    Mounting cifs share as user


    I've got the following cifs share listed in my /etc/fstab:

    //stonehenge/scolgan /home/sean/Documents/stonehenge cifs rw,noauto,user,sync,credentials=/home/sean/.creds_stonehenge,uid=sean,gid=users,file_mode=075 5,dir_mode=0755 0 0

    I can mount this share as root no problem. When trying to mount it as a user (as the 'user' option should allow), I get the following error:

    sean@Iago:~> mount /home/sean/Documents/stonehenge/
    mount error 1 = Operation not permitted
    Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

    Anyone have thoughts on this?

    The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?

    Error 1 is a permissions or invocation error. I'm going to guess permissions since root works OK. What are the permissions and ownership on "/home/sean/.creds_stonehenge"?

    Let us know how you get on

    the permissions for the credentials file is:

    sean@Iago:~> ls -l .creds_stonehenge
    -rw-r--r-- 1 sean users 35 2006-01-25 12:55 .creds_stonehenge

    that's everyone with read and the current user (me) with rw. Not sure how this could be affecting it.

    Besides, I get the same error when the user and pass are included directly in fstab. Like this:

    //stonehenge/scolgan /home/sean/Documents/stonehenge cifs rw,noauto,user,sync,user=scolgan,password=****,uid =sean,gid=users,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755 0 0

    any other thoughts?

    Hi!
    I had the same problem...This worked for me:

    As root: chmod +s /sbin/mount.cifs

    EDIT: Oops! only a year to late.... well.. 2006, 2007... the years pass so quick...
