problem reading CIFS mount
Posted on 2006-05-08
I successfully mounted Windows 2003 to Linux FC-4 (using kernel 188.8.131.52) using CIFS but strangest
thing happened, I could write and delete but I could NOT read!!! It gave me "Permission denied".
So I went back to Windows 2003 server and checked the shared directory permission and security.
I have it set to Full Control for Everyone (basically, everyone can r/w access to it).
I use autofs to mount this CIFS but it doesn't matter, I also try manual mount. Here is my autofs
file "auto.server" :
# This is an automounter map and it has the following format
# key [ -mount-options-separated-by-comma ] location
# Details may be found in the autofs(5) manpage
scratch -fstype=cifs,rw,credentials=/root/.credentials ://w2ksvr/Scratch
I also try
mount.cifs //w2ksvr/Scratch /mnt -o user=xxx,password=xxx
Both were successful but could not read. Is there anything else I need here?
I look at the menuconfig and here is what I have.
<M> MSDOS fs support
<M> VFAT (Windows-95) fs support
(437) Default codepage for FAT
(ascii) Default iocharset for FAT
<M> NTFS file system support
[ ] NTFS debugging support
[*] NTFS write support
Any suggestion is appreciated.
