I’m doing something wrong with my /etc/fstab but I don’t know enough to know what.
Mounting my share via
mount is great, easy, no problems. However when it comes to fstab it fails:
Here’s my fstab:
and my samba server settings:
I’ve censored a few things but hopefully this is still comprehensible. Shares are set up differently cause I’ve been messing with them to try and get something other than zero output from
Hoping it’s just a syntax error my eyes can’t see…
for verbose output. Your syntax looks solid, from what I remember about smb. Is there a reason you’ve chosen
noauto? If you’re having issues with network not being available before it tries to mount, use the
_netdev flag instead.
Here’s the output from the verbose:
And here’s a verbose out of using just
(Censoring is hard, rip)
noauto no real reason, I’ll probably set it to auto later. I just don’t want it trying to connect while rebooting to set up some other thing. I’ll toss
_netdev in there as well, can’t hurt.
Remove the noauto flag.
All specified devices within
/etc/fstab will be automatically mounted on startup and when the
-a flag is used with mount(8) unless the
noauto option is specified. Devices that are listed and not present will result in an error unless the
nofail option is used.
I wasn’t 100% sure until I saw that
ignored message in your mount command output.
That was it, rip
Working perfectly now, thank you!
Happy to help. Sometimes you just need to find the right bit of docs.
