I need to mount a samba share directory on Ubuntu 16.04. Although the samba share directory(served by a Ubuntu 12.04 machine) has no password protection, the mount command still prompts the password hint:
# mount //10.117.47.250/view ~/target Password for root@/10.117.47.250/view:
To my surprise, it will mount the samba share directory successfully whatever I input after the password hint.
I found a solution that can disappear the password hint:
mount -o password= //10.117.47.250/view ~/target
Is there other solution can prohibit the password hint prompt?
