I have a SUSE SLES 11 box running samba. I am running this command:
mount -t cifs //ip/dir1/dir2 /mnt/backups -o username=user,password=pwd,domain=domain
Which works and mounts the drive properly. I can access all contents of dir2 via
Now I use used umount /mnt/backups, and try to access a directory deeper...
mount -t cifs //ip/dir1/dir2/dir3 /mnt/backups -o username=user,password=pwd,domain=domain
The command does not return any errors, but when I type ls /mnt/backups, I get
/bin/ls: /mnt/backups: No such file or directory
The permissions on all folders in the directory are fine. When I am able to mount dir2, I can navigate to the dir3 using ls. However, I cannot mount dir3. Is there a restriction on how deep you can go (as far as directories)?
