Comments fail

Posted by grigsby on August 28, 2008

Well, I’m an idiot. The last time I updated the wordpress theme, it looks like I didn’t check that the comments worked. Well, it turns out that the theme I’m using didn’t have the line that displayed the reCAPTCHA form. Soooo, any comments people have been trying to leave have been lost to the ether. I am officially and idiot. Sorry folks.

smbount 2GB limit and cifs “mount error 13”

Posted by grigsby on August 8, 2008

So I needed to copy several GBs of data between a linux compute machine and a windows box. It’s enough data that I don’t want to copy to a file server and then back to the workstation. The linux system is not running Samba, FTP is out, and SCP is slower than molasses in January. First thought share a drive on the WinXP box and mount it on the server.


[root@biglinuxbox data]# mount -t smbfs -o username=user //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt
[root@biglinuxbox data]# cp /local/data/big_data_file.tgz /tmpmnt
[root@biglinuxbox data]#

Cool! Wait. That was awfully fast… Oh. The file on the client side is exactly 2GB. Damn. Quick google and… yup. smbfs has a 2GB limit. Damn.


[root@biglinuxbox ~]# mount -t cifs -o username=my_username //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt
Password:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# mount -t cifs -o username=domain/my_username //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt
Password:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# mount -t cifs -o username=domainmy_username //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt
Password:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# man mount.cifs
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# mount -t cifs -o user=domain/my_username //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt

Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

Okay. Getting mad. After spending a few minutes in the man pages, I find that you can also specify the domain on the options line. Even though the man page says that domain/username should work, it’s not.


[root@biglinuxbox ~]# mount -t cifs -o user=my_username,domain=plm //win_workstation/share /tmpmnt
Password:
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# rm damon.tgz
rm: remove regular file `damon.tgz'? y
[root@biglinuxbox ~]# cp /local/data/big_data_file.tgz /tmpmnt

Sigh.
