Hi all,

A while ago I posted about needing to access samba shares on the same machine
that the samba server was running on.

Someone posted a script to mount the shares and all was well till I upgraded
my PC hadware and had a small accident

I have tried modifing /etc/init.d/samba adding ...

mount -t smbfs //127.0.0.1/common /mnt/samba/common -o
credentials=/home/dave/.smbpw,uid=dave,gid=dave,fmask=660,dmask=770
> /dev/null

mount -t smbfs //127.0.0.1/windows /mnt/samba/windows -o
credentials=/home/dave/.smbpw,uid=dave,gid=dave,fmask=660,dmask=770
> /dev/null

mount -t smbfs //127.0.0.1/archive /mnt/samba/archive -o
credentials=/home/dave/.smbpw,uid=dave,gid=dave,fmask=660,dmask=770
> /dev/null


and

umount //127.0.0.1/common
umount //127.0.0.1/windows
umount //127.0.0.1/archive

To the appropriate bits, this works most of the time but fails to mount 1 or
more shares randomly. Thinking this was because the samba demons had not had
time to startup properly I added a 10s delay, still random fail to mounts.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Oh yes, if I open an xterm and '/etc/init.d/samba restart' it always mounts
the shares AOK
