IN THIS ARTICLE:
- Outlines the process of mounting SMB shares via command line for
- Qumulo-local user not bound to AD
- Members of AD domain
Linux SMB 2.1 Compatibility Requirements:
Linux Kernel 3.7 or higher
NOTE: Check your Linux kernel version using the command below. If you are not running Linux kernel 3.7 and above then your system is not compatible with SMB 2.1.
- First you'll need to create a mount point.
sudo mkdir /mnt/qumulo
Mount share as a Qumulo-local user NOT bound to AD.
- Qumulo user ‘admin’ used in this example. You’ll be prompted for the password for user ‘admin’
sudo mount -t cifs -o vers=2.1,user=admin,dom=qumulo //your.qumulo.ip/ShareName /mnt/qumulo
Mount share as a member of Active Directory Domain: Linux client NOT bound to AD, Qumulo bound to AD
- You’ll be prompted for the password for user ‘yourADuser’
sudo mount -t cifs -o vers=2.1,user=yourADuser,dom=AD.YOURDOMAIN.COM //your.qumulo.ip/ShareName/mnt/qumulo
Mount share as a member of Active Directory Domain: Linux client and Qumulo BOTH bound to AD and a valid AD user currently logged into Linux client.
- Depending on your Linux client’s Kerberos configuration, a password for the current logged in user might not be required.
sudo mount -t cifs -o vers=2.1 //your.qumulo.ip/ShareName /mnt/qumulo
You should now be able to successfully mount Qumulo SMB shares via command line on Linux using the commands featured in this article.
