Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Mount CIFS

Jul 14, 2010

I am getting an error when I try to mount a CIFS file-system via terminal:

cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

If I Places > Connect to server, it will open just fine. The share is also accessible from all the other computers on the network.

Google search brought me here to an archived thread which gave a different error number (!)

Desktop is Ubuntu 10,4LTS/Gnome; fresh install with no additional packages installed (so it's possible I am missing something but not sure what!)

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Mount Location / Failed To Mount Windows Share

Jul 26, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card.My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP.The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.Suddenly I am now getting this error "Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share" whenever I try to access the desktop folders from the laptop.I suspect an upgrade is the culprit, but not sure.

Networking :: Unable To Mount Location: Failed To Mount Windows Share

Mar 21, 2010

i'm trying to connect to the three other machines in my house but am having quite a hard time doing so. i've never had a problem in the past with ubuntu, but, with 9.1 and windows 7, things have gotten a bit harder. i'm running 9.1 and my roommates are running windows 7. i've installed, set up and configured samba and i can see the computers on my network, but any time i try to access either of the drives, it says unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share.

I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my friend's laptop. The biggest problem is getting his iPhone 4 to mount. On libimobiledevice.org it shows a cool video of a guy managing his iPhone with Linux thanks to libimobiledevice. libimobiledevice.org also says libimobiledevice supports the iPhone 4. But when he plugs it in, he gets an error that says:

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And External Drive - Unable To Mount Location - Failed To Mount Windows Share - Dialog Box

May 25, 2010

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.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Mount Specific Directory Via CIFS?

Aug 19, 2011

I have a bootable utility toolset that I put together with Fedora 14, one of its primary functions is to map a user designated share via script and access information from it. The command that I used, that functioned perfectly, in Fedora 14 was:

Code:
sudo mount -t cifs -o user=provided.account.name //file-server.mydomain.com/share/images /mnt/source

Ubuntu :: Unable To Play Audio CD's Or Video DVD's - Unable To Mount Disc: Location Is Not Mountable

May 24, 2010

I'm totally unable to play or mount audio CDs and unable to use video DVD's on my box right now. When I insert an audio CD I get a dialog box saying:

Unable to mount disc: Location is not mountable

and if I check messages in the Log File Viewer I see the following text repeated (save for the last line) a couple of dozen times.

Code:

May 24 13:04:37 Amber kernel: [ 6680.434685] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE

May 24 13:04:37 Amber kernel: [ 6680.434695] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Illegal mode for this track

[code]...

on a similar but ultimately unrelated thread someone was asked to enter a few commands so I tried them and the following was the output:

Code:

main@Amber:~$ ls /dev/scd*
/dev/scd0
main@Amber:~$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0

[code]...

An error occurred: Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file. As far as I can tell I have the relevant CSS libraries installed I'm lost without being able to play CD's and DVD's on my system.

Ubuntu :: OpenMotif : Create Network Location Link As Local Filesystem Location?

Apr 26, 2011

I'm working with a program that uses Open Motif to create all of the widgets, including the Open File dialog box (obviously). However, Open Motif being kinda old-timey, 80's vintage, and for the most part now an abandoned project, it is quite clunky. So, actually what I need to do is to open some files located on my work server. I have already successfully connected to the relevant server directories with Samba, and with programs built with GTK+ (such as GIMP) I can open files across the network because I have created a bookmark in Nautilus, and those bookmarks appear in the Open File dialog box created by GTK+. Now, Open Motif is different: it doesn't see network locations, orNautilus shortcuts. When I type "smb://serveripyadayada" in the search folder, it really doesn't like it and complains. So, what do I do? Can I get somehow Open Motif to open a network location? Or can I do a run-around and place a shortcut in the file system that points to the network location?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Location?

Feb 22, 2010

I have some shared folders on my laptop, most of which I can access from any other machine in the house. But one returns an error every time from any PC. I open the Places menu, select network, choose the machine and get a set of shared folders. But when I try to open this one I get an error message "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows Share". All the machines are running Ubuntu 9.04 or better. No problem with any other shared folder, and the permissions are the same for all.

I worked around it by creating another folder, copying everything across, and sharing it with the usual perfect result.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Mount Location

Nov 29, 2010

I have two Windoze 7 laptops (i know, i'm evil) one Windoze Vista desktop, one Android 7" tablet, one Windows mobile 6.1 PDA and one Ubuntu 10.10 laptop. everything can read and write to everything except for the Ubuntu machine. i Can't see the Ubuntu machine from windoze or the droid, and like wise, my windoze and droid can not see the Ubuntu laptop. I keep getting the error "UNABLE TO MOUNT LOCATION", "Failed to retrieve share list from server."

this is what I have tried. Followed about 20 videos on you tube (to no avail.) Edited my smb.conf file (to no avail.) Uninstalled then reinstalled samba (to no avail.) Smashed my head into the screen several times (to no avail.)I was able to get 9.10 & 10.4 working O.K. But 10.10 has got me stumped. I did a search through this forum, but nothing seems to work. I don't restart Samba, I restart the laptop (better?)

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Filesystem?

Jun 24, 2010

when I try to boot into Ubuntu 9.10 the first thing that happens is this:

Filesystem checks are in progress

I have seen this on a few occasions and thought nothing of it, I have let them complete in the past and was able to boot no problem, but recently that has changed, whether or not I let the checks complete I get the following error:

Mount of filesystem failed.43708f-0498-4699-9fd5-1f52df0bc181
A maintenance shell will now be started.

Any thoughts on recovering this partition or at least gaining enough access to it to backup some data?

Fedora :: Browse Encrypted LVM2 - Unable To Mount Location

Aug 10, 2009

I have no idea what I'm doing so here goes: I installed Fedora and clicked the "encrypted" box during the process. What I want to do now is "browse" the volume using "File Browser" but I only get messages like, "Unable to mount location, org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Disks.Error.Failed: Not a mountable file system". Why cannot I not see the files? I have the password. I would like to be able to move, delete, rename, etc files but that seems impossible because I cannot access the drive.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares 'Unable To Mount Location'

on 10.04 I clicked to share my music folder with the network (other computer also having 10.04) and it installed samba for me. I restarted expecting to find sharing working as it had on the other computer by doing the exact same thing. But for some strange reason I can't access the shares on either computer through the network workgroup. It just says "Unable to Mount Location".

General :: Fdisk Displays No Results - Unable To Mount Location

Mar 5, 2011

I've just installed Debian 6 on an old pc so i can use it as a file server.As far as i know installation went fine but it didn't detect my Edimax wireless network card.The problem I'm having is using FDISK. I tried to explore my CD drive and i got an error message "Unable to mount location". I wanted to see if there was an installer to install my network card becuase the manufacturer says it's supported by Linux. When i use the su - command and try using fdisk -l it just displays the command prompt and no hdd info. I tried it the other day becuase I want to mount all the physical drives and one logical volume. This is only the first step for me configuring this computer as a server and i'm suck already and ready to give up and try Windows server (whcih i don't really want to do).Has anyone got any ideas how i can mount my cdrom and why FDISK isn't working?
