mount – How to create a mounting point to a shared drive from a linux subsystem on a Windows machine?

I have a Windows machine (Windows-10). There I’ve installed the Ubuntu app from Canonical Group Limited, this allows me to have a Ubuntu subsystem, which I regularly use for grep, sort and other interesting commandline tools.

Now I have created a shared drive on another machine (\other_machineLog), which contains some logfiles I’d like to analyse.

I have created two mounting points in order to access the C:-drive and the D:-drive on my PC, this is working fine:

Linux Prompt$ df -hk
Filesystem     1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
C:            999036924 731107332 267929592  74% /mnt/c
D:            976727036   2621776 974105260   1% /mnt/d

Now I guess that, in order to access the mentioned shared directory, I need to create a mounting point towards that directory.

Does anybody know how I can do that?



I am willing to modify the /etc/mtab file, if that is what is takes:

Linux Prompt>cat /etc/mtab
C:134 /mnt/c drvfs rw,noatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,case=off 0 0
D:134 /mnt/d drvfs rw,noatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,case=off 0 0
