The /sbin/umount.cifs file is missing on RHEL 6 server

Hello all.

We have a RHEL 6.10 server that is missing the /sbin/umount.cifs file.

The vendor responsible for the application running on this server claims they need /sbin/umount.cifs.

As shown here, we have the samba-client package installed, so why is the /sbin/umount.cifs file missing?

samba-client-3.6.23-52.el6_10.x86_64
cifs-utils-4.8.1-20.el6.x86_64
samba-common-3.6.23-52.el6_10.x86_64

Please explain.

Thank you.

Below are the binary files , which come along with the package for the 3 packages you have previously mentioned . The umount.cifs utility is typically not needed if unmounts need only be performed by root users, or if user mounts and unmounts can rely on specifying explicit entries in /etc/fstab

cifs-utils-4.8.1-20.el6.x86_64:
/sbin/mount.cifs
/usr/bin/getcifsacl
/usr/bin/setcifsacl
/usr/sbin/cifs.idmap
/usr/sbin/cifs.upcall
