I have copy/pasted an entry in /etc/fstab from one server to another.
It was mounting a CIFS/Samba share.
When I tried to mount it, I got the following error message:
(Adding "-v" didn't show any additional information )mount: failed to parse mount options
I had the options for UserID and GroupID set in my fstab entry:
But the user and group "xxx" didn't exist on my new server.
Code: Select all
//whatever.windows.thing /mnt/windows cifs user,uid=xxx,gid=xxx, ...
Therefore, mount failed to parse the mount options
