Fedora Servers :: Setup A Samba Network Share With A Directory Server Backend?

Feb 24, 2009

I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:

[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282)
check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb.
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318)
check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER

Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.

Fedora Servers :: Connect To Samba Server ( Share ) From Windows Xp?

Mar 31, 2009

if i try to connect to my samba server ( share ) from my windows xp ( or vista, i've tried both ) it says, that the network share cannot be found. i've installed all necessary rpms on my fedora 10, necessary for running a samba server:


[root@********* samba]# rpm -qa |grep samba

after that, i've configured the smb.conf file, as follows:


[root@*********** samba]# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
# ----------------------- Netwrok Related Options -------------------------
workgroup = GROUP


there is no iptables definition, or any other firewall installed, neither on the server nor the client. i've read through alot of howtos an manuals, but was not able to find the problem.

Ubuntu :: Setup A SAMBA Network And Share To Windows 7 / OSX?

Feb 10, 2010

running a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop in the living room with a LOT of files. I've tried all week to get this working, and can't tell where the problem is. I want to make a music share that will: Allow guests, but as read-only Allow me to mount in Windows 7 with the user 'thecheeks' Give user thecheeks read/write access to that share

I swear Samba ends up working but maybe the problem is with Windows 7. I looked at the SAMBAWiki Win 7 page and made sure my registry values were what they should have been (and they were).

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Samba Share And Group Permissions?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a couple of user accounts where each member belongs to a group i have created: Each user access the share using their own user account credentials.
How can I configure Samba in a way so that each modification done on the share gets the owner of the user and my group instead of the user and the users own group? I would also like the access rights to be 770 to each modification.

In other words, today each modification by "userA" get the owner "userA.userA" and I would like it to be "userA.MyGroup" with "rwxrwx---" permissions.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Windows Share - You Might Not Have Permission To Use This Network Resource

Jul 7, 2010

I cannot browse the samba printers from windows xp professional clients.

I get the following message when trying to access the workgroup:

Code: Example is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available

Another strange thing is that if I set the workgroup to EXAMPLE in smb.conf, the workgroup shows up as Example on my windows clients.

Ubuntu Servers :: Get A Samba Server Up And Running To Share With Windows Machines?

Oct 14, 2010

i manged to get a samba server up and running to share with my windows machines. But i still want more. My main goal is to be able to share my movies. I have a laptop hooked to my flat screen with 3TB's of external drives, thats whats acting as my server. I have ubuntu desktop installed because i use it to play movies also.

I'm looking to set up something that is a little faster than samba (yes i no trying to share through USB 2.0 external drives and a wifi connection isn't going to be real fast no matter what) but i want to be able to access my server remotely. like maybe FTP? but what i'm asking here is what protocol should i use and what programs? i was thinking gadmin-proftpd and then filezilla to access?

- Which application might have created them?

- Is it save to delete those ?

With e.g. "find . -type f -name ".directory.lock.??????.test" -exec rm -f {} ;"

Fedora Networking :: When Try To Mount The Share To A Different Directory On The Server, Receive A 'no Such Directory' Error?

Dec 18, 2010

I have a server with Fedora 13 with which I would like to get NFS working. I have looked up multiple howto's and tutorials, but I'm having a problem not addressed by any of them.Official how-to, another how-to, and another how-to.I have verified that nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, portmap, and system-config-nfs are installed and running. I have verified that I have, in fact, shared the directory that I want to share, and that the proper permissions are set.

I had to go through some gyrations to get the Belkin wireless N router to allow my server to have a static IP. However, I can ping the server from the nfs client (a toshiba satellite running mint 8), and vice versa. I have (for now) disabled firewalls on both computers. I think I have disabled SELinux on Fedora 13 (for now).When I attempt to connect to the server from the client, the output looks like this:Quote:

aragorn ~ # mount -v /home/kelev/test/
mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sat Dec 18 12:21:09 2010

I have a drobo (which is like a little USB RAID machine) connect via USB to the linux box. While trying to share it via samba I get weird messages from my windows machine (see screenshot). I have tried to share multiple folders on this drobo and no luck, all the same result.

I also tried a symbolic link, no good.

Here is a screen shot
Here is my smb.conf file:

Fedora Networking :: Can't Share A Folder On Samba Network?

Jul 12, 2011

In this post I will give a quick solution for a possible problem with sharing a folder in Fedora 15.I had to spend some time for research and frustration so, hopefully this post will save you from both. If you have Samba installed and configured to share certain folders on your Fedora machine for a Windows network but, they can't be accessed then following might solve the problem:

1. Go to Applications, Other and run FIREWALL

a). go to TRUSTED SERVICES and check SAMBA and SAMBA CLIENT that are located in the list of services
b). click APPLY
c). click APPLY


If your Samba is configured correctly, your shared folder should be available on your Windows network.A little hint: if you don't want other users to use passwords for accessing your shared folder, select SHARE as an Authentication Mode in Samba GUI Configuration Tool, Preferences, Server Settings, Security

Fedora Servers :: Samba Share When Selinux Is In Permissive Mode?

May 13, 2009

I don't think it has anything to do with the config file. More to do with SElinux. I need to know how to configure SElinux so I can see my samba share when SELinux is on. When I setenforce 0 I can seen all the files and folders set it to setenforce 1 cannot see anything.

Here is the output when I ran [root@fileserver /]# getsebool -a | grep smb
allow_smbd_anon_write --> on
smbd_disable_trans --> on

These two options were off I tried turning them on.

This is another one of the commands I tried running. I did change a few options but I am not sure which I do need to change. I am running a stand alone server so I don't need the DC option.

[root@fileserver /]# getsebool -a | grep samba
samba_domain_controller --> off
samba_enable_home_dirs --> off
samba_export_all_ro --> on
samba_export_all_rw --> off
samba_share_nfs --> off
use_samba_home_dirs --> on

I can also post a copy of my smb.conf file too.

Fedora Servers :: Access Samba Share By Hostname From Win7

Mar 13, 2011

Running samba-3.5.6-71.fc14.x86_64. Why cant I access samba share by short-hostname from win7. When I ping short-hostname, the answer is the actual ip and short-hostname.mydomain.com

sa pinging short-hostname does work, but accessing it from start-run does not! Accessing by ip or short-hostname.mydomain.com works fine. ssh by short-hostname from win7 works fine too.

Fedora Servers :: Samba PDC / Wins Proxy To Allow Share Across Networks

Mar 23, 2011

My Fedora router has three nic's, one for the internet, one for lan and one for the wireless network, which uses hostapd. I have set up samba in order to enable windows file sharing from wireless lan to wired lan. Using the samba documentation I have enabled the wins server and wins proxy which should allow met to browse the shares across the networks, which theoretically should do the trick but it doesn't work as expected. I can see the pc's from the other network using windows neighbourhood, but as soon as I access one of them it fails saying that "network path could not be found" or something like this. Tried using windows 7, windows xp and linux for browsing but the result is the same. As firewall I have shorewall and the samba specific ports are enabled for both networks. How to setup samba for inter-network browsing?

I have attached the global config section from smb.conf file:
server string = Samba Server
interfaces = eth1, lo, wlan0
bind interfaces only = Yes
security = SHARE
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50 .....

Fedora Servers :: Cannot Connect Win7 And Mac0S 10.6 Computers To Samba Share

Jan 3, 2010

I just recently constructed a computer to create a nice Fedora Linux server to replace a Mac Mini server that I have been using for a few years. I'm attempting to create a Samba share for my machines, a Windoze 7 machine as well as a couple MacOS 10.6 machines. I've set up Samba, started the service, allowed Samba in the firewall, and used system-config-samba to set up a share with a user. I created a User called "space", and a share /media/peliculas/Movies (a mounted hard drive). When I type in \IP_ADDRESS in the address bar in windows 7, I get the option to log in. I log in correctly and I see two directories "space" and "Movies." Unfortunately when I click on one of them I get the following error message:

Windows cannot access \IP_ADDRESSMovies Check the spelling of the name. Otherwize, there might be a problem with your network. To try and identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. I also get something similar when I attempt to connect with my mac machine. Using "Connect to Server" I type in: smb:\IP_ADDRESS, and login, I have the option to mount "Movies" or "space." If I select any of these, I get the following error message: There was an error connecting to the server "IP_ADDRESS." Check the server name or IP addres, and then try again. If you are unable to resolve the problem contact your system administrator.

Also, if I type 'smbclient -U space -L IP_ADDRESS' I can see the "Movies" in the "Sharename." At this point I'm not sure what else to do, and have been trying to figure this out for the last few days (losing sleep due to being baffled). The only thing that I can think of is that I have something wrong with the smb.conf file. Here is what it currently displays:

Global Settings

workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server Version %v
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50


One last thing, when I check the log files, there are error messages that state: smbd/service.c:1009(make_connection_snum) '/home/space' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [peliculas] Error was Permission denied --Windoze 7 and MacOS 10.6 log files

Fedora Servers :: Special Permissions For Running Windows Programs Off A Samba Share?

Feb 24, 2009

I've got my Samba shares up and running. I can stream files from the server, I can create files on the server, and I can copy files from the server.

Running a Windows program (from a Windows box) directly from the Samba server, however, is turning into a nightmare. I'm getting Access is Denied errors from the Windows box, yet I can copy/create/etc from the entire directory with no problems.

Are there any special permissions I need to run EXE files from a Windows box, located on a Samba share? I've already chmod'd everything to 777, and I show full access when ls -Z is used.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba To Replace Windows File Server In Active Directory?

Jul 22, 2010

We have a couple of Windows file servers that just share files. It is all they do. We'd like to use Ubuntu on two replacement servers allowing Windows XP and Windows 7 clients to access the files. Our network is active directory based due to Exchange and homegrown .NET apps, so it is important that active directory is used to authenticate the clients. Samba doesn't need to be a pdc or bdc, but provide pass through authentication.I understand that Samba can communicate with active directory through security-ads and security-domain.

Here are my questions to see if I should proceed:1) Folder permissions:If we move all our files to the Ubuntu server how do we set folder permissions and will we see the active directory accounts when we do this?2) Skipping ubuntu accounts: I know the domain and ads allow you to skip creating ubuntu accounts, right? If not, how do you keep the passwords synchronized?3) Easiest way? Is there a very easy way to pull this off that I've missed? My goal is to eliminate the Windows based file servers while ensuring the admin part of it is as easy as possible.To date I've been able to get the sharing to work with an ubuntu account mirroring the active directory account. I've been able to get Samba to talk to the pdc, but not successfully through domain security. ADS security was a complete cluster with winbindd

OpenSUSE Network :: User's Home Directory Saved In Samba Server Not Locally

Mar 27, 2011

Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to GNU/Linux (openSUSE as server for GNU/Linux clients) I managed to set up a DC with roaming profiles for the few remaining Windows users, user validation and login for the openSUSE boxes and a few network shares with different rights. I know there are no roaming profiles for GNU/Linux and I can live with that but I would like to specify wich users/groups would have their home directories saved locally (notebook users) and which will save them on the Samba server.

By default home directories are saved locally but somehow Samba creates a minimal home directory for each user under /home in the Samba server. How can I tell the client box to use that directory? and how can I set up the few notebook users to save it on their disks? Maybe using the options under Yast > Security... > Users and groups management > Users (LDAP Users filter) > and then select the user and use the "Manage Samba account parameters" plug-in for specifying the different paths cant achieve this.

Fedora Servers :: Mounting NFS Share On Newly Created Directory Failed

Mar 12, 2010

Running NFS on Fedora 10. Exports fine. I tested it locally. I tested the NFS configuration by trying to access the exported directory from my local machine, before testing it from a remote machine. While logged in as root, I created a new directory "/mnt/nfstest".

Then I mounted the NFS share at the new directory I created:
[root@eric root]# mount -t nfs localhost:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

When I tried to mount on the remote client:
[root@frank root]# mount -t nfs eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

After a while I got:
# mount eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

I tried strace but wasn't sure what I was looking for, but I've attached the results as a .odt file.
