Samba mount


Ok if someone has any idea what to do about this:

I try to mount smb share as user and i get an error messg:
smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts (500,500)
smbmnt failed: 1

than i chmod 4775 smbmount

and get this msg:

libsmb based programs must *NOT* be setuid root.
1893: Connection to server failed
SMB connection failed


any idea ???

Regards, PcHammer

well, reading the error message it says "libsmb based programs must *NOT* be setuid root." so that means that the program you're running is set suid root.

chmod -s /path/to/smbmount

should do it.

That's ok I found what the user must do.

I smbmount there is a safety switch, it checks if smbmount is suidroot and it prevents from working, so smbmount must NOT be suid root. OK know how would a user map a samba share on linux Workstation ??

There is a way smbmount must not be suid root and smbmnt file must BE chmod 4775.

Ok than u need to chmod 4775 also smbumount (so that user can umount share)

I hope this solves someones problem.

unpriveledged users can not normally mount un defuned file systems, it is a potentially very dangerous thing. you would normally have an entrry for all allowable mounts (partitions, cd-rom, nfs, samba) in your /etc/fstab file and then users can mount them just fine.

su -c "smbmount //boxname/share /mnt/sharename" will do the trick.

u can add options to it like putting a username and password behind the -o option.
man smbmount
