I have a network share mounted with cifs which does not work as expected. It should automount at boot and dismount at shutdown. It does not automount at boot, but "# mount -a" will mount it in the gui after booting finishes. This I can live with, but at shutdown or reboot, the cifs share hangs for about 30 seconds before dying. My /etc/fstab entry
# CIFS share for Sheeva backups etc
//sheeva/data-srv /media/data-srv cifs auto,defaults,rw,credentials=/path-to-username-passwd
I saw a bug report about the cifs umount issue, but can't find it at the moment. I did notice that it was a very old bug. If I remember to do "# umount /media/data-srv" before rebooting, all is fine, but I seem to constantly forget and then stew as the system hangs for an extra 30-45 seconds. I've tried several things to automate it including shutdown scripts added to /etc/init.d/ and elsewhere, but nothing seems to work. Anyone have this issue and find a work-around?
