Mounting marvin remotely
If you find password issues/Error 13 Access Denied messages it is likely because your password on marvin is different to the password that is in the ldap records on marvin. To reset your ldap password get an admin to run smbldap-passwd <username> to reset the password to a known value, then get the user to set their password using smbldap-passwd **not** passwd.
Firstly you'll need to make a .smbcredentials file in the format:
Change the permissions:
chmod 600 .smbcredentials
Now you can mount it from the command line:
sudo mount -t cifs -o vers=1.0,credentials=/home/jw279/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000 --verbose //marvin.st-andrews.ac.uk/jw279 /home/jw279/Marvin/
changing /home/jw279/.smbcredentials to the path of your .smbcredentials file, replacing jw279 in //marvin.st-andrews.ac.uk/jw279 with your username and /home/jw279/Marvin to the desired mount location.
Alternatively, add a line to /etc/fstab
//marvin.st-andrews.ac.uk/jw279 /home/jw279/Marvin cifs vers=2.0,credentials=/home/jw279/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
replacing jw279 in //marvin.st-andrews.ac.uk/jw279 with your username and /home/jw279/Marvin to the desired mount location.
