I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu (several versions) and I want to discover which version of Samba/CIFS it is using to mount drives. I have installed nothing since the OS installation (except gksu and cifs-utils) and I have not yet run updates. It is mounting a couple of CIFS shares via fstab as expected. How do I discover what version the OS is using to establish these mounts?
For those interested, the problem/bug is as follows.
Files and folders which include a : or a ? in their titles are not accessed from certain versions of Ubuntu. The server is correctly serving the files because up until at least Ubu 12.04.5 the files/folders were accessible. By 14.04.5 any file or folder with these characters (and perhaps others considered dangerous by Windows) act thus: folders display and show contents = 0 but cannot be accessed; files display but throw an error when clicked upon. I am seeking the exact point of breakage.
