smbmount - mount an smbfs filesystem
smbmount mounts a Linux SMB filesystem. It is usually invoked as mount.smbfs by the mount(8) command when using the "-t smbfs" option. This command only works in Linux, and the kernel must support the smbfs filesystem.
smbmount is a daemon. After mounting it keeps running until the mounted smbfs is umounted. It will log things that happen when in daemon mode using the "machine name" smbmount, so typically this output will end up in log.smbmount. The smbmount process may also be called mount.smbfs.
smbmount calls smbmnt(8) to do the actual mount. You must make sure that smbmnt is in the path so that it can be found.
Note that passwords which contain the argument delimiter character (i.e. a comma ',') will failed to be parsed correctly on the command line. However, the same password defined in the PASSWD environment variable or a credentials file (see below) will be read correctly.
username = <value> password = <value>
This is preferred over having passwords in plaintext in a shared file, such as /etc/fstab. Be sure to protect any credentials file properly.
The variable USER may contain the username of the person using the client. This information is used only if the protocol level is high enough to support session-level passwords. The variable can be used to set both username and password by using the format username%password.
The variable PASSWD may contain the password of the person using the client. This information is used only if the protocol level is high enough to support session-level passwords.
The variable PASSWD_FILE may contain the pathname of a file to read the password from. A single line of input is read and used as the password.
Passwords and other options containing , can not be handled. For passwords an alternative way of passing them is in a credentials file or in the PASSWD environment.
The credentials file does not handle usernames or passwords with leading space.
One smbfs bug is important enough to mention here, even if it is a bit misplaced:
Note that the typical response to a bug report is suggestion to try the latest version first. So please try doing that first, and always include which versions you use of relevant software when reporting bugs (minimum: samba, kernel, distribution)
Documentation/filesystems/smbfs.txt in the linux kernel source tree may contain additional options and information.
FreeBSD also has a smbfs, but it is not related to smbmount
For Solaris, HP-UX and others you may want to look at smbsh(1) or at other solutions, such as Sharity or perhaps replacing the SMB server with a NFS server.

The current maintainer of smbfs and the userspace tools smbmount, smbumount, and smbmnt is Urban Widmark. The SAMBA Mailing list is the preferred place to ask questions regarding these programs.
The conversion of this manpage for Samba 2.2 was performed by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.
