I'm trying to mount a samba share on CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian and I'm getting the error "CIFS VFS: No username specified" although everything seems fine.
Here's my /etc/fstab :
//126.96.36.199/share /mnt/share cifs rw,iocharset=utf8,uid=root,gid=root,credentials=/root/smbcredentials 0 0
and my output:
# mount /mnt/backups mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //10.13.37.5/backups, missing codepage or helper program, or other error (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program) In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so. # dmesg | tail [ 1308.670814] CIFS VFS: No username specified
