Drobo

How to mount DroboShare (Debian)?

I have Debian 5 with samba installed, I can connect to and browse through my Drobo via:

smbclient \\DroboShare\Drobo -U

How do I mount the Drobo?

I’ve tried

sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=,password= //DroboShare[/code]/Drobo /mnt/Drobo

and get

mount error: could not find target server. TCP name DroboShare/Drobo not found
No ip address specified and hostname not found[hr]
Ok im a lazy moron

sudo mount -t smbfs -o username= , password= //192.168.1.149/Drobo /mnt/Drobo

works.

But how could I map with the share name?

You could add the IP Address and hostname to your /etc/hosts file
