I am having troubles mounting a share from a server running Windows Server 2003. I am able to mount the server as root, but am unable to mount it as a user. Here is what I have in fstab :
//dev1-04/wwwdev$ /mnt/dev cifs user,noauto,username=mikec 0 0
I'm ignorant when it comes to linux file permissions by the way.. So I want to be able to mount the share without being root, thats all. When I try, I get a permission denied error. It sounds simple enough..I would just like someone to point me in the right direction.
Upong reading into some other forums, I was pointed to some a note in the man page that I had overlooked.
This command may be used only by root, unless installed setuid, in which case the noeexec and nosuid mount flags are enabled.
Okay, well I understand that and all, but I'm still confused. How will this help me. I will accept casual put downs and insults to my intelligence..as long as they are accompanied by kind suggestions.
