CIFS PROBLEM WITH WINDOWS 2003 SMALLBUSINESS
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:36:04 EDT
Description of problem:
A share mounted using the CIFS mounts correctly. Files can be viewed or listed
but cannot read, open 0r copy files. Kernel dmesg log reports only:
"CIFS VFS: Send error in read = -13"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ uname -r
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount.cifs //192.168.XXX.XX/share /win2003server -o
2. cd /win2003server
3. cp -dpR filename.txt /z/ -v
$ cp filename.txt
cp: two filename.txt: Permission denied
$ cp filename.txt

Samba 3.0.23b. did not resolve this problem. Note in fedora core 3 & 4 the above
CIFS works pretty well. This problem is also repeated not only in fedora core 5
but also in fedora core 6 zod. it is a problem with the WINDOWS 2003
SMALLBUSINES SERVER. With other windows operating systems it works perfectly.
Samba provides only the user space mount helper, if mount is fine, then the bug
must be in the CIFS Kernel module (as the CIFS VFS log line seem to imply).
Reassigning bug to kernel.
Try a newer kernel. 2.6.19-1.2288.2.1 should be out any minute now.
l'm always afraid to modify kernel because the last time l applied a patch it
took me 5hrs to restore the whole system. So l took the other way round by
modifying the windows 2003 server registry to allow SMB BLOCK in the access
control. for now it works fine but not a good idea for security reasons. Hope
this will be resolved with fedora core 7.
Is this still an issue on F7 or F8?
No in Fedora 7 it is completely possible to do mounts with CIFS without
problems. I haven't tried Fedora 8 yet.
Good. I'll close this as CURRENTRELEASE then. Please reopen if you find it to
still be an issue.
