I'm trying to mount a remote Windows directory, which happens to have a space in its name; "mount -a" returns the following error:
fstab: /etc/fstab:14: Inappropriate file type or format
I have tried both of the following formats:
//user at host/Win\ Partition /mountpoint smbfs rw 0 0
"//user at host/Win Partition" /mountpoint smbfs rw 0 0
I pulled this format directly from "man mount_smbfs 8":
"//guest at samba/public /smb/public smbfs rw,noauto 0 0"
I searched the archives, and it seems this question had been asked once before, but no conclusion was reached:
