Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem: Not able to mount windows shares, NTLM authentication error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Mount windows share on Windows 2000 with FC6 running
kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6, upgrade to kernel kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6, NTLM auth
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount Windows Share on Win 2000 server running FC6/kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6
2. upgrade kernel to kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6
3. try to mount same share
Actual results: Mount fail with NTLM authentication error
Expected results: Mount succeds
Additional info: Rebooting into kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 resolves the problem.
Run this command before trying the mount:
echo 1 >/proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI
This should provide extra debug messages in the system log when the
mount fails. Please post them.
I tried booting back into kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 and don't see the issue any more, not sure if some
relevant update came in, but it still does not add up. if I see the issue again I will make sure to set that
cifsFYI option to 1 and open a new bug if needed.
Close the bug, thanks for the help.
