Home Directory with SAMBA
From UVA Linux Users Group
This page is a quick guide to setting up home directory so as to be able to use it through SAMBA. While this may be considered insecure, this is how I have it working. It ends up mounted locally, and can be manipulated as though it was attached to my computer directly.
I set up a script to handle it all for me in Kubuntu. No guarantees that it will work in any other distro without modification.
sudo mount.cifs //home1.virginia.edu/mst3k /mnt/hds -o user=eservices/mst3k,uid=localusername
Make sure the directory you want to mount to, in our case /mnt/hds, exists before doing this. You may also need to install some SAMBA-related packages; Kubuntu will warn you if this is necessary. Replace mst3k in both places with your user name, and localusername with your user name that you are currently signed into your local machine with.
Once you chmod a+x the script, you should first be prompted for your sudo (local) password. Then you will be prompted for your UVA (E-Services) password. Once those are given, you should have a mounted home directory to utilize!
