http://unix.stackexchange.com – Following this guide I was able to get my Samba share to mount on my Ubuntu 12.04 system. I can navigate the folders just fine. However I cannot create a directory nor create a file. I get the following error: mkdir: cannot create directory `ServerBackups': Permission denied Looking at the directory permissions, I see drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 Aug 14 22:34 stora I have tried to change that to root:sambashare with no errors with sudo chown :sambashare stora/, however when I confirm it completed, it is back to root:root. This is what I added to my /etc/fstab: \\10.0.1.20\mylibrary (HowTos)
