I'm trying to mount a share on my fileserver to an other server
For both servers i use CentOS 5.3
On the fileserver samba is enabled, with the following in smb.conf:
comment = fileserver
path = /fileserver
public = no
writable = yes
Now, when i try to mount the share to my other server, i get an read-only error:
[root@margomsrv02 mnt]# mount -t cifs //ip.address/fileserver /mnt/fileserver -o username=my.user,password=my.passwd
mount: block device //ip.address/fileserver is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: cannot mount block device //ip.address/fileserver read-only
on both servers the folders are chmod 777
the strange thing is, it worked a few days ago, but then i restored my VMWare image to the beginning (new installation) and now i keep getting this error
i have seen that a lot of people have this kind a problem, but have never seen an solution, and its making me crazy...
anyone that can tell me what the problem may be?
