Mount SMB (Server Message Block) or CIFS (Common Internet File System) shares. Note: you can also do the same thing by passing the -t cifs option to mount. More information:

  • Connect using the specified username or $USER by default (you will be prompted for a password):

mount.cifs -o user={{username}} //{{server}}/{{share_name}} {{mountpoint}}

  • Connect as the guest user (without a password):

mount.cifs -o guest //{{server}}/{{share_name}} {{mountpoint}}

  • Set ownership information for the mounted directory:

mount.cifs -o uid={{user_id|username}},gid={{group_id|groupname}} //{{server}}/{{share_name}} {{mountpoint}}
