Hi, I find that files (not directories) in an smbfs-mounted share always
have the sgid bit set. I've looked in the FAQ and HOWTO but didn't see
anything. I wonder if someone might suggest a way to fix it.
The share is served from Windows 2003 SP2 and mounted on a Fedora 10 Linux
machine (samba-client-3.2.5-0.23.fc10.i386) with this command line:
mount //wcl-fp1/shared /mnt/shared -t cifs -o user=x -o password=y
It works and from the Linux side files appear to be owned by user root and
group root. Directories appear from Linux to have permissions drwxrwxrwx+,
which is okay for this setup, but plain files have -rwxrwSrwx+ with an
unwanted sgid bit.
I have tried mounting with -o nosuid -o nosgid, but that does not make a
What should I do to stop the suid or sgid bits appearing to be set on plain
files? I would prefer to keep the Windows side unchanged and alter some
configuration on the client.
