SAMBA drama, help needed - Solved

Postby Chiefahol2 » 2017-09-27 23:25

Hello,

I mount my smb share like so with fstab:

//192.168.1.30/Directory /home/username/mountpoint cifs credentials=/home/username/.smbcredentials,uid=1001,gid=1001,noexec 0 0

All the mounts directory/file permissions now look like this:

drwxrwxrwx 19 username username 0 Jun 26 2016 .

Except i added 'noexec' to the fstab entry, so shouldn't it be mounting without executable permissions?

Also even though my user definitely DOES have read write and execute permissions in that share, when i try move a file into the share i get this error:

Error while copying.

The folder "Folder" cannot be copied because you do not have permissions to create it in the destination.


Any help solving these strange permission errors would be greatly appreciated.

Solution was to loosen up permissions on the NAS side. Hopefully not too loose, o well! :P
