Mount CIFS Share on Vera Edge?

No, this doesn’t work. Been trying to get this working for [tt]DataYours[/tt] see http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,25800.msg216212.html#msg216212.

Seems that CIFS install needs to be built specially for MiOS / UI7 / Edge.

I ran into this when I was on a Vera 2. The existing CIFS packages for Vera 3 (UI5+) wouldn’t work on my Vera 2, even though I was also on UI5.

CIFS installed without a hitch on my vera3. I JUST hooked my edge and finished transferring everything from my vera3 to my edge, now I’m going to try these steps on my edge

stay tuned!

rats.

this is a MAJOR problem for me as I bought the edge so that I could hook my 3 to the wi-fi in my condo and not have to pay for dedicated cable there.

–sigh.

has anyone reached out to their support team to see what the timeline is for this ?

Try use --force-depends when installing the packages and then reboot. I have mounted my NAS on VeraEdge.

This sounds really promising, but adding that to the install lines still didn’t work for me, giving error “Unknown package ‘cifsmount’”.

Could you possibly post a full script - I’ve rather lost track of all the different flavours of suggestions to get this right - but delighted that at least someone has done!

My test was not very systematic when trying to get cifs pkg installed. Before I got it to work, I even removed some of the packages and reinstalled them. But here are the rough steps that I think should work:

opkg update
opkg install --force-depends kmod-nls-utf8 kmod-nls-base kmod-crypto-hmac kmod-crypto-md5 kmod-crypto-misc kmod-fs-cifs

You will probably get some dependency errors. Just run the install cmd repeatedly and it will tell you that the packages are installed. Especially run opkg install -force-depends kmod-fs-cifs to make sure that the cifs package is installed.

Finally, restart VeraEdge.

I think I also had other kmod-crypto-* packages installed, but they probably either won’t matter or will be automatically added by the install command above due to dependencies.

The reason I used --force-depends is that I saw people in the OpenWRT community having similar problem recently. Looks like a package signature miss match between OpenWRT build. Some suggestions were to rebuild the kernel yourself and include the kmod-fs-* options. However, we can’t do that for Vera. That’s why I thought of force installation.

P.S.

  1. Using “cifsmount” as the package name won’t work. It shoukd be kmod-fs-cifs
  2. My VeraEdge is upgraded to v1.7.961

OK, well, I guess this bit is good news:

# opkg install --force-depends kmod-nls-utf8 kmod-nls-base kmod-crypto-hmac kmod-crypto-md5 kmod-crypto-misc kmod-fs-cifs
Package kmod-nls-utf8 (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.
Package kmod-nls-base (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.
Package kmod-crypto-hmac (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.
Package kmod-crypto-md5 (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.
Package kmod-crypto-misc (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.
Package kmod-fs-cifs (3.10.34-1) installed in root is up to date.

However, this is not:

# mount -t cifs -o user=XXX,pass=YYY,nounix,noserverino //172.16.42.100/DATAMINE /dataMine
mount: mounting //172.16.42.100/DATAMINE on /dataMine failed: Invalid argument

Do I have the mount syntax wrong, now? It worked before.

[quote=“akbooer, post:10, topic:185496”]# mount -t cifs -o user=XXX,pass=YYY,nounix,noserverino //172.16.42.100/DATAMINE /dataMine
mount: mounting //172.16.42.100/DATAMINE on /dataMine failed: Invalid argument[/quote]

Did you reboot the device? I will check on my device again tonight.

Yes, I did, and have done just now. Still the same. :frowning:

Try removing some arguments. noservino is the first thing I’d eliminate and if that didn’t work, nounix until I found the argument that it doesn’t like.

Also, the /dataMine mount point does exist, right.

akbooer, mine command was:

 mount -t cifs //{ip}/{sharePath} -o user={user},password={password}

I did not try nounix, noserverino. But looks like your problem is that the option should be “password” not “pass”

Actually, “pass” has always worked, but changing to “password” still doesn’t help. Nor does removing nounix and noservino. Everything I try gives me:

mount: mounting //172.16.42.100/DATAMINE on /dataMine failed: Invalid argument

[ul][li]The mount point /dataMine is there (incidentally, in your example you don’t have one??)[/li]
[li]the remote server is there (and mounted on three other Veras under UI5)[/li]
[li]all the packages are apparently installed and up to date[/li][/ul]

…completely stumped. ???

Actually, I do have the mount point, /dataYours. Just didn’t paste the command correctly.
Yeah, this is puzzling. I will check packages I have installed and report back.

Hi akbooer,

Using the instructions I got it working on VeraEdge. Do you have the password in quotes? I found is you have special characters it won’t take it

Cheers Rene.

Good for you! For me: no quotes, but only alphabetic characters.

Hi Akbooer,

I actually just took your startup LUA to mount the cifs. Changed all instances of pass to password and works like a charm on Edge with UI7 and Lite with UI5.

Cheers Rene

And I just unmounted and then mounted the NAS again:

mount -t cifs -o user=user,pass=pass //{myip}/DataYours /dataYours/

My password also contains only alphabets and numbers. Maybe just remove, reinstall the packages and reboot Vera?

Hey Renebor, which LUA? Could you paste the link? Thanks.

That would be this code, then http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,25134.msg184164.html#msg184164

…that’s the second piece of my code which works for others, but not for me on UI7 :-[
