Not mounting ploplinux on PXE boot
« on: April 06, 2010, 12:45:39 PM »
I'm sure this is an easy answer but I can't seem to find too much on it apart from this thread which didn't get a response from the OP: http://forum.plop.at/index.php/topic,17.0.html

I'm, basically, getting the exact same problem and have followed the tutorial closely.

I tried using the mount suggestion after booting from a CD, as the response suggested above, but I'm getting the following error:

Code: [Select]
mount: unknown filesystem type "smbfs"

Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

The same command as stated in the post linked above.

Code: [Select]
mount //10.0.0.103/ploplinux /mnt -o username=[user]

Hmm, yeah that's a good point, the share is on a Windows 2008 box.

Ok, apologies. I should have done some basic checks before I posted.

Incase anyone hits the same problem: I was using a DNS name for my server. Once reverted to the IP I then got a "permission denied" so I simply created a new restricted AD account just for the share ("Change" share permission required).

It is now reading the network share fine.

Thanks for your help Elmar.
