===== Setup
# tested on lubuntu 13.10, 16.04.2 desktop edition

#sudo apt-get install smbclient
#smbclient -L //server -U user # list shares, theres is a cifs-utils version now named (?)
#smbclient //server/share -U user # directly connect

sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/myra ~/myra/ -o username=tin.pham,noexec
Settled on,
adding user phantom to folder in synology.

===== Initial Connections
 
# From your clent system see what mounts are available on target system (this is the system sharing the data) 
# You can specify a user and verify your password works
smbclient -L //192.168.0.5 -U tin.pham
Enter tin.pham's password:

===== Troubleshoot

== Connect Directly using Samba to see if response is workig
# You may need to install smblcient first.
# Directly connect
smbclient //192.168.0.5/guest.public -U tin.pham
smb: \>
 
# Run ls to see results and help to see list of commads
smb: \>ls
 
== Try Using Local Directory
cd ~
mkdir guest.public
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/guest.public/ ~/guest.public/ -o username=tin.pham,noexec
===== List of mount
# Backing Up
su - phantom
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/guest.public /data/guest.public/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/myra /data/myra/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/pham /data/pham/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/rsync /data/rsync/ -o username=rsync,noexec # remember to use different password
sudo mount -t cifs  //192.168.0.5/tin.archive /data/tin.archive -o username=phantom,noexec

# For writing
su - tin.pham
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/guest.public /mnt/guest.public/ -o username=tin.pham,noexec # Torrents

# List samba cifs mounts
sudo mount -t cifs

# List all mounts with more details
sudo mount -v

This CIFS Utils and Samba wikipedia article has lots good points,

  • CIFS is the extension of the SMB protocol.
  • In-kernel CIFS filesystem is generally the preferred method for mounting SMB/CIFS shares on Linux.
  • The cifs-utils package is not part of Samba, although they were originally included with it.

apt-cache policy cifs-utils - see version installed

This is More Personal Just Dumping

Crashplan mounts using user phantom which only has read access,

sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/guest.public /data/guest.public/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/myra /data/myra/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/pham /data/pham/ -o username=phantom,noexec
sudo mount -t cifs  //192.168.0.5/rsync /data/rsync -o username=phantom,noexe
sudo mount -t cifs  //192.168.0.5/tin.archive /data/tin.archive -o username=phantom,noexec

CrashPlan Client

Errors

Got this error on a fresh Ubuntu Desktop 16.05.2 LTS system

sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.5/guest.public/ ~/guest.public/ -o username=tin.pham,noexec
mount: //192.168.0.5/guest.public/ is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: cannot mount //192.168.0.5/guest.public/ read-only

Answer is that you must instal cifs-utils which mount command then hooks into. Not very clear at all.

Auto Mounting Modifying Fstab

Create credential file for id of user of target mount in /root/ using root. Change to remove read by "other".

/etc/fstab

//192.168.0.5/guest.public /data/guest.public/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0

This is what worked for on my server with some finicking... I'll write this up later,

# Mount NFS drive for Plex serveradmin
192.168.0.5:/volume1/guest.public /opt/mnt/guest.public/ nfs4

Working System Example

And this is now my working system looked,

Make directories in a my own data folder as my normal user,

cd /data/
mkdir guest.public myra pham tin.archive rsync pham.encrypted

Get the uid and gui of your account which in my case is uid=2000 and gid=50

cat /etc/passwd | grep 2000
tin.pham:x:2000:50:Support Tin Pham:/home/tin.pham:/bin/bash

/etc/fstab file ended up looking.. I'm using a more privileged account here, but have specified to mount using ro = read only. Thegid= and  uid=,

//192.168.0.5/guest.public /data/guest.public/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0
//192.168.0.5/myra /data/myra/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0
//192.168.0.5/pham /data/pham/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0
//192.168.0.5/tin.archive /data/tin.archive/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0
//192.168.0.5/rsync /data/rsync/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0
//192.168.0.5/pham.encrypted /data/pham.encrypted/ cifs uid=2000,gid=50,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,ro 0 0

Reboot and if all things work those directories will now be mounted with the NAS data.
