Here I'm describing the problem where my Linux MInt 17.3 Rosa has a problem to access a share provided through FreeNAS CIFS (version 9.10 STABLE). Windows machines have been able to access, but from the linux I had received rrror msessages.
I'm trying to solve a problem of network backuping on our FreeNAS server. I've already tried CIFS (where were some issues - Linux Mint - problem to access a FreeNAS CIFS share) however I have there a performance issue, especially working with huge number of files produced by the backup proces (deja-dup backup over the net). As the second alternative I'm going to try iSCSI to map a network disk/file from a freenas server.
Here I will briefy describe how to mount a remote windows folder to a local mint linux machine. In general, on the web there are plenty of pages how to do that. However I will focus on situation where windows is using an active direstory or domain based authentication.
