Rclone mount s3 should fail with invalid credentials

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

We do not receive any error when using rclone mount to mount an s3 bucket with invalid credentials or non-existing bucket

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.56.2

  • os/version: alpine 3.14.2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.10.47-linuxkit (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.1
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone  --timeout 10s --rc-server-read-timeout=10s -vv --dump headers --contimeout=1s --retries=1 --low-level-retries=1 --config /root/rclone/rclone.conf  mount source:non-existing-bucket/  /test3

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = s3
access_key_id = this-is-not-my-access-key
secret_access_key = this-is-not-my-secret-key
region = eu-north-1
provider = AWS

A log from the command with the -vv flag

That seems like a fairly straight one. I'd open a github as I can reproduce that as well as that could be a good enhancement/bug fix.

Do you mean that I should create an issue on Github, Issues · rclone/rclone · GitHub ?

Yep, sorry, still early here :slight_smile: as I didn't even link it. That is the spot though!
