Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

I will look into XFE (it's pretty ugly by default!) - thanks for the suggestion and thanks again for your help!

Next project will be to add a shared share (a directory more than one user can access), but that's for tomorrow :-)

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

OK, so I've set everything up on my client now... The directory structure appears (/mnt/Samba/Dan) when I browse it in Thunar, but Dan seems to be owned by root and I can't right-click and create a new file. EDIT: Nevermind, it's all working now. I tried creating a file from the terminal and that wo...

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

Oh well, that's embarassing! I thought this all had to be done on the server... I'm so sorry!

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

No - my server is Debian Wheezy as it needs a non-PAE kernel. My client is Linux Mint 17 XFCE (I think I did mention that in my first post). Does that change things?

Code: Select all

dan@slave:~$ sudo service autofs stop
[sudo] password for dan:

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

Ah, my bad - I think this is what you're after: dan@slave:~$ sudo automount -vf Starting automounter version 5.0.7, master map /etc/auto.master using kernel protocol version 5.02 lookup(dir): dir map /etc/auto.master.d missing or not readable lookup(file): failed to read included master map dir:/etc...

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

I can't see the mount like that and get the following error message after the last command you gave:

Code: Select all

username@proxy ~ $ ls -l /mnt/Samba/Dan
ls: cannot access /mnt/Samba/Dan: No such file or directory

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

Why not post the mount command you use to access the server from Mint and we'll use that as an example of how you would mount it using AutoFS? Thanks for the quick reply! Here's the relevant parts of my /etc/samba/smb.conf : security = user encrypt passwords = true [Dan] path = /mnt/Storage/dan val...

Re: HowTo: Auto Mounting Samba Shares Using AutoFS

Hi, Your guides have really helped me - thanks! I have a question about AutoFS. At the top of this guide you mention that you should have a working Samba share. Then, later in the guide, you say that AutoFS will create the mount points needed. I'm a little confused how to proceed from my current sta...
