smbmount to XP returns ERRDOS - ERRnomem
Posted on 2004-03-20
On one of my Linux boxes, I've been using
smbmount //xpserver1/temp /mnt/temp
just fine for a few weeks. It would prompt for a password, but it didn't matter what I put in, since I set up the share on the XP Pro side to allow any user, and can modify files.
But since yesterday, I run that same smbmount command, and I get
3744: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnomem (Insufficient server memory to perform the requested function.)
I've searched Samba forums hight and low... no luck. There are no updates on my WinXP box, that I know of... and no user accounts/passwords have changed, etc. There is of course plenty of memory available on the XP box too. I reboot, with nothing started, and it's the same.
The best I can come up with so far on the web sites is: (1) something about old lanman being disallowed on XP (but I didn't do anything to network config), (2) one guy had partition magic on his XP box, which screwed up samba (???) but I don't know how that could be.
My smbmount is at version 3.0.2-6.3E, RHES3.0
I can connect with smbmount to other XP boxes fine, just not the one I want!
