I have read several Reddit and forum posts about difficulty getting Remote SMB Shares to mount, but none of the solutions I've found have worked. 😞

 

I have shares from a Windows Server 2016 machine. I can set up the SMB with username, password, domain, etc. It shows on the MAIN tab, but when I click MOUNT, it tries and then just goes back to saying MOUNT again.

 

I've tried connecting to different shares, with several username/password sets, by hostname and IP. Nothing works.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Post your diagnostics zip file.

Okay. See attached. Thanks!
Quickly looking at the system log, when it tries to mount the share, it says SMB must be enabled to mount a share. SMB IS enabled in the settings. See image.

Ok, I see the problem.  It's from a recent change I made.  I'll release a fix today.

Had my server freeze last night due to an OOM problem. Had to hard reset. After rebooting UD no longer shows my unassigned drives. If I uninstall the plugin I see the drives on the main tab but with the plugin installed that section is blank. I've tried deleting the plugin and it's config and doing a clean install but no luck. Not sure what to try next.

Uninstall the UD plugin and give me a screen shot of the array disks and UD disks.

I found this in the previous logs (log server)-

/sbin/mount -t xfs -o rw,noatime,nodiratime '/dev/sdf1' '/mnt/disks/deluge'

I tried using it after adjusting to the current designation (/dev/sda1) but get an error that mount point deluge does not exist. Maybe I need to create a share "deluge" in the UI first?

No, UD are not part of user shares.

 

If you look at that log there is probably a mkdir before that mount command.

Actually, it worked. I created a share "deluge" in the UI and then used a modified command-

/sbin/mount -t xfs -o rw,noatime,nodiratime '/dev/sda1' '/mnt/user/deluge'

This added all the data on the drive to the share deluge. I've edited the docker to add the new path and it's working for now.

Looking at the disk log I don't see anything to indicate that the plugin ever tried to mount it. It shows where I mounted it via terminal but not much before that.

If you look at that log there is probably a mkdir before that mount command.

In fact, if you look at any of your disks mounting in syslog you will see a mkdir which creates the mount point for the mount command to use.

So when you install UD the two unassigned disks don't show up?

I have an idea of what's going on, but I need to confirm it.

 

I recently made a change so duplicate disks don't show up in UD.  It creates a lot of problems when UD tries to work with duplicate disks.

 

I'm doing some testing and may ask you to install a replacement module for testing.

I'm having a new issue that's cropped up since I tried to get a 10Gbps NIC working in my backup unRAID server two days ago. A 1TB SSD that's mounted using UD is set to auto-mount and share for its settings. It mounts locally with no issues. Since playing around with the NIC and eventually pulling it and falling back to the onboard 1Gbe NIC, that drive is no longer mountable via SMB or NFS. I get this message:

 

Dec 1 15:54:51 MYNAS kernel: CIFS: VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13

 

I see in syslog the mount command appears to be looking for a credentials file that doesn't exist. Funny thing is I also mount my main unRAID share and it works, but there's no credential file found at /tmp/unassigned.devices for it either.  The mount command looks like this:

 

/sbin/mount -t 'cifs' -o rw,noserverino,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=99,gid=100,credentials='/tmp/unassigned.devices/credentials_MYSSD' ‘//MYSERVER/MYSSD' '/mnt/remotes/MYSERVER_MYSSD'

 

How is UD mounting my unRAID share when there's no credentials file for it? At least it works, but no luck tracking down the credentials issue for the 1TB SSD. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Because of security, the credentials file is shredded as soon as it is no longer needed.  It contains unencrypted credentials.  Credentials are stored encrypted and then unencrypted for a mount.

What exactly is the issue?  Credentials aren't used for a disk unless it is encrypted.

I'm not using encrypted disks but everything I've read so far on 'return code = -13' indicates it's a credentials problem and that's why the disk won't mount via SMB or NFS.
