SMB/CIFS server: Windows Server 2003 3790 Service Pack 2
I've encountered the situation when
mount.cifs behaves differently from
The following command works fine. I can log in the server and navigate through the share's contents.
smbclient -U domainname/username //server.name/sharename
And if I try to mount this very share folder with the following command,
mount -t cifs //server.name/sharename /mount/point -o user=domainname/username
then the command itself works fine (return code is 0, no error message). But
/mount/point looks empty.
What's the problem? Why
smbclient behave differently? Maybe
smbclient uses some hidden settings?
BTW, I don't know whether it is relevant to the problem but anyway. If I run
mount.cifs command several times, I don't get any
folder already mounted kind of message. Though afterwards I can run
umount the same number of times until I get error
umount: /mount/point/: not mounted
