I am running Manjaro Gnome on my Dell XPS 13 laptop and have been trying to mount a shared drive on my Mac-Mini server with some issues. When I start my laptop (from a cold boot), I see the following output on bootup:
Fstab Line For Reference:
//asifs-mac-mini.local/asifs\040hd /home/aahmad/Asifs-Mac-Mini cifs _netdev,username=aahmad,password=xxxxx 0 0
The issue is that when I boot up, obviously the shared drive is not available. However, when I run the ‘sudo mount’ command, usually it works properly:
sudo mount -va ✔ [sudo] password for aahmad: /boot/efi : already mounted /home : already mounted / : ignored mount.cifs kernel mount options: ip=10.0.1.100,unc=\\asifs-mac-mini.local\asifs hd,user=aahmad,pass=******** /home/aahmad/Asifs-Mac-Mini: successfully mounted
After executing this command, you can see the mount works and I can access all my files and data on the mac mini server without issue at this point.
I have been told it is a possible issue (since I am on a laptop) that the wifi is not available when the mount is trying to be mounted. However, the error is not very descriptive in terms of what is going on.
Is there any additional logging / debug information / etc. I can capture so I can be sure this is not another issue behind the scenes that is preventing it from mounting on boot?
Basically, I would like to start my laptop and have the shared mac-mini drive available as outlined in the fstab config mounted to a directory in my home dir location. Any help anyone could offer to help troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance to everyone for your time and help!
