[Solved] Unable to mount Apple Time Capsule

Postby fred44nl » 2020-04-26 15:11

when I was running Debian 9 Stretch, I could mount my Apple Time Capsule, be uncommenting the appropriate line in /etc/fstab, which looks like this:
Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=c13aae11-e70b-4c32-95d4-887063631a09 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /boot/efi was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=BC43-EC19  /boot/efi       vfat    umask=0077      0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=2afc519b-3d72-482c-8b5a-343c09ff428d none            swap    sw              0       0
#

#
## /dev/disk/by-uuid/cdd8bbd9-285b-45e8-ad06-ab29e7997e0b /mnt/usbhdd         ext4   defaults    0      1

## //192.168.1.2/Backup_TC /media/BackupTC cifs user=fred44nl,pass=xxxxx,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
#


when I try to mount the Time Capsule now, I get a message suggesting that the host is down.
if I try to mount the TC with the following command
Code: Select all
sudo mount //192.168.1.2/TimeCapsule /media/TimeCapsule afp user=fred44nl,pass=xxxxx,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
I get an error about bad usage of mount.

what has changed when I upgraded to Buster ??
and how can I solve this problem ??

The ip is no longer the same, perhaps?

do you mean with that sentence that you verified that the ip in your mount line in fstab is still correct?

did you check the firewall is allowing it?

yes, the ip is correct, as I can ping it.

my firewall is in my router, so my Debian machine has none.

after another extensive search on internet, I found that an Apple Time Capsule can only be mounted with Samba version 1.
obviously Debian 10 Buster uses version 2 or 3.
so, I have changed the line in /etc/fstab and added "ver=1.0", after which the TC can be mounted again.
