Mount CIFS/Windows Share on Fedora
first thing to do is login to a command prompt, and switch to root
do yum install cifs-utils
from here we need to make a folder to mount to
now we need to set to mount on startup
we are going to mount our windows Archive Share
add this line to the config file:
substitute ipaddress, username/password for an account that would have credentials to that share
save + quit once done (esc and then :wq)
*** CAUTION *** The next command will REMOUNT ALL FILESYSTEMS, do in OFF-BUSINESS HOURS!
issue the mount -a command
as we can see, our windows share has mounted
do a LS, we should be able to see all our files/folders
