I have just built up two Fedora 4 boxes. Samba Ver 3.0.14 comes with them.
I am trying to mount my QNX4 box as a client, just like I do to a Red Hat 9 (Samba 2) and a QNX6
box (also Samba 2). All the smb.conf files are the same - configurations are vurtually
identical. I don’t do anything fancy.
The version of SMBfsys is 1.30I dates Dec 07, 1999.
However, no matter what I do, the commands:
user_smb somebody passwd followed by:
mount -t smd //FEDORA:/192.168.0.15/tmp /fedora/tmp
mount_smb -u somebody //FEDORA:192.168.0.15/tmp /fedora/tmp passwd
result in the message:
mount failed: permission denied
There is no indication as to what part of the mount operation permission was denied, or why. The
mount commands are identical to those used to successfully mount to the Red Hat and QNX6 servers
- of course some numbers/names change.
tmp is a valid share.
somebody is both a valid system and smb user.
smbclient -L 192.168.0.15 -U somebody works fine and shows all the shares.
testparm shows no errors with the smb.conf file.
the smb log shows no error - nor does any other syslog.
My windows boxes, QNX6 and Red Hat box can mount clients with no problem.
I ran tcpdump and it show that the mount is resulting in packets being sent to server, but I
can’t discern anything meaningful from its output.
Is this perhaps a result of having an old SMBfsys with Samba 3? Has anyone managed to get
QNX4.25 working with the recent V3 Samba’s? Any other ideas?
