I'm trying to mount a cifs share using:
sudo mount \ -t cifs \ -o credentials=$HOME/.smbcredentials \ //server.example.com/Common/Share/Path /mnt/mountpoint
Which fails with:
Retrying with upper case share name mount error(6): No such device or address Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Watching /var/log/syslog shows that there is some sort of dns problem:
Jun 4 18:06:12 laptop key.dns_resolver: DFSAPP03: No address associated with name Jun 4 18:06:12 laptop kernel: [ 1807.650756] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6
Does anybody know what the return code -6 means, or how I might go about debugging this problem?
