How to mount Remote Windows File System in Linux (CIFS)


This post is to tell you how to mount a remote windows file system in Linux/Unix platform.
There is a filesystem called CIFS in the recent years called (Common Internet File System). Older linux versions has SMBFS (Samba File System) where in both the cases you can mount the remote windows Server file systems in Linux.

Here are the simple steps to do that.
1. You need to know the Mounted Windows Username and Password
2. Should have the Linux Super User (root login) for your Linux Machine
3. The Windows share folder

Here are the steps:
Step 1: Open the Terminal in Linux and enter into the su mode (Super user mode)
$] su
$] mkdir -p /mnt/windowserver (Create a mountable folder in the /mnt directory, this directory is again accessible with root rights)
$] mount.cifs //machinename/sharefolder  /mnt/windowserver -o username=administrator, password=myPassword

If you want to mount the entire directory, then from an IP, then
$] mount.cifs //192.168.1.1/D$  /mnt/windowserver -o username=administrator, password=myPassword

See the image below to see the mounted folder.
Mount CIFS
Mount CIFS

The above command may ask you to enter the password of the Remote windows machine. If the above line is not working, then enter the following line

$] mount -t cifs //machinename/sharefolder  /mnt/windowserver -o username=administrator, password=myPassword
