In this post, i will share on how to mount windows share folder on linux CentOS 6.3 server. Assumed that windows share folder has been configured properly with administrator privileged. This uses Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol. CIFS can lets you access to shared folder and files that are remotely on the server and can do read and write to them.
Windows Share: //192.168.2.51/Files Windows Credentials : username=administrator,password=mypassword
1. Execute the following command to mount Windows share folder :
[[email protected] /]# mount -t cifs -o username=administrator,password=mypassword //192.168.2.51/Files /mnt
2. Verify that Windows share folder already mounted to /mnt :
[[email protected] /]# df -k Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_centos63-lv_root 5716804 2451228 2975172 46% / tmpfs 515400 0 515400 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda1 495844 66280 403964 15% /boot //192.168.2.51/Files 476403708 343375460 133028248 73% /mnt
3. Add that Windows share folder into /etc/fstab file, so that it will auto mount once rebooted :
[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/fstab
Add the final line as below :
# # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sun Jul 15 20:17:38 2012 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk' # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info # /dev/mapper/vg_centos63-lv_root / ext4 defaults 1 1 UUID=2217c7b1-4467-4c81-8596-c3ee7758e2cc /boot ext4 defaults 1 2 /dev/mapper/vg_centos63-lv_swap swap swap defaults 0 0 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 //192.168.2.51/Files /mnt cifs username=administrator,password=mypassword 0 0
