I apologize in advance if I missed something simple. I have an SSD connected to my router as a USB drive and accessible from any device by just entering the UID and PW. From the RPi I just click Network, and it shows in the list, click again enter credentials and I can navigate on that disk copy, and read.
I would like to permanently mount a folder on the Pi to that drive/subfolder
I am confused when reading the fstab document on GitHub. I think I should be using cifs when mounting but I do get error messages:-
I have created a sub folder under /mnt called NetworkBackup
The network folder as used below exist on the SMB drive: Z:\RPI_Backups\MQTT_server (Copied from Windows)
My mount command(UID and PW is fictitious):-
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=tom,password=Pa55word
This is the exact string from RPi GUI after connected to the specific folder
smb://tp-share/g on tp-share/USB_NAS/RPI_Backups/MQTT_server
I then receive the following error:-
mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
I understand this step is just to confirm the RPi can connect to the shared folder and that the final step will still be o add the line to fstab to make it persistent.
I will really appreciate help with this
