I'm not getting any response on the cifs linux client mailing list,
and I see one other person had the same problem as I see
in late Feb, with no response.
The correct path was working in an earlier RH kernel, but has been
I use a typical:
mount -t cifs //winserver/Users /home/mnt/ --verbose -o
The mount always suceeds, but I see the user's actual folder in
something like: /home/mnt/donald/donald/donald rather than
in expected /home/mnt/donald
This is wonky for all user directories. ls of /home/mnt/<username> shows
a list of all user directories again.
I can also see all user names from ls of /home/mnt/<usernameA>/<usernameB>
So I can get to my home dir on the Windows box by:
For now I've just hacked the apache conf so it works, but I'm
a little concerned that a future kernel update will unexpectedly
fix this and then the apache reference to the extra long path
will be bogus.
The target Windows machine is part of a DFS set up, but I'm
connecting directly to one of the two nodes of that, which
worked fine before.
The kernel I'm using is: 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5
I find it hard to believe this is a rare problem.
