RE: NTsec permissions issue over inet

	The remote shares are NFS and SIFS volumes only. In the past
the shared volume as //netapp0/sbanville$ has always worked fine for me.
Could you tell which key to look at to verify the SID ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This isn't necessary anymore.

What's with 'sbanville$'?  Where is the '$' coming from?  Clearly
you're not going to be sucessful creating a directory that is essentially
the share name either.  You should check the passwd and group files on
this machine as well.  If this directory is coming from one of those,
that's likely to be the problem.

I hope you mean 'mkpasswd -l -d <domain>'.  The above won't work.
It might be helpful if you attached your passwd and group files or
at least your entry in them.

You don't need 'ntsec' anymore, though there is no harm in it.  As
Igor mentioned, you may find it useful to add 'smbntsec', since you're
using SAMBA shares.  I expect you know this but these settings must be
set *before* the Cygwin DLL is loaded.

You can compare the SID in the passwd file with the one Windows has for
you (in the registry at least).  They should be the same.  If they are,
the SID is fine.

Are these groups across multiple domains?

Access is denied.

You're getting this from trying to access your 3 Windows shares listed
below.  When do you get this?  When you're logged into the machine locally
or when you're logged in remotely?

Ouch!  Are there other conflicts here with Cygwin utilities?
