I want to keep containers volumes on a SMB share, so in order to achieve that, I’ve put the following in my config:
#cloud-config mounts: - - "//my_nas_dns_address/share_name" - "/mnt/mountpoint" - "cifs" - "credentials=/root/.cifs,iocharset=utf8,_netdev"
Unfortunately, this doesn’t work. The
[ 15.422067] Unable to determine destination address.
I changed the mount to use an IP address instead of domain, this solved the issue above, but produced another one:
[ 62.978180] CIFS VFS: No username specified
After changing the
username=XXX,password=YYY it stared to work. But I don’t like that workaround.
To solve first issue (
Unable to determine destination address ) I switched to
ubuntu console and installed the
cifs-utils package. Then I tried adding
name resolve order = host lmhosts wins bcast to
/etc/samba/smb.conf, as mentioned here, but it sill didn’t accept the host DNS name.
I can live with hardcoded IP address, but I cannot stand the secrets being hardcoded in the config file.
Anyone got an idea on how to make this work with credfile and DNS name?
sudo mount -t cifs "//my_nas_address/share_name" "/mnt/mountpoint" -o credentials=/root/.cifs,iocharset=utf8,_netdev works (but again - only after I switched to ubuntu console and I installed
In topics unrelated to RancherOS, according to the internet, those issues should be solved by installing
cifs-utils . So my guess is that the
udev container of RancherOS does not have it, so it’s impossible to do? Can someone confirm?
