problem when mounting Windows drive in AIX

Hi,

I have a problem when I was trying to mount windows XP shared folder in AIX v5.3

I used command
Quote:
mount -v cifs -n windowsip/user/pass /sharedfolder /mountpoint
and I got this:
Quote:
/sbin/helpers/mount_cifs: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
what does it mean?
Is there any solution without install cifs?

Thanks

Does /mountpoint exist on the AIX system?

Yes, The mount point is exist, the sharedfolder too

Code:
mount -v cifs -n windowsip/user/pass /sharedfolder /mountpoint

This command does not look correct. Following the -n should be the node name of the remote system. Is the remote filesystem windowsip/user/pass/sharedfolder?

I still question whether /mountpoint exists.

1. Create the mount point directory.
2. If the windows machine is in Active Directory Domain, you need to issue this command:

Code:
#mount -v cifs -n serverip/username/password -o wrkgrp=domain,fmode=755
/sharename /localmountpoint

If you have the smbclient installed (part of samba.base), you can try to connect to the Windows share and at least verify that you are authenticating correctly.
Code:
hostname:/> smbclient //windowsip/sharename -U domain/user
Enter domain/user's password:
Domain=[domain] OS=[Windows Server 2003 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 5.2]
smb: \>
