Recently i tried to upgrade my Mac OS X 10.10 to OS X El Capitan. After upgrade, i noticed that there is an issue connect smb share via Finder -> Connect to Server

As i need to access Samba server to access some important files for my work, i try to access Samba Server via command line.

Below are the steps to mount network share via command line.:-

First, create a folder called “test” somewhere in your home directory (wherever). Then open a terminal and type

mount -t smbfs //user@server_IP/sharename test

From the Finder, look in your home directory for the ‘test’ folder. It should appear to be an alias. Once you click it, the mounted volume will appear on your desktop.
