[QUOTE=j03v]Hi Malcolm,
Wasn’t sure where to post, and If you direct me, would be most obliging.
Had seen a few of your posts addressing (_netdev) issues, somewhat like this one:

On a SUSE Virtual,

Mounting from /etc/fstab using _netdev
// /gcdocs_data_1 cifs credentials=/etc/.smbpasswd,file_mode=0666,dir_mode=0777,_netdev 0 0

Results in: (/var/log/messages)
Oct 18 15:08:51 Suse-virtual-server kernel: [357092.226608] CIFS: Unknown mount option _netdev

The Suse-Virtual-server info: ( Virtual on ESX VMware)
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server ver 11 SP1 64

I understand the purpose of _netdev, and have seen different explanations for probable cause including a possible bug, but would like to request your feedback
as this may be replicated on like Suse virtuals in the future.

Best Regards,
I don’t log into the forums much as I use nntp, so apologize for the delay.

Please post in the SLES Networking forum and will see if it can get sorted :slight_smile:
