Unfortunately I can't move any files within my mounted Windows Server 2016 SMB share.


Creating files/directories
Delete files/directories
Read files/directories
Write to files/directories

Not working:

Move files with mv command

# ll
total 4
drwxrwxrwx 2 USERNAME USERNAME    0 Mar 26 11:01 ./
drwxr-xr-x 3 root   root   4096 Mar 23 14:06 ../
-rwxrwxrwx 1 USERNAME USERNAME    0 Mar 26 11:01 file1

# mv file1 file2
mv: cannot move 'file1' to 'file2': No such file or directory

mount options:


Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • Please show the output of ls -lb. I guess your filename has special characters in it which the -b flag would reveal. – PerlDuck Mar 26 '18 at 11:59
  • # ls -lb total 0 -rwxrwxrwx 1 USERNAME USERNAME 0 Mar 26 11:01 file1 – dhoeld Mar 26 '18 at 13:09
