The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5176
mount.cifs only sees toplevel directory, even after cd to a subdirectory
Last modified: 2008-09-04 13:26:10 UTC
Mounting a filesystem using "mount -t cifs..." "ls" shows the toplevel directory ok. "cd" works - and "pwd" shows I am in the subdir. But "ls" only shows the toplevel again. In fact, if one of the dirs is "X" I can do "cd X; cd X; cd X" and "pwd" shows "X/X/X". I cannot see the files in any subdirectory.
BUT smbclient works fine and I can change directories and see files. smbclient reports "Domain=[MAIL] OS=[Windows Server 2003 3790 Service Pack 1] Server=[Windows Server 2003 5.2]".
The problem has been the same for several versions of mount.cifs (versions supplied with Fedora Core 6 and 8, and also with Samba 3.0.28)
Let us know if this (bug fix for bug 4066) does not fix this)
