Mounting issues over samba share

By Robin | september 10, 2009

Today installed a new centos server and samba does it again (failure sharing external drives), ok the drives are windowsdrives vfat (fat32) and ntfs (ntfs-3g).

So after struggling a while installed swat when i suddenly see the shares on the other windows-lan-computers… But we can not write to the disks we have to mount them without any restrictions:

# mount -o  auto,users,umask=000,dmask=000,fmask=000,uid=65534,gid=65534 /dev/youwanttomount /mnt/directory

Also learned how to force busy drives 🙂  # umount -l
