problems with mounting a windows 7 shared folder in linux

Posted 14 June 2012 - 12:34 PM

Ok here is the situation, i have a mixed network(windows xp, windows 7, some linux machine (centOS)), the linux machine works as a server, and i want the server to have access to the shared folders of the other machines connected in the local network.
i have no problem mounting shares from windows xp, i have problems with the windows 7 shares.

#some othe shares
cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe \srvsvc to machine MACHINENAME.  Error was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

tried with
smbtree -U username

same result.
Then i tried


where can come from?
the i tried to mount directly with the IP
 mount -t cifs // /mnt/aa/ -o user=username

the result
mount error 5 = Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

the windows 7 user has only username, with no password. any idea where the problem may come from?

Access denied. The folder is not shared - or is not shared TO YOU.

There were a LOT of changes in sharing and security between XP and Win7.

Being a Linux guy, are you familiar proficient with Win7 sharing?
If you had to share a folder between two Win7 machines would you be able to? I'm not trying to be mean. I'm just saying if you can't share on the same OS then there is probably going to be even more difficulty with sharing across multiple OSes.

Personally, I'd start by making the folder visible to Everyone.
Then see if I can see it from another Win7 machine and take it from there.

After that, there are ton of detailed instruction pages on the web that come up if you Google "Share Windows7 to Linux"
