From a linux machine, it’s a little complicated. First install cifs-utils:
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
Then make a mount point that’s not in your home dir (if that’s in afs,
it gets awkward since you need to use root to mount a share and sudo
doesn’t pass your tickets/tokens to root).
I’ve been putting it in /media
You need to know your uid and gid. The gid and id match your cs account, you can use the id command to see
what they are.
id -u “your-username”
id -g “your-username”
Then sudo -i to get to root and run:
sudo mount //hostname/share -t cifs -o
If it works, you should be able to access the Shared folder from /media/Shared.
