[FC2] Mounting a Share on a Windows 2003 DC



Whenever You mount a Share on a Windows 2003 Domain Controller, one has been mounted before
(from FC1 or RH90), You will notice the following behavior:


The mount

smbmount //server.domain/share ./point -o username=name,rw
(or mount -t smbfs)

works without error, even the log file is empty. But you can not browse or cd into the directory.
This will look something like:


--------------------------------
smbmount //w2k3.domain.at/Software /home/name/w2k3/Software -o codepage=cp850,iocharset=utf8,username=USER,workgroup=DOMAIN,rw;


[root fc2wkst name]# ls -l /home/name/w2k3/
total 4
drwxrwxr-x  2 hartwig hartwig 4096 May 26 10:35 Hartwig
?---------  ? ?       ?          ?            ? Software
[root fc2wkst name]# ls -l /home/name/w2k3/Software
ls: /home/name/w2k3/Software: Permission denied
---------------------------------

The "Software"-entry above will be blinking white on red, like a broken link.
But the smbclient does work


[name fc2wkst name]$ smbclient //w2k3/Software -U USER
Password:
Domain=[DOMAIN] OS=[Windows Server 2003 3790] Server=[Windows Server 2003 5.2]
smb: \>


The problem here is actually the Windows 2003 Domain Controller.
We know that the mandatory packet signing has to be disabled by Policy.
Since FC2 one will have to disable both Policies in

Domain Controller Security Policy -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options:
Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)
Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (if client agrees)



This Policies are undefined by Default on all non Domain Controller W2003 Server!


P.S.: This Procedure doesn't make "mount -t cifs" work (Error=-13).

Sorry if this has been posted before...

              If it's a good idea go ahead and do it.
    It's much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.
