Description Brian Kessler 2004-02-01 11:48:13 UTC
Experiencing this prob w/ all samba versions above 2.2.8a, on Linux 2.4.20-8, 
x86. configured samba w/ "--with-smbmount".  Problem exists w/ seemingly all 
possible samba configuration options...

Upon reboot, the following command executes successfully (once)...
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //host/share /mountpoint

a second attempt (any subsequent attempt for that matter) to mount another 
share of the same type causes the command to hang.  CTRL-C must be pressed to 
escape.  Interestingly enough, the mount is actually created.  This (bug?) 
makes it impossible to mount multiple smb shares via a script, as the script 
hangs after the first mount.

I cannot see a problem here. I have several smbfs mounts on several machines.
This works well, but otherwise it wouldn't be fixed anyway due to
unmaintainedness of smbfs. use cifs this days
