I'm trying to connect a client running Ubuntu 13.04 to a network share hosted by a file server which has recently been upgraded from Windows Server 2003 to 2012.
Currently I am able to mount the remote share while connected to the LAN using:
sudo mount -t cifs //myserver.mydomain.co.uk/myshare /media/myshare/ -o user=myself,domain=myworkgroup,pass=**********
However, I'm having trouble mounting the share via a Cisco (IPsec/Xauth) VPN. Prior to the server upgrade I had no problem with this, but now I get the following message:
mount error(112): Host is down Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
dmesg | tail gives me
[ 1975.651346] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -112
The host is most definitely not down - I am still able to connect to the same share over the VPN using
smbclient //myserver.mydomain.co.uk/myshare -U myself -W myworkgroup Enter myself's password: session request to MYSERVER.MYDOMAIN failed (Called name not present) Domain=[MYWORKGROUP] OS=[Windows Server 2012 Standard 9200] Server=[Windows Server 2012 Standard 6.2] smb: \>
I'm not sure of the significance of the "
session request to MYSERVER.MYDOMAIN failed (Called name not present)" error, since I'm still able to browse the directory structure.
Any suggestions for what to try next?
