General :: CIFS Mounting Works Via Command Line - Fails With Fstab

Dec 2, 2009

I've successfully mounted a network share with mount.cifs for the past 2 years using fstab with credfile.

[Code]....

Yesterday I moved this system to a new datacenter, but did not alter fstab or the credfile. The //server/share directory has IP rules in place, but this was updated with the new system IP while we moved the system. Now, I am mysteriously unable to automount //server/share. The local error is 13 (permission denied). The Windows server we are mounting returned a code that is defined as "username is valid but password is incorrect" Again - no changes (content or permissions) were made to my credfile or fstab entry. I've restarted netfs a few times, including rebooting the system twice. What is baffling is I can successfully mount //server/share via command line: Code: mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt/mycooldir -o username=foobar,password=1234

The username and passwords are identical in credfile and the mount options - I copied & pasted username / password from the credfile itself.

Ubuntu Networking :: Fstab Setup For Cifs Mounting?

Aug 12, 2010

Hopefully this'll be an easy one (but I wasn't able to find any other posts with the exact same problem).I'm connecting to a large hard drive at work. I can mount perfectly fine. The following is the relevant line in my fstab file:

//XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/data /mnt/labdata cifs users,rw,exec,suid,dev,username=XXX,password=XXX,_ netdev,fmask=777,dmask=777 0 0

The problem is that when I try to cd to the correct directory, I get a permission denied error. I don't own the mount point, and there aren't general read/write permissions set. But if I change to superuser, I can access it no problem. I can read, write, make directories, etc. So the problem is with my computer--not the remote one.

Now, if I add the option uid=MYID, I can read and write just fine. The system makes me the owner of the directory on mounting. But that's not what I want--I'm trying to allow multiple users access to this file system. I want there to either be a neutral owner (e.g. root) with others having read/write access, or I want the owner of the mount point to be the user currently logged in.

Ubuntu :: Fstab Not Mounting Cifs Manually Call Mount -a?

Apr 30, 2010

I have the following line in my fstab:

Code:
//192.168.0.242/websites /mnt/supercube cifs rw,user=XXX,pass=XXX,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=XXX 0 0
But it doesn't auto mount with everything and disconnects whenever I suspend my computer. The only way to get it to mount is with
Code: sudo mount -a and it mounts fine with no error.

Did lucid change the way it uses fstab or something? Obviously writing mount -a isn't a huge concern, but it kind of destroys the point of putting it in my fstab.

Server :: Crontab Fails But Command Line Works ?

Feb 19, 2011

Having an odd problem running a mysqldump via crontab. I have the script running on other servers and they work fine, so not sure how to actually troubleshoot, but the script looks like the following;

If I run it as a cronjob as root, it finishes in a second and a 20k file is there. If I run it from the command line as root it does the backup (takes a few minutes) but does complete the backup and can be unzipped and read successfully.

Hardware :: Mounting External HD Under Gentoo (fails) - Works On Debian

Mar 18, 2011

I recently picked up an external HD which I partitioned, formatted and can mount just fine under Debian. When I plug in the device, I can see an appropriate sda1 entry for my partition in /dev. However, when I attempt to use the device in Gentoo (the system I bought the drive to back up) it seems to not be recognized. I still get some new entries under /dev when I plug it in, but no specific partition number is recognized. On Debian (where it works) here is the output of dmesg after plugging in the device:

Code:
[ 9179.847274] usb-storage: device found at 8
[ 9179.847277] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
[ 9179.848514] usb 5-5: New USB device found, idVendor=059b, idProduct=0070
[ 9179.848520] usb 5-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 9179.848523] usb 5-5: Product: eGo USB
[ 9179.848526] usb 5-5: Manufacturer: Iomega
[ 9179.848528] usb 5-5: SerialNumber: 090000000000D517
[ 9184.844890] usb-storage: device scan complete .....

I have to admit that I'm kind of baffled by what is going on here. It would seem that in Debian the drive is initially treated as a cdrom device and then my partition is seen, but the same is not occurring in Gentoo. How I can make the sr0 device work in Gentoo? Am I missing a module?

Ubuntu Installation :: CIFS Entry For FSTAB?

Nov 11, 2010

I just went from Jaunty to Maverick. I booted Maverick and manually mounted my Windows Network drives by clicking on the appropriate "mount" command in the directory /media.I then created an fstab file like I did in Jaunty. Here is the smb mount command that I had in the fstab file. I had a file with the user id and password in the credentials file.Code://???.???.??.?public_p/media/servername smbfs credentials=root,dmask=0777,fmask=0777 0 0This provided me access to my server for the past 18 months.I modified the fstab file for Maverick which was working fine for 3 days so I would automatically mount the server drives.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ad-Hoc Works With GUI But Not Command Line

Jul 17, 2010

I have two Roboards that need to communicate with one another. I have sucessfully installed Ubuntu 9.04 using the 386 kernel based on instructions found online.I can use the GUI to set up an Ad-Hoc network using one Roboard ("Create New Wireless Network"), call it Manet, and connect to "Manet" using the GUI on the other Roboard and ping/ssh between the boards. However, when I try to create the same wireless network using the command line using:

ifconfig wlan2 down
iwconfig wlan2 key off essid 'Manet' channel 5 ap any
ifconfig wlan2 up

I don't see any entry in iwconfig under "Cell". It keeps giving me "Not Associated"When I try to enter the same information on the other Roboard to try to connect to the network, it doesn't connect and under iwconfig, I don't even see any entry for ESSID. Could somebody please tell me why it works when I use the GUI and not the command line.

CentOS 5 :: Automount Cifs Filesystem Using The Fstab File

Aug 3, 2010

I have been running a server for 3-4 years now, and my shares have been mounting just fine. Well, the network admin looked at a backup and seen that the last date backed up was june. I got to looking around and seen that the share is not mounting. I can mount it with sudo mount -a, which tells me my syntax is correct. I get an error about IPv4 socket not opened and it is aborting the operation when I run dmesg | tail, since I can use the above command to mount later, it sounds to me like it is trying to mount before the network connection is ready.

I have done some looking over some init scripts and found that in the /etc/rc.d/init.r/netfs script it has a line that states that it is checking to see if the network is up before it starts to mount the filesystems and the such. This is set to no, my question is, can I change this option to yes and get my desired results, waiting for the network to be up before it mounts the filesystems.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Automount Cifs Network Drives In Fstab?

I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.

Here's an example of two:
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users

I can execute a command

Code:
sudo mount /home/user/mount and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.

Software :: Command Line Browsing That Works With JavaScript Sites?

May 9, 2011

How can I verify JavaScript on a site (not on the same server) is working from command line access of the URL?

On checking some of what was written in 2005 I find most of it isn't still relevant (if it was then - I noted the w3m-js stuff mentioned in 2005 hadn't been updated since 2003).

Since then a couple of times I've looked into it but didn't make much headway but also didn't spend a lot of time on it. So far as I could tell from other posts I'd seen others hadn't either.

Recently I found out about Mozilla's SpiderMoneky js library and that it could be linked into elinks text browser and did same on my RHEL5 system.

I found Spidermonkey rpms in the EPEL (Fedora sponsored) repository:
js-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm
js-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm
js-devel-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm
js-devel-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm

I was able to download and install using rpm then compile elinks from source to include the above. Running elinks version after that shows the ECMAScript support is compiled into the new elinks binary. Also setting various ecmas* flags in the elinks.conf does have effect so clearly it is using them. (As opposed to another system where I use the original RHEL5 provided elinks RPM it complains about the ecmas* stuff being invalid options.)

It appears that by default it has this enabled but just for good measure I added:

set ecmascript.enable = 1.

Despite that when I pull up the page I see:

This product requires use of a browser that supports JavaScript

As a test I set the above to 0 on the off chance it was backwards and saw the same thing.

I then set the following:

set ecmascript.error_reporting = 1

On pulling up the page I now see a popup box:

Quote:

JavaScript Error:

A script embedded in the current document raised the

following exception:

TypeError: Window.Focus is not a function

OK

That seems to suggest that despite the earlier message about needing a browser that supports JavaScript that it is in fact executing at least one JS but that it is getting an error. Can anyone confirm that?

Does anyone have any idea what I�d need to do to deal with the Window.Focus message?

Essentially the site is a login page and even though I am able to input username and password after opening in browser when I tell it to POST it simply returns to the same login/password page.

And of course it doesn't have to be elinks/spidermonkey. I'd be interested in finding out if anyone knows a way I can verify a site that is running JavaScript is actually responding properly from command line rather than via a browser?

The SpiderMonkey stuff from Mozilla when compiled into elinks is supposed to do that but given my results Im not sure if it is or not.

Most of the documentation I can find on JavaScript stuff appears to be aimed at developers testing their own JS code from command line rather than accessing a web page with JavaScript.

Programming :: BASH - Works On The Command Line, Hangs As A Script?

Jul 16, 2010

I'm writing a Bash script to take IPTC keywords from a text file and write them, via Exiv2, to several (first batch is 100) JPEG files in a single directory. The script has one while loop inside another while loop, both terminated, but I'm pretty sure that's not my problem. I think it's how I'm incrementing the "counter" variable, although it could also be the method of parsing the text lines from the file (using cut with delimiters that have worked fine in simpler scripts).

Here's the code as I've worked it up to this point.

Code:

And yes, "keywords" checks out in Crimson Editor, Emacs GUI and nano as an ASCII file with UNIX line endings. No issues on that score.

Feeding each line consecutively into a terminal (excepting the exiv2 command) works fine: each variable echoes with the part of the text line used as a variable value as it should, even when the b variable is incremented the quick&dirty way (up arrow three commands and hit enter).

Running the above script in eval mode (sh -x) stalls after setting the b variable to one and reading in the first line of text. I'd like to know why. I'd also like some advice on another reliable method of parsing the read-in lines.

Programming :: Command Line Works - Won't Work From Inside Bash Script

Feb 16, 2011

Writing script to create backup of file by adding datetime to file name. Basically test for file presence if there, cp with datetime then rm original cp works fine from command line but get cannot stat `full path to file': No such file or directory

Code:

Here are the errors: cp: cannot stat `~/html/CVP_dadamail/.dada_files/.logs/errors.txt': No such file or directory rm: cannot remove `...': No such file or directory

The for statement is a placeholder as I have same file to backup out of several directories. using "bash -x scriptname" -OR- inserting echos, I can see I've constructed the strings properly. Believing it might be related to the hidden directories, I tried setting the shopt "glob" options to no avail.

Ultimately I'll add the other directories to the for loop and then run this from a cron job, so if you see potential pitfalls knowing I'm headed in that direction...believe construct would be

Ubuntu Servers :: Unreachable /etc/fstab Cifs/smbfs Mount Halts Boot?

Jan 16, 2011

I have the following two lines at the bottom of my /etc/fstab

Quote:
//172.16.6.15/e /tmp/e cifs _netdev,iocharset=utf8,credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,gid=0 0 0
//172.16.6.15/e/Public /var/www/index/pub cifs _netdev,iocharset=utf8,credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,gid=0 0 0
My server address is 172.16.6.1.

If the destination (which is my workstation desktop) 172.16.6.15 is offline when the server tries to boot, the entire boot procedure halts with the following message: Unable to find suitable address. mountall: mount <destination> terminated with status 2 The problem is that my server runs headlessly, and every time something silly like this happens where you'd normally expect the OS to continue regardless, I'm forced to plug a monitor in and diagnose on console

So my question: Is there any way to make it proceed with the boot normally despite the host being unreachable? I could probably chuck a mount command into crontab or /etc/rc.local or a /etc/network/if-up.d script, but isn't this the way it really should be done (/etc/fstab)? If so, then we shouldn't expect the entire boot to halt just because a network share can't be mounted, right? While on the topic of a headless ubuntu server 10.10 not booting without some kind of intervention, I have yet another issue: If the server goes down without proper shutdown (power failure, for example) the grub menu displays the kernel choices and there's no countdown timer. Instead, I have to manually press enter to continue the boot. Is there any way around this? Clearly this should not be the case for a server distribution

Fedora :: Mounting SMB/CIFS Volumes With Autofs On The Fly?

Feb 18, 2010

There are a couple of way to mount Samba shares, but I prefer using "autofs" which can mount them on the fly. Use the autofs daemon to have shares automatically mounted on demand. The netfs service (installed by default in Fedora) is not a daemon and can only mount shares on boot, (it can't mount them on demand).

* Install the autofs package:

Code:
yum install autofs * Edit /etc/auto.master (the master map file), and comment out all lines (with #). This avoids conflicts with the CDROM (which is handled by Gnome), etc. Save the file. * Create a new file /etc/auto.cifs, with the contents of:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# $Id$

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 :: Mounting Cifs As User - Permissions With SUID Bit?

Jan 11, 2010

I have looked at a LOT of forum posts and other sites trying to solve this problem but I have had no luck. I've seen the following:[URL].. I have an entry in my fstab that lets root mount a samba share on a Windows Server 2003 machine and gives users full read/write access to the share. The fstab entry looks like:

Code:
//servername.net/share /mnt/share cifs rw,user,umask=000,username=someuser,noauto,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
However, when a normal user tries to mount the share they get one of two errors:
1. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to 777
Code:
mount error(1): Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
2. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to +s

Code: mount error: permission denied or not superuser and mount.cifs not installed SUID Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I would go about getting a user able to mount this samba share?

CentOS 5 :: Samba CIFS - Mounting Directory On Share

Jul 22, 2009

I've to make a Windows 2000 share on my Server Linux CentOS 5.1 with all the updates installed with yum. I've a directory on a Windows 2000 that contains some images for a catalogue. I have my internet site on CentOS 5.1 with a Apache - Mysql - PHP web server. I have to mount my directory on a share in /mnt/catalogueimages and made a symbolic link from my /var/www/html/mysite/catimages to this samba share.

This is what I do following your guide a this link: [URL]
I have placed in my /etc/fstab this line:
//SERVER/C/Catalogue /mnt/catalogueimages cifs user,username=Administrator,password=,uid=apache,gid=apache 0 0
My Windows 2000 server have no password.

After that I made the symbolic link:
ln -s /mnt/catalogueimages /var/www/html/mysite/catimages
All it's OK.

The problem is that I can't see the images via browser. I have tried also to put some images in the directory /mnt/catalogueimages, deleting the mount point, in order to see if the problem was in apache: the images are visible via browser. Why I don't reach to see the images mounted with samba?
