I am trying to mount a ntfs partition via cifs in /etc/fstab. I have set umask=000 but still not getting 777 permissions on the mounted drive. I really need to get this figured out asap. I have been seaching for the past hour without much luck.
Below is my fstab entry. Anyhelp would be great thanks.
//172.21.0.11/IMPORTS /i/hjs/to cifs credentials=/i/.wincred,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,umask=000 0 0
Here is the reported permissions on the mountpoint
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 16384 May 4 11:00 to
1- Create an empty folder, as /home/local_user/folderserver
2- Chown the local_user to the folder if the folder is outside his home. (same with the local_user group)
3 Edit (as root) /etc/fstab and append:
//ip_Server/folder_in_server /home/local_user/folderserver cifs username=remote_user,password=remote_user_password,rw,users,uid=local_user,gid=local_user_group 0 0
//192.168.1.106/DATA_SHARED /home/fernando/shared cifs username=theuser,password=thepassword,rw,users,uid=fernando,gid=users 0 0
1- folder in server must have read and write access to the remote_user.
2- Remote_user and remote_user_password is the user and password to get into remote share folder.
3- local_user (group and password) is the local user.
