Hi. I am experimenting with the Linux CIFS client included with Linux
2.6.6, and I am having some problems.
First, I tried to map shares from a Samba 2.0.10 server (old machine).
Is this supposed to work at all? The mount succeeds, and I can
traverse and list directories, but any attempt to open a file for
reading results in "permission denied". The Samba server logs this
[2004/05/15 17:45:46, 0] smbd/nttrans.c:map_share_mode(443)
map_share_mode: Incorrect value 80000000 for desired_access to file \path\to\file
If I use the same mount options with "smbmount", everything works
fine. Access to this Samba server from any Windows client works fine,
Next, I tried to map shares from a Samba 2.2.7a server. This time,
the mount itself fails with "mount error 13 = Permission denied". The
server is configured with "security = server" and "password server =
MYPDC". If I increase the debug level on the server, I can see that
it logs these messages:
connected to password server MYPDC
password server MYPDC rejected the password
(This behavior is the same whether or not I provide a "dom=" option to
Again, if I use the same mount options (including username and
password) with "smbmount", everything works fine. Access to this
Samba server from Windows clients works fine, too.
So my question is, should I expect the Linux CIFS client to work with
Samba 2.0.x or 2.2.x? If so, what am I doing wrong, or what can I do
to help debug this?
