Question Need a hand with making persistant mounts, please.

Hi folks,

I recently picked up a snap server, and I have it mounted up to a Redhat server that I have here at work.

The command that I ran to mount it was:

mount -t smbfs -o username=xx,password=xx //server/share /mnt/snap

How can I set my server so that this share comes back upon reboot? I'm not sure if this would be a smb.conf or fstab edit, but I checked both files and neither seems obvious.

Any advice would really be appreciated. Thanks!

Try fstab, I read somewhere that's where you put it. I'm not saying you could not use smb.conf, but I myself would start trying at fstab...

Hey, don't the man pages of smb.conf (and fstab) tell you that? I'm pretty sure they do, read them

man smb.conf
man fstab
