Just learned how to mount samba for my backup. Before any backup operation, i need to mount my samba network drive from my Mac book. Here’s the command line version of how to mount samba in Mac OS.
To mount samba in Mac OS X, you can use the command below:-
$ mount -t smbfs //email@example.com/sharedirectory /Volumes/local_mount_dir
* You can replace /Volumes/local_mount_dir to your choice. (ex: /Volumes/sambashare)
Once you mount the samba network drive, you can start accessing your samba drive files thru /Volumes/local_mount_dir.
In case you want to unmount the samba network drive, you can use the command below:-
$ umount /Volumes/local_mount_dir
