I have Ubuntu 16.04 running a samba server and another 16.04 box that mounts it without issue using the fstab line
//192.168.0.102/share /mnt/raid cifs user=myuser,pass=mypass. When I mount the share, the files all show the proper user/group and when copying files to the share, the mode (ie 0644) is preserved.
With a different machine running Ubuntu 17.10, the same fstab line causes the mount to list everything on the share as user/group root:root instead of myuser:myuser. I can force the user/group to be correct by adding
uid=1000,gid=1000 to the fstab line but when copying files to the share, the permissions are no longer preserved (they all show up as 0755).
Any ideas on what has changed that might be causing this issue and how I can fix it would be appreciated. This samba share has worked correctly for me across multiple versions of Linux so I'm fairly certain the issue is on the new Ubuntu 17.10 side but I not certain if it's a change in the security policies or something in the cifs library itself.
