Description Tsuyoshi Nagata 2006-03-16 20:25:11 UTC

the smbmount(8) did not say latest option:



   Normaly, default smbmount on latest Linux has 2G file size limit,
   to solve this problem, administrator must use smbmount with
   '-o lfs' option,

   I believe using mount.cifs is right way on latest Linux.
   But one of the implementation smb_clients tools take this
   lazy option.
   I saw tha man page of smbmount(8), this is not documented.
