mounting cifs from WIN2012

WIN2012 is not really supported….. These were the words of IBM engineer working on my PMR which I opened to find out how to mount WIN2012 shares (cifs)….. Well we can mount cifs from the previous releases of WINDOWS OS but not 2012 one. Next, he emailed me a link to Microsoft document explaining how to disable SMB signing – the reason for the failure. I was advised to follow the WIN2003 procedure with still applies to WIN2012.

You can have a look at the document following this link – “Overview of Server Message Block signing

To mount CIFS share in AIX:

# mount -v cifs -n lawisnqw1/lawsona/law1199 \
                 -o wrkgrp=wmd-edu,fmode=755 /tjtest /tjtest

aka

# mount -v cifs -n WINhost/WinUser/WinUserPassword \
                -o wrkgrp=wmd-edu,fmode=755 /ShareName /AIXmountPoint

To mount CIFS in RedHat6:

# mount.cifs //lawisnqw1/tjtest /test \
                -o username=lawsona,password=law1199,domain=wmd-edu

Now, let’s wait for Igor to get a moment of free time to disable SMB singing and check if this will put this request to bed…. 🙂
