View Full Version : fstab SMB share not mounting with read write access to Windows 8 machine

January 10th, 2013, 08:05 PM
I am using windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10 and the windows 8 machine is setup as a SMB share. I have read through the man page for cifs-mount, but now matter what I try, I cannot get the share to give me read and write access to the server. Ubuntu will not let me install smbfs as it is obsoleted, so I am unsure where to go from here. The command I am using is

//theip/Users /media/folder cifs domain=domain,username=user,password=secret,uid=me ,rw

Thank you!

I must've been very tired when I was dealing with this. I just checked again and the command seemed to work fine when I changed it to

//theip/Users /media/folder cifs domain=domain,username=me,password=mypass,uid=1000 ,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode 0 0

I found this on this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently
