But I only have one instance of smbd and nmbd and they are installed root?
$ ls -l /usr/sbin/smbd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2447222 Jan 28 11:33 /usr/sbin/smbd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 858944 Jan 28 11:33 /usr/sbin/nmbd
I'm gonna take a guess and say thay perhaps you didn't install that
Samba package as the root user.
As a result, "direct user mounts" are not allowed.
Hope this helps.
