I needed to mount a remote (located on 10.0.0.7) Samba folder (named solaria) so that I can use .iso file without downloading it to my local machine (Suse 11.1)
You can mount the remote driver by hand but I'm lazy so I want it mounted automatically so here is what I did:
1. Created a [solaria] folder in /mnt folder
2. Added the following line in /etc/fstab
//10.0.0.7/solaria/ /mnt/solaria cifs auto,password= 0 0
Now the next time you start you OS you will see the content of the remote folder in your /mnt/fstab
See that I used a blank (no) password for the smb account as I allow guest logins
You can also mount it with the next command
and unmount it with
One interesting stuff is that the old smbfs was renamed to cifs. Here is where I found this information.
