Description Zaki 2004-11-12 05:58:11 UTC
The past 2 weeks I've been trying to figure out what was wrong with my samba.
Jerome Tygate also posted in this months samba mailing list.

I did on a linux client:
smbmount //DORIYAKI/Audio_Visual /home/hotplainrice/smb4k/DORIYAKI/Audio_Visual/
-o
username=hotplainrice,password=whatever,uid=hotplainrice,gid=users,workgroup=DORAEMON

Then I proceded to the mount point and tried some commands. 

hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ touch ehy
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ rm ehy
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ mkdir temp
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ touch temp/ehy
touch: cannot touch `temp/ehy': Permission denied
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ rmdir temp
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$

So thinking its a permission problem, I did:

hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$ ls -l | grep temp
drwxr-xr-x  1 9000 9000         0 2004-11-11 07:36 temp
hotplainrice@1[Audio_Visual]$

On the samba server, smb.conf:
Code:
[global]
workgroup = DORAEMON
netbios name = DORIYAKI
security = user

....

[Audio_Visual]
comment = HBO sucks!
path = /smb/shares/movies
read only = no
guest ok = Yes 

It worked fine in Windows.
After a few trial and error, nothing came up until I read the logs. Bill had the
same problem and posted on samba mailing list June 2004. He states the problem
and workaround.

for smbfs issues, you'll need to talk to the smbfs 
kernel module maintainer.  Or you can try the cifs file 
system support in the Linux 2.6 kernel.
