Debian :: Can't View Available Samba Shares / But Can Access Them

Feb 24, 2011

I have had server running for over a year and have run into my first major issue. I am no longer able to browse to the server by hostname or IP and view all available Samba shares. I receive a windows popup informing me I do not have permissions However I am still able to browse to the shares themselves \hostnameshare.I am currently assuming this is an issue with the config of the samba share module/

Jul 28, 2010

I am working as a Linux administrator in a very small data centre with 5 servers with following routine tasks.

1. Managing SAMBA shares and giving user specific access for the shares.
2. Scheduling backup of some mount points with rsycn to store data in remote hard disk
3. User and group administration, with sudo access.

Fedora :: Win7 Can't View Samba Shares In F12?

Apr 26, 2010

I just installed a F12 server at home, replacing a FC9 server that ran samba to share media files. I had no problems connecting to samba on FC9 (the version escapes me, sorry) however Win7 seems to be fighting the F12 samba (v3.4.7) trying to do the same thing. I create a directory share, it shows up in windows explorer, but when I try and open it win7 tells me I dont have rights to it.

I created a printer share via samba, and successfully connected to it from win7 and use it as my default printer, and that works OK. I know win7 uses smb2 as its samba protocol, and that might be some of the problem (or all of it), but I'm not sure. I also have googled and saw that people have had had issues with samba as their domain controller while trying to join win7 into the domain, however I do not use win7 as a pdc at all. The solution for this seems to be registry hacks, but I am not sure they apply to me as I haven't seen anyone correlate it. Tailing the logs, this is what I see when I try and explore the file share from win7:

Code:
[2010/04/26 13:09:56, 1] smbd/notify_inotify.c:421(inotify_watch)
inotify_add_watch returned Permission denied

Now I have edited smb.conf manually in the past but to try anything I've even played with webmin to see all the options I might be missing, still my conf is fairly simple:

[Code]...

I see the movies share in win7, but it doesn't let me in. I tried disabling requiring 128bit encryption for NTLM as one suggestion but that didn't work. Also changing local security policies to send LM & NTLM responses, and that didn't work.

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't View Samba Shares?

Jul 23, 2011

I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS I have installed Boxee on it that is all and I am trying to set it up as a Samba Server. I have followed the instructions on following page:[URL]..On the box that I am trying to setup as a Samba Server using Nautilus I can view the shares no problem. On another Ubuntu box no such luck. I can get too Windows Network and I can see my workgroup. When I try and open the workgroup I get the following dialogue box for some time: Opening "WORKGROUP". You can stop this operation by clicking cancel. And then this error dialogue box:

Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server I have spent sometime trying to resolve this myself but have had little luck. As far as I know I have no firewalls in place; Ubuntu does not have one by default is that correct? At this time I don't have a Windows computer to try to connect too the server at this time, but plan to in the future that is why I want to use Samba.

I am connecting the two boxes with an D-Link DIR-825 router; both boxes are on the same subnet. Are there settings in the router that could be affecting this?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't View Samba Shares In Dolphin Although

May 31, 2011

Having a bit of a minor issue with samba on Opensuse 11.4 64 bit. My problem is that I can't view my samba shares in Dolphin although I know they are there. If I bring up dolphin using the Opensuse shortcuts to samba I get this

My computers / drives attached to my network should be viewable here yet they are not. However, if I type in the address directly I can view and access my shares.e.g.

Here is a copy of my smb.conf

netbios name = ThinkPad
passdb backend = tdbsam

Server :: Unable To Access Samba Shares

Jul 24, 2011

First off a little history of me lol. I'm not completely a Linux noobie, but I'm not the most advanced user either. With that said I have a few interesting problems with Samba.First off I can see the NetBios name under Windows Networking (Windows 7), however everytime I try to connect to it I get an Access Denied and/or "Incorrect Password/Username" error. I have gone into secpol.msc and changed the values that other posts have suggested. Both the server and the workstation are located under the same group, and I have used the smbpasswd -a <username>. The server is not configured to be a Primary Domain Controller so.. I'm lost. Infact my brain hurts from 3 days of this. I have posted my SMB.CONF file to see if that helps. Hum.. Maybe I'm just trying to access a file share that isn't there..

Ubuntu Servers :: Can See Samba FileServer Cannot Access Shares

Jun 27, 2010

I recently upgraded my ubuntu samba fileserver to 10.04 along with increasing the size of my RAID 1 /home directory.I am using the same smb.conf file setup I have used on intrepid ibis setup and hardy heron setup before that.On my new setup, I can see the ubuntu server on my windows 7 machines, but I can't see the shares and can't access them.In checking the logs (/var/log/samba), one log continues to look for a printer share from one Windows machine that I have not set up on samba yet.

I have found a few people who have reported similar problems online, even a few who have filed bugs, but then they say "my computer started working suddenly. I don't know what happened." so they closed the bug. or "my computer started working after I rebooted my machine." I have rebooted all machines on the network. That doesn't fix it.

Server :: Samba Shares - No Password Request For Access

Feb 23, 2010

I recently switched from centos to fedora as my server choice. Probably not the best decision but I like trying new things. Now before I switched I had my samba server setup just they way I wanted it. Now I'm having a hard time getting it back to that way. Here is my smb.conf

Code:
[global]
workgroup = workgroup
netbios name = netbios name
server string = Linux Server
security = user
wins support = yes
encrypt passwords = Yes
domain logons = yes
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = %S

[me]
path = /home/me
read only = no
public = yes
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
browseable = yes
writable = yes

Now I did throw away my old smb.conf because it wasn't that complicated and I figured I could reproduce it.. aside from that everything is working except for the fact that I can access any share I want to listed without it requesting a password. I have a username and password setup with smbpasswd and I think everything else is setup correctly involving samba shares but I have no idea why it won't request a password.

Server :: Cant Access Samba Shares In Ubuntu 10.04 From Windows

Jul 7, 2010

So I setup the newest Ubuntu on my old desktop on a 30g HD and have 2 200G HDs with a ntfs file system on those two. I got SSH and FTP configured, then went on to setup Samba.I have it (seemingly) set up well. /dev/sb1 gets mounted on /data1 /dev/sc1 gets mounted on /data2.I want anyone connected to my router to be able to see this machine and be able to read and write to both shares.

I configured WINS on my laptop to point to the linux box. and i've seen the pc in question (TECH-PC) in "My Network Places" on both of our laptops.Long story short, I try to connect to my network share and it says i don't have permission and i need to contact my network admin. This computer is the only one with Linux installed, the rest are windows-OS.Let me know if you need more info, pretty stumped here, have searched, read, scrapped my install and started from scratch, maybe i need to sleep on it

Networking :: Can't View List Of Shares In Nautilus But Can Browse Shares Directly?

Dec 11, 2008

I run opensuse 11 at work. I'm trying to see the list of shares on a "server" that is running windows server 2000. If I try smb://server, it doesn't show any shares, but I can browse directly to it such as smb://server/share1. If I use smbclient, it returns the list of shares correctly. I guess I just don't understand why smbclient shows the list of shared folders, but nautilus cannot.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Access SAMBA Shares Hosted On HOMESERVER?

Jan 6, 2011

I am traveling to the UK next week, and whilst I am there, I need to be able to access my SAMBA shares hosted on my HOMESERVER, via my laptop in england.

I have tried Hamachi before, which works fine on windows, but the linux version is awful, and hardly works. So I need an alternative. I did a bit of googling, but I don't know what "bridged" means when I found a OpenVPN tutorial

I was wondering if anyone could give me some information as to what I'll need, and what I'll need to do on both my homeserver and my laptop?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - Access The Shares But Read-only And Unable To Delete / Modify Files Using The IMacs

Sep 2, 2010

I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).

General :: Cannot Connect To Samba Shares On Reinstalled Debian

Apr 27, 2010

I've reinstalled my debian file server - was running 4.0 and went for a clean 5.04 install.

Everything worked out well, system is running even more smoothly but I cannot connect to the shares.

I had backed up my smb.conf and put that one in place, the users are created + smbpasswd's are set.
Samba is running and yesterday (day of reinstall) I was able to connect without any problem but today I get a Quote:

Smbstatus shows that there has been a connection, the username is listed in /etc/passwd and I entered the password once again but no difference.

At first, I thought there was a problem with file/directory permissions but I have restored the data with rsync so those permissions are like before.

I have read quite some about setting up/configuring Samba and I guess it must have something to do with credentials but no clue to where to look anymore.

Debian Configuration :: Long Delay In Accessing SAMBA Shares

Jan 27, 2016

When I boot up, or come out of standby, etc, it takes about a minute for my Windows shares on Win 7 to show up under Network. Is there anything I can try that will make this initial connection faster? Either on Debian or the Win7 machine? I have the latest Debian vanilla. This is over wifi. My other devices list the shares right away.

Debian :: Setting Up Search And Mount Local Samba Shares?

Aug 1, 2010

I do know how to set up the traditional Window shares by modifying fstab and mkdir /mnt/share. What I was wondering in this day of laptops, if there was a script that could find and mount Window shares that were hooked into your local network, but only on a temporary bases. Something like what you would do mount a usb connection, such as a camera that you had the drivers for. I do know that networks are more complex, was just interested if something like that was developed yet. Just to let you know that my scripting skills are zero, and my ability to do so less.

Debian Configuration :: NFS Shares In Fstab - Error: Mount.nfs4: Access Denied By Server While Mounting (null)

Debian :: No Write Access To Mounted Volume (over Samba)

Aug 10, 2011

I have recently installed Debian on my NAS server. I have also configured Samba for sharing the home directory of a nas user i.e. /home/nas To this directory I have read/write from a windows machine using the nas user credentials.

When I mount my RAID partition /dev/md0p1 to the /home/nas directory, I then realize that all content in this directory (files and subfolders) is only owned by the root user. When trying to access from the windows machine the /home/nas directory, I do not have any write access, only read. I have tried both the nas and the root user credentials.

I have also attempted the change the ownership of the mounted RAID partition to the nas user with the -R recursive option, but I get for the internal files/subfolders an error "operation not supported".

How can I overcome this problem?

- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0 array definition (i.e. ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=bddf8b69:c97967b5:cb104784:7fef7cc3 )?

- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0p1 mounting (i.e. mount /dev/md0p1 /home/nas)?

- Should I do any extra configuration before the mounting etc?
