reading cifs share fails with permission denied
I'm trying to setup a samba server to share data among clients via cifs. As a test, I mounted the samba share on the same machine and tried to access the contents of the directory. The mount command was:
mount -t cifs -o username=sthomaso,workgroup=WORKGROUP //server/scratch /mnt/server/scratch
...which worked fine after entering the password. Although I can "cd /mnt/server/scratch", when I try to list the contents of the directory with "ls", I get error "ls: reading directory .: Permission denied".
On the server, my /etc/samba/smb.conf is:
security = user
workgroup = WORKGROUP
writeable = yes
path = /var/scratch
valid users = @feausers
writeable = yes
User "sthomaso" was added to tdbsam with command:
pdbedit -a -u sthomaso
User "sthomaso" is in group "feausers", verified with the "groups sthomaso" command.
"/bin/ls -lF /var | grep scratch" shows:
drwxrwx--T. 2 root feausers 4096 Jun 14 14:40 scratch/
/var/log/samba/log.smbd contains validation of a successful connection in line:
<snip> connect to service scratch initially as user sthomaso (uid=500, gid=501) (pid 99999)
So it looks like I am successfully mounting the share, but why can't I read the directory and access the files?
Forgot to mention...this is RHEL 6.1
FYI, I got some help from Red Hat...the problem was SELinux restricting permissions. I don't need the control offered by SELinux, so I just disabled it by editing /etc/selinux/config and restarting.
