Auto Mount On Boot Win32 Shares
I am trying to get a windows share to mount on boot on a Suse 8 Pro Linux Box. I have tried the following:


#added line
//NTSERVER/Server home/webserver/mnt/server smbfs username=myuser,password=pass 0 0

This does not work.

If I try manually doing this from prompt:

mount -t smbfs //NTSERVER/Server home/webserver/mnt/server username=myuser,password=pass

it works fine.

still no luck :(
I have tried everything I can find...


//NTSERVER/Server /mnt/Server smbfs auto,username=user,password=pass 0 0

//NTSERVER/Server /mnt/Server smb username=user,password=pass 0 0

I tried loading autofs on boot too... all references to this look to be quite old, is this needed for auto smbmounting?

I also have tried using some utilities like LinNeighborhood and WebMin. If I create a mount and check the option to recreate on boot, it creates all the entries in /etc/fstab BUT it does not load the mount.

If I mount manually once server is booted, Voila! Works... :( but I want it to auto mount :(

The mounts seem to be happening prior to the network being loaded, how can I check if this is the problem and how can I fix this?

Please :cry: Help?
