Question Samba/Cifs Home Directory Mount


Hello! I'm using samba with as a primary domain controller, and I need a way to map home directories for each user. Can I somehow map a network drive to /home and maintain all of the permissions? All of my samba stuff works great mapping from Windows, but I don't really understand how Fedora 6 treats samba shares. Help?

Thanks,

Scott K Logan

Hi Scott,

Can you re-state your problem?
Do you have a windows domain controller and want to map home directories on the domain controller to linux workstations?
Linux workstations generally mount a network share from a windows machine using the following format:
Code:
mount -t smbfs -o username=<domain>\<username>,password=<domainpassword> //<servername>/<sharename$> /path/to/mount/on
The line to add to the /etc/fstab file to do the same thing on boot would be:
Code:
//<servername>/<sharename$> /path/to/mount/on  smbfs auto,username=<domain>\<username>,password=<domainpassword> 0 0
