    Default More Mounting help needed

    Hey Guys,

    I am trying to mount a WindowsXP shared folder onto OpenSuse11.

    I followed Swerdna's guide to samba, and his guide to permanent mounting.

    But I have hit a glitch I can't figure out.

    I have a shared folder, the folder is called "Serverfiles" right off the "C:/" drive. The other Windows machines see this shared folder and have mapped the folder.

    This is my fstab edit:

    Code:
    //192.168.0.10/ServerFiles /home/administrator/Documents cifs username=administrator,password=password,_netdev,uid=administrator,gid=users,nobrl 0 0
    When I reboot the OpenSuse, It is not working.

    I don't know where to see the problem.


    Thanks

    If you just run 'mount -a' as root does it work? Do you get any
    messages anywhere about it? Can you mount it manually from the command
    line? Does using 'smbfs' in place of 'cifs' help?

    Good luck.

    Does it make a difference that the opensuse username and the WinServer username are different?

    You can keep the "uid=administrator,gid=users". That's what it needs to set up the ownership of directory "Documents" and its contained files. In the part like this: "username=administrator,password=password" you must supply the windows username and password.

    Just an aide memoirs: in Suse, the directory "Documents" has permissions drwx------ as opposed to the more normal permissions on other directories (drwxr-xr-x). I can't remember whether that's relevant, probably not, but keep eye on that for complications, probably none.

    Don't try or use smbfs instead of cifs -- smbfs has been removed (in 10.2 I think IIRC).

    So if the opensuse desktop haas a username like "jack" and the xp has "administrator"

    Then I would use "uid=jack,gid=users" for the opensuse and keep "username=administrator,password=password" for the xp share.

    Thanks a million again, swerdna
