Share path?
« on: October 03, 2018, 09:52:34 pm »
I have a Linkstation 220 that I'm trying to mount on an Ubuntu 18 machine.  I know that it works because I can mount and access it using Ubuntu's built in file manager.  However, I want to mount it using /etc/fstab so that I can access it from the terminal.  However, I keep getting "mount error(112) host is down" errors.  I assume that's because I don't have the right path to the shared folder, but I can't find anything online to suggest the right way to find that.

I have a shared folder called "Documents" that is on volume "Array1", if that matters.  Running
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t cifs // /drive/Documents -o username=guest,password= or its fstab counterpart yields a mount error 112.  I've tried all sorts of different combinations of the folder name and volume name, as well as various names I found online.  I'm really out of ideas here, and it would be nice to know how to mount the drive from the command line, especially if I ever need to access it over ssh on a headless system.
