Currently I have 3 network drives I mount each time i restart my system. The command I use is:
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.8/ARES /media/Ares -o user=USER,password=*** sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.8/ATHENA /media/Athena -o user=USER,password=*** sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.8/PLUTO /media/Pluto -o user=USER,password=***
I would love to add these puppies over to fstab so I did some googling and came up with this gem: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/configure-a-system-to-automount-a-samba-share-with-etcfstab/ the issue is my system refuses to see smbfs as a valid type, and boot fails. What is the correct way to mount samba shares via fstab as cifs?
I had tried:
//192.168.1.8/PLUTO /media/Pluto cifs username=USER,password=** 0 0
but this also resulted in a failed boot.
I guess i could put them all in a bash script, and run the bash script on system boot....but that seems like a crappy work around
