Some people are having difficulties mounting CIFS shares with Webmin using openFLIXR.
Most of the times this is a problem with mounting the shares with not enough permissions.
I’m using a Windows 2012 R2 Fileserver for this.
Let get started.
First logon to your fileserver, and configure a user with FULL Access permisions.
Right click the folder you’d like to mount, and choose properties.
Go to the tab Sharing, and select “Share”.
Select Find people, and locate the user you connect with CIFS with.
Find the user:
Permission level: Read/Write
Now click Share.
Go to the security tab, and add the user and give the user full acces permissions.
Now the Fileserver side is done.
Mounting the share with Webmin
Login to the webinterface, and select System -> Disk and Network Filesystems
Select Type: CIFS, and press “Add mount”
Mount the downloads folder at /mnt/downloads
Server name: Ip/hostname of your fileserver
Share name: Share name of your folder (my case downloads)
Now you need to fill in the login details for your mount.
Repeat the steps for all mounts you’d like to add, and continue the setup.
