Mounting a smb share under linux

Terminal Linux Smb Cifs Mount

I can never remember this, so here it is when I come back to look for it.

sudo su
mkdir -p /mnt/fileserver/torgeir/
 mount -t cifs //fileserver/torgeir/ /mnt/fileserver/torgeir/ \
   -o 'username=<username>,password=<password>,iocharset=utf8,vers=3.1.1'

(Notice the space in front of the command to prevent it from ending up in zsh history. This is accomplished by export HISTCONTROL=ignoreboth in the shell.)

Future self will thank me.
