Description Eric R. Meyers 2005-07-07 15:43:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
All of the smbclient commands appear to be working except for change directory (cd).

Workaround is to smbmount the share, inorder to get down where you want to go.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load FC4 standard
2. Connect Windows 95/98 with networking
3. Attempt to change directory in an smbclient session

Actual Results:  [ermeyers@ermsrv01 ~]$ smbclient //ermw9502/C
smb: \> cd windows
cd \windows\: ERRDOS - ERRbadfunc (Invalid function.)
smb: \> quit

Expected Results:  [ermeyers@ermsrv01 ~]$ smbclient //ermw9502/C
smb: \> cd windows
smb: \windows\> quit

Additional info:

I've have used smbclient for many years, so I think I know when it isn't working.

Same problem here.  I tried to copy files to an SMB share on a Windows 98 system
using a script that does this:

smbclient //server/share -N -c "cd somedir; put foo"

This used to work in Red Hat Linux (not sure what release), but fails in Fedora
Core 4 with the same "ERRDOS - ERRbadfunc (Invalid function.)" message Eric
Myers describes as resulting from interactive use.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

fixed in FC6
