I am using opensuse11.2 but noticed that I am unable to view the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Checked the contents of mnt directory as well as the media directory but they do not contain anything. I would like to know how to view the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Also i would like to know how to erase the contents of a rewritable dvd once it is inserted into the tray. Is it build into the OS that we can erase the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Please help me as to how I can view the contents of the cd once it is inserted and also how i can erase the contents of a rewritable cd once it is inserted and mounted.
I've tried to get an opensuse box I have to share a directory via NFS. I've failed each time, but I thought that the third time, I'd enlist some help from the forums, if I could. how do I know that the nfs server and not the client is the problem? Short answer is: I don't! That's why nfs (and many netwrk problems) are laborious, you're troubleshooting needs to take place at both source and desitination. Next question, what do I have set up so far? Well, I did download the nfs server kernel stuff (two months back) and /etc/init.d/nfsserver start seems to get set up OK. No errors and the daemons nfsd, idmapd, mountd area all running. So, I *think* that part is OK. I have the share set up properly in /etc/exportfs and have "exportfs -r" it.
OK, now onto the trickier stuff: the client and iptables. On the client pinging to the nfserver box is perfect, and I have rpcbind running. the reported error is "mount.nfs: mount system call failed" though from experience nfs errors don't mean a whole lot.However, I will go off and check now and see if I need a mountd running on client-side too.Then there's iptables .... ouch, that could be a long and painful trek. I don't see any specific ports being blocked, and it's the iptables that the default v11.2 opensuse came with. I did turn them off and the problem was the same, so whether wishfl thinking or not, I'm hoping it's not an iptables issue.
I'm trying to mount my NAS device via NFS with suse 11.1, but up to now it failed. The NAS does support NFS, but it requires a UID and a user name and up to now I could not figure out the correct nfs mount options for that.
If I just make mount 192.168.0.2:/nas1 /mnt a get the error message "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.0.2:/nas1". So can somebody please tell me the correct options for user name and user id which the mount should use. And, preferable the correct entry for the etc/fstab file to make this mount being executed automatically during startup. I studied the mount(8) and nfs manpages several times, but I do still have no idea how to make it.
I am running OpenSuSE 11.3. I cannot mount an export from a Redhat 9 NFS server.I am able to mount the export from RHEL5, Ubuntu, Fedora, Solaris but not OpenSuSE 11.3. This is the command I use from a Ubuntu Karmic box.
mount server:/exportdir /mnt -o vers=3,proto=udp
As I said it works from many other distros, but not sure why no go on this one. Can anyone explain this? Should I submit a bug? I noticed portmap is not used anymore and am wondering if thatmay have anything to do with it. The rpcbind is supposed to handle this from what I read..not sure if this is accurate.
I've just upgraded to 11.3 (64 bit) and the nfs client does not quite work. I have 3 mounts I try to make, and 2 out of 3 work. The third seems to mount, but shows an empty directory. There are no errors in /var/log/messages on the 11.3 client or the server. The only difference between the 3 mounts that I can see is that the failing mount is of an xfs system. The other two happen to be ext3. Is that visible to the nfs client? Or is that a red herring? I can still mount all 3 just fine from my other opensuse 11.2 systems.
For info, the server is running opensuse 10.3... Code: nas:~ # uname -a Linux nas 188.8.131.52-0.2-default #1 SMP 2008-12-18 10:17:03 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
been searching google and forums for about 5 hours now, and can't figure this one out, I have a server running opensuse 11.2 sharing various NFS directories, I have one laptop that is running 11.2 and I have no problem getting my NFS shares from the server.On my other laptop that is running 11.3, I had the shares working at one point, but changed things around and added a new HD to the server, now I can NOT get this thing to work, I have tried everything I could find to read on it. Started and stopped the NFS server and exportfs -a, and checked /var/logs/messages on server and nothing about this laptop (192.168.0.102 suse 11.3) trying to connect.On this laptop, I have deleted all the shares, and tried to re-add them but still get this error everytime.on server /etc/export:
But the system does not mount at boot. SO after the system booted up the command (as root) mount -t nfs 10.10.10.2:/mnt/md1/ulimnt /home/uli/ulimnt mounts the system without problems Of course I can add a login script - but why does it not work at boot System is opensuse 11.0 - network with if up
I am completely new to Linux and picking things up slowly. I have a question about mounting my NAS NV+. When I mount it, i use the following commands when logged on as user "matt":
sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,username=Matt,password=matt //192.168.2.15/Matts /home/matt/GRUMPY/Matts sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,username=Matt,password=matt //192.168.2.15/Torrents /home/matt/GRUMPY/Torrents sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,username=Matt,password=matt //192.168.2.15/Media /home/matt/GRUMPY/Media sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,username=Matt,password=matt //192.168.2.15/Programs /home/matt/GRUMPY/Programs
GRUMPY is the name of my NAS by the way! It mounts properly, BUT i cannot delete or rename files, so basically the user "matt" has read only privileges, and root has ownership of the mount. How do I go about mounting these so that user "matt" has RW privileges?
When I log on as root user and mount them, I can read and write as required, so this has led me to believe that my problem lies in my permissions for matt when mounting them... I posted on the netgear forum and was asked to try and mount using the following command:
I used command as followings. nothing special. mount -t cifs //192.168.55.53/windows$/Home /mnt/ -o user=username%password It works well after mounted. But mounting itself takes 1-2 minutes terribly. After mounted successfully, file transfer speed looks to be normal.
I'm using openSuse 11.2 and testing one of my HA (High Available) solution for my product requires NAS to be HARD,INTERRUPTIBLE MOUNT rather than SOFT mount. how should I perform a HARD,INTERRUPTIBLE MOUNT in openSuse 11.2?
I am using OpenSuSE 11.3 (64 bit) and am trying to force my new server use NFSv4. Later, GSSAPI, sould be added, but for beginning, I want to configure without it for now. If I try using NFSv3, this works good, but I need NFSv4. I have exported my directory:
Code: omega:/ # cat /etc/exports /distrib *(ro,no_root_squash,sync,no_subtree_check) After mount attempt I have a error: Code: omega:/ # exportfs -var
i have a suse 11.3 machine and i cannot set it to be a NFS server that is i cannot mount a directory of this machine on another one running as well a 11.3 while i can mount without problem a directory from 10.0.i do not know where to start as the NFS server option seems to have vanished from YAST.
I have some NFS shares on a server (say Desktop) to which the client (Notebook) is not always connected to. Even the server is not always up. To mount an NFS share in the past, I had some Device-Link icons on my KDE3 desktop. That worked fine. Now, SUSE 11.2 comes with KDE4. The NFS shares are properly configured in /etc/fstab as usual (including 'users' option). And now the big question: What is the official way to mount my NFS share on demand as an ordinary user?
Desktop icons are not KDE4ish. And the Device-Link method doesn't work either, because it apparently doesn't take care of /etc/fstab (i.e. the users option) and insists on root privileges. Also Dolphin is not able to mount NFS shares when I need it because it simply does not show them. The only way to mount my shares is to perform the mount command in a terminal session. But this couldn't be the truth with KDE4, isn't it?
We recently moved to a new home and I am trying to get my home file/print server set up again. Thanks to swerdna's excellent website, I got my server box (just upgraded from 11.0 to 11.2) running Samba and serving my shares over the network, and my "client" machines can access them without a problem.However, I'm not having much luck setting up CIFS mounts on my Linux desktop. I have my all-purpose user added to the Samba auth list (via smbpasswd), and configured my client as swerdna's howto's specify, and I can access the files just find. However, when I try to mount the shares with this command:
Code: mount -t cifs -o username=klein,password=klein //192.168.1.70/sharedmedia /home/zak/SharedMedia/ I get the following error:
I am using the mount command to mount Windows shared folders are another machine on my LAN, to have them show up in the Linux filesystem. The command mounts the folders just fine, however the access is read-only.
In the command, I am also using the -o option to specify a username and password that should have full access. Also, I have used this identical command on my other distros and it seems to work fine. I've Googled high and low, trying to find a way to specify a Samba user/password for authentication. I know one of the other distros had a program that I could specify a Samba user/password to simulate a Windows login.
I am using 11.3 on one machine and 11.2 on the other (a netbook). 11.4 won't install on either and 11.3 on the netbook fails to install as well.
I am using the same setup as I have always used when both systems ran 11.2 (details below) but now I can only mount a drive in one direction. In the other direction the mount command gets stuck with no error message until it eventually times out. I can ping and ssh the machines from each other without difficulty.
Even in the direction in which the mount apparently works (11.2 mounting a drive on the 11.3 machine) when I try to copy files across nothing actually happens.
exportfs -a was run successfully on the exporting machine, and nfsserver is running on both machines as does nfs client.
The exporting machine is 192.168.1.102 (eeelinux) and the other machine is 192.168.1.101 (nina).
Details: The /etc/exports file on the exporting machine (192.168.1.102) looks like this: eeelinux:/home/naima # more /etc/exports # See the exports(5) manpage for a description of the syntax of this file. # This file contains a list of all directories that are to be exported to # other computers via NFS (Network File System).
I'm running OpenSuse 11.2. I've got it running mostly the way I want and it connects to my wireless internet no problem. I have a external hard-drive on my Windows machine setup as a share folder. I can mount the drive with:
mount //10.13.23.2/D /home/james/mnt/win However when I do mount like this it doesn't give my any read/write privliages on the drive. Also on a slightly different issue but still mounting related I have my HDD partitioned into four main drives (not including swap etc). They are my Windows drive, a seperate storage partition formatted for Windows, my main linux drive and a seperate parition for linux storage.
I want to have my Windows drive, my Windows storage drive and my linux storage drive all mounted on boot. I tried adding these to fstab, and they mount fine but again I have no read/write permissions. My fstab looks like this:
Lastly I would like my Windows Share drive to mount on boot but I have been advised that I would need to write a shell script for this, to do network checks as obviously I won't always be connecting to my network.
Using Dolphin in Super-User mode, I can copy files and directories from the share to itself with no errors. Using Dolphin in Normal-user mode. I get the failure "Could not change permissions for...". The file is copied, but its owner,timestamp and permissions are wrong. If a subdirectory is involved, the copy aborts.
Using Windows XP I can copy files and directories from the share to itself with no errors.
Testing: If I mount with uid and gid, then my normal user can not access the share. mount.cifs //10.x.x.x/Data /home/stevej/Synology/Data/ --verbose -o user=stevej uid=stevej gid=users
Synology DS211 - There are 2 users on it. One of which is stevej and the other is julie. Rights RWX are applied to the users and the group called users. All files have stevej as the owner and users as the group with RWX Opensuse 11.4 - There are 2 pc's. One is run as stevej. The other pc runs as julie Windows 2000 - Runs as stevej and maps to the share as stevej.
Works as expected Windows XP - Runs as julie and maps the the share as julie. Works as expected Ultimately, I want the shares to automount at boot, or login and give the user full access. I have been to Swerdna's page and done as much as I can, but still no luck.
I'd like to have a CIFS drive mountable for various users. Each user uses different credentials and I want the drives to be automounted without using sudo-rights. I imagine the best thing to do would be to have the fstab entry point to multiple credentials files. Is there a way of doing that?
I'm working with OpenSusse 11.2. I installed and activated the NFS server via yast2. I exported the relevant directory via yast2 (NFS server configurastion) I'm trying to setup my Linux target to boot via NFS. The kernel boots up but fails to mount the file system. When looking on a capture from ethereal it can be found that the NFS server return error when client try to mount the /nfstest directory from this server. The returned error is 13
I have a Karmic server install on which I've set up a network drive mapping to a NAS (CIFS). I'm having trouble with automounting the disk though, as (from what I can tell) the disk is attempting to mount before the network is up.dmesg shows the following:
