    Default Permissions needed for mounted WinServer2003 folder

    Hi all,

    I have a WinServer2003 as a file server, I have mounted three of the folders that are served onto my Opensuse 11 using Samba/cifs/fstab configuring.

    All is fine when opening existing files that are in the folders. The problem is when I create/save a new word document/file right in the mounted folder, then I don't have permission to edit it, or continue writing in it.

    What can I do to change so I can save new doc files right in the mounted folder?

    Thanks

    I take it that these are mounted at boot with entries in fstab? What is the line in fstab that creates the mount where you tried to create/save the .doc file.?

    Hi Swerdna,

    The fstab line is:

    //192.168.1.144/Documents /home/heeter/serverdocs cifs username=heeter,password=password,_netdev,iud=heeter,gid=users 0 0

    I changed the password for here,

    I used your Samba and your Permanent Mounting guides on your website. Really easy to understand and use.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Change iud to uid. Se if it helps.
    uid stands for "user identification number"
    iud stands for "it's utterly disconnected"

    lol.... not the first thing I thought of. Having a family of medical
    people gives you an odd background. Same idea though... something to
    prevent a connection. Google has more.

    Good luck.

    Hi Swerdna,

    I tried changing it, so far it is doing the same thing. Looks Like Openoffice does not like the mounted setup I have. When I "File-> Save as...." an openoffice document, it locks up.

    Seems to be it is when I am dealing with Openoffice and the mounted folders, which for this workstation, it is nearly 100% of the workload.

    I was told to put a Windows machine here if I don't get this situation resolved in the next day or so.

    Please Help.

    Thanks

    Do other applications have issues like this? Maybe OO.o is trying to
    open in a directory that is mapped across and is slow. Anything slow
    from the command line?

    Good luck.

    Sorry, still fairly new to OpenSuse,

    I seem to isolate it down to OpenOffice and the WinServer2003 Mounted folder.

    The other applications seems to be interacting with the other mounted folders with no issue.

    I don't not know how to test through command line.

    OK I have a share on a windows xp box. I mount it just like above. I open Openoffice writer. I write a tew words, nothig fancy. I do File --> Save as, and I select word (.doc extension) as the type. I get a warning about "this document may contain formatting ....... do you want to save it anyway?". I answer "Yes" to save in microsoft word97/2000/xp format (rather than Openoffice format).

    That works
    And I can reopen it by clicking on it and change the text and save it in microsoft word97/2000/xp format again OK.
    I must be doing slightly different from you.

    So can you please give me the exact steps I must make to recreate your error?
