Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Unable To Mount Samba Version 3 Share?
Aug 3, 2010
I've just loaded a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04, and I am unable to mount a samba share from an older Red Hat server. The problem first occurred when I tried using "Places -> Network" or "Places -> Connect to server", and the server's log gives me something like this
[2010/08/03 15:40:38, 1] auth/auth_server.c:check_smbserver_security(363)
password server 10.100.1.2 rejected the password: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
[2010/08/03 15:40:38, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(319)
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
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've began to work on getting my access control, set up properly on my server, and want to create a "my documents" folder for each user I add. I do not want it being part of the home directory and have read everything and still can't seem to get it to work. I've got a second drive that is mounted at /private on my server, with a folder that is underlying on it call users and groups. Then from there is has the exact unix username that I set up in Users and Groups. Ex. /private/user/gary . With Samba, I added the following code:
[My Documents] guest ok = no comment = %u's Documents
I've tried using %u,%U,%S, and the normal username and of all of them, it will only work with the username. I've even used force user. added root to the valid users list and it still gives me access denied or the multiple connections to a single share with multiple user names prohibited but nothing is mounted on this share. On Webmin, it doesn't show any connections to the share. I'm rather at a stumped state in which is frustrating me, because I want to have this so when I go from my desktop to my laptop I have "My Documents" On either unit. Security on the server is set to User because I've searched to see if I can't find a way to make shares visible by a guest but read only to them and when I access them from my log in to make it read write using the "Share" option.
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:
ServerA has an NFS Mount to ServerB at mount point /home/qlogger/logs
I can cd to /home/qlogger/logs on ServerA and see the contents as they would be on ServerB (NFS Working with proper permissions rw).
I have a samba share setup on ServerA to share the NFS Mounted Directory (/home/qlogger/logs)
I connect with my windows host and am able to view the files and folders. I can create folders just fine however; when I go to copy a file from the windows machine to the samba share I receive a message saying the file is locked.
I have disabled oplocks in samba and the problem still persists.
I have sent the last 5 hours (it is now 6am) and I am in no mood for lazy know-it-all'sI have returned begging and crawling back to Ubuntu (I waited a day for 10.10 to be released) and I have again stumbled across why I go back to Micro$oft's Windows.All I want to do it have a permanent share to my nas, which is on my Netgear DGND3300.I can reach it by Place -> Network -> Windows Network -> NAKALEEN -> NAS -> USB_Storagebut for the life of me I can't make it permanent. I need it as all my Movies/TV/eBooks are on this.I have followed every and I mean EVERY option I have found on Google with no luck. From the fstab/mount option to the gvfs option (as you can guess both failed)The reason it is *$&^%$^&%$ me off it that Windows can do it with a couple of mouse presses (Map Network drive). Making Ubuntu a joke in this area.
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.
I am trying to mount a file server directory on a client machine. I tried using NFS, but could not mount the share on the client. Several respobses were given to a post on this problem. but I still was not able mount the NFS share. I decided to try instead to mount the directory as a Samba share because I can already access it using Samba from windows, or from KDE or Gnome using smb://fileserver as a desktop location icon URL. When I try to mount the Samba share I get error messages that nearly identical those that occurred with NFS. . Here are some of the setup parameters
CentOS 5.4 on client and server behind a D-Link router server IP: 192.168.0.44 (can ping it client) client IP: 192.168.0.101 (can ping from server)
This is the only error message that these commands have produced in the messages log, secure log or smbd log for either machine. My immediate goal is to set up the simplest possible local mount that will allow Grsync to backup to the file server.
I am trying to properly mount a samba share in order to access it from a terminal and run a script that I've written over a folder in the share. How could I do that? I tried smbclient but after successfully logging in I couldn't issue the sh command. Isn't it possible to have it mounted in the /mnt folder like a normal filesystem?
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 have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I am not able to configure nfs mounted disk for shareing samba. i have a server X. which configure samba for windows XP client this is done. now i have export X server samba share disk to mount Y server using nfs. this is mount and ok. but i don't share this disk using Y server samba configure.
I just set up an ubuntu 9.10 server (no desktop environment, command line only) and I'm unable to see my samba share. I followed these instructions. Here are the relevant parts of my smb.conf file: Quote:
workgroup = JASONGROUP # I un-commented this security = user
My server info: SUSE 11.3 , authenticated against LDAP, I am able to log in using LDAP credentials. I did run smbpasswd -w password
After I configured the smb.conf file, I try to do this on the Terminal to make sure it will work in Windows machines but I got this error:
user@mybox:~> smbclient -L mybox.mydomain.com Enter user's password: (I enter the user password here) Connection to mybox.mydomain.com failed (Error NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED)
so I went to /var/log/samba.log to check the error file, I got this :
Connection to LDAP server failed for the 1 try! [2010/12/10 18:08:50.919813, 1] lib/smbldap.c:1330(another_ldap_try) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 2 try! [2010/12/10 18:08:52.133624, 1] lib/smbldap.c:1330(another_ldap_try) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 3 try!
and it kept going on and on until I stop it.
Here is my smb.conf file, please take a look to see what I've done wrong here. I tried to to take out WORKGROUP in GLOBAL but there were error like " Work group name x.x.x.com is too long, so I put in WORKGROUP = etc.

I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
im trying to get a network setup i followed the instruction via gentoo wiki samba what i have done
then i did chmod 777 to the shared folders on both machines went into nautilus it sees the folder but it will not mount the folder showing the error msg:"unable to mount location failed to mount windows share" ive been searching unbuntu forums opensuseforums and google for an answer to this issue but as of right now anything that i have tried to do has failed and nothing seems to be working.
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".
i have a ubuntu 10.10 desktop and laptop. i installed samba, and smbfs. i shared a folder on each computer. when i browse the network i can see the laptop from the laptop, and can see the desktop from the laptop, but i cant see the laptop from the desktop. when i try to mount the share it says unable to mount, but mounts it anyway...but, i need to be able to mount it so that rsync will see the shares as a dir on the desktop. i tried manually mounting via smbmount following several threads that i found, and i keep getting error sudo smbmount //192.168.1.78/share /media/laptop Password: Unable to find suitable address
that is as far as i've been able to get. i've looked and have only been able to find threads about windows shares, not between 2 ubuntu machines. and i dont know why laptop can see the desktop but not the other way around. they have identical smb.conf files
I have recently put Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a lab computer for use as a file server, but I cannot seem to get our Windows computers to see the Ubuntu share or vise versa.
I right clicked the folder, said share, and did the samba install.I edited the samba smb.conf file per the discussions here, I edited the nsswitch.conf file per the discussion here, I installed winbind, I disabled the firewall, and I rebooted and tried tearing down the share and re-sharing. Nothing seems to work. When I try to access the folders on the windows computers, I get "Failed to retrieve share list from server". When I try to access the ubuntu machine from Windows I get nothing. I have done a ping from each machine to the other and they have no trouble. As far as I know there are no firewalls between the two computers as the Windows computers can see each other's shares just fine and I've never had issues with ports getting blocked with any of our experiments.
The workgroup for all of the Windows machines is UEDA_LAB and I made that change in smb.conf as well as putting the computer name love218-legolas.
I have attached my smb.conf and nsswitch.conf files.
My main goal is to get the ubuntu folder seen by the Windows computers (for read/write/etc) so that it can be used as a file server.
I have noticed that I am not the first one to have problems with samba and connecting to a Windows PC. I have read so many articles and I have tried a couple of things that seemed to make sense, but no luck.
I can connect from my Vista to my Ubuntu netbook remix, but not the other way around. I get the error message: "Unable to mount location", "failed to mount windows share" and I get "mount error 12 = Cannot allocate memory" in Smb4K.
There was a suggestion that "mount error 12 = Cannot allocate memory" indicated it was a problem originating in Vista, but the added registry values on my Vista PC that was suggested didn't change anything. I have also read and [URL] and implemented 3.1 and 3.2 but it made no difference either.
My network was running happily with no problems. After clicking "Places," then "Network," I double-clicked "Windows Network." My wife's laptop appeared merrily ready to be clicked. I browsed through and accessed the "Public" folder. Ubuntu auto-mounted the "Public" folder on the Windows Vista machine to the desktop.
THE REASON:I wanted to change the icon to a disk so it would mimic a "mapped" drive like in Windows. I right-clicked the shared folder mounted on the desktop, clicked "Properties," and then clicked the picture of the folder. I then clicked through to "/usr/share/icons/Human/scalable/devices" and selected the "drive-harddisk.svg" icon. The icon changed and I could still browse. I unmounted and re-mounted the folder with no problems, then changed back the disk to the regular folder icon.
THE PROBLEM: After restarting the computer, if I click "Places," then "Network," then double-click "Windows Network," I'm greeted with the following error message: Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server.
WORKAROUND: Opening Firefox and typing smb://IP-of-wife's-laptop shows the share list. I can open and access the "Public" folder no problem.
My network has several machines on it. They are all connected to a single router. Two of the machines are running Windows Vista, one Windows XP and one Fedora 11. When I go to places.network, I see an icon that says Windows Network. If I click on it, I get the message: Unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server. When I had Ubuntu running on this machine, I had no problem seeing and connecting to the Windows Vista machine.
I want to mount a samba share form another Ubuntu pc.
With nautilus I can do: smb://xxxxxxx;firstname.lastname@example.org/sharedfolder/ And i can browse the shared folder without problem
but I want to mount it. I have tried:
Code: user@compu:~$ sudo mount -t smbfs //192.168.1.12/sharedfolder /mnt/folder -o username=username mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.64/esco3, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
Im aware I'm not passing the password and I was hoping it would ask me. Also I'd like to store all that info in my computer and try to auto mount the shared every time i use the pc.
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?
