[SOLVED] "mount -t cifs" isn't working


I know there is mount.cifs for direct mounting cifs, but maybe not everybody knows it and also I would like to use the default well known mount -t command for that, so here is the quite simple how to for that.

mount the cifs (samba share) isn’t working

root@turris:~# mount -t cifs //raspi/storage/ /mnt/raspi/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //raspi/storage/,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount. helper program)

   In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
   dmesg | tail or so.

according to error, the /sbin/mount.cifs is missing

create the symlink for mount.cifs binary from /usr/sbin into /sbin

root@turris:~# ln -s /usr/sbin/mount.cifs /sbin
root@turris:~# ll /sbin/mount.cifs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 #root root 20 Dec 31 17:49 /sbin/mount.cifs -> /usr/sbin/mount.cifs

root@turris:~# mount -t cifs //raspi/storage/ /mnt/raspi/
Password for root@//raspi/storage/:
root@turris:~# mount |grep raspi
// on /mnt/raspi type cifs (rw,relatime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=root,domain=RASPBERRYPI,uid=0,noforceuid,gid=0,noforcegid,addr=,unix,posixpaths,serverino,mapposix,acl,rsize=1048576,wsize=65536,actimeo=1)


Having Difficulty with CIFS can anyone help?

I am running the following

root@turris:~# mount -t cifs // /mnt/LXC -a -o us

This is the dump from running mount on my NAS box

rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on /old type cramfs (ro,relatime)
proc on /old/proc type proc (rw,relatime)
none on /old/sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)

nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw,relatime)
/dev/md4 on /shares/LXC type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,barrier=0,data=ordered, usrquota,grpquota)

it should read
