Yes, there are two.
One uses Unix Tools on windows (component that can be installed, feature depending on  the os version) and the shares are accessed using NFS (Network File Share)
The other is using samba.

You can would need  to integrate the centos box into the domain using samba and winbind.

Usually the centos box is a file server

No need of samba as its windows share need to be mounted on linux use NFS just need to edit file.

/etc/exports (inlinux)

and restart NFS and Portmap daemons

Here's another way with smbclient instead of services for unix.

Install smbclient on Centos/Redhat.
yum install smbclient

List the shares on the remote system
smbclient -l WINDOWS_HOST

Mount the windows share.
/usr/bin/smbclient \\\\WINDOWS_HOST\\SHARE mypasswd

Correction to post 39308674, to list shares it is "-L" -

smbclient -L $host -U username

Open in new window


You can use mount command and include in /etc/fstab on a reboot. As long as you have smbclient installed -
mount -t cifs //$host/$share /tmp/share1 -o username=xxx,passwrd=xxx

Open in new window
