Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Samba Shares On A Box With Multiple User Accounts?

Jul 29, 2010

I setup samba file sharing to auto mount in fstab. Everything works great except when a computer has more than on user account.

The folders in mnt are owned by root and ownership changes to the first user account no matter what user logs in. So only the first user can edit files in the mounted share.

Anyone got a clue why this is happening? Seems the mount folders should be changing ownership to the user that is logged in.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting Samba Shares On System Boot/user Login

Jun 28, 2011

I wrote a little script that will automatically mount two Samba shares to my home directory and I was wondering if a) You guys/gals had any input as to how I could improve on this script and b) Tell me how I would go about having this script automatically execute when I log on via SSH.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data1 /home/user/Data1
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data2 /home/user/Data2

Networking :: Mounting Samba Shares From Different Workgroups?

Jul 19, 2010

So my brother has a home network that is setup with multiple workgroups (don't ask why - I have no idea and he refuses to change it). Anyways I just installed Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) on my mother's computer and I need it to be able to access the fileserver in her house where her data is stored. The Mint system is part of the default workgroup and can only see one other system in this workgroup.

The workgroup the file server is a part of is called "hobnw", the server's name is "fileserver", and the share I want to connect to is called "TV Shows" How can I connect to this network share on Linux? (I also know the username and password) When I browse the network under nautilus all I see is the default workgroup and no others. All of the Windows systems on the network (Windows XP, Vista, and Win7) all see and can access the file server without issues.

Ubuntu Networking :: Grub2 Is Unable To Deal With Mounting The Samba Shares On Lan At Boot Time

Oct 15, 2010

I've been having terrible trouble with my 64bit Desktop v10.04 ever since I upgraded it. Has been a long battle - but I think I have it down to just one remaining issue which I suspect is more related to the network than to the upgrade. So I'll ask here also... The old system always used grub as the bootloader, and has always worked just fine. I have now had to do a complete fresh install, which incorporated a change to grub2 (first time I have used it).

It would seem now, that grub2 is unable to deal with mounting the samba shares on my lan at boot time. The boot always fails, dumping the user to the cli rather than the gui desktop. The error given indicates that the network is unreachable. Most users of the system have given up on Ubuntu altogether because of this, and fallen back into the clutches of the evil empire (the machine dual boots XP). If I log in, and manually startx to open the desktop, the network is there, and the shares are mounted just fine. Everything seems to be working ok - but for crashing out of the boot process with network errors. The fstab file follows, in case there is some cause there I'm not seeing (I have edited names and passwords prior to posting)...

Ubuntu Networking :: Share Out Samba Shares - Multiple Netbios Showing From Server

Nov 30, 2010

I have a fileserver that I want to share out samba shares. However, i configured samba to have another netbios (SAN) and my windows box still sees whoopn-SAN which is the name I gave to my server when i installed it. Now I am using 9.10 and I know that i can create a share from the gnome gui in nautilus and that appears to be a windows like share. How can I turn OFF the windows like shares that ubuntu does out of the box and use ONLY samba? I ask because there appears to be a conflict of permissions b/w samba and this stuff.

General :: Mounting Samba Shares At Bootup?

Sep 3, 2010

I'm using ubuntu 10.04 (gnome) - at some point, I had manually mounted a samba share on the home fileserver,

mount -t cifs //homeserver/sharename /serverfiles

It now boots up automatically every time, which is definitely convenient but I don't know how it's being done. I'm going to be mounting the same share using sshfs when I'm away so I'd like to know how it works. When I googlify this, there is mention of altering fstab (which has not been done) or gnome-mount (which does not seem to be it). There is nothing in preferences/startup applications, what is the automounting mechanism being used?

Ubuntu Networking :: Sync System Accounts With Samba?

Feb 3, 2010

What I want is to use the systems account as the samba accounts.In school we have a project to simulate some sort of corporation with different platforms. I've created a map called shared and for authentication the users should only need to be a member of the group employees. (force group = groupname in smb.conf right?) Now, I don't want to create the users with smbpasswd -a because there is alot of accounts and the users should be able to choose their own passwords. So, is it possible to sync the system accounts with samba and only use group as authentication?

Networking :: Mounting Shares From Windows Server

Dec 8, 2010

My question is that I have a handful of servers, Server 1 is a Suse Linux machine and Server 2 is a Windows Server 2003 machine. I can mount and access the files/shares on the Linux machine no problem but when I come to using the Server 2003 shares I encounter problems ... here is a snip of my fstab ...

Code:
//10.0.0.20/applications /myfolder/applications cifs username=user1,password=pass1,auto,uid=user2,gid=group2,0 0
user1 and pass1 is the username and password of a user (local to the remote machine) and user2 and group2 are taken from the machine performing the mount.

Am I doing it right, is that how I should be mounting a share from a (Domain enabled) Windows Server 2003?

Networking :: Ubuntu 10.04 Delay Mounting Network Shares In Fstab?

Jun 14, 2010

Using Xubuntu 10.04 to connect to some Windows XP shares by adding lines to fstab. The network shares are not mounted at boot, but can be mounted from the command line, after the OS has booted and everything is up. I am suspecting the network isn't up yet, when fstab is processed. I tried adding the option "_netdev" to the relevant network share lines in fstab, but the shares still don't mount automatically at boot up. I read that this option only works for NFS and I am using CIFS. Can someone confirm that _netdev only works for NFS ?

I've seen solutions involving running a mount script after the OS is fully loaded, or running a cron job to periodically check the status of the share and mount if needed. Good workaround but doesn't address the root cause. Is there any other way (besides the _netdev option) to delay mounting of network shares that appear in fstab until the network interface is up ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Login Multiple Ftp Accounts On Same Its Server Using Nautilus?

Jun 5, 2010

I googled a lot but I didn't find anything about this. I have multiple accounts on the same ftp server (the server is not mine I don't access its configuration)

If I write ftp://hostname on the location bar it lets me login, but only allow me to be in only one account at a time. Putting ftp://hostname on the location again just opens the account I logged into and I'm unable to login to the other account to move files between them conveniently.

Is it possible to log into multiple accounts on the same server?

Fedora Networking :: Mounting NFS Shares Crashes Client?

Feb 27, 2010

I'm trying to mount an NFS share from my Gentoo computer on my FC12 laptop, but every time I try to mount the share my laptop completely crashes. The end result is that I have an unresponsive laptop which switches from X to a blank screen and I'm unable to switch to any VT's or reset X. I never had any issues with my laptop freezing like this when I had Gentoo on it, but I'm giving FC a shot.

Server:
NFS version: 3
Code:
$ cat /etc/exports
# /etc/exports: NFS file systems being exported. See exports(5).
/mnt/OSX192.168.*.*(async,rw,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)
Running rpcinfo on the server (command run from client)

Anyone recognize these symptoms or know which log files to look in to begin diagnosing? Currently, I'm only able to transfer files via ssh, so I'd like to be able to do that properly.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Can't See Shares On 9.10 Samba Server?

May 10, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 9.10 Samba file server. I have set up Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix in a home network which also has Windows XP home and Vista computers already present in the network. The XP and Vista machines have no problem accessing the file shares.

The server is running mhddfs with FlexRaid. The security is set to share level access. I have a hosts allow line in the smb.conf file to permit access to certain IP addresses and have added the 10.04 netbook remix IP address to this hosts allow line.

I cannot access shares from the 10.04netbook remix machine if the hosts allow line is active, but have no problem from the windows machines. If i comment out the hosts allow line, all machines can access the share, including the netbook remix machine. I am fairly new to Linux and would appreciate any help in solving this problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares Not Visible On The Network?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to share some folders over the network, but the shared folders are not visible on another computer. This is through double clicking my computer from the Network list in Nautilus. However, I can access the share by typing the full address(<computer name>/<share name>) in "File > Connect to Server...".Since I can't type the address manually from my blu-ray drive, I need to get the shares to show on the network. What is wrong with my settings?

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows 7 Not Reconnecting To Samba Shares?

Jul 9, 2010

Been trying to deal with this one for some time, and still not sure it's more or an issue on the Samba or Win 7 side.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with Samba 3.4.7, using Windows clients from 2000 on up to access shares.

2000 and XP have no trouble both connecting initially to shares, but upon reboot the shares are disconnected and do not automatically reconnect unless one of them is double-clicked on. Passwords and mappings are saved such that Windows tries to reconnect upon restart. When manually reconnected in this way, shares remain open as they should. This isn't a big issue, but it would be preferable to have these shares reconnect so that links and shortcuts across the LAN work right from bootup.

The bigger issue is with Vista/Windows 7 - When shares are set up with appropriate passwords and such on the clients, they work as expected, until the client is rebooted. After signing into windows 2 things are observable:

- Black screen for 2-5 minutes before desktop appears

- error message appears when you try to double-click on a mapped share (even with a saved password) that the connection cannot be restored.

If you go into credentials manager and delete the saved password for the share(s) on the samba server, you are prompted for the password when you try to open any of the shares - reenter it and you're then fine until the next reboot.

There must be some issue with the persistence of the saved password, but not sure if this a Windows-side issue or not. Read some other info on this, and had to make the following changes earlier to even get Win 7 clients to connect to samba at all:

[URL]

It appears that when Win 7 starts up, it simply can't connect using the saved password, and the desktop doesn't come up until the reconnecting action(s) time out (if you disconnect your win 7 machine from the network the delay is not present).

It's not a game-breaker, but really annoying when rebooting having the delay and reentering the network share password(s).

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup Two Samba Shares On Server 10.04.1 Lts X64

I'm trying to setup two samba shares on ubuntu server 10.04.1 lts x64

The first is a Read-Only share for windows users that doesn't require a password. This i've managed to do so far.

The second is a Password protected Upload share. So far I am able to have both shares (which access the same directory) but am unable to log in to the pass word protected share.

I know i'm not doing things quite right, and would like a little bit of help

The smb.conf file is the default ubuntu file with these added shares:

Comment = Network Attached Storage
path = /media/RAID/NAS

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.4 - Incorrect Details Of Samba Shares

This machine reports that it can see the server on the network but instead of the expected data we see what is on the local machine. I admit I am out of my depth with SAMBA.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Accessing Samba Shares From Applications?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a NAS running Samba. My Samba shares are accessed from a Windows computer, it works very well.

With the kubuntu 10.04 computer, things are different : I can see the Samba shares in Dolphin, and copy files to the local drive, but lots of applications don't allow me to open a file on a Samba share.

Some applications such as OpenOffice let me browse to the share but refuse to open the remote file

Some other applications don't let me browse to shares at all.

What's up with that ? Surely I'm not the only one wanting to access files on a NAS ? How do other people do it ?

PS I chose kubuntu 10.04 because the 10.10 install hangs, the "ui" workaround I saw here and there did not work, the only solution offered was to go back to 10.04

Networking :: Samba Can Mount Some Vista Shares But Not Others?

Jan 30, 2010

I'm having trouble setting up samba to work with my vista machine. Whenever I try to mount certain shares I'm getting error 13- permission denied. Specifically, I'm trying to mount my entire C: with this command at the console:

mount.cifs //windows_box/C$ /mnt/windows -o username=tyler,password=****

I've also tried:

mount -t smbfs
mount -t cifs

The funny thing is that I CAN mount some other shares, but not all. My distro is slack-current. I've been following as many relevant threads on this issue for a while now and have tried as many of the suggestions as I could understand, but it's getting to the point that I've lost track of what I've tried and what I haven't. Things I have tried:

Checking permissions on the shares: seem to be ok
enabling encrypted passwords: not sure if I did it right.
editing the registry for LmCompatablity
