Description Gleb Popov 2018-09-24 09:20:58 UTC
When I run mount_smbfs -I 172.16.34.25 //user@host/Cloud /mnt it prompts me to enter a password and then successfully mounts the share. However, putting [host:user] password=123123 into /etc/nsmb.conf and then running mount_smbfs -N -I 172.16.34.25 //user@host/Cloud /mnt doesn't work due to failing authentication. I've sniffed packets and it turned out that mount_smbfs sends different hashes used to authenticate. After a bit of googling I found advice to write all SMB resource names in uppercase and it worked. After changing nsmb.conf contents to [HOST:USER] password=123123 the command with -N finally worked out. Is it a bug, or I'm just misundestanding something?

/etc/nsmb.conf actually mentions the requirement, nsmb.conf(5) doesn't though: ... # SMB library uses next forms of section names (please note that the section # name should be in upper case when it refers to server, user or share): ...

(In reply to Yuri Pankov from comment #1) Even if man page had mentioned this behavior, I still think it is not enough visible for a user. Can we just error out in mount_smbfs when config file has lowercase letters in section names?

I'm waiting for a review on this for more than month. Can anyone take a look at this trivial change?
