I have a system that I want to auto mount a samba from another one. The issue is that they are both laptops so doing it by name is much much better than by ip. Unfortunately when I try to mount by name with this in my samba:
it works fine. The ip obviously is going to change depending on what network the two systems are on.
I have this ubuntu machine that lives under my desk and is basically a utility machine. Mainly I ssh to it and get synchronize/backup files, etc.
When I reboot, for some reason the auto mount for my usb drives doesn't work until I actually hook up the monitor and log in to the gui. When I ssh in after reboot, I'm unable to access my USB drives! "Not Authorized"
I'm not sure how to mount a drive from the command line... really I just want the machine to auto mount the drives when it starts up... gui login or no.
I've been trying to unsuccessfully auto-mount my drives when starting up. I've made a script that sets me to the root using "sudo -s" and then mounts the drives. The commands to mount the drives work properly when entered into the command line, but when I try running them from an executable, they don't work. What might I be missing?
Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.
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?
I've a few group shares setup with samba and a PDC (using windows 7 clients) and the home directory for each user gets mounted automatically. I've configured group shares and only members of the respective group have access to them, but my question is how do I tell samba to automount group shares based on the user group?
Dropbox will not start properly because my Lucid installation is on a SS HD (/dev/sdc) but my data, including my Dropbox folder is on an internal NTFS-formatted HD (/dev/sda), and I also have another internal HD for backups (/dev/sdb).
For some reason I can get the backups HD to auto-mount on startup, but not the data HD. My fstab file looks like this:
I'm using Red Hat in a work environment as the system that runs my Netbackup. My predecessor was using 1Tb Western Digital external HD's and they worked great but now were upgrading to 2Tb drives and I have to format them and make sure then work correctly.
I have been able to format them in Red Hat and they have worked with Netbackup however the only way I can get them mounted is by having them plugged in and then restarting the whole system. The older drives are completely plug and play.
Here are the steps that I have been following;
Then I set the file system type with;
Next I create the new filesystem on the drive with the command;
Then I finalize the format with;
Followed by a restart, which of course the drive comes up. But if I unmount the drive and remove it and then plug it back in nothing comes up. Trying to manually mount it doesn't come up with anything. I have attempted this with 3 different brand new Western Digital external HD's.
I've looked in the fstab and when I plug in the old hd's it comes up with the command to mount it. With the new one's its not there unless I do the complete system restart.
I've recently set up a fedora 13 machine to use as a media server, I've been able to get everything going except samba. I've installed a second hard drive which is mounted at /media/Core and works fine on the local filesystem. I can browse the share from my mac however when I connect I get this in the smb.log file
I've installed Lubuntu on a Packard Bell EasyNote W3344 D. lsusb displays the usb pen, however it's not automounted. All three options under pcmanfm --> Preferences -- Volume Managment is ticked. I've tried two different usb pens, both formatted fat32 and confirmed working on ordinary Ubuntu. I should add that I previously installed Mint Fluxbox, but eventually reinstalled (choosing Lubuntu) because I wasn't able to enable auto mount of usb pen. Both /mnt and /media remains empty after insertion of the usb pen. Auto mount of optical drive is working properly.
I stuck a flash drive into a usb port this morning, and the device notifier failed to show. I opened Dolphin, and I noticed that nothing that should be mounted was showing up in the left pane. I always have seen my Windows install, as well as another partition that has Slackware. I can navigate to /mnt/vista and its all there. I can also go to /mnt/Slackware and its all there. However, the flash drive does not show.I can manually mount the drive and all is well as root. I can't even tell you when this started. I am using Alien's 4.6 KDE packages with all the deps. I just opened mc and checked everything. HAL is disabled and has been for a long time. All did work after disabling HAL.Its not just the flash drive, it effects anything - music cds, blank media, nothing works automagically. Google hasn't
Start>Run>\192.168.0.1storage gives me "The specified network password is not correct." It lists my domain as "ANTEC" which is the name of my computer, though I've changed the workgroup to WELLS. I've run:
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I can't get the samba server to work on a Fedora 13 system. First of all, I've activated the "smb" service. After this, since I couldn't find any samba configuration tool in Gnome, I switched to KDE and launched Menu - Computer - System Settings - Advanced - Samba. I typed in my workgroup and netbios name and added a share (2nd tab). Then I added my user name to the blank list "samba users" (4th tab), which wasn't very effective, because this list is blank again when I leave (OK) and reopen this config tool.
From a windows machine, I can't access this Fedora system. Netbios doesn't work (ping netbios name - ...could not find name...) and trying \IP in the explorer shows an error message "Windows cannot find...". Btw firewall and Selinux are both deactivated.
When I open Dolphin on the Fedora locally and type "smb://localhost" it *does* show a logn window, but no matter what I type in there, it just shows this login windows again after clicking OK.
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 have a Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I have use the STA drivers that Ubuntu recommends. I can connect quite easily just by clicking on the icon, so this is more than a niggle than a problem.
My network isn't protected as we live in the middle of nowhere (quite literally) and network theft isn't a problem. We also run a self-catering cottage, and let guests have free access to our network anyway, so it is easier for guests to access our network without me having to give them all the key. When I did use wpa, it would start itself up with the laptop, so I kind of know that this might be the cause. Is there any way I can fix it without encrypting the network?
i have a windows xp machine with filesharing enabled and the shares set up and ready to go i have a laptop on which i did a fresh install of fedora 15 with samba and all the necessary packages to make the fedora machine a samba client to the windows machine.
my problem is that when i go into nautilus and click on the network tab it shows nothing not one single computer...the fedora machine doesnt even show up.....i have done all the tests i can think of and confirmed that the smb service is running, the nmb service is running, samba is allowed thru the firewall and all the computers are in the same workgroup..yet neither one can see each other even more frustrating is when i go to mount a windows share thru the terminal it shows a successful mount (as i type in the command hit enter and recieve no errors) BUT when i go into the mount directory and open the new directory i made for the samba share it shows nothing there not even when i go into the windows machine and add a file to the shared folder...PLUS for some strange reason the /mnt directory already had two empty files called "home" and "boot" already in it i have no clue what thats about but ok, then on the windows side i go into "network places" and click on "show workgroup computers" and the windows machine will show up but not the fedora machine.
these are the commands i have used to install and get samba working- "yum install samba system-config-samba samba-client cifs-utils" "service smb start" anyway until i can figure this out i have decided to start from scratch and erase samba from the machine completely and i am hoping that maybe some one can read all this and come up with some ideas...maybe there is just something i forgot when i was setting this up yesterday its possible i just went to fast and skipped a step again all i want is the fedora 15 machine to just be a samba client with read/write priviledeges
I upgrade my fedora 10 to fedora 11 without any issues but I noticed that now when I insert a dvd or cd it will not mount it automatically. Previously when I used fedora 10 it worked like a charm not it will not mount it. I just want when I insert cd or dvd my fedora to mount it automatically.
Problem I have is the Samba server, it does not seem to start up the shares at boot.When I boot the system, nothing is available on the network, I have to run the Samba Server Configuration Tool everytime I want to access a share, edit a share, save and quit, then my network shares become available.I see Starting SMB services during boot up, it says OK.It worked good on Fedora13.
I currently mount my smb shares by adding the appropriate line to fstab. Now my son also uses my laptop (F13 by the way) and I would also like to automount the shares for him but as a different user because there are some directories he should not have access to.
