The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2234
Linux 2.6 does not like the "users" mount parameter with cifs
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:42:54 UTC
If you use the mount.cifs program and Linux 2.6 and further have the "users"
option in your /etc/fstab line describing the cifs mount point the kernel will
complain about the option, which it does not know. My example line from fstab
looks like this:
//mrmucke/storage /mnt/storage cifs noauto,users,guest 0 0
Created attachment 883 [details]
Will filter out the "users" option so Linux 2.6 won't complain.
This patch will fix the kernel complaints as described in the original bug
description. As I could only test this with Linux 2.6 I don't know if this
behaviour is true for other releases of Linux.
reassigning to correct project
Ok - checked in - let me know if that addresses it.
should be fixed in 2.6.10
