mount WIN cifs home directory on RedHat box

my WIN home folder which is defined as //wmd.edu/personalshare/HD3/duszyk “follows” me whenever I go and attaches itself to whatever WIN contraption I login. Now, I want it to be present on a LINUX box as well.
So, I make this entry into the /etc/fstab

\\wmd.edu\personalshare\HD3\duszyk /home/wmd   cifs  _netdev,username=duszyk,dir_mode=0755,file_mode=0755,uid=923810,gid=216

Execution of the mount command triggers request for my password which if corrects allows the share to be mounted as /home/wmd.

For a normal user the mount has to be sudoed and I suggest to include it in the .bashrc and the umount of the share in the .bash_logout as well.

Posted in LINUX.
