Manual Mounting entry on Samba wiki - Unfounded warning?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/sa … l_mounting

While reading through the samba wiki page, I came across the warning found a bit below within the above section:

Warning: Using uid and/or gid as mount options may cause I/O errors, it is recommended to set/check correct File permissions and attributes instead.

Searching online I found no information as to why this mentioned warning might happen, and in that case I feel this warning is slightly unfounded. Does anyone have a better explanation as to why using uid and gid would cause I/O errors, and if these errors can be observed in any sort of logs (dmesg, journal?)

I currently use my local client uid and gid with no problems, as there is no comparable client/group setup with the samba share on the server side, and if I don't use local uid/gid, the folder is mounted with root permissions. Perhaps there's a way instead to just use user/group text input in mount options?

Not sure if this is the right forum to post in, but I felt it would be as I'd like to specifically discuss that entry of the wiki, and felt the forums would provide better input.

Cheers

The Talk page would be a better place, as it wil be watched by the people that contribute to the page and therefore have both the context and, in some cases, the expertise.

Thank you for the reply jasonwryan, I will post to the Talk page. The only reason I posted here as well was because the last Talk page post was in December 2017, with no reply...

Is this thread ok to stay up anyway? Thank you
