Scorpion Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 Right i've installed vortexbox on to a Xen Server which is also running Windows XP with multiple shares (Music, Video) the Vortexbox is an automatic music ripper/sharer. The problem that i am having is linking my windows share Music to the Vortexbox on autoboot (both OS have static IP's) i saw that entering this code in /etc/fstab //192.168.11.13/Music /storage/music cifs credentials=/etc/my_share.credentials,rw 0 0 on its own line should mount that at startup so when the machine is ripping cd's for the windows machine it will save it on there instead of its own. when i run the next line mount -a i get this whole error list CIFS VFS: No username specifed CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22 mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.11.13/Music, missing codepahe or helper program, or other error (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program) In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg ¦ tail or so but the file my_share.credentials contains the username and password like it should be placed username=USERNAME password=PASSWORD I'm at a loss here i've been searching vortexbox forums and thats where i got the code from and googling gave the same result. the mount can be done manually and it works but i like things on auto. (little info Vortexbox is based on Fedora 11) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
