Mount a Windows Share in Linux

Example: smbmount //ecenotes/et4757 /home/steviewdr/map_folder -oip=,username=staff\\stephen.burke

Example: Mount a share under a Particular User (uid), or Group (gid), smbmount //ecenotes/et4757 /home/steviewdr/map_folder -oip=,username=staff\\stephen.burke,uid=####

Misc:<br> nmblookup -U dns_server -R computer_name

To unmount the share: smbumount /folder/share

Problems with smbmnt

Recently, after an apt-get upgrade, I received the following: sburke@server:~$ smbmount //eceweb/ngcuv08 /home/steviewdr/mount -oip=,username=ul\\stephen.burke Password: smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts (2745,2745) smbmnt failed: 1

After some googling, the following resolved the issue: root@skynet:~# chmod +s /usr/bin/smbmnt
