mount network drive fstab/umask?


Some background info...

I set up a script for my boss to run that mounted a Windows network shared drive. I set up sudo for it to work. The problem is when the script is run the directories and files are owned by root and he doesn't write access.


There has to be a way to set up the system so only he can mount the drive and then only he has access to the files. I was playing with the fstab file. I read some stuff on it, but I didn't fully understand it so I was blindly trying different things.

Has anyone done something similar or does anyone have any ideas at all?

Thanks in advance,
Matt

here would be an example of how to put an NFS volume in the fstab file, i'm sure the entry for a windows share would be similar

192.168.36.1:/mnt/burn1 /mnt/burn1 nfs defaults 0 0
it would probably look like
192.168.36.1:share smbfs defaults 0 0

hmm, that would have something to do with permissions, perhaps if only that user had the username and password for the samba share and you gave him a shell script that mounts it?
