How to permanently mount samba share with root priveleges? I've used this FAQ but still getting the same error. The point is i don't want to send credentials in plane text.
User credentials file:
username=USER password=password domain=sanctuary
[global] valid users = USER browsable = yes guest ok = no read only = no available = yes public = no writable = yes comment = USH security = user workgroup = Sanctuary create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 unix password sync = yes [share] comment = archive path = /share directory mask = 0777 create mask = 0777
fstab: //192.168.1.50/share /media/share cifs credentials=/etc/samba/user,rw,uid=USER,iocharset=utf8,user,noauto,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.50/share, missing codepage or helper program, or other error (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program) In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
From connect to server menu in nautilus share mounts fine and dandy, but... again no root.
After simplifying a line in fstab to
fstab //192.168.1.50/share /media/share cifs credentials=/etc/samba/user,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
i get the error:
mount: only root can mount //192.168.1.50/share on /media/share
Actually i got share mounted with:
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
But i still cannot write inside it - is says Permission denied
Update 3 SOLVED
Source of proublem was messed up/non-tweaked permissions
sudo chmod 777 /share
on server helped.
