Are people just ignoring my question because I messed something up, not
getting it, or does no one know anything?

Subject: [Samba] Getting Owner of Files on Mounted Windows Share

Hello everyone,
I have an obscure issue that I have been so far unable to find the
answer to.  I have successfully mounted a windows NTFS file share using
samba via the following command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=<USERNAME>,workgroup=<WORKGROUP>
//winserver/winpath /mnt/win

It mounts just fine but performing an ls -al command shows my user (or
"root") as the owner of all files, when this isn't the case.  Is it
possible to get the proper Windows owner of files through a
samba-mounted windows file share?

Thanks in advance.
