If that's right then there may be something wrong with your fstab entry...?
PS if you do end up working this out, be great if you could post back as no doubt others may run into a similar issue.
Once everything checks out, it is time to configure your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system to automatically mount the new file system(s) whenever it boots.
create a file for your remote servers logon credential: gedit ~/.smbcredentials 1.1 Enter your Windows username and password in the file: username=user password=******* 1.2 Change the permissions of the file to prevent unwanted access to your credentials: chmod 600 ~/.smbcredentials 2.
The quickest way to auto-mounting a password-protected share is to edit /etc/fstab (with root privileges), to add this line: //servername/sharename /media/windowsshare cifs iocharset=utf8,credentials=/home/ubuntuusername/smbcredentials,gid=1234, 0 0 3.
To probe filesystem type and read label and uuid for /dev/sdb2 (or any other device) use vol_id command: /dev/sda1: TYPE="ntfs" UUID="A0F0582EF0580CC2" /dev/sda2: UUID="8c2da865-13f4-47a2-9c92-2f31738469e8" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" /dev/sda3: TYPE="swap" UUID="5641913f-9bcc-4d8a-8bcb-ddfc3159e70f" /dev/sda5: UUID="FAB008D6B0089AF1" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sdb1: UUID="32c61b65-f2f8-4041-a5d5-3d5ef4182723" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" /dev/sdb2: UUID="41c22818-fbad-4da6-8196-c816df0b7aa8" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" Your support makes a big difference: I have a small favor to ask. Many of you block advertising which is your right, and advertising revenues are not sufficient to cover my operating costs. The nix Craft, takes a lot of my time and hard work to produce.
While most of the steps required to add or remove storage depend more on the system hardware than the system software, there are aspects of the procedure that are specific to your operating environment.
I vaguely recall reading a workaround somewhere but sorry can't give you any pointers.
If you keep in mind that TKL v12.x is based on Debian perhaps you can find smoething via google?
This section explores the steps necessary to add and remove storage that are specific to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Also make sure you have decided on the best partition size.
Thanks Basically do the followings on the smb client 1: chkconfig netfs on 2: service netfs start For example if the smb server hostname is hello.and the share name is share 3: On the smb client touch a file for example /etc/mysmbpass chmod 755 /etc/mysmbpass 4: On the smb client vim /etc/fstab add the following to the fstab 5: On the smb client cd / then create a mount point mkdir -p /mysmb for example and if you want read and write access do the follow below if read only then replace the rw woth ro.
See how the /etc/mysmbpass should look like vim /etc/mysmbpass username=bob (In this case my user name is bob) password=bob123 (In this case my password is bob123) 6: vim /etc/fstab //hello./mysmb -rw,_netdev,credentials=/etc/mysmbpass 0 0 save file 7: Test your new entry 8: mount -a 9: run df command to make sure it mounts with no errors 10: reboot your smb client server to make sure the samba file system mounts on reboot.
This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. After I pressing Ctrl Alt Del for restarting it gives the message "/usr file system is busy. Actually I restart the linux machine from another machine through telnet. So you will probably have to boot into rescue mode with the 1st shrike CD.
