Re: smbmount

thanx for the replies, it is all working now...

it is weird how a redhat Samba rpm package would have smbmount/smbclient
included whereas a Debian Samba package doesn't.

BTW, what is more reliable as a means for copying great quantities of files

1)   smbmount from an AIX samba shared directory


2)   nfs mount from an AIX NFS shared directory with no_root_squash?

smbfs is actually a package - apt-get install smbfs
You also need SMB support compiled into the kernel for those commands to
work. (I dont know if you can do it as a module, havent tried).
