Samba mounts share under wrong username
OK Solved! by making the uid's for the users the same.
Is there a workaround for this? See below & thanks!
Samba is mounting a share I have on a Linux box consistently under the wrong user. My shares are mounted on startup via smbfstab in SuSE 10.2, but it happens when I'm manually mounting them as well.
One of the shares adds fine, but this one somehow always defaults to user 1003.
I have tried adding uid=xxxx; didn't work, neither in smbfstab as manually.
Tried deleting the user account on the server that the share is on, and to which it's falling back but that didn't work.
When I delete that user, ls -l gives the uid=1003 only; the username is now gone.
Thus it seems to be happening on the client side, or is there some user id transferred from that server?
Reviewed all permissions, inherit ACLS=on, reviewed all ownerships and passwords and even reset them.
Why would this happen?
I'm stuck now as I can't write to that share due to missing user rights.
Thanks in advance,
