Hi   Folks,

  I'm attempting to mount a guest smb share on my   server at boot up.
set up a .nsmbrc file which will get me past a   password login if I
try to
mount it after a log in, and I've added the   following line to my 
fstab file.

//guest@server/DataHeap   /mnt/server smbfs rw 0 0

Now, since my .nsmbrc file is in my home   directory, it's clearly not
during boot up and the whole process   pauses waiting for me to input 
an empty

Can I somehow   add a flag to fstab to tell it it's only a guest
account and
thus   doesn't need a password or perhaps move the .nsmbfs file
where   it's picked up at boot time? Any ideas?

I did this a few years ago and I remember there was some flag in fstab , I`m not sure but it was something like :
//guest@server/DataHeap /mnt/server smbfs rw,-N 0 0
Hope it helps.


If UNIX doesn't have the solution you have the wrong problem. 
UNIX is simple, but it takes a genius to understand it's simplicity.
