cifs - "READ ERRORS"


Hi!

I mounted a Windows Folder with Samba/CIFS on my Fedora 5 machine.
Here is the entry of the fstab

Code:
//192.168.55.123/share   /share   cifs   uid=502,gid=502,username=xxx,password=xxx,rw,auto 0 0
The directory on the windows machine is empty.

Then I created a file in the /share directory on Fedora with some random content:

Code:
$ vi test

Code:
Hello
123
~
~
~
When I change to the windows machine and open the file with the editor I can read it.

But when I want to open the file again with vi, I'm getting this error:

Code:
~
~
~
~
~
~
~
~
"test" [READ ERRORS] 0L, 0C
Some ideas:

The /share directory before I mount it:

Code:
drwxrwxrwx   1 snoopy snoopy     4096 14. Jun 10:18 share
and after I mounted it:

Code:
drwxrwxrwx   1 snoopy snoopy     0 14. Jun 10:18 share
--> The size is different. Why?

Here is an ls -la in the /share directory:

Code:
drwxrwxrwx  1 snoopy snoopy    0 14. Jun 11:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 27 root       root       4096 14. Jun 11:31 ..
-rw-rw-r--  1 snoopy snoopy   10 14. Jun 11:32 test
Any ideas because I'm not able to open the created file again in order to read or change it?

Thanks a lot!!

Maybe I have to put the question in a different way.

Is it possible to create AND change files on a cifs mounted Windows Samba Network folder?

Is my fstab entry ok?

Thanks!!
