Re: ssh: issue with file permissions on Samba network shares

If that doesn't work (after the chmod try an ls -l to verify the mod)
then it could be that your home directory is being shared by Samba and
Samba is not configured properly (i.e. being part of the domain) such
that it carries all of the users credentials. If that be the case then
you'll never get the chmod to actually work. IIRC (it's been a few
clients ago) if the Samba server is pretty bare then it's only using an
smbpasswd file. Such a file does not have enough structure to carry all
the information about Windows users credentials. Samba recommends
configuring stuff to be part of the domain and to use a TDB (which it
calls a Trivial Database) or an LDAP style configuration so that the
Samba server is servicing all of the SMB protocol properly (Forgive any
of my terminology errors). IOW if your home directory share were on a
Windows server I bet everything would be working but since it's probably
on a Linux system and being shared with Samba it might be that you don't
have it fully configured.
Permissions 0644 for '/home/xxxxxxx/.ssh/id_rsa' are too open.
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
At that previous client I could not get the admin to update the Samba
configuration. My workaround (hazy) was to do the ssh but somehow to
specify that my ~/.ssh was local, temporarily - i.e. for the ssh only.
IIRC it wasn't ideal but it sorta worked.
