mounting file systems and autofs tips and samples

mounting nfs via fstab

server:/usr/local/pub    /pub   nfs    rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr

Can check the nfs sharing status by using “showmount -e server”

for nfs in autofs,
to mount the directory /hostdir on /misc/mountpoint on your machine, add the following line to auto.master:

/misc   /etc/auto.misc --timeout 60
then in auto.misc
mountpoint  -rw,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192   nfshost.com:/hostdir
service autofs reload

some other autofs config

cdrom   -fstype=iso9660,ro,sync,nodev,nosuid    :/dev/cdrom
floppy   -fstype=auto,sync,nodev,nosuid          :/dev/fd0
usbdrive -fstype=vfat,uid=1002,gid=1002,umask=002        :/dev/sda1

for samba in autofs, eg

/MY_DIR  -fstype=smbfs,username=yourname,password=yourpass,uid=1000,gid=1000   ://server/dir

samba in fstab, eg

//sambaserver/dir  /yourdir/dir  smbfs  username=yourname,password=yourpass  0 0
