I have a Windows share mounted on Ubuntu 10.
I've tried mounting it as smbfs & cifs. I can connect & see data on that share when I use either one.
The mount point for Samba is /backup.
If I create a file, say using vi, directly in /backup, it saves just fine.
However, if I try to create a file in /backup using mysqldump or copy a folder using cp, it fails, saying "cannot create regular file...(name of file it is trying to create)...no such file or directory."
What am I doing wrong? How come I can create files on the share with vi, but not anything else? Thank you!
P.S. I am using a user that is "root" at the time of my attempt.
