Hi there, i'm fairly new to linux so please excuse me if this question seems obvious.

I'm trying to mount a NAS in RedHatEL4 as a restricted user. I want to use this mounted storage to store my backups, created with amanda.
The amandabackup user (uid=667,gid=6) has been created during the install of amanda. Amanda works fine with local folders.

I have included the following line in my fstab file so any user can mount:

// /mnt/amanda cifs credentials=/var/lib/amanda/.credentials,user,noauto,suid,uid=667,gid=6,rw 0 0

this is what i get when i 'su - amandabackup'

-sh-3.00$ ls -l
total 4
drwxrwxrwx 2 amandabackup disk 4096 Feb 8 10:45 amanda
-sh-3.00$ mount /mnt/amanda/
-sh-3.00$ ls -l
total 0
drwxrwx--- 2 64439 11578 0 Feb 8 10:25 amanda
-sh-3.00$ cd amanda/
-sh: cd: amanda/: Permission denied

The amandabackup user is owner of the /mnt/amanda folder; but if i mount, the uid and gid are changed and i get a permission denied. wacko.gif

I'm thinking that the options in the fstab file are completely wrong. Anyone have any experience with this?
