On the Oracle database server, mount the NAS device.
Add the following command to the /etc/fstab file to mount the share at boot time on a Red Hat Linux system:
//CIFS_server/share_name /var/opt/etl/load cifs username=<userName>,password='<password>',_netdev,auto 0 0
Run the following command to mount the shares specified in the fstab file:
$ mount –a
Another way to test at runtime is with the following command template. (The mount does not persist after a system reboot). Depending on your system, you may need to replace
mount –t cifs with
# mount -t cifs //<server/shareName> /var/opt/etl/load -o username=<shareUser>,password=<sharePassword>,domain=<domainName>
