Description of problem:
/usr/bin/smbmount //data-server/juraj mountpoint -o username=juraj,password=mypassword,uid=500
this command mounts the desired samba share as expected, but the uid is the uid of user "juraj" on the server, NOT user with id 500 (as I stated in the command line).
This command works as expected when I do it in RedHat Linux 9, but both fc2 and fc3 use the uid of the user on the server (and not that specified on the command line). It should work as in rh9 according to manpage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc2 and fc3 versions of samba are both affected
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description, server is samba 3.0 all the time, when i use smbmount on redhat 9, it works, it does not work as documented on fedora core 2 and 3
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
