[NOT solved]cifs not using uid and gid


After using smbfs, I switched to cifs after smb kept timing out.
However it is not using the uid option as samba did
With the uid=matt,gid=matt options, it is still root.
I also tried with the noperm option, but that didn't help.
The server is a maxtor share drive, so I really don't have any control over it. here is fstab
Code:
#Samba Shares
#//ALLOFUS/MUSIC		/mnt/music	smbfs	user,ro,auto,username=matt,password=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
#//ALLOFUS/MSD		/mnt/msd	smbfs	user,rw,auto,username=matt,password=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
#//DEBRA-PC/Public	/mnt/mom	smbfs	user,ro,auto,username=matt,password=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
#//ALLOFUS/backupmsd	/mnt/backupmsd	smbfs	user,rw,auto,username=matt,password=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0

#cifs Shares
ALLOFUS:MUSIC		/mnt/music	cifs	user,ro,auto,user=matt,pass=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
ALLOFUS:MSD		/mnt/msd	cifs	user,rw,auto,user=matt,pass=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
DEBRA-PC:Public	/mnt/mom	cifs	user,ro,auto,user=matt,pass=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
ALLOFUS:backupmsd	/mnt/backupmsd	cifs	user,rw,auto,user=matt,pass=linux,uid=matt,gid=matt	0	0
The samba section is commented out, as it is there for reference. Doe anyone know hot to correct this?

Hmmm, perhaps try UID and GID #'s instead?

I tried it. Didn't work. I keep reading stuff if the server supports some Unix extension, it uses it even if uid is specified in options. I don't really understand exactly what this is and can't figure out how to override it.
Thanks for the quick response.

I also tried
Code:
echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled
but it doesn't work. I believe the problems is Unix Extensions. However, being a Maxtor Network Drive, I can' turn it off on the server.
So I need to figure out how to overide Unix Extensions on the clien, debian Lenny.

Disregard that, it isn't working now

I think you ran into a problem with the kernel which will now be fixed with kernel 2.6.22

Ill look into it when it is out.
At least this gives me an incentive to custom build my kernel (Im using Debian Testing)

I have a similar problem in connecting to a Linkstation NAS. I had to change my uid and gid to 100 to match the uid and gid on the NAS. It then would mount with me as the owner of the dir but I am currently unable to chmod the dir or files in the dir.

I tried this with CentOS5, I think kernel 2.6-18. As stated above, kernel 2.6.22 will fix more of the cifs problems.

Ok, Ill wait for it to come into Debian Testing, which will be a while as I don't believe it is even in unstable yet. For the meantime I just use smbfs mounts to write (I don't use samba full time as it times out constantly.
