Hi - I'm attempting to mount a Windows dir to a mount point on my Linux VMWare instance running on my Windows 7 machine.
I am using a shell file to automatically mount the directory I want at bootup. However, I'm finding that Linux always mounts to a directory at the top of my C: file structure for some reason, and I can't figure out why.
Here's the dir structure:
C:/target (don't want to mount this, but this is what gets mounted)
C:/Users/me/target (this is what I want to mount to)
Here's my shell script:
mount.cifs //192.168.56.1/Users/me/target /mnt/target -o credentials=/root/credentials.auth,domain=mycomputer,uid=1001,gid=1001,rw
And here's what I get when I enter mount at the prompt:
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
If this means anything my Virtual Machine has a single hard drive SCSI, which I believe is /dev/sda1. I don't see anything from mount that would indicate that the c:/target dir is getting hard-mounted somehow from the /etc/vfstab file, but maybe I just don't understand how mounting works...
