I've a windows machine in which a linux server is run by a "VMWare player". From the windows machine, I want some folders to be mounted on the Linux virtual server. All this is done in a maven build (which is quite irrevelant here, in fact). From what I understand, to make these windows folders available as mountable ones, I have to do the following operations
- Share the folders as Samba ones using net share, this I have done.
- Access my virtual server and check which folders are already mounted (which seems to be doable using a
less /etc/fstab), this I'll do soon
- Mount my samba shares using
All that seems to my by far too hackish code. Could the same be done using ... say ... JMX/SNMP or any other high-level technology ?
