ProxMox CIFS Share error “failed: error with cfs lock ‘file-storage_cfg'”

You may have encountered the following error message when trying to mount a CIFS share from the web interface of your Proxmox server. If you run the following command below via SSH, you will get a little more detail.

❯ pvesm add cifs pooter-linux-isos --server 192.168.2.9 --share linux-isos --username proxmox --password
Enter Password: *********
mount error(95): Operation not supported
create storage failed: error with cfs lock 'file-storage_cfg': mount error: Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

The issue is solved by running the command with –smbversion 2.0 or 2.1 or 3.0 as per this forum topic. For my Synology it was –smbversion 2.0 that worked.

I was working on a server and for some reason lighttpd wouldn't start for some odd reason. Running it via Debian/Ubuntu "invoke-rc.d lighttpd start" or "/etc/init.d/lighttpd start" wouldn't reveal an error message or anything in the log.

I hop'd on irc.freenode.net and put some information about my problem in the channel #lighttpd channel.

Corporate critics feel the stinging lash of DMCA misuse

I use to work for an ISP and was head of the Abuse Department. We only really received legitimate DCMA's that were then handled by legal. We didn't really seem to get that many DMCA notices, maybe its because we're a Canadian organization?
Corporate critics feel the stinging lash of DMCA misuse -

Two recent cases show that companies aren't always fans of criticism, and some will file misguided DMCA notices and defamation cases to scrub it from the Internet.
