We have a windows (Active Directory) domain at work. We want to replace some workstations with Ubuntu. I have now an Ubuntu 12.04 with likewise open and i am trying to make it work with the domain. I am able to join the domain using my domain credentials. What i want to do is to be able to mount the public folders. I am familiar with mounting via cifs and it is working fine. My problem is that the group policy requires the workstations to change their passwords once a month. Can I find a permanent way of mounting the shared without having to update the mount command every time the password changes?
