Failed to mount Windows share: Permission denied
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2013
I basically did what is described in the guide at http://www.howtogeek.com/116309/
No problem to share folders in my home directory:
I just rightclick on folder, sharing options, share this folder and
I can find immediately the shared folder in Network/Browse network and access the files in it.
When i try to do the same with a folder located on another partition i had named DATA,
i can actually share the folder, and it also appears when i browse the network,
but when i try to access the folder i get the message:
Failed to mount Windows share: Permission denied
I get this message as well on a windows machine as well as an ubuntu 12.04 machine.
The permissions shown in the properties window are:
for owner, group and others: create and delete files
Deluged can't save to windows share. Permission denied. help

I created an Ubuntu Server, LAMP setup using 12.04 with VMWare 10 on Windows 8.1
Installed Deluged, Deluge-web, sabnzbd+ and CouchPotato.
This is my second go at this and first time around I was able to connect couchpotato to Deluge.
Not anymore with this setup.
Also I've setup deluged to save to this windows share I created with these permissions. That was after doing the default setup following the guide.
//servername/sharename /media/windowsshare cifs credentials=/home/ubuntuusername/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
The correct windows username/password is stored in the credentials file.
The Windows user has full control set under permissions on Windows.
Tested and able to save to the shared folder using WinSCP via SFTP and also from the terminal.
The Deluged setup was done using a new user and I believe is restricted to the one folder.
I wanted to know how to go about changing these se

Have a Ubuntu Server 12.04 serving a mix of Windows boxes, the Samba shares utilising the 'Guest' account, share access wthout problem.
Some of the shares are USB drives attached to the server, and these USB shares are not accessible to another development Ubuntu Server 12.04 now added to the network.
Messagebox title is 'Unable to mount location', error message text is 'Failed to mount Windows share'.
Any ideas on a workaround, please?

Unable to mount Windows share in Ubuntu

I have a Windows server 2012 Domain Controller + dhcp + dns fully working (home.ad).
I have the latest version of stable Ubuntu server on another machine.
Ubuntu is not part of the domain.
I have shared one folder from the server 2012 with Everyone/Everyone so it should be visible.
The network share is:
On the Ubuntu machine I have installed smbfs and tried mounting it with no success.
There seems to be multiple ways to do this, but none seems to work.
I need to map that drive permanently so that I can always access it so I added the entry to my /etc/fstab
//SERVER/TimeCapsule /mnt/ntserver cifs uid=1000 user=HOME\Administrator password=gra$$ 0 0
but I just get Line 13 is bad. Big help.
Can anyone give us a hand?
Failed to mount Windows share problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2010
I have been searching, re-installing and swearing for weeks. I CAN't access Windows shared on the domain network. This is NOT limited to the domain either as regular Windows shares give me exactly the same message 'Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows Share.' I can see every single shared folder but I can't for the life of me open it. I have tried Ubuntu 10.10; 10.04 and 9.04 to no avail. I also tried Linux mint 9 with the exact same problem SuSE on the other had accesses every folder out the box but the entire system is dog slow and I can't get the proprietary nvidia drivers to work. I can create shares that are accessible from a Windows computer on the linux machine but not other way round. I have tried scripts, praying, denying sex, kicking the computer and a host of other things but still can't get this bleeding message to go away and the folder shares to open. Can somebody PLEASE hold my dreary stupid wrinkled little hand and walk me through this before
Error: Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share

I am trying to wirelessly view the shared folders on my Windows 7 PC via the home network, on my laptop running Ubuntu 10:04. In Nautilus I can see all the shared folders on the Windows PC by clicking into Network, the Windows Network, then the name of the workgroup, then the name of the PC in Windows shares on workgroup. But when I try to see the contents of any of the shared folders, I get this error message:

I am trying to write my thesis and all my resources are on my PC, while I write in my study. But I need access to my extensive PDF library while I work. I keep having to get up and email things to myself! It's really a pain in the ***.
I am pretty new to Ubuntu, and as much as I love it, I don't really know what I'm doing.
[SOLVED] mount error 13 = Permission denied, when trying to access an smb share
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 4, 2009
I'm trying to setup a samba share on an "old" computer running Xubuntu 8.04LTS. I've configured the smb.conf in several ways, and by using a command found in a different forum I've discovered that the share is there, but when I try to mount it I get:
mount error 13 = Permission denied
I try to connect using a username that's setup on the server (right now I'm actually trying from the server), and the password that works on that computer, so what am I doing wrong?
I've been fiddling with PAM at work a little bit, is that something I need to setup to get it to work, or what is wrong?
Help with mounting samba share: smbmount or mount.cifs error: permission denied
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2009
I set up a simple samba share on a Ubuntu 8.04 server. My client is Ubuntu 9.04. I thought I could mount the samba share from the server to the client. So I tried something on the client like:
sudo smbmount //server/share /client/mountpoint
After giving my passwd, I got:
mount error(13): Permission denied
I am not sure where this problem came from. Is it because the user/group are not correct? Where do I start to look?
Unable to mount location failed to mount Windows share

I am having problems sharing my external hard drive.
It is plugged into my Ubuntu LTS media centre computer and is just a standard USB Seagate HDD. It works fine when I access it from the same computer it is plugged into, both in Ubuntu and Windows machines.
I have set it up as a shared resource using the shares-admin app and at the same time, shared the home folder of that machine. I can access the home folder fine from my laptop over the network but when I try to access the external HDD, I get the following error msg: 'Unable to mount location - failed to mount Windows share'.
My laptop has the same OS as the media centre - Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Lucid. I am trying to access the share via Places > Network. I'm not sure why it comes under Windows shares because neither machine has Windows on. The network is a Wi-fi home network.
Please let me know if you need any further information. Hopefully, there is a simple solution to this.
