Description Marcia Moulin 2006-08-05 13:31:13 UTC
We have a proprietary IEI NAS-4100 box serving out files via Samba/SMB. We have been successfully creating mount points to this share in order to read/write files from/to it for several years now. It has always worked flawlessly when using various different versions (old and new) of SuSE, and it also seems to work flawlessly from our RHEL AS 4 servers.

However when I use the following command (some details x’d out for security reasons): -

mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx //192.168.x.x/xxxxx /media/xxxxx

On a fully updated CentOS release 4.3 (Final), I get the following output: -

(on screen)
smb_retry: no connection process
smb_add_request: request [deb64e80, mid=0] timed out!
smb_delete_inode: could not close inode 2

(CentOS RPM versions)
samba-common-3.0.10-1.4E.6.2
samba-client-3.0.10-1.4E.6.2
kernel-2.6.9-34.0.2.EL (un-tainted)

(RHEL 4 AS RPM versions)
samba-common-3.0.10-1.4E.6.2
samba-client-3.0.10-1.4E.6.2
kernel-smp-2.6.9-34.0.2.EL (tainted, but nothing related to network/smb)

we don't maintain smbfs.  No one does actually.  Suggest you check with RedHat or try the cifs fs instead.  Details at http://linux-cifs.samba.org/
