mounting samba share for a user
I have a file server that runs Samba. works like a charm. it has user directories plus shares I have created.
what I want to do is mount my home directory share on my other linux machine.
lets create a little map to clear things up:
fileserver name: lumafs01
linuxmachine name: redhatserver
I have a account on the file server in samba with user name of luma
on redhatserver I have a user called luma with same password as luma on lumafs01
in windows this works great. (on windows I have a user luma wiht same password as well) I can acess my home directory, write to it, all works well
on redhatserver though here is what I do and here is what happens:
mount -t smbfs //lumafs01/luma /home-on-lumafs01 -o username=luma,password=fakepassword123
/home/luma/home-on-lumafs01 belongs to luma.
after I run the above command home-on-lumafs01 becomes root and if I go in that folder I can't create folders etc, can only read
what am I doing wrong?
thank you much
mount -t smbfs -o username=luma,password=fakepassword123 //lumafs01/luma /home-on-lumafs01
Or, even better,
export the filesystem using NFS on the server, and mount it that way on the client.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
