mount error(5): Input/output error Refer to the mount.cifs

Fri Jun 23, 2017 1:35 am

Hi there,

I have tvheadend installed on my raspberry pi 3 (using latest version of raspbian) to use as the back end server for recording TV shows. I want to record to a usb drive on my network that is attached to my mac mini.

The USB drive connected to my Macmini is formatted to HFS+ non-journaled and has it's own power supply. I have created the SMB share on the mac so it's available to be seen on my network.

I've installed hfsplus hfsprogs hfsutils on the pi3.

This is what i've tried to use to mount the drive:

sudo mount -t cifs -o user={USER},password={PASS},rw //{IP}/{SHARE} /home/pi/recordings

sudo mount -t cifs -o user={USER},password={PASS},nounix,sec=ntlmssp,noperm,rw //{IP}/{SHARE} /home/pi/recordings

Both return the following error:

mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

A quick google suggests "sec=ntlm" in the mount options might help
Attempts to contact me outside of these forums will be ignored unless signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public enquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters
