Networking :: After Upgrading From Win7-32 To WIN7-64 Can't Mount Cifs Shares

Jul 21, 2010

This is the first time I have run into issues mounting windows shares but I really can't figure this out. Can someone put me out of my windows misery please.

First off, last week I rebuilt my work PC fromWIN7 32bit to WIN7 64bit since then I can no longer mount the window share on my ubuntu server:

I recreated my windows share called "Linux" and used the properties, advanced sharing and added everyone, full access and my domain account full access.

If I browse to \ipaddress I can see my share and access it. From a XP machine I can see the share and access it.

From linux I use the same mount point as before, /linux I use the same fstab and it fails

Code:

I try this manually now:

Code:

Next I try to mount it:


Code:

I looked at my firewall rules and they seem ok.

Next test was connecting to my 2nd pc on windows XP no probs mounted first time.

What is wrong with my new Win 7 setup?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Can't Get The Win7 Boxes To See Shares On It

May 7, 2011

Home network with 3 Win7 boxes and one elderly Fedora 11 box (heloise) which has been running Samba well for several years. I've just built and started configuring a new Fedora 14 box (abelard) to replace heloise, but can't get the Win7 boxes to see shares on it.

Windows Explorer on the Win7 boxes can see abelard, and they can see the two shares I've created on it, but if I double-click on a share I get the "Windows cannot access" dialog.

I've set a Samba password for one user (ralph), the same as that user's login password, and set the "smb password file" entry to point to the resulting .tdb file.

All IP addresses are static (via Static DHCP), everybody can ping everybody, I can ssh from a Win7 box to abelard via Putty, and the network operates cleanly in all other respects. Here's my smb.conf:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2011/05/07 11:25:27
[global]
workgroup = MSHOME

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 Networking :: How To Get 10.04 Computer Connected To Win7 Shares

Oct 3, 2010

I'm trying to get my Ubuntu computer to connect my Windows 7 shares. I do have Samba installed and it can "see" my Windows 7 computer...however, I cannot connect to the machine. I think I've heard some issues with the way how Windows 7 deals with networking now and Samba doesn't work with Windows 7 now or something? If possible, I can always use an NFS server and client for my Windows 7 computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vmware - Finding / Mapping Network Shares In Win7 Guest On 10.10 64 Bit

Jan 23, 2011

finding / mapping network shares on Win 7 guest in vmware. I am running 10.10 64 bit ubuntu and installed vmware workstation 7 (64 bit version). I created and installed win 7 (ultimate) vm. everything is good so far. The issue is I have a second desktop with ubuntu and I have shared 4 drives on that desktop. I want those shared available to the win 7 guest. And even after enabling the shared folders I do not see them.

Note: I have a shared folder on the same machine where I have vmware installed and win7 has assess to that drive.. its just that the shares on network are not available. Note2: i had virtualbox installed and it worked fine.

General :: Using Full Access NFS Shares?

Jan 15, 2010

I am currently trying to set up a small network in which my first computer has a NFS share going to three other computers. I have been able to set up this share correctly, however I am having problems in granting full Read/Write permissions to all user accounts across the computers.

At the moment I am not using NIS or any-other account synchronization tool and I am wondering if there is another way, without the need of the mentioned tools.

Ubuntu :: 10 Can't Access Windows Shares?

Sep 25, 2010

I am running Linux Ubuntu 10.04 and I currently have this computer and another Windows 7 PC connected together in the same workgroup. When I look at the Network on the Ubuntu File Browser, I can see the windows 7 pc there, but when I try to open it, I get the message Password Required - it wants a username, password and domain (the domain box is filled in with the workgroup name). Whatever set of credentials I try to input, the box just pops up again asking for password. Password protected sharing is disabled on the windows 7 pc and I have even tried disabling Windows firewall to no effect. I am very new to Ubuntu and Linux and am therefore completely stuck - what I really want is to access a shared printer connected to the Windows 7 pc from the Linux machine.

Fedora :: FC11 And Windows Shares Access

Jul 18, 2009

In the last couple of weeks I was trying to work thru some issues regarding access from my FC11 box to my WinXP box over the local network (Have had no problem using Samba to go the other way). I was trying to use smb4k and couldn't seem to make it work. Maybe that's because I use Gnome as my desktop (tho, I would guess that the install of smb4k would include necessary dependencies for KDE).I went back to this problem today and figured out how to access the window shares using Gnome Connect to Server function (Have tried it in the past but must have been doing something wrong). I now get the icon on my desktop and the appropriate listing in the Place menu.

What I notice is when I click on the icon (or select the share listing on the Place menu) to open the "folder" I get a duplicate of the icon on my desktop and duplicate listing on the Place menu. The window opens with access to the folder without any problem. If I close the window, it does so just fine, but I'm left with the duplicate icon and menu listing. To get rid of these "extraneous" items, I need to unmount the volume. Then the extra icon and Place menu listing are gone. If I already have opened the window and incurred a duplicate icon, etal., even if I close and then open it again, no more duplicates are added.Is this normal or is there a setting I need to change to keep this duplicate from happening.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Win 7 Shares From Lucid

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to access a shared printer connected to my Win7 PC from a laptop running Lucid Lynx. I have Samba installed and configured okay (I think) and I can browse the Ubuntu laptop from Windows but when I try to access shares on the Win7 machine I get a message NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL.

I've reviewed the security settings on the Win7 machine and tried turning off the firewall. I can see the Win7 computer on my network and ping it from the Ubuntu laptop but I cannot access shared folders or the printer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Access Some Nfs Shares

Jan 13, 2011

At, or around, the time of upgrading from Lucid to Maverick, shares on some of my nfs servers have become inaccessible:

Code:
peter@Desktop:~$ ls /net/10.2.1.21/
opt
peter@Desktop:~$ ls /net/10.2.1.21/opt/
sybhttpd

[Code]....

The share is hosted on a PopcornHour Network Media Tank, running a Linux system. With Lucid, I was able to access the share without any problems, both in Nautilus and from terminal. I can still access the share from other nfs clients - it's just ubuntu/Maverick which exhibits this problem. I have tried reverting to older firmware on the PopcornHour but that doesn't make any improvement.

Was there some significant change in nfs with the Maverick release, or have I misconfigured something?

When I try to access those machines, I get a message "Failed to retrieve share list from server." I've been able to mount other machines by using straight IP accesss, but that is of little use since IP addresses are not Static.

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Access To Windows Shares

My first post, having only installed 11.04 at the weekend on one of my old PCs.Everything is up & running pretty well, I have a 100BT home network with 4 Windows XP PCs and a Synology DS211j server.I can see & access these other shares from Ubuntu, but it's so slow to connect, approx. 45 seconds each time, compared to almost instant from any of the XP machines.Could someone suggest how this performance could be improved?

Networking :: Trying To Access Windows Shares From Fedora 12

Jan 3, 2010

This is a bit of a shameless cross-forum bump, as I'm really trying to crack samba in the hope of getting some server action going, and this is the closest I've been to actually understanding what I'm playing with.
"Well, I've lasted a lot longer than usual before resorting to asking around, but I've finally gone delightfully mad. I've been trying to access shares based on Windows 7 Ultimate with limited user access on said shares. I've managed to get into my XP machine, another mate's Vista machine and various Linux boxes with no issues, but that's only for shares that are accessible by everyone. The moment I try to get into a share that requires user credentials, I get "Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

If I try to access restricted shares (be it machine or folder) through Nautilus, I will get a user logon prompt, but it fails. Using smbclient results in just as little success, and now I'm munching through O'Reiley's Samba manual from '99, after realising that I need to basically learn Samba in its entirety to have a hope in hell at getting this to work. The trouble is though, every HOWTO and relevant forum post I get my hands on all seem to concentrate more on the server side of things, and usually servering from a linux box, not the other way around as I'm trying to.

The above Windows 7 machine won't even allow me to view its share contents, whereas the XP machine will allow me to browse, but won't allow me to access folders with restricted access. I'm pretty sure there aren't any major issues with the way the Windows 7 machine is setup, as it can be accessed with logon from my Xbox, Ubuntu machine, XP and Vista, with only Fedora having problems getting in as it constantly fails logon. What I'm trying to establish is, if Ubuntu can get in, is there something in my Fedora samba config I'm missing that's preventing me access? My thanks in advance to those of you who've been able to put up with me rambling"As you'll see in my original fedoraforum post, the workgroup misreport issue mysteriously fixed itself after a few updates, although I'm inclined to blame my mate's Win 7 box...call it force of habit, I've just generally come to mistrust an OS that tries so diligently to shift focus away from its shell.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Windows 98 To Access Linux Shares

Nov 9, 2010

when I try to access the shares from a Win98 laptop. The server name shows up in the Network Neighborhood (freaking childish names!) but when I double-click it, Win98 keeps asking me for the password for the \SHOPIPC$ connection. I have deleted the .pwl file on the Win98 and logged in using the same user/pass combination as I do on the Linux. On the Linux, I ran 'smbpasswd -a derek' and supplied my password.Windows XP sees the server just fine, but Windows 98 just does not want to play nice. Is there any thing that I can do to fix this without breaking the connection to the XP box or the Linux laptop?

Ubuntu :: SMB Shares - Unable To Access External Drives

Dec 6, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 set up on my acer revo, this is connected to a wireless router via ethernet. Next door, is a pc that is running windows XP, and an original XBOX running XBMC. Those are connected via a crossover cable. The XP machine connects to the web wirelessly using my router, and the connections are bridged for XBMC's TV show scrappers. The idea is we use the revo for downloading as it consumes a relatively small amount of electricity. I have two external 1tb drives connected to the revo with Tv shows and movies, I would set up a network share so the XP machine could see them, and the xbox would be able to share the videos present.

I have installed samba, right clicked the drives in question and clicked the sharing options. I have ticked to allow guest access, and write access. This worked! I the shared the /home directory on the revos harddrive using exactly the same method. This worked. However I was no longer able to access the External drives. The UID has remained the same. I then tried unsharing /home, still no joy. Tried resharing /home Home now works, but still the externals don't.
