Mount with FSTAb error


I tried to mount a NAS to my FSTAB and when I type
Code:
mount -a
it tells me Line 12 has un error. And line 12 is the line I just added

Code:
//mirosred2/volume_1/COPSEG	/mnt/COPSEG	cifs	user=admin	password=djfuri5675 user,auto,rw    0    0
Is there something wrong with this line?

I just installed samba and cifs from synaptic.

At a minimum you have syntax errors. After the 'cifs' ( fstype ) starting at user= should be a comma separated list. You have user twice, should only be once.

Other problems, not sure.

Here is a link to a how to, with several examples.

Hope this helps.

The user and password are part of the mount-options, which is a comma separated list. You're missing some comma's.

A few notes aside.
Next time also show us the error message that you got. It makes it easier to diagnose the problem.
I hope you didn't show us the real username and password for the nas box. That seems to be a very bad habit, I've been told.
Normally you would only name the host-machine and the share name as the mount source. Like this
Code:
//sirius/samba   /data/samba   cifs   cred=/etc/cred.gdj   0   0
As you see I use a credentials file to store the user/password information and which is only accessible by root.

Well, I changed password and username.
Problem is the comma separatted list as you told me. I fix it and it works.
Thank you very much.

What credential file? Give me an example of that file please.

It's just text file with the following information:
Code:
username=name
password=password
domain=domain
You can also look at
Code:
man mount.cifs
For the specific mount options for cifs.
