I am running a Ubuntu 12.04 virtual box and trying to mount some Windows shares in fstab.
The shares mount fine, however I only have read permissions. For write permissions I must use sudo. I have tried various settings in fstab, but to no avail. However if I go through GUI, and add a server in the file browser, I have all permissions (rwx) as my normal user - media.
Fstab is
//$  /media/tv  cifs username=administrator,password=******,domain=WORKGROUP,rw,noperm,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0  0
I am aware about using a credentials file however at this stage I just want to get it working correctly. I have tried specifying uid and gid as media also. Any help appreciated.
