I have installed CentOS 5.5 along with the Samba package. I have it configured (i believe), but when I try to access a share, it is not accepting my UN/PW. I have copied the smb.conf file from a working computer over to this one, but it is still not accepting my login. Anyone know of any other files I should check?
I have moved a working smb.conf file to this new box, and both computers have the same UN/PW's
I have to rename a group of machines in my little samba domain (tbd backend) but there is an ugly bug that makes this impossible. have set 'rename user script' variable corectly, also checked all configurations.When i change computer name in my windows box, it shows an error saying something like "Error calling remote procedure"Looking on server side, username for the machine gets correctly changed in /usr/passwd, and also in samba database.But samba log says:
=============================================================== [2009/10/08 11:10:32, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(42) INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 11 in pid 11052 (3.0.33-3.7.el5_3.1)
I'm trying to setup a kickstart installation and having some trouble with firewall settings. When you do a manual install it gives you the option on first boot to allow https, samba, and nfs4 in the firewall. I have as yet been unable to find the options for doing this in kickstart. Here is my current firewall line:
I have tried just adding --https but it errors on me. Am I just missing the keywords to set these up? I have looked but i can't find keywords for any services except telnet that are not already included in my firewall line. Should i be trying to do this with iptables in post rather than in the kickstart itself?
I have a samba shared folder in my flash disk. Yesterday I installed ubuntu 11.04 and now sharing is not working any more. I do the usual procedure (that worked so far), I right click my folder > sharing options and tick "share this folder" as well as "Allow others to create and delete files in this folder" but I dont get the usual messages asking to add permissions automatically.When I try to mount my folder in another pc with linux, I get permission denied and that the folder is only readable and in another, windows cannot find the network path to my folder.My folder has about 10.000 files. asking to add permissions automaticallyI created another folder on the same flash and when I create share I get the message asking to add permissions automatically but it is not visible either. I even cant see my folder in "my places" > network, so it is not a matter of the mounting command
I'm trying to set up the following "server" system. (I say "server" because I'm really running ubuntu-desktop 10.04 LTS):
I have set up Samba and allowed guest access to my /media/Share/data using Windows 7. Everything works great, I can create folders, add files, etc. However I noticed that when I add files or folders via my mapped drive in Windows 7, it defaults to permissions that do not allow Deluge to access them. I realized that if I go back to the server and give it
Code: sudo chmod 0777 /media/Share/data/(folder or file)
Deluge can now access the files. I don't want to have to modify permissions every time I add a new torrent to Deluge's watch folder which is /media/Share/data/Torrents.
How do I configure Samba (or linux, or windows) to give rwx permissions when I add a file or torrent via windows? And vice versa, if deluge downloads a file and moves it to completed downloads (which I haven't been able to get this far yet) will I be able to access it via Windows 7?
Is there a trick to allowing a TFTP connection to create a file? I can successfully tftfp (from a cisco router) if I touch the file first, but otherwise, (/tftpboot has been chmoded to 777) I get [TFTP: error code 2 received - 20334]
I seem to be having an issue with iptables, every so often the server starts loosing packets and then goes off completley, if I manage to login to ssh I can stop iptables and this resolves the problem, however it keeps doing this. Is it possible to stop anything being added to iptables?
I have a CentOS V5.3 system with a single 30GB HDD having about 21 GB of free space. I added a 40 GB HDD with a single ext3 partition. After reboot, the free space still reads as 21 GB. I ran the LVM GUI, and added the volume to the LVM group 00; no change to the free space after reboot. I ran the LVM again, removed the volume from the group and created a new group for the volume; still no change after reboot. I am clearly missing a key operation.
I have a issue that could get me fired, so I would appreciate your input. My knowledge about linux is limited The company I work for has a Dell Poweredge 6850 that keeps pretty much everything (databases, websites, etc). The server had a Virtual Drive created from 2 Physical Drives. Since the HDD space was getting low, we got a new drive, inserted it, formatted and rebooted the system. But the system now refuses to start, giving an FAILED message, something related to EXT2 partition that cannot be read at /dev/hda1
I'm using rsync to create a mirror of the data files on our main server every day. I've looked at the man page, and can't see it; can I get a listing of the files that have been changed on or added to the mirror when it's completed? Can it just log what it's doing to a file?
I have a Dell precision 380 (system specs can be found here: [URL]. My system is set-up in dual boot configuration with Windows Xp x64 on one side of my HD and CentOS 5.3 (64bit) on the other. My system came with 2Gb (2 x 1Gb) of RAM and I recently wanted to upgrade. I bought 2 x 2Gb ELIXER DDR2 667Mhz RAM. I carefully added the new sticks to my motherboard, booted up windows via bios which noticed the new RAM was present. All seemed well.
However, on rebooting the system and entering the CentOS boot phase, after the boot phase (eg starting program... [ok] etc) but before the login screen my screen goes black / blank. My system has an ATI FireGL v3100 graphics card, I checked out the technical info on this and it should be ok on 64 bit linux. (See: [URL])
I've got an install of CentOS 5.3 in a VM which was installed without X or Gnome.I've added X (yum groupinstall 'X Window System') and Gnome (yum groupinstall 'GNOME Desktop Environment) and can now run startx no problem.However on boot I get a command line login rather than the graphical login screen one normally gets if Gnome is included at install time.What do I need to do to get the graphical login after boot?
I've installed CentOS 5.3 on a machine, and I need a Samba version 3.2 or higher. Since 3.4 is out, I thought I'd grab that. But, "yum list|grep samba" gives me only version 3.0.33. Is there a package of Samba I can grab that will upgrade the 3.0 installation so that I don't have two laying around? If not and I need to compile from source, do you have any suggestions for what arguments I should give configure? I'm not used to Linux coming from the BSD world
I am trying to create a Samba share on Ubuntu so that I can see it on my Windows computer but have had nothing but trouble. I've tried everything that I could find in Google but the best I can get is that my Ubuntu computer shows up as Unknown device on my Windows computer. Unfortunately, my Windows computer belongs to my company or I would just switch to Ubuntu altogether. I have posted a couple of screenshots of what I see in Windows, my GParted partitions, and the options that I have enabled for the folder I am trying to share. Below are my fstab and my samba files from Ubuntu. I am sure that this is just some rookie mistake as I am new to Ubuntu. It certainly seems that this should be easy, but I just can't get it.
i opened up my browser to surf the web and a page popped up i had never seen before.Apache 2 Test page powered by centos. Any address i put into my firefox browser won't come up and i'm stuck on this test page and,i can't locate it on my computer to remove it.How do i get rid of it and more importantly how did it get on my computer in the first place?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my sister's HPtx2000 since she isn't going to use it anymore and it worked better than I expect. The touchscreen works without any additional driver tweaking and installation <3, the wireless works fine, the sound works. I listed those because when i was installing, I was looking around at other people that did this and those were the problems they had (but those was of an old OS).
Well anyways, what I want to ask is about the stuff that doesn't work and the stuff I want to do: The buttons that flip the screen and etc doesn't work. Is there a way to map them and flip the orientation of the screen? And the other buttons too, like the media button. Is there a way to map them to open VLC or something? Does anyone know any tablet programs for Ubuntu? E.g a simple text program that can convert stuff written to neat, typed font? A way to write text into a google search bar using the stylus? And while we're on this, is there a way to map a left click on the touch screen?
In Windows, the left click could be mapped to: a). a side button of the pen, b) the top button of the pen, and c) holding the pen down onto the touchscreen. how to use Samba to access a public folder of a Windows computer? And to access the printer connect to the Windows computer? Some of the tutorials I found were only for folders and printers on the Ubuntu computer.
My network comprises three PC's .... Windows XP, Windows 98SE and Ubuntu 9.04 running SAMBA. All PC's are configured WORKGROUP=WORKGROUP. The network connection To/From XP/UBUNTU via SAMBA Shares works perfectly OK. However, despite scouring all forum information regarding changes to Win98 ENCRYPTION, (Registry change re: DWORD "EnablePlainTextPasswords"), the Win98 PC refuses to connect to UBUNTU. The UBUNTU PC can conect to all the Win98 shared folders OK. I have disabled my Linux Firewall (Firestarter), I have run SMBCLIENT to check the user password for Win98 and it is validated OK. The Win98 error message is ....
"\Inspiron 510m is not accessible. The computer or sharename could not be found. Make Sure you typed it correctly and try again."
My samba.conf file is as follows ..... Any help or assistance PLEASE !

trying to setup samba on my centos box by following the tutorial After following the setup of my smb.conf and adding the users and files as per the tutorial I come across a few problems.If I browse my home folder, music or everyone folder i get for example \sambamusic is not assessable you may not have permissions to use this network response. If i browse the apps folder I get a pop up asking for a user name and password.
I have a perfectly functional Samba file and print server. I will be adding several Window 2008 servers to serve as terminal server hosts running in virtual machines. I would like to convert my Samba server to a PDC (Primary Domain Controller) for these terminal servers to use. And leave everyone else as a work group (the current situation). I'd like to
1) use /etc/password and /etc/samba/smbpasswd as the source of the user accounts
2) limit what users the terminal servers can see based on a particular group (/etc/group)
So far I have tried the example howto's on the samba site and wound up having to restore /etc/nsswitch.conf in rescue mode.
I have re-installed our operating system (CentOS 5) ,what is the best way to restore our Samba server? Can it be as simple as copying the smb.config and smbpasswd files back into the /etc/samba directory? That's what I am hoping. If I just copy the smb.config and the smbpasswd files back to the samba directory will the machine trusts, users and passwords just work? If not, what is the proper procedure for restoring. Actually i want to make CentOS 5.3 as my Domain Controller, I want to test all Scenario in case of any disaster of DC before putting it into production environment. I have some queries as:
1. Is CentOS 5 is more stable than RHEL 5 etc.
2. How can i take back up of entire samba server if need it in case of any disaster. How can i restore it.
3. How can i use logon scripts like GPO in windows servers.
4. How can add users in samba server and linux at one time with one command.
5. tell me any Web based samba administration tool other than SWAT.
I have a freshly installed CentOS 5.4 box which I'm trying to get AD authentication working on. I have AD authentication via kerberos working for SSH, but when I try and have it work for SMB shares I'm getting an access denied error. What's even more odd is that when I tell pam to use winbind to authenticate SSH...it works just fine. Wbinfo -a username%password authenticates fine and getent passwd and group enumerates the AD users and groups ok. My smbd.log was throwing the following error "Failed to verify incoming ticket with error NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE" but has since stopped for some reason, but googling this indicated I needed re-join the machine to the domain, which I have.
I trying to Migrate NT4 Domain to Samba-3 following the example in: [URL] where they mention "This migration process makes use of Linux system tools (like useradd) to add the accounts that are migrated into the UNIX/Linux /etc/passwd and /etc/group databases. These entries must therefore be present, and correct options specified, in your smb.conf file, or else the migration does not work as it should. " how to specify these (with correct options) in the smb.conf file? what are the parameters?
I'm planning to use a virtual CentOS box for web development (to use the same software as on the real server). I configured Samba to have root guest access to /var/www/ but it doesn't let me in /var. Chmod 777 doesn't help. Nethertheless, I have full access to /sbin and /etc.
