connect to windows share from ESX Server

you need to be in the 'bin' directory to run this

First you need to enable samba services on your ESX server’s firewall:

(from the ESX server console)

esxcfg-firewall -e smbClient

Create location on the esx server to mount the share to.

for e.g. mkdir /home/test

enable netfs – netfs is a file system interface to the networking stack of the ESX OS

chkconfig netfs on
service netfs start

mount -t smbfs -o username=,password= //servername/sharename /vmimages/iso

user domain\username format if need be.
