Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-12-06 05:36:35 EST
The smbfs kernel module do not honor uid, gid, file_mode and dir_mode supplied
by user during mount.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Comment 6 Steve Dickson 2007-03-20 11:22:51 EDT
Taking a closer look it appear RHEL3 does not have 
problem, for a couple of reasons. One, this is a patch
to the UNIX capabilities code and that capability 
does not exist in the RHEL3 version. 

Secondly, it appears the uid, gid and mode are 
(at least initially) *always* set to the uid, gid
and mode that are passed down from the mount. 
So I don't see how they are being ignored.
