On Arch’s Samba I found that I had to set the password on an existing user like so smbpasswd -a rufie. I have no idea where the password is actually stored. I found this would no work unless the existing user was in PAM. You will get a Could not find user BLAH and no add script defined otherwise.

client /etc/fstab

//nuc.local/raid1 /mnt/raid1 cifs username=hendry,uid=1000,gid=100,noauto,nofail,user

RAID1 configuration with USB drives

Btw I am actually RAID1 two external USB drives. It’s EXPERIMENTAL at this stage & I wouldn’t recommend doing this.

Btw I asked the samba list for some clarity regarding the PAM/passwd integration.
