I have done a brief search on this topic, and have come up with nothing
really useful. So if someone knows where this answer lies for this
version on samba, please let me know.
I am running Redhat 7.3 along with samba2.2.3a, my problem is my users
need to be able to mount windowsnt shares from within their home
directories on the redhat machine.
I have chmod +s /usr/bin/smbmount so that they are able to run this.
But now I am getting this error
mount.smbfs //mis/abm /home/ian/mis -o
libsmb based programs must *NOT* be setuid root.
19764: Connection to mis failed
SMB connection failed
Is there a way to fix this, I am also taking this as a security
Thanks any help greatly appreciated.
