my Windows 7 Professional's shares, and I'd like to share how I got it working. Whenever I would go to Places > Network on Ubuntu, and then double click on my Windows computer (sometimes after finding it in Windows Network > {workgroup name}), it would immediately bring up a box saying "Password required for {computer name}". My Windows password wouldn't work here, but I didn't even want to be asked for a password. In Windows, under Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options > Change advanced sharing settings..., Turn off password protected sharing was already selected.

So, I eventually found out that samba (the program Linux uses to talk with Microsoft's SMB network share protocol) has a bug of sorts. The format of the SMB packets coming from a clean Windows 7 is known by samba. However, if you install Windows Live Sign-In Assistant (which is provided through Microsoft Update) on Windows 7, the packets coming from Windows 7 are modified, and samba can not handle this. A patch has been written for samba, but Ubuntu's repositories (which has samba version 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.1) does not yet have that patch.

Also, it seems Microsoft has stopped Windows Live Sign-In Assistant from appearing in Programs and Features. It doesn't appear even if you specifically download and install it separately. I did, however, notice that the installer calls itself Windows Live Essentials 2011. So I found that in Programs and Features, and uninstalled it. It asked which components I wanted to uninstall, and I selected all of them. Rebooted Windows, and now I can access the share no problem. I also grabbed the offending packet using Wireshark before and after that uninstall. The packet is indeed different. Specifically, without Windows Live Essentials 2011, there is no mechToken in the packet.

The current version of samba available is 3.5.6. I may try downloading and compiling that later, and see if it deals with the change that Windows Live Essentials 2011 makes OK. Also, it may be possible to get the share working without uninstalling every single Windows Live Essentials 2011 component. You may want to try that if you would like to keep a component.
