I made a crazy mistake! When I edited fstab, by mistake I pasted UUID on the first line just before # /etc/fstab. wrong: UUID="9dd9d9a0-79f1-4fed-86ba-9a1b1ea3f1cc"# /etc/fstab: static file system information. correct: # /etc/fstab: static file system information.


You should add this line to your fstab: /dev/sda3 /Acer ntfs-3g defaults,user,rw,umask=000 0 0


Change your ~/.smbcredentials user=myUser password=pass domain=WORK That's all ;) The problem occurs when you use the user name and the domain name together. And please revert the changes for ~/.smbcredentials chmod o-rwx,-x ~/.smbcredentials


It is not possible to setup automounting options in fstab to mount two partitions to the same mount point. You can mount your pen drive somewhere else with nofail parameter. You will not get error messages if pen drive is not plugged.


Found this question which answers it for me. Basically, Samba can do hostname lookups, while mount can't. I set the IP address instead of the hostname in /etc/fstab, and it worked like a charm.
