I'm trying to setup automounting of a samba share for our users. Unfortunately it seems that mount.cifs refuses to mount a share for users if it's not in the /etc/fstab . This seems to be a change the CIFS guys made for security reasons a while back. I'm running Ubuntu Natty. Has anyone got a workaround? Chmod +s on /sbin/mount.cifs doesn't work I'm afraid.
