Fedora :: Login To The Samba Server Using Smbclient But It's Not Working?
Jan 14, 2010
My OS is F11 and i've two systems; i'm running Samba server on one system and i've login on the client system and trying to login to the Samba server using smbclient but it's not working.Can someone give me the command to login to the Samba server using smbclient!
How come I can access samba share, and windows workgroup computer and don't have any samba package installed? Sudo aptitude show smbclient says not installed. Sudo aptitude show samba says not installed.
I'm trying out Samba for the first time, the main directory is called "workplease", and I have 2 users, "keith" and "aspire". I set the permission on "workplease" to aspire by doing "chown aspire:aspire workplease". Then on my windows7 machine I can connect to the samba server using aspire login, see my "aspire" folder and the "workplease" folder, I can create txt files, folders ...ect
But I would like the user account "keith" to be able to read/write to the same "workplease" folder. I added both users to the group "networkg" by doing
"usermod -a -G networkg aspire" "usermod -a -G networkg keith"
So my question is how can I make the folder "workplease" have permissions to let any group members of "networkg" read/write/execute anything they put in that folder, or sub folders? Im getting rid of my Windows Home Server , and trying to use samba to do the file sharing for my buddy and I.
edit: Seems doing "chmod 774 -R workplease" changes the permissions on all the files/subfolders, to give owner and group full access only, but is there a way anytime someone creates a txt file, or copies over an mp3 for example, it auto-maticly has 774 permission?
I can't get the samba server to work on a Fedora 13 system. First of all, I've activated the "smb" service. After this, since I couldn't find any samba configuration tool in Gnome, I switched to KDE and launched Menu - Computer - System Settings - Advanced - Samba. I typed in my workgroup and netbios name and added a share (2nd tab). Then I added my user name to the blank list "samba users" (4th tab), which wasn't very effective, because this list is blank again when I leave (OK) and reopen this config tool.
From a windows machine, I can't access this Fedora system. Netbios doesn't work (ping netbios name - ...could not find name...) and trying \IP in the explorer shows an error message "Windows cannot find...". Btw firewall and Selinux are both deactivated.
When I open Dolphin on the Fedora locally and type "smb://localhost" it *does* show a logn window, but no matter what I type in there, it just shows this login windows again after clicking OK.
I've successfully joined my 8.04 LTS samba file server to the windows domain. I've read many tutorials like [URL].I used krb5 and winbind and not modern likewise-open. I had successfully got the ticket for the user under whom I was able to join to AD. I'm able to get domain controller information with net ads info. But I can't login to that server through ssh (I'm using Putty at windows XP) with any ADuser credentials. I've tried
windomainADuser ADuser@windomain ADuser
I only get firstname.lastname@example.org'password prompt and access denied.
Just completed a fresh install if V5.3. It works fine.
Samba server: I tried to create a Samba user named "root" with Windows user name "administrator". Message is something like "account already exists"? I know "root" exists, but why can't I use it as a login? I don't get this error when I use another existing user account "LouA".
This is important to me because many documents state that "root" is to be used as the user name. I don't want to change these.
Current set-up allows access to all users (there is no Samba user listed) and I can read, write and delete files from Windows just fine.
I have a Debian and a Ubuntu box. I installed a samba server on Debian box. I can log in the samba share folders from Windows boxes. Since the samba server has SHARE security mode, I need password only. But when I try to log in the samba share folders from Ubuntu box using nautilus, it asks username, domain and password. I cannot log in share folders on the Debian box. There is no message. Nautilus keep showing the password input box until i cancel it.So I use smbmount command. It works well. But that way is not comfortable at all. Anyone can help me logging in samba share in nautilus?
I use OpenSuse 11.3 and I successfully built a samba/openldap server. However the raoming profiles were not working so I removed the roaming profile part of the samba and the openldap using ldap account manager. I also rejoined a couple of the computers back to the domain successfully (it was not an instaneous join, it took a good minute or 2 to join each pc). Now I cannot cannot login to any of these computers with the domain credentials. I can share using the UNC path no problem and this was working find about 1 week ago.
On 1 of the computers Iw as able to finally get a log file saying this:
I`am just trying to connect Samba with ldap to make it simpler for the users to log in. We have already attached squid, so by that we thought it would be easy to do the same with samba. I think we did something wrong with the ldap config for the os with is btw:
Quote: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) VERSION = 11 PATCHLEVEL = 1 We added Quote: ldap admin dn = cn=xxx,o=xxx
Im trying to set up a samba PDC and login to it from Vista, and everything is fine except that the login script is not getting run at all. I dont want roaming profiles, I just want a script to map the samba users drive and a couple of other network shares. Pasting smb.conf at end of post. The logon script is in the netlogon directory and Im pretty sure all the permissions are ok. /home/samba/netlogon/logon.cmd This is a windows file.Vista logs in ok as the domain user, just no script!
[global] ; General server settings netbios name = TILVERTON server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
I have a samba server with security user. I have a number of shares inside the share with different users logins. But while accessing the shares from windows, in the login prompt, by default username it takes as the guest. How will I disable the default guest user login ?
The mount appears to complete cleanly, however when I browse the directory /winfiles it is always empty.The smbclient command works properly using the same credentials.The /root/credentials file looks something like this
I'm having problems using Samba+winbind 3.3.8 as a fileserver on a Win2008 domain. - getent and wbinfo are reporting correct information about users. - Ownership of file created from user using the samba mount are working fine. However, my groups directories are allowing people who shouldn't .. From the shell everything is working as expected, but not from samba..
He has a Samba 3.2 server on openSUSE 11.1. It worked fine with XP and Vista as a PDC. There are no NT servers on this office LAN. Now he has a W7 computer, and he was not able to sign on. From searching, it seems that an upgrade of Samba and a tweak of the registry are required. He did the upgrade to 3.5 from a supplementary openSUSE repo and restarted the server. But it seems he cannot sign on yet. I don't know if he did the registry tweak, I'm waiting to hear back.
The MS article: Windows 7 and Samba 3 interoperability My question is: He seems to be under the impression that Samba 4 is required to work with W7, but that M$ article seems to contradict him. Has anybody got W7 working with Samba 3 as a PDC like in XP and Vista? I can't find any FAQs about this.
I have a client who was using samba 3.0.21a, and there was a single printer being served, well as as quite a few shares. I recently upgraded to samba 3.3.4, and they have reported back that the printer is no longer working. Everything else is OK.
Does anybody know off the top of their head what has changed that would cause it to stop working?
Here is the relevant portion of the config:
Code: server string = Printers workgroup = XXX security = user smb passwd file = /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
I am running samba-3.0.21b-2 browseable = no, not working on subfolder (worklocal) .. what I missed? work folder already invisible .. but when I entered into it .. I still able to see folder named local..
[work] public = yes only guest = no writable = yes
I have installed a Samba Server (Ubuntu 10.10 Server) detailed config below. The server is up and running but clients running windows 7 cannot connect as their credentials are not accepted. The pop window for credentials keep coming back up on the clients and no connection is issued. I have tried to change the policies on windows 7 as such:
I configuring samba under Fedora 12, i just set in samba dialog Server Settings->Security and choose guest account: apache. The account is exist io the Samba Server, now i try to login from Windows to Linux share, server asks me login and password, however when i set apache as login and not set password, server asks me login again as the password is incorrect. As i understand under guest acount can login any windows user without the password.
On all of my xp clients no matter what the username is is I am continously getting the error saying that the profile cannot be found. I just built this domain recently and since day 1 the roaming profiles have not worked.
I am using Fedora 12. I have the following problem, when i working with system-config-samba dialog:I add the new user on the server:as following:
Unix username: vova Windows username:test
As described in Customisation Guide for Red Hat 9: "If the user has a different username on a Windows machine and will be logging into the Samba serverfrom the Windows machine, specify that Windows username in the Windows Username field."So i logged from the Windows machine not under test(Windows username) but under vova.And i logged in without the problem. However it seems that samba should check windows username=test (as have written in samba-config) and ask an password for different users. And additionally, if samba check the currect user in Windows itself and verify it with Unix user, what for we need write the Windows username in samba config? I don't understand
PDC SAMBA + OPEN LDAP (ubuntu 9.04) Linux (File Servers) + Windows machines all working well

[global] workgroup = FLOWCONNECT server string = OSLO SAMBA FILE SERVER [code].....
I have the same set up on my File Server (Ubuntu 9.04) which use samba 3.3 is working fine.Someone know if has some different setting between samba 3.3 (ubuntu 9.04) and samba 3.4 (ubuntu 9.10) that could cause this problem ?
