smbfs: bad mount msg

smbfs: bad mount msg

Post by Mike - EMA » Mon, 14 Jul 2003 08:56:20

VMware: 4.0.0
Host: Win2k
Guest: RH9

At level 3 I issue (one line, no inappropriate spaces):

mount -t smbfs -o user,noauto,dmask=777,fmask=777,
username=xx,password=yy //box/share /mnt/share

I get these messages:

Jul 12 05:56:26 VmLinux kernel: smbfs: Unrecognized mount option noexec
Jul 12 05:56:26 VmLinux rc: Starting smbfsmnt: succeeded

The mount is successful. What is the significance of the first message?

Thanks for your help.

noexec means that files on that device cannot be executable. - It is
probably a default for user mounts. - The version of mount that you are
using does not understand it so it ignores it.
