CIFS mount permission denied

Hello Expert,

 

I am trying to share one folder "HealthcareImages" from windows 2008 and mount it on HP-UX 11.31. I am using CIFS to share and mount it on HP-UX. The procedure I followed is:

 

1. on Windows : set shared permission of folder "\\bnhfsdr1\Public\BNL\HealthcareImages\" to dmsuser and to Everyone as well.

2. On HP-UX:

vi /etc/opt/cifsclient/cifsclient.cfg

domain = "BNH.com"

# vi/etc/rc.config.d/cifsclient

RUN_CIFSCLIENT=1

# /sbin/init.d/cifsclient start

cifsmount SERVER:/PATH/TO/SHARE /PATH/TO/MOUNTPOINT -s
cifslogin SERVER –U (username)  -P (password) –D (domain name) -s

cifslist –u ( to list the user assigned for cifs)

 

The O/P of cifsmount are below:

 

# cifsmount bnhfsdr1:\Public\BNL\HealthcareImages  /bea/bea/user_projects/domains/BNHDomain/applications/IIMS/document/MedicalPhoto -s

#

#

>Escaping or quoting the backslashes might work.

 

That's what I think I was using many years ago before I gave into the darkside.

I'm not sure if I thought to use a slash.

Re: CIFS mount permission denied

At this point it's not clear to me if this is a client-side or server-side issue.  You mentioned you have a production environement where things are working correctly.  Can the production HP-UX CIFS Client successfully mount the shared filesystem from the DR Windows Server, or does this fail with permission denied?  Can the DR HP-UX CIFS Client successfully mount the shared filesystem from the PRODUCTION Windows Server?

 

Have you compared the contents of the /etc/opt/cifsclient/cifsclient.cfg file on the production and DR HP-UX CIFS Clients to see if there are any differences?  What is "authenticationMethod" set to in this file on both DR and production clients?

 

Also, do you see any messages in the following file on the failing HP-UX DR CIFS client:

 

/var/opt/cifsclient/debug/client-log.<pid-of-cifsclient-daemon>

Re: CIFS mount permission denied

Hello Dave,

 

Thnaks for the mail and an initative to help me out. I am not a very expert on cifs as I have used it very rarely and may be 3-4times only. I compare cifsclient.cfg from production and DR HP-ux and didn't find any difference. I tried mounting production windows on DR hp-ux and getting same permission denied and also tried mounting DR windows on production hp-ux with same error.

 

1. Atatched is the debug logs from DR hp-ux

2. DR server configuration details

3. production server configuration details.

 

The only difference I can find is on production server Network sharing file services is running and on DR this is not running but I think it required also. I ma trying to add that feature on DR windows server for Network sharing file services but getting some issues in that also. Checking with windows admin. But is it required?

Re: CIFS mount permission denied

I'm not a CIFS expert, but since CIFS involves sharing files via the network, I'd expect Network Sharing File Services would have to be enabled for this to work.

Re: CIFS mount permission denied

Hi Dave,

 

Thanks again for the reply.

I am working with windows admin to look into this issue and add network file sharing services features. When I am trying to add it is giving some error so involved windows team to look into it.

 

In the mean time appreciate if you can just have a look on the logs shared and confirm everythig is fine other than this, It will be very much appreciated.

Re: CIFS mount permission denied

Again, I'm not familiar with CIFS so I don't know what to look for in the log files. However, when I see lines like "2014-05-13 15:35:20.710 [16] pslsocket: connection reset by server bnhfsdr1" in the log file it makes me think the server is not configured correctly.
