Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 Server. On the server I have installed Samba.

In /etc/samba/smb.conf I've defined a directory that should be shared out, as follows:

[ndata]
path = /srv/array1/dataspool
available = yes
valid users = backup
read only = no
browseable = yes
public = no
;public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes

The user "backup" is already defined in Ubuntu. From the /etc/passwd file:

backup:x:34:34:backup:/var/backups:/bin/sh

The samba user "backup" is added using smbpasswd -a backup. And then sudo /etc/init.d/smbd restart to restart the samba-server.

I also have a Synology DiskStation (DS411j; DSM 5.0). On the Synology I want to mount the shared folder.

So, in the WebGUI of the DS, I specify:

protocol: CIFS
folder:   \\10.0.1.220\ndata
account:  backup
password: ****** <the password set on the server above
map to:   <mount point>

But when I try to commit the mount, it comes back with this "Failed to connect to the remote folder. Please make sure the remote server is accessible via CIFS protocol". [edit] Here's what I find in dmesg of the DS:

[92567.090000]  CIFS VFS: Send error in QFSAttributeInfo = -13
[92567.100000]  CIFS VFS: Send error in QFSUnixInfo = -13
[92567.100000]  CIFS VFS: cifs_read_super: get root inode failed
[92580.100000]  CIFS VFS: Send error in QFSAttributeInfo = -13
[92580.110000]  CIFS VFS: cifs_read_super: get root inode failed
[92788.870000]  CIFS VFS: Send error in QFSAttributeInfo = -13
[92788.880000]  CIFS VFS: cifs_read_super: get root inode failed

What could I be doing wrong? Any suggestions?
