    Question Automount Samba Folders

    How can I automount samba folders shared in my home network at boot? I am assuming it's just a matter of syntax.

    What I have tried so far (but without success) are (in /etc/fstab):
    Code:
    //multimedia/raid1 /media/raid smbfs username=foobar,passsword=foobar,defaults 0 0
    
    //multimedia/media/raid1 /media/raid smbfs username=foobar,passsword=foobar,defaults 0 0
    
    //192.168.1.102/raid1 /media/raid smbfs username=foobar,passsword=foobar,defaults 0 0
    
    //192.168.1.102/media/raid1 /media/raid smbfs username=foobar,passsword=foobar,defaults 0 0
    Notes:
    -"multimedia" is the NetBIOS name of the samba server machine.
    -"192.168.1.102" is the IP address of the samba server machine.
    -"/media/raid1" is the exact directory on the samba server machine.
    -"raid1" is the samba share name of the shared folder.

    smbfs is deprecated. Use cifs instead. See: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently
