Apache Tomcat Web Server - How to connect the web server to a windows file share
Posted on 2015-02-18
We are migration from a linux tomcat v5.5 install to a windows tomcat v 7.0.33 install. The Windows tomcat server runs on a Windows 2008 R2 server. IIS is not installed.
On the linux server this command is used to mount a windows file system in linux. It mounts the file system at server startup.
mount -t cifs -o username=samba,password=password //server/share/folder /folder/linux_mount_point
The linux based application running on Tomcat stores files on a Windows File server using the above mount point. Right now the Windows File server holds about 45 GB of files.
Now that the application is moving to a windows based tomcat platform, how do i configure the windows server to make the same type of connection the linux server makes? I prefer not to move the file locally to the new Window's tomcat server.
