OpenSUSE Network :: 'Volume Could Not Be Mounted' - SMB
Mar 25, 2010
I shared a few directories using samba which can be detected with XP or OSX over the network. However, when I try mount those folders this error occurs (OSX): 'Volume X could not be mounted'.I checked that smb as wells as xinetd is running and that the firewall ports are open (also tried deactivating the firewall with no success).
After update 11.2 to 11.4 copy jobs from netware 5.1 volume to local disk linux system does crash after a couple of seconds. I might have to do if there a allot of small files in that job. If happend system reboot is required because unmount netware volume nor delete copied files to the local linux system is not possible. Recompiling ncpfs package not possible because error free source package ncpfs version 2.2.6 might not be availble.

I use Suse 11.2. I mounted 5 folders from fstab. 2 of them work but 3 do not. The 3 folders that do not work let me enter them, and they let me see everything. I can even create or delete a folder on them, if I am just browsing with konqueror. The problem is that I have a program that will not read them. It's a program made for my company and apparently it will only read folders that have all of their permissions set to read and write. The program will read the first two because their permissions are set to Owner, Group, and Others, can view and modify content. (The network folders are all windows server 2003 computers). The 3 folders the program will not read are set to Owner can view and modify content, but Group and Others are "can view content" If I try to change those permissions even in root, it tells me that access is denied.
I have v 10.10 running the following (and I still have no idea how I got this all working). Myth, Squeeze server, X10 control system for the house, Virtualbox (where I run some windows stuff) and a general file and print service. It has 5 disk drives attached
1 - system disk 5- external usb to back up data to 2,3,4 - 2 tb drives in a raid config
I just restarted the server and the raid volume has not mounted. I looked in the webmin interface and the device is there but it doesn't seem to have the partitions attached. Again in webmin, the partitions seem to be on each of the drives. I used crash-plan to back up the data and music, but not the video, so I would prefer not to have to rebuild the lot if I don't have to. I really don't want to re build the lot out of my lack of experience with Linux. Is there an easy (ish) way of putting the raid back together to see if it's just dropped its config and the data is in tact (or can be rebuild from two of the three drives).
I have an iSCSI device that is large, ~17TB usable, and I've created an XFS file system at the device level. I mount the device no problem and am able to touch and remove files without issue. I start my application and within about 5-10 minutes I start seeing the following entries appear in /var/log/messages
I mount the shared drives (on a Windows Server 2003) and I can access them from my home directory. Everything is mostly fine. But I also get desktop icons for the shared drives, which I don't like since I prefer a bare desktop. Sometimes I have deleted desktop icons from /usr/share/dist/... but these are not there.
I am trying to create a link to my windows xp workgroup where all my data is stored (I was surprised that linux could even see it!) I mounted a volume on the desktop apparently... that worked fine until I rebooted and it had disappeared. it was fairly annoying that I had to go back into the network and re-mount the volume. How can I get it to stay put, even after rebooting?
I have recently installed Debian on my NAS server. I have also configured Samba for sharing the home directory of a nas user i.e. /home/nas To this directory I have read/write from a windows machine using the nas user credentials.
When I mount my RAID partition /dev/md0p1 to the /home/nas directory, I then realize that all content in this directory (files and subfolders) is only owned by the root user. When trying to access from the windows machine the /home/nas directory, I do not have any write access, only read. I have tried both the nas and the root user credentials.
I have also attempted the change the ownership of the mounted RAID partition to the nas user with the -R recursive option, but I get for the internal files/subfolders an error "operation not supported".
How can I overcome this problem?
- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0 array definition (i.e. ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=bddf8b69:c97967b5:cb104784:7fef7cc3 )?
- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0p1 mounting (i.e. mount /dev/md0p1 /home/nas)?
- Should I do any extra configuration before the mounting etc?
I have mounted samba volume and I need to have write permissions for every new folder that's being created (currently, by default, on every newly created folder i have only read and execute permissions).I tried changing umask, but with no effect on mounted folder, umask changed only for local filesystem. I tried mounting with umask option, but with no effect again.I'm using ArchLinux on this machine, and I installed samba using default package manager (pacman).
I'm running 10.04 server on a Mac G5 with 2 network interfaces, one pointing to my network (192.168.0.x) and the other to a local partner network (192.9.100.x) with which we share a network volume to give/take PDF files.My client environment is MAC OS X (from 10.4 to 10.6) and until now only one client (with 2 nics) was connected to that volume: we don't have layer3 switches to do static routes over the two networks, so I decided to use my Ubuntu Server Mac to do this (it's also my new syslog server...).
Nics are configured correctly, and the local share (192.168.0.x) is well seen by everybody.But, when I mount the remote volume (192.9.100.x) to THAT shared folder, nobody is able to connect to the samba share (that now lists the remote volume directory...). The MAC OS X tells "unable to unmount the volume". IP forwarding is also activated on /etc/sysctl.confHere is a part of my smb.conf file
i'm installing a Linux system just simply following guide by fellow friends comunity. Currently, my box are having 2 HDD with 35GB each capacity. Displaying in GNome (36.2 GB Encrypted Data). During installation, I'd selected :
*Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout *The "Encrypt system" option
On a small network i have 3 WinXP computers and i've just installed a two new ones with Win7 pre-installed. As server i'm running OpenSuSE 10.3 and Samba with only one share. As i mount it to WinXP computers all get same volume serial number:
V:>dir Volume in drive V is AppDrive Volume Serial Number is 8CD5-975C
...and all Win7 computers get a diffrent one:
V:>dir Volume in drive V is AppDrive Volume Serial Number is A0D3-975C
We use application witch somehow only works when one/same volume serial number on a mounted drive is used.
I have some large volumes that I don't want to automatically be e2fsck'd when I reboot the server. Is it safe to change maximum mount count to -1 and check interval to 0 while a volume is mounted, or will that cause problems to the file system?
I have a Truecrypt-encrypted Windows [system] partition, that I want to be opened and mounted automatically (using a keyfile) when I log into Debian, since it is also encrypted and I don't want to type two passphrases. It think this could be done with LUKS. With TC I probably have to go with the CLI, but haven't figured it out yet. And I can't add a keyfile to the volume using the GUI. In order to mount the volume I have to tick the Mount partition using system encryption (preboot authentication) checkbox, or otherwise I get Incorrect password or no TrueCrypt volume found. And same when I try to add a keyfile.
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.
I have samba installed. I also have a Windows NTFS disk mounted on Ubuntu. To share the file, I migrate to the folder with the file manager, right click on it and select "Sharing Options". I get the message
'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /mnt/Windisk/<path> as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this.
I have a line in the fstab file which automatically mounts a network drive every time I start up Ubuntu. I browse to a text file on the network drive and open it using gEdit and make changes to it. Then, when I hit the save button, a bright red warning appears:
Could not save the file [path here] gedit cannot handle file: locations in write mode. check that you typed the location correctly and try again. This also happens if I do save as. Then, after this error appears, the file actually disappears (gets deleted) from the network drive and in order to save it, I have to select save as again and type in the original filename. The line in my fstab file is:
I work on machines with different architectures, all of which share the same home directory(what is the technical term for it -- network mounting ?). Since I don't have admin privileges on these systems, I have installed programs in /home/<my_id>/bin. A program compiled for one architecture doesn't work when I login into another system. I'm thinking of creating architecture specific directories which would contain inaries/libraries specific to that architecture and creating a softlink to it t /home/<my_id>/bin. The only problem with this solution is that I can't work on two systems at the same time.
I have network drive which connected to my wireless router via usual LAN cable. I mount this network drive using Samba to my Kubuntu laptop filesystem. When I play music (MP3, Flac) from that drive, it sometimes hiccups - music stops for few seconds and then resumes. I usually use VLC, but MPlayer and Audacious have same results. I tried to increase buffer in my VLC -> ALSA settings. I increased it from default 300 to 5000ms, still same result. I have very similar issue on same laptop when booted to WinXP. The only player which does not have hiccups in XP is KMPlayer. But it does not want to work in Kubuntu at all.
I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.
After installing Suse 10.0 I'm unable to get my network card working. Also the volume control in the task bar in not working. Using Yast I tried configuring network card. The exact card is not on the list provided by Suse. Is this the problem & how do I fix it?
This is the set up I have: PC downstairs by a tv, with 3TB of storage containing my media, connected to the tv too. HTPC upstairs by another tv and connected to it. A few laptops and other desktops around the house which are windows based
I want the downstairs pc to act as a file server and to run my torrent client, it is running Ubuntu desktop version and has xbmc installed too for use with the tv. The upstairs htpc has xbmc live on and will access the media from the file server. What I am looking to do is to be able to log into my ubuntu machine remotely from a laptop running windows so I can manage the files and add torrents for download etc, but for this to be a complete remote session, rather than taking control over what is already being shown on the downstairs pc, like VNC does in windows.
I have two user accounts set up on the main ubuntu machine, the admin account and a media user account which is set to go straight to xbmc after log in. Also how can I make sure that the media drives are automatically mounted to allow access if the admin user is not logged in?
In mi fstab file I mount a smb file server at boot. The code is: //<ip address>/data /home/eng-2/NAS smbfs credentials=/home/eng-2/.smbcredentials,dir_mode=0775,gid=1000,uid=1000 0 0 Transfer rate to the server is approx 100 KB/s Whilst transfer rate from the server 16 MB/s If I mount it from Places>connect to server. Both to and from speeds are 16 MB/s. Why is it so slow when mounted through fstab?
I have recently mounted my iPod Touch using ifuse, and it works with gtkpod and I'm very pleased about that! However, I'm interested in finding out how openSUSE recognises what devices are mounted? Because the device manager in the task bar doesn't recognise that it's mounted... Dolphin doesn't recognise it and neither does Amarok. Only gtkpod, which is good, but I want other applications to recognise it. Do I need to mount it in a specific location? Currently it's at /mnt/iPhone. Or do I need something in fstab (I'm just guessing here).
I'm facing some issues with mounting the cd and usb stick in Gnome: once the hotplug device is discovered Gnome displays multiple lot (5+) notification windows (i.e asking about the opening application) and also causing Dbus errors like: "DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending".
Ubuntu just mounts once, no issues like mentioned above. This is standard 11.3 installation, where should I look for the cause?
