Angry smbclient fine, smbmount NOT fine


Hi,
I am trying to mount a share on a windows server.

It works fine when I do smbclient //server/share -U username, I getting logged in can walk around look at files and everything

BUT when I try to moun the same share with (in fstab):

//sameserver/sameshare /mnt/localdir smbfs users,noauto,rw,username=user/domain 0 0

The login and mounting and stuff works just fine, but when I try to do a ls in /mnt/localdir I just get "access denied". How weird is that? However it works just fine on my own homedirectory that are located on one of the company windows server? Crazy or am I crazy?

BTW, I recently got access to a new windows share and I had no problem to mount that one! So it feels like the shares that I have a problem to mount are those that has access for 'everyone'. Those shares that I get specific rights for my user work just fine. Do I have to add something to my mount command to be able to mount shares that have the permission ''everyone'?:

//server/share /mnt/localdir smbfs users,noauto,rw,username=user 0 0

You might want to try username 'guest' instead if the share is accessable by everyone.

You could also try writing a shell script and use smbmount instead of fstab...

/usr/bin/smbmount //server/share /mnt/localdir -N


Since the share is accessable by everyone, I presume there is no password protection for it, so that -N option won't ask for a password and just mount that share. If that works you could just stick that command in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local
