Dear all,

I'm running a fileserver on Suse10. The purpose of this fileserver is to store only mailbackups.
I also have backupserver running Suse10 with Dar&Sarab installed. backups will be done on HDD. This
runs perfect.

because I need to mount the samba share of the fileserver to the backupserver i did:

mount -t smbfs -o username=root,password=xxx,debug=4 //ipaddress/mailbackup /mnt/servers/mailbackup

This will mount the samba share on the backupserver.

if I want to access the mounted share on the backupserver I can 'browse' to the first folder. After
that I get a permission denied error.

The permissions settings:

drwxrwx--- user.root user-mailbackup-folder
-rwxrw-r-- user.root user-mailbackup-files

drwxr-xr-x-- root.root user-mailbackup-folder
?              ?            user-mailbackup-files (permission denied error)

Because root ID is always '0' I thought this will be no problem to run Dar&Sarab and access the
users-mailbackup-files on the backupserver. Apparently this is not the case, and I'm a bit stuck

Why root can't access the user-mailbackup-files on the backupserver but CAN 'browse'
user-mailbackup-folder on the backupserver?

ps. Backup server is running Samba, Samba-client, Libsmbclient

Any help is appreciated.
