more tips on using mount.cifs with docker

this image is a fork from sigma/mount.cifs_copy

Delivering mount.cifs to a docker host:

docker run -it --rm -v /opt/bin/:/target so0k/mount.cifs_copy /target

Source on github

Usage running CoreOS on Hyper-V:

Hyper-V does not provide guest additions as used by vagrant/boot2docker, however if a mount.cifs binary is dropped into the CoreOS VM (i.e. in /opt/bin/) - similar transparency can be obtained:

demo (from a windows host, using CoreOS VM as docker_host):

PoC "installation" script:

Expects windows host is sharing folder as prj, windows host ip = and mounts this as /mnt/win/.



#/opt/bin will automatically be created and is included in $PATH
#docker run --rm -v /opt/bin:/target so0k/mount.cifs-copy:6.4 /target

read -s -p "Password: " SMB_PASS
printf "\n"
printf "mounting drive to $WIN_MOUNT\n"
sudo /opt/bin/mount.cifs //$SMB_HOST/$SMB_SHARE $WIN_MOUNT -o nolock,username=$SMB_USER,pass=$SMB_PASS,iocharset=utf8

Mount on boot:

a unit file could be created to map samba shares on start up.
(I have not tested this unit file - comment please for corrections)

cifs-utils 6.5 was released february 2016 and I will build new tag for it, but I wonder about ... seems cifs-utils do not require a patch for this?

@rochapabloricardo - the issue you refer to on stakoverflow uses KiteMatic with Docker Machine. Docker Machine uses boot2docker ISO which is a modified Tiny Core Linux (TLC). I think there are packages you can use with boot2docker to mount shares from your windows host, if you are not using VirtualBox guest services to mount drives into your docker machine... I personally prefer not to work with TLC and I am using Hyper-V instead of VirtualBox. In short, Yes, this image can help you fix the issue you face, but only if you want to go the long way and learn to do a few things manually.
