I have a samba share that mounts just fine under the Ubuntu 12.04 host:
root:~# mount -t cifs -o credentials=/var/lib/lxc/vpn/rootfs/etc/samba/desktop.credentials //desktop/Media /media/Media
But when I try to do the same mount in an LXC container, also Ubuntu 12.04, which also has the
cifs-utils package installed, I get a permission error:
root:~# mount -t cifs -o credentials=/etc/samba/desktop.credentials //desktop/Media /media/Media mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Both commands are being run as root. Why would this be different in the container and is there a way I can get this mount to work under the container.
