FYI, I have setup CIFS mounts on SUSE Linux systems without problems.
Here I'm using:
mount -t cifs //akr-nas01/teamdrives -o username=xxxxxx, passowrd=xxxxxx /mnt/win
Error -22 is a generic error and not useful. Perhaps verbose mode will show more info:
# mount --verbose -t cifs ....
There have most likely been samba-client updates since the base 5.8 release. You might want to check your current version:
# yum list samba*client
samba-client.x86_64 3.0.33-3.39.el5_8 installed
samba3x-client.x86_64 3.5.10-0.110.el5_8 el5_latest
[root@akr-odba1 ~ 10:43 AM]# mount --verbose -t cifs //akr-cronjob/crm2 -o username=xxxxxx,passowrd=xxxxx /mnt/crm2
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //akr-cronjob/crm2,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
[root@akr-odba1 ~ 02:15 PM]# yum list samba*client
Loaded plugins: security
Error: No matching Packages to list
The verbose command gives the same amout of information. It looks as if the samba client is not installed.
Since this is an ODA (Oracle Database Appliance) does this matter?
You don't need the smbclient, but the samba-client also installs mount.cifs, which is used when you use mount -t cifs. The samba-client is installed by default. The kernel cifs module is only the driver, which is also required, but you also need the mount.cifs interface.
