mount.cifs uid,gid parameters no longer recognize username, only numeric id
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:42:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon calling mount.cifs, uid=<username>,gid=<username> no longer works, and filesystem is mounted as owned by root.
Unmounting and remounting with mount.cifs uid=<user_numeric_id>, gid=<user_numeric_id> works, however
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to mount a filesystem with username as parameters to uid and gid
filesystem is mounted as owned by root
filesystem is mounted with username as owner
uid=username,gid=username has worked for some time (in previous fedora releases for quite some time), so something seems to broken here in the current version.
