Writing to windows from HPUX

I'd say within the last 18 months there was an article in the forums on how to set up a CIFS mount to a W2k8 server without going through all the CIFS commands of cifslogin, clifsmount, etc...

I have looked and looked but can't find that article. I have even used it successfully but can't find the article now.

Any help on locating it would be appreciated.

Re: Writing to windows from HPUX

What is the problem with cifsmount and cifslogin ? You only need to execute them once :
root# cifsmount -s //server/share /mountpoint
user$ cifslogin -U -P -s //server

This will store the mountpoint and the login credentials, and when your server ever reboots, the mount is made automatically again, and when your user (user$) ever needs to access the cifs mountpoint, it will log in automatically. No manual intervention anymore.

Re: Writing to windows from HPUX

Well I found my original inquiry http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1427884 but for some reason I can't get it to work now.

I tried your process the cifsmount worked fine but then you get to the 'user$'. which is a different user that root. I know the windows user I want to log in as, and I also know that users password, but I continually get "SRV: Bad password" and I know the password is correct. It is the "GOD" on our domain.

Pretty much the same results... I modified the process to verify it

# cifsmount //vpixos01:/x /tmp_mnt -U bubba
bubba's password on vpixos01:
SRV: Bad password
SRV: Bad password

and got the same results. Just to be extra certain I logged into a different windows server with the user/password combination and had no problem.


Well I tried one more thing (actually 2) I first did a cifsmount //vpixos01:/x /tmp_mnt
. Which mounted it. I then did a
cifslogin -U bubba -P redneck -D dom.ain //vpixos01/x and it apparently worked as I can now see what is in the shared drive.

Make sure your Win2K8 has that patch too... I forgot the Microsoft Patch though but your WIndows folks should know it.
