Nas no longer mounts

Postby xendistar » Tue Sep 25, 2012 5:06 pm

Since I have upgraded to update 5 I have not been able to mount my nas. I have the following line in fstab file

// /media/share smbfs defaults,uid=mit,gid=users 0 0

If I try to manually try and mount it with

$ sudo mount // /media/share

The error message I get is as follows

mount error(16): Device or resource busy
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I have tried un mounting and then retrying to mount it but it still fails.

I have checked the logs files but there is nothing in there (at least that I can see)

I know the nas is working as it is fully accessible from my windows box and I can still ping it from my mint box

Any suggestions??

What happens if you use:

sudo mount -t cifs // /media/share
