I'm using version 126.96.36.199 of Windows SourceTree running under Win7. The destination directory is a SAMBA file share from an Oracle Unbreakable Linix (RHEL 6) server which is empty and to which I have R/W access.
I tried mapping a drive letter to the share with the same result. I can clone to Windows-based file shares with no problem. The SAMBA config for the directory is as follows
comment = R/W HTML/PHP
path = /var/www/apps/cw-design
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = <ACTIVE DIRECTORY GROUP OF WHICH I AM A MEMBER>
#force group = apache
force group = <A GROUP WE USE FOR DEPLOYMENT OF WEB FILES>
force user = <A USER WE USE FOR DEPLOYMENT OF WEB FILES>
guest ok = no
Any ideas as to why I can't clone from Windows SourceTree to a SMB share on Linux?
SourceTree (and Git in general) don't work reliably when trying to use a network share repository as local.
Despite whether what you are trying to do is a valid use case for a network-share repository, the people who make decisions about Git would say "just clone it to both the local drive and server, and push/pull as necessary."
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
