I am relatively new to Linux, and I am trying to mount a CIFS filesystem from an openfiler instance I have on my network in Red Hat. The openfiler instance is authenticating using AD.
I am able to connect using samba:
smbclient '\\10.25.214.26\cluster_storage.cluster.Cluster' -U [DOMAIN]+[USERNAME] Enter DOMAIN+USERNAME's password: Domain=[DOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.6] smb: \>
When I attempt to mount on boot via fstab, I am told that the line is bad during startup.
mount -t cifs -o username=[DOMAIN]+[USERNAME], password=[my password], domain=[domain.edu] '\\10.25.214.26\cluster_storage.cluster.Cluster' /mnt/scratch
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
May not be this… but try forward slashes “/” instead of back slashes “\” in your specification of the share location.
Update: As per the comments the below, the possible low hanging fruit of slashes was not it, but perhaps we are still dealing with a syntax issue. Take a look at the format provided here for various cases (including fstab syntax): https://access.redhat.com/solutions/448263
