Unable to mount /backups folder (Cifs)
I'm trying to mount
/backupsfolder using the following syntax:
//<server>/<remote_folder> /backups cifs uid=yellowtent,gid=yellowtent,user=<user>,pass=<pass>,iocharset=utf8 0 0
When I run
sudo mount /backups
mount error(115): Operation now in progress Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Did you experienced problems like this before?
I tried to ping backup path (external) and is reachable.
Thank's a lot!
I don't have much experience with CIFS but looks like there is some issue mounting the share. I found https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/456997/mount-error115-operation-now-in-progress and https://superuser.com/questions/430163/cifs-share-mount-errors . Is there any useful logs on the other side?
@girish I did a google research before and I saw linked document but it seems that is not my situation.
The only difference that I've between a standard installation is that I disabled SSH login with password and also disabled root login.
Which logs should i see?
make sure you can do the mount manually on the command line first, then add it to fstab
The same syntax I used on other Cloudron installations and it worked very fine.
I tried to mount manually but I got a syntax error.
Eg. I used:
mount -t cifs //<server>/<remote_folder> /backups uid=yellowtent,gid=yellowtent,user=<user>,pass=<pass>,iocharset=utf8 0 0
and I got:
mount: bad usage
@p44 could be 2 things.. compare
mountversions, which may have a different syntax.
make sure cifs is available on the new system, for ex if mount.cifs isn't available, it won't recognize the
cifsparameter and error out.
if there are other cifs mounts available (any windows box) try making sure that works to validate cifs at least.
alternative might be smbfs.
Thank's @robi !
I've this situation:
/sbin$ apt-cache policy cifs-utils cifs-utils: Installed: 2:6.8-1ubuntu1.1 Candidate: 2:6.8-1ubuntu1.1 Version table: *** 2:6.8-1ubuntu1.1 500 500 http://it.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 2:6.8-1 500 500 http://it.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 Packages
Also mount.cifs is available.
If there are other cifs mounts available (any windows box) try making sure that works to validate cifs at least.
This step is not totally clear how to perform...
Yes is Hetzner box.
It may just be an issue with Hetzner. As you've seen, recently my backup hetzner storage box somehow unmounted itself during a backup and I needed to restart for it to mount again.
Assume you've tried restarting your server already?
@jdaviescoates Maybe is Hetzner side problem. I had a similar event few weeks ago and I opened a ticket to Cloudron support desk. I restarted server.
Also one week ago and also yesterday I had a similar problem.
For this case "Unable to mount /backups folder (Cifs)" I'm still investigating and I don't think is Hetzner side.
About unmounting problem, I was thinking to move to other storage service. Did you find any workarounds?
where I running this specific Cloudron instance is not Hetzner
Oh, that gave me an idea. Could it be that there is too much latency for the CIFS mount to work? Or maybe there is some configurable latency delay setting for mounting. Usually, CIFS/NFS etc works well only in same data center.

Interesting. Got a reference for this?
I think I purposely chose a different location for my Hetzner Storage Box from my Hetzner VPS just for a bit more redundancy (in case the VPS location get destroyed somehow).
