/etc/fstab I have multiple lines similar to
//myserver/myshare /media/Server/myshare cifs credentials=/home/myuser/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
However I can't access all the shares. Investigating the problem I found that the folders where the shares are mounted have weird ownerships. Most of them are owned by the user root and the group root. One of them is owned by my user but then there are strange ones. One has
speech-dispatcher as the owner and
utempter as the group. Then there's one that's owned by the group
1005 and one that's owned by
These shares are served from a Ubuntu server and I believe these groups and owners come from there. The ones that I said have
root:root owner are currently disconnected from the server. The one that is owned by me is a personal home folder share. Could it be that the server tells my machine the ids of the shares and because they don't map one to one on my machine and the server they are seen as these strange groups and users? And since my computer doesn't have a group with id 1005 it shows as just the number in
How do I fix this? I want all the mounts to be owned by my own user.
I tried dismounting the shares and changing the share folders' ownership with
chown. This worked partly: Now I can access the share that had
root:1005 owner, but the ones with a group or user id which is found locally too don't work.
