Mounting Linux Share location

Aloha all,

one of these days I’m going to get the handle on Linux....

I’m having a issue, I am busy creating a backup process for a 2 way backup to happen.
Currently a windows machine is backing up a location from a linux server.

Now I want to have the Linux system back it up for a overlay period, so busy creating cronjobs etc etc..
Now issue is when I want to mount the location.
I took the mount command I’m using out of the .sh I created with the logins and cp commands etc, and tested it but still no dice.

What I’m getting is this.

[root@mz-backup root]# /bin/mount -t smbfs -o username=<userName>,password=<Password> //mz-server1/Backup_Windows/backup /mzpine/
Could not resolve mount point /mzpine/
[root@mz-backup root]#

Also tried replacing the servername with its IP same issue.
I can ping the IP from this machine no issues.

Any suggestions / Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
