MOUNT A WINDOWS FILE SYSTEM

April 14, 2010 Leave a comment
#mkdir -p /mnt/win

#mount -t cifs //winserveradd/c$ -o username=mdesouza,password=Starbust /mnt/win
#cd /mnt/win
# ls -l

For the share //windowsserver/sharename to be automatically mounted at every system start (after reboot), insert an option in the file /etc/fstab:
# vi /etc/fstab

Append following line (written in a single line):
//windowserver/share /mnt/win smbfs
auto,gid=users,fmask=0664,dmask=0775,iocharset=iso8859-15, credentials=/etc/sambapasswords 0 0

Next create the password file /etc/sambapasswords
# vi /etc/sambapasswords

Now add following content:
username = mdesouza
password = Starbust

Save and close the file. Make sure only root can access your file:
# chown 0.0 /etc/sambapasswords
# chmod 600 /etc/sambapasswords
