Hello I am currently trying to mount a few shares on my Ubuntu Desktop and having a bit of a problem
I have a Ubuntu 12.04 server sitting in the basement that houses all my media, documents etc...
I have a desktop that has Ubuntu 12.04 and I am able to connect to the share manually using the connect to server method. So I was wanting to mount these specific drives so that they would be there even after I reboot the computer.
I did some reading and came up with this method.
I installed samba from the appstore.
I created a few folders in /media called brent,music,movies,www
I opened up /etc/fstab and modified it with adding the following at the bottom
I then created a file in /etc/samba/cred-file and made my credentials.
//192.168.2.105/Movies /media/movies smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/cred-file,uid=brent,gid=users 0 0
//192.168.2.105/Music /media/music smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/cred-file,uid=brent,gid=users 0 0
//192.168.2.105/Brent /media/brent smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/cred-file,uid=brent,gid=users 0 0
//192.168.2.105/WWW /media/www smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/cred-file,uid=brent,gid=users 0 0
saved and did a sudo mount-a from terminal and I get 4 password prompts each time I put in the password a drive will mount.
I am used to putting in a password when ever I do anything sudo related but 4 times for each drive seem something is messed up....
I have tried this on a windows box and mounts fine. so I know its not something wrong with my samba server with permissions. It seems that it is not seeing the cred-file for some reason. Any one have an Idea. Open for Ideas or suggestions..
Thank you in advance,
This has not been resolved. Took the liberty of solving this and creating one in the Network section.
