Raspbmc samba share - host is down

Fri Oct 19, 2012 9:02 pm

Ok, I've got a problem.

I've got 2 raspberry Pi's:
- one running raspbmc with samba shares enabled
- one running raspbian

I want to connect to the 'pi' samba share on the raspbmc pi from the raspbian pi and regardless of what I do, I always get "mount error(112): Host is down", now I can connect to the raspbmc share from a windows pc and I can ping the raspbmc pi from the raspbian pi.

I've tried mounting the pi using the mount command, using various command similar to this:

sudo mount -t cifs -v -o username=pi,password=raspberry //192.168.1.100/pi /home/pi/mount/path

I've also tried modifying /etc/fstab and mounting at boot

All with the same result:

mount error(112): Host is down

When clearly it isn't!

Has anyone got any advice? What am I missing? Can anyone recreate this?

Code: Select all

nmap 192.168.1.100/32
would make it more "clear"

I'm having this very same issue. I can even see the share with smbtree and I can mount it to another Linux box. How did you solve this?

Try adding the vers=X.X cifs option i.e.

Code: Select all

mount -t cifs -o vers=1.0 /my_server/share /some/mount_point
You'll need either 'vers=1.0', 'vers=2.0' or even 'vers=3.0' depending on how your samba server is configured.

Thanks kingosticks. That fixed the problem I was having accessing our Seagate media center. The Raspbian File Manager could get in without any problems but mount wasn't working for me until I added vers=1.0.
