Samba Client Won't Mount Shares on Reboot
I've searched high an low and am just stuck. I have a Coolmax 550 NAS box on my wireless network. It acts as an SMB server. WinXP can see it with no problems. I have added lines to the /etc/fstab on my Mandriva 2007 Linux box to mount the shares at startup, but the shares are not re-mounted when I reboot Linux. Here's a portion of my /etc/fstab file that "should" mount one of these shares at startup:
//baumann_nas/media /media/media smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/auth.baumann_nas.bruce,dmask=777,fmask=777,gid=nas ,uid=bruce,rw 0 0
The Coolmax uses uC OS, but I don't think it's an issue with the Coolmax.
Can anyone provide any insight on this? One thing I did read in the mount man page was the _netdev option to indicate that mounting should not occur until after the network is up. But I don't think that's where the problem lies, either. I would "think" that the system would recognize that smbfs shares would probably be network shares.
Once I log in as root and do mount -a, all the shares are visible. I do have to do this as root, probably because I didn't specify the user option to allow users to mount the shares.
If anyone has any thoughts on what I should try, I'd appreciate hearing them.
