Auto mounting Linux smb share on Windows at startup
This is a question that really should go to something like WindowsQuestions.org or something.
My problem is, I have a Linux server. It has a few smb shares. I want some programs (services) in one of the windows servers to access these shares. That is possible by mapping the linux share as a drive in windows. But the problem is if the windows server reboots, the shares are not available till somebody logs in. Even if we use the shares without mapping to a drive letter, like \\MyLinuxServer\MyShare, then the windows machine wouldn't have access to the Linux share because the Windows machine doesn't have a user name and a password. Is there a way to enable programs that starts automatically as services in a windows machine to gain access to a shared directory in Linux?
