can mount WinXP share but not Win7 share in fstab


this has happened in different distros, so far i have tried slack, arch, and mint

at work i have an xp box with a shared folder i created. on my linux box i setup fstab as follows
Code:
//winxp/temp$   /home/user/temp      cifs    rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,credentials=/home/user/.creds   0  0
this gets mounted correctly and i can read/write the shared folder

at home i have a win7 box that i create a share on and use the exact same code in fstab, but it wont mount the share. i get something like permission denied or access denied

is there a difference in how winxp and win7 share folders? my usernames on the linux boxes match those of my windows boxes at each location. i have given my win accounts full access and control over the win shares.

am i missing something in linux? i wouldnt think so as it works with xp but not 7

Nope - Vista (and now Win2k08 and Win7) changed the rules big time.

SUGGESTION: Google for "samba windows 7"

ok made some changes to the lanmanworkstation settings in the win7 registry, specifically this
HKLM\System\CCS\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters
DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0

not sure if it did anything though, still have the same problem with the fstab mounts

however i can do this
Code:
mount -t cifs //win7/temp$ /home/user/temp -o user=username
and it mounts fine but i dont have r/w access to it

any thoughts?

Hi -

Good stuff here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/75...ws-samba-issue

http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Windows7
<= it sounds like you might already have been here

and here:
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=89782

I think you're on the right track, and I'd continue to focus mostly (but, of course, not *exclusively*) on the Windows 7 side of the equation.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

resolved

thanks for the links, yeah been to the first two, but that last one helped. i dug a little deeper in the win7 security settings, advanced settings, effective permissions. it had my name already there, but i added it again and checked everything and changed my fstab to
Code:
//winxp/temp$   /home/user/temp   smbfs  rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,file_mode=0700,dir_mode=0700,credentials=/home/user/.creds        0  0
now all my shares mount and i have r/w access to them. not sure what actually fixed it, but im sure it all helped.

thanks! i'm cured!! LOL

spoke too soon, its weird, i can mount it using the mount -t command like above but not with the fstab settings. is there a way to put those mount commands in a script file that runs when i log in?

What have you put in the fstab settings? You'll need the same options that you are passing on the command line.

Maybe paste the fstab here, along with the command line you are using.
