105 - CIFS mount for Windows File System

The Common Internet File System (CIFS) Protocol is a dialect of SMB. If you use this protocol,
you can get access to a file system on a windows system for Linux Environment.

1. Install Samba-client

    If you did not install samba-cleint, you need to do.

# yum install samba-client

2. Mount CIFS on a Linux Server.

# mount -t cifs //myserver/share  /mnt/share -o username=xxxx,password=xxxxx

Oracle RMAN (other backup) might not be working well for CIFS due to the block size, I do not recomend to use this.
