Neptune is our Windows Server here at IRL Computers/INGOTs and today I gave myself to the task of, sliming down my laptop, and fixing the samba mounting process.The issue was simple, I can’t get to mount any filesystem because lack of authentication. Then I launch the GUI mounting process from the commandline and got a report about why the mounting process is failing.
Then I came to this pete guy blog that showed me the same problem and how he discover cifs. And how by doing. mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=pass,domain=irlcomputers.com //NEPTUNE/Homes /mnt/Neptune I could finally mount Neptune, now I need to do the same for the rest.
