CentOS 5 :: Samba Sharing Shows Wrong File Names In Windows

Jun 29, 2009

I just installed a CentOs 5.2 Linux server and I'm trying to configure Samba. The file names of files created from the windows workstation are ok, but the file names of files created from the Linux server appear with different names than them are supposed to have. I've checked the Samba configuration file but I can't find options for fixing this trouble. Samba version 3.033375

Fedora Networking :: Unknown Samba Password - Use Samba For File Sharing Like On A Windows Home Network

Jul 17, 2010

I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.

My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.

CentOS 5 Server :: Samba-3.0.33 - Cannot Change Computer Names In A Samba Domain?

Oct 8, 2009

I have to rename a group of machines in my little samba domain (tbd backend) but there is an ugly bug that makes this impossible. have set 'rename user script' variable corectly, also checked all configurations.When i change computer name in my windows box, it shows an error saying something like "Error calling remote procedure"Looking on server side, username for the machine gets correctly changed in /usr/passwd, and also in samba database.But samba log says:

Software :: Windows Computers Can't Resolve Samba Share Names In 10.04

Oct 2, 2010

After upgrading my ubuntu server from 9.04 to 10.04, the window computers couldn't resolve samba shared names anymore, the error code displayed by Windows was 0x80070035.

I was using the ubuntu server as a samba server, using 'share' as the security authentication method, it has been working very well under previous ubuntu versions but, after upgrading to 10.04, the windows computers can't access the server shares anymore; the linux computers don't have any problems (I can access the shares from linux).

As a workaround, I've added the name of the server in c:windowssystem32driversetchosts; but I'd like to know how to fix the problem without modifying every windows computer.

Ubuntu :: Sharing Files With Samba In Windows XP?

Sep 26, 2010

I shared home folders to be accessible from a Windows XP notebook computer which my wife uses some times. One of the folders contains many pictures which I later renamed (bulk rename at the ubuntu box). The pictures at the Windows box still have the old name and they can be opened as usual. However, when my wife rotated a picture and saved it with the same name, the picture just disappeared. For some reason It can not display the new names. I removed the Thumbs.db files, restarted samba and re-configure again the connection with samba but no luck. It is not a big problem but I was wondering if someone knows what this is happening?This is my samba config file:

Code:

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = %h Ubuntu
dns proxy = no

OpenSUSE :: Get A Script Or App That Go Through The Samba Share Recursively And Change All File Names?

Apr 5, 2011

I have a samba share that was previously hosted by and accessed by Windows operating systems. As a result the filenames of all the files are not very command-line/linux friendly. I need to get a script or app that can go through the samba share recursively and change all file names to lowercase and replace spaces in the names with a ".", "_" or something.

Server :: Samba Share File/folder Names Ending In Period?

Aug 31, 2010

On one of my Samba shares on my server I have a folder of mp3 files of my CDs. The one I am having an issue with is "Clarence Carter/Dr. C.C." (yes, the one with the ULTIMATE party song). The "Dr. C.C." folder name is normal locally on the server, but across Samba it comes out "DMOU3A~H". It's definitely Samba doing it, because I get the same result whether accessing the share from Linux or Windoze. I can still access the folder this way, but it would be nice to not have Samba mangle the folder name this way. I am using Samba 3.4.2 on an Athlon64 X2 system running Slackware64.

Fedora Servers :: Samba Export HD Shows Less Capacity In Windows?

Oct 6, 2010

I use Fedora 11, and have an external HD (USB) which has 4 partitions of 500GB each.

/dev/sdb1 is an NTFS partition that is exported to my windows machine using samba.

However, only 75GB is visible in windows (via rt.click properties).

Anyways, below is output from fdisk -l. why does windows see only 75GB of a partition that is 500GB in linux?

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9726 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000ac734

I am running OpenSuse 11. It runs Apache webserver and Samba for filesharing. I am also running webmin. Everything works 100%. I have 2 shared folders that can be accessed by everyone. My question is how can I log in to the shared folder from a windows machine when I set the permissions for only a certain user to log in. My system hostname is Linux.site and my user is henk. I am not sure how I need to log in that way. Should the username be Linux.sitehenk ...

Ubuntu Installation :: Samba For File Sharing With WinXP PC?

Feb 5, 2010

Suppose I have installed a Ubuntu (UNR9.10) PC in my home LAN,-> am I right that I need to have Samba server installed before I can share folders & files (mainly large media files) in the harddisk of Ubuntu PC for read/write access by other LAN PC running WinXP?

-> am I right that Ubuntu PC cannot access (read or write) USB harddisk nor USB thumbdrive as formatted by WinXP? how about SD card through USB card reader? does UNR v9.10 contain Samba or do I need to install it separately after UNR installation? where can I find the instruction for installation and configuration of the samba server?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File-sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2010

I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
netbios name = oak
security = share

[Code]....

I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing The Samba File / Directory?

Aug 1, 2010

I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server.
Two users: chris and gretchen
Directory to share: Music
Music resides in chris' home folder.

I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:

Created user accounts for each
Created Samba accounts with passwords for each
Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it
Assigned the family group to the Music folder.
Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.

chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Sharing Stoped Working?

Dec 1, 2010

I set up a Ubuntu Server for my home network to share among Win XP and Ubuntumachines.Initially everything worked fine with all Win XP machines being able to share files on the server; however, after I installed and setup SSH between my Ubuntu machines and my Ubuntu Server I now cannot share and/or even see my Server directory from Win XP or Ubuntu machines through the Samba.I have tried for 2 days to figure out the problem without success.Did I break something while setting up the SSH? How can I fix Samba?Here's some things I have setup or tried so far:1. Samba users are setup and were working previously.2. Samba share drives were setup and working previously.3. I can see the Server using SSH or SFTP from my Ubuntu machines.4. I have gone over the Samba config file numerous times5. I am administering Samba on the server via the terminal and Webmin

General :: Rsync On Windows To Make It Keep Special Characters In File-names

Sep 2, 2010

We're in the process of implementing an offsite backup of all our servers to a remote Linux server. We're using rsync over ssh.What I've found is that characters such as ±, ¶,´ and £ are replaced on the Linux server with underscores.I don't mind if it changes these characters in the filenames of documents, but when it renames a language pack from Espa±ol.clx to Espa_ol.clx, it could cause issues for us further down the line.

What do I need to do differently to make the special characters copy over correctly? For the initial sync which will take place locally, before the machine is moved offsite, I have SAMBA enabled. I am able to copy files from Windows to the Samba share, retaining the original filename, though it looks different in the Linux directory listing, i.e. têst becomes ƒªstThese files get deleted by rsync when it runs, as it does not match the filenames.

Ubuntu :: File Names With Spanish Accents / Copied From Windows And Don't Work

May 18, 2010

we have two work computers, one with windows and one with Ubuntu. We are going to change the windows computer to Ubuntu, and put them on a network. So we copied all of the documents on the windows computer to the Ubuntu computer as a first step. The problem is, with the documents and folders that we copied, if they have spanish accents we can't open them.I tried looking on the forum but I didn't find anything about exactly that problem. One post suggested that the "locale" might be the problem, but our locale seems to be the correct one for our country and language.

The accents show up as white question marks inside a black diamond. If I open a file inside a folder with an accent, or a file with an accent, it tells me that the file doesn't exist.But when I change the name of the containing folder or the file, and replace the question marks with accents, I can open the folders and files.But we have lots and lots of documents, and it would take a really long time to change the name of all of the folders and files. How can I fix all of them at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Set Up File Sharing With Windows?

Jun 23, 2011

I keep trying and keep trying to set up my father's documents folder on our PC running Ubuntu 11.04 as a shared folder across the network with Windows computers, and I keep getting error messages like this one:

"'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /home/frank as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this."

I currently have his home folder set up so anyone on our PC running Ubuntu can access and change the files, at the moment. I also want to know if I can set up this file sharing with Windows, but still have all his files protected with a password?
