Samba Mount to Large Corporate Network
Sorry for yet another Samba questions but..
I'm attempting to mount a Win-doze network shared folder on a large corporate network.
I can use:
$ smbmount //server/folder /mnt/directory -o workgroup=mydomainhere, username=myusernamehere
$ password: xxxxxxx
This will give me access to the shared folder. So far so good.
When I Cd into any folder in the share, it is empty. I'm curious if this has to do with how the security is layed out on the server. Anyone on the network can access the share but then each folder in it can only be accessed if you are a member of that group (usually broken down by department/project).
I tried to mount directly to the folder I need but Linux returns that this is not a share.
Anyone have any ideas? I tried our IT people here but I'm afraid we are completely a windows shop. (IT guy actually said to me, oh you use linux, how's that going, I want to start experimenting with that).
