Running CURRENT and trying to mount a "share" provided by a M$ Windows 2012R2 server via autofs fails with an authetication error.
I tested successfully to mount the share via mount_smbfs manually, but whenever I provide the option "-N" I receive this sticky authentication error. The manpage for mount_smbfs refers to /etc/nsmb.conf and therein the password should be provided in cleartext or simple encrypted. Further, the FreeBSD onboard tool "smbutil crypt SOMEPASSWORD" is suggested, creating a weak obscured password hash for exactly the purpose I described above. Mounting the share via mount_smbfs -I XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX //user@NetBIOSName/ShareName /mount/point results in being asjed for the password interactively and after providing the correct password by typing into the console, the share is mounted successfully. Now, with only the option "-N" added: mount_smbfs -N -I XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX //user@NetBIOSName/ShareName /mount/point which is supposed to fetch the password from /etc/nsmb.conf or ~/nsmb.conf or ~/.nsmbrc (I created successively all of them) via the "password=$$1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" tag, fails. The file looks like [...] [default] [ShareName] password=$$1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX [...] I tried to encapsulate the password with single- or doublequotes, but nothing worked so far. I suspect that the documentation is in a bad shape hiding the fact that mount_smbfs is providing via interactive mode the right hash, but neither cleartext nor the manpgae-suggested solution within nsmb.conf provides the correct hashed/non-hashed password. The aim is to provide on an embedded system (NanoBSD) a share, mounted on demand via AUTOFS. This fails so far for the automatic password provision. Interactive provided password works like a charme. Can someone shed some light on this problem? How can I create a proper hash for the password (FreeBSD onboard tools?) and how to provide AUTOFS or mount_smbfs with option -N with this password?
