    ok hunted high and low and i'm stuck on getting the permissions right. i'm mounting a samba share housed on buffalo nas. i keep getting these permissions on all the directories, even down a level for the share level:

    drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 2008-02-15 08:17 postgres

    and here is the fstab line:

    //hs-dhtgl9dc/share /mnt/smb-mnt-01/ smbfs defaults,rw,umask=0000 0 0

    experimented with all sorts of options and still can't get to w's for the other 2 slots that are dashes above. and the result is that through pgadmin i can't create a new table space. i keep getting an error saying it can't set permissions on /mnt/smb-mnt-01/postgres.

    can you help? should i being mounting nas in fstab? (yes i have ntfs-3g installed; and best i can tell the share is set up as read/write in the buffalo set up screens).

    buffalo tech support indicated the permissions in their samba setup don't always propagate correctly so i am going a different route. may just build out a storage server custom.

    I'm having a similiar problem,
    i am trying to mount an smbfs from an NTFS harddrive on a seperate pc so that all users in the group can have rw on it.
    The /etc/fstab has:
    //opserv/E  /mnt/opserve  smbfs  users,noauto,umask=0022
    but only root has rw rights.
    I tried :
     chmod g+w /mnt/opserve
    but result was:
