I have a new Buffalo Linkstation Pro NAS attached to my router. Only root has full access to it. It's mounted in fstab and I've tried lots of variations, but it's always only root that can chmod any files on the mounted NAS. All other users get 'Operation not permitted'
I've tried mounting it as smbfs and cifs. I've tried various options including things like uid=1000, file_mode=0777, rw, etc. I've found comments on all of these things on various forums, but I can't get any combination to work. I also found some suggestions about the mount point needing to be owned by the ordinary user (not root), so I tried chown USER_ID /mnt/linkstation to no avail.
Here's my current fstab entry:
//linkstation/share /mnt/linkstation smbfs users,guest,rw,uid=1000,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=cp850,cp850 0 0
I've only been using Linux for a year or so, so I'm no expert and maybe I'm missing something obvious. Can anyone give me some pointers pls?
My final aim is to use a cron job to synchronise local directories with the NAS via Unison. I'm running SUSE 10.1 kernel 126.96.36.199-0.25-default x86_64
