    f20 failed Remote File Systems with automount with windows share mount


    I am trying to mount a windows share over two computers directly connected with static IP addresses.
    Now I can mount the share with EVERYONE permissions via command line with:
    mount -t cifs -o username=mylogin,password=mypassword //169.254.0.3/myshare /tsda1s
    But I want persistance, so, I tried this in /etc/fstab
    //169.254.0.3/myshare /tsda1s cifs _netdev,username=mylogin,password=mypassword 0 0
    But get the error on boot.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Also I noted this morning an another error msg with connection socket could not be reached VFS code -101 error just before the Remote File Systems dependency error

    As you may have guessed you can't count on the network to be initialized before the drives are mounted. A better solution might be to mount it in an init script.
