Mounting Windows share using fstab but the mount folder doesn't populate automaticall
I have a RHEL 5.5 box which I am using the fstab to mount a Windows share automatically. I am using the below line to set up the mount.
//servername.local.domain/sharename /mnt/sharename cifs user,uid=500,rw,suid,username=adusername,password=password 0 0
This appears to work somewhat as the share shows up in the Computer location in Gnome. When you go to the /mnt/sharename directory there is nothing in it. If you open the share from the Computer location /mnt/sharename all of a sudden shows everything in the share and works like normal.
What am I missing in order to get the mount folder to show everything in the share automatically?
