/sbin/mount.ncp swallows or replaces numerous mount options
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:54 EDT
It appears that /sbin/mount.ncp was designed to provide some simple
defaults for ncpmount command, but it does not respect the numerous options
available for ncpmount. A line such as this in /etc/fstab
K2 /mnt/k2/var ncp
pass,server=K2,user=SERVICE_K2,multiple 0 0
will result in an ncpmount command that has a different mode, the default
owner, no password, different file modes, no multiple option, no volume.
There are *lots* more options that would also be omitted from the ncpmount
I found it *far* more useful to simply replace /sbin/mount.ncp with a
symlink to /usr/bin/ncpmount. It now does what I asked it to do.
Thanks for listening,
Hm, last time I checked, symlinking didn't work
properly. Apparently it does now. Fixed in 188.8.131.52-6.
