    Samba question


    Samba question

    I need to use samba client on my SUSE 10.1 (x86_64) workstation to mount cifs shares of a Linux NAS Server. I'm currently using samba 3.2.4

    I can do a cifs mount using the my windows domain user account which the server has my SID matched to my UNIX ID so that files created by NFS show the same owner in CIFS

    I have the following entry in /etc/fstab
    //172.24.189.154/fs1 /s1 cifs sec=krb5,user=quser1,domain=xxxx.xxx.com,noauto,us er 0 0

    What i'm trying to understand what is normal expectations/limitations are at this point

    From the cifs mount all files/folders show the user I specified in the cifs mount "quser1" as the owner with full unix permissions however from the NFS mount below the correct unix permissions/owner are displayed.

    cifs mount
    ls -al
    total 17353
    drwxrwxrwx 1 quser1 users 0 Mar 19 2009 .
    drwxr-xr-x 45 root root 1112 Mar 18 11:13 ..
    -rwxrwSrwt 1 quser1 users 2530131 Mar 16 14:32 _nasbkup.01.tar.gz

    drwxr-xr-x 2 32768 users 1024 Mar 10 11:33 word

    If appears for the cifs mount the only effective permissions are cifs acl

    Is this normal for a cifs mount to show the user that did the cifs mount or is there a way to get the cifs mount to display the correct owner and unix permsions bits that match cifs acl?

    Is a cifs mount expected to be able fully support the full functionality of windows? or Is there any limitations when mounting cifs shares with samba?

    Thanks
