CIFS Shares mount problem


Hello, i am experiencing problems when trying to access a Windows 2003 CIFS Share Volume.

First the facts, i am using the latest, compiled from source Kernel:

Code:
Linux raziel 2.6.21.3 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 5 11:48:47 CDT 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
on my Debian Laptop, with cifs support included as modules:

Code:
dfuentes@raziel:~$ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
cifs                  207676  1
My command for mounting:

Code:
mount -t cifs //10.100.0.3/general /opt/mailmr -o user=XXXXXXXXXX,pass=XXXXXXXX,uid=dfuentes,gid=dfuentes,domain=XXXXXXXX,rw

And i am indeed able to mount the share, and i can get a root directory listing, but i am not able to navigate the directories; i do a "cd directory" and after doing a "ls" i get the exact same listing as in the root.

Does anybody know how to fix this? Do i need a different or patched cifs module? Help will be appreciated.

I can't say for sure, but my CIFS mount entry in /etc/fstab has "owner" as one of the parameters. That may be it.

Well, i added the "owner" parameter to my mount command, but the result is exactly the same; perhaps its something to do with the Windows Sharing parameters?

Any ideas?

You may be right. I'd make sure your Windows folders have the correct read/write access permissions set. Other than that I have no idea.
