mount NTFS share under RHEL (older version)
Posted on 2010-03-31
I've made a folder with "mkdir -p /mnt/bcmv" and now I would like to mount a windows share if possible
I tried the following, but it did not work:
mount -t cifs //server/bcmv$ -o username=myusername,password=mypassword /mnt/bcmv
mount: fs type cifs not supported by kernel
the I found that in older versions of RHEL smbfs should be used, but got a different error and now I am stuck:
mount -t smbfs -o username=myusername,password=mypassword //server/bcmv$ /mnt/bcmv
1779: session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)
SMB connection failed
i can however login to a windows machine as myusername and access the share.
additionally myusername has full share permissions on the share and everyone has full ntfs permissions too
"uname -a" returns the following so what does that make it RHEL 3 or 4
Linux machinename 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL #1 SMP Tue May 17 17:52:26 EDT 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
what am I doing wrong and/or how do I mount the share?
