Windows 10: Network sharing question

    Network sharing question

    Hi there

    Any idea how I do this in windows

    I have two machines currently NAS Linux servers : Brownbear and Gudmundur

    In Gudmundur I have a share HDD0 available as a SAMBA share.

    on Brownbear I want to access this HDD. There's nothing (and no need to) in the SAMBA.Config to pre-allocate this HDD -- I only need to access it "ad hoc".

    So Easy linux command

    jim@brownbear ~]$ su
    [root@brownbear jim]# mount -t cifs -o jim //gudmundur/HDD0 /mnt/DV4
    mount error: could not resolve address for gudmundur: Unknown error
    [root@brownbear jim]# mount -t cifs -o username=jim // /mnt/DV4
    Password for jim@// *********
    [root@brownbear jim]#

    now I can see all the files on that drive etc.

    How do I do this in Windows --should be simple but I can't seem to make this work. I.e I have a Windows share say DRIVE Z - but it's a REMOTELY attached drive (i.e not a drive directly / USB or whatever --it's connected via something like //serveraddr/name(Z). I can't connect this with the cifs mount command but there must be away of doing it ??

    Any network gurus - or am I barking up the wrong tree.

    Have you tried using Winscp for browsing the shares on the Linux Machines? I know that with disabling SMB1 in Windows has broken the network, turning it back on fixes it.

    The one way that I ever got shares working was by going in with Webmin and doing the convert Linux user to Samba user, etc.. Samba on Linux has always given me headaches, with the exception of my Synology NAS, which actually works well out of the box.

    Jimbo see this link. Just remember to make sure that Computer Browser service is automatic in Services on the Windows Machines.

    To disable SMBv1 on the SMB client, run the following commands:
    sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb20/nsi
    sc.exe config mrxsmb10 start= disabled

    Scottie's Tech Lan Scanner will show in Windows the machines on the SMB Workgroup and the Master Browser. Downloads | Scotties Tech.Info I hope that my headache goes away now. I have been beating my head over the desk in searching everything I could. Of course the technet info does not state the obvious of "Do not touch the huge red button in Windows Features labeled SMB1, because we tied the Computer Browser Service into that).
