Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Mount Share Via Nautilus?
Jan 21, 2011
used to work perfectly with my password being memorised and all, I would click on network, select the desired pc and access my shares on the network perdectly. As far as I can say nothing has changed, same username and password and workgroup, however when I now select the computer I desired to connect in Nautilus it ask for my password and username (which I know), but it doesn't connect, it continually ask for it.
The weirdest part (which make me believe the problem comes from my machine) is I can mount the network drive using "mount -t smbfs", with my usual login details Why has the graphical nautilus interface stopped working?
My computer is connected to the college lan where almost all machines are some variant of Windows OS. If i use Places > Network, while windows network is displayed, mostly it returns unable to mount shares, my workaround for this problem is I use some tool like nbtscan to see which hosts are up and then use network > Connect to Server > windows share and type in the ip address, this mounts the windows share even though Places> network doesn't display such hosts. My question is there some command line way where I can invoke nautilus to mount the windows share, ie the same job connect to server > windows share does? And is there some application like say lan surfer for windows which lists all the folders shared by a windows client.
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 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 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'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.
My Ubuntu Desktop (9.10, 64-bit) VM can't connect to my Windows 7 (64-bit, Ultimate) File Share using Nautilus. I enter "smb://<comuterName>" in the address bar and then it comes up with a password dialog (see screenshot) and then after entering the correct login info, the dialog disappears for a second or two but then reappears again. The dialog always comes back up and the share is never mounted. Connecting from an XP box on the network to the windows 7 share works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine to the windows 7 share using the appropriate 'smbmount' command works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine (using the nautilus GUI) to the XP box (password protected) works just fine. Then I turned off password protection in Win7, rebooted the win7 machine, and still all of the above tests turned out the same. And the Ubuntu machine still doesn't connect to the windows share using the nautilus GUI, and still displays the password dialog even though no password is required anymore. I tried using smbclient to view the shares, here is the output (not sure if I should be trying something else using the smbclient program):eddie@eddie-ubuntu:~$ smbclient -L eddie-win7 Enter eddie's password: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
I'd like to know how to connect Ubuntu to the windows 7 share using the nautilus GUI. If it's a bug, I'd like to file it (I think it is). But first I would like some direction trouble-shooting to make sure it is in fact a bug. (I think I read elsewhere on this forum that someone connected Karmic to win7 share, so maybe it's not a reproducible bug. But then again, maybe they weren't using 64-bit Karmic...)
I can use smbclient -U name //ip.adresss/"My Place" to connect with no errors, but nautilus will not open the folder. nautilus discovers the computer but not the folder. maybe I need some debugging info from nautilus...
equivalent of "force_user" when sharing with nautilus-share? To put this question into context, I have shared out a folder with "Allow others to create ..." and "Guest Access ..." turned on via the GUI (I believe nautilus-share is applicaition behind the GUI). When Guest accounts create files or folders, I want the owner of the files or folders to be a specific user, rather then "nobody". In a Samba Server, I know you can use the parameter "force_user" in the smb.conf (under an individual sharename) which will specify the owner of the files and subfolders created through the share.
I have tried to add this parameter to the files created in /var/lib/samba/usershares but the owner of the files and folders are still "nobody" (NOTE: I rebooted the PC after making the change to the file) I have just done a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop with nothing else installed (except the current Updates and the necessary components needed when sharing folders) As a follow on question, I also want to set the permissions for files and folders. To replicate what the "create_mask", "force_create_mode", "directory_mask" and "force_directory_mode" parameters do within a Samba Server.
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.
So I have the strange task of trying to make something like I said above work in Lubuntu 10.04. But every time I do, the share is not accessible because none of the important permissions (other) can be set because its, well, NTFS in linux. And I know of no way to fix it.Is there an easy way, preferably with Nautilus since the person I am setting this up for isn't a computer expert, to setup this share so thats its accessible and writable by other computers on the network?
I'm trying to mount a windows share (that mac users use) using:mount -t cifs //x.x.x.x/Graphics /mnt/graphics -o username=x,password=x,iocharset=utf8.It mounts ok for the most part, but where the mac users put bullets in front of their file names, ubuntu displays questions marks. I've tried this without the iocharset as well and same result when I execute ll -l.
in a nutshell im trying to share 2 HDD's in same machine with several windows machines1. auto login so no welcome screen.2. auto mount the drives3. share the drives with/without password 1 is fine, i did resolve issue 2 with "storage device manager" but no matter what i do i cant get it to load correctly as i cant remove the option "mount file system in read only mode" so i cant create/move/delete anything. i did also change the owner for when it mounts off root to my user, but still no avail.and i can share the drives using ubuntu, but i also have samba.not important
Code:also another 2 Q's for after i have sorted this, i need ubuntu to shut down when i simplypress the off button as this will have no mouse, keyboard or TFT attached.so then i can simply press the on button and within a min or so i can just connect to my 'network drives' and then also to enable a remote desktop viewer, i did try the inbuilt 1 but couldnt connect with my win 7 machines
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.
After latest updates on Ubuntu 9.10 desktop today - network connection to Samba share on a network drive have stopped working. I'm getting following error in Nautilus Error: Failed to mount Windows share Please select another viewer and try again.
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 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 have an ntfs external hd; I can mount and use it fine, without entry in fstab, but not share stuff. That is to say: I can use nautilus / thunar to share folders on it without errors, but they are not accessible via the network. The issue may be that the mount point has permissions 700. I can solve that by Code:sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank -o umask=0,nls=utf8or by setting umask=022 in fstab, but then I can't mount it as user anymore; if I set fstab to
Code: /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank ntfs-3g user,umask=022,nls=utf8,defaults 0 0 I get this when I try to mount it as user in the filebrowser:
I'm trying to connect to the other computers on the network in my house, but, when I try to view the main file folders it tells me "unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share" I've looked everywhere I can think of and have done everything they've told me to do, and I still can't get it to work.
which in the past has mounted the windows share without any problems.For some reason this doesn't work anymore. The .smbcredentials file is in the same place it has been since it was created. I have verified that .smbcredentils is in the correct place.In order to find out what the problem might be, I tried
dmesg | tail
and got the following response
[ 18.428245] type=1503 audit(1272697118.037:15): operation="capable" pid=1249 parent=1245 profile="/usr/sbin/cupsd" name="sys_admin" [ 18.432914] usb 1-1: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'usb' sets config #1 [ 19.516273] CIFS VFS: No username specified
I can't pretend that I understand the full message, but it seems to say that it can't find/read the .smbcredentials file and as a result can't mount the share. When I change the code to
where xxxx is my username and password, the share mounts without any problems.I can't work out what I am doing wrong. Has the code changed? For obvious security reasons I don't want to place the username and password in the fstab file where everyone can see it.
I have a usb 1tb drive that I want to share over my netowork, but when i share it through nautilus, it doesn't mount right on other computers, ect. Is there a way to mount it. The location of the drive is /media/FreeAgent Drive___
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 a router running IPCOP with a 30 gig drive. I know the OS doesnt need that much space for a router. Can IPCOP mount and share out another partition on the same hard drive its installed on to my windows computers on my network?
When i open my network all my computers and other terms show up but when i click on them all i get is cannot mount failed to retrieve share list from server im running ubuntu 10.10 and gnome i thought i had samba4 all installed what else could i be missing.
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?
