Debian Configuration :: File Share Unavailable From A Reboot Until Restart Samba

Jul 3, 2011

I am having slight issue with setting up file sharing. I have a windows 7 pc and hp proliant microserver running. I have a raid array which I am using as a share for storing music, pictures etc. When I reboot the debian server I can't connect to the server from the windows 7 PC (I have mapped a network drive) until I go on to the server and restart samba with /etc/init.d/samba restart - then everything works fine. I can ping the server with both ip and hostname but the network drive does not connect - this is straight after a reboot. Is the /etc/init.d/samba restart doing something differently to when the server boots? I have read several posts relating to printer sharing issues which point to samba not starting before cups so I am wondering if samba is starting before some of the relevant networking services.

Debian Configuration :: Reboot Both The Server And The Client Machines Every Time Change The SAMBA Configuration?

Apr 5, 2010

I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.

My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie - Service Samba Restart

Oct 20, 2014

I've after latest jessie update a problem with service samba restart. If I use "service samba restart", there is a timeout (after long time) and error.

Output of "systemctl status samba.service":

Code:
Select all● samba.service - LSB: ensure Samba daemons are started (nmbd and smbd)
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/samba)
   Active: failed (Result: timeout) since Mo 2014-10-20 02:16:57 CEST; 7s ago
  Process: 6205 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/samba start (code=killed, signal=TERM)

Okt 20 02:16:57 server systemd[1]: samba.service start operation timed out. Terminating.
Okt 20 02:16:57 server systemd[1]: Failed to start LSB: ensure Samba daemons are started (nmbd and smbd).

[Code] ....

Whats going wrong. "service samba restart" should bring no error message if the service is not running previously.

Debian Configuration :: Accessing Samba Share From Xfce

Feb 15, 2016

I currently have a Samba share on a Debian 7 system. This share was only ever used by Windows systems on the network.

I just finished setting up a Debian 8 system with Xfce, and now I would like to connect to the share. I already installed gvfs-backends and gvfs-bin. When I go to Thunar file manager, and click browse network, I'm presented with a "Windows Network" shortcut. When clicked it says: Failed to open "Windows Network". Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory.

Debian Configuration :: Rdiff-backup On Samba Share

Mar 10, 2010

Is it possible (on lenny, in case that matters) to backup some directories with rdiff-backup, with the target being a WinXP Pro Host, i.e. the target being a SMB share? My idea is to start the XP-Box over WOL, run rdiff-backup and then shut it down using "net rpc SHUTDOWN"...

Debian Configuration :: Access Remote Samba Share Gigolo Way

Jul 18, 2011

I've got a fresh Wheezy/Xfce install.I'm trying to access a remote samba share the gigolo way. It is an external USB hard drive connected to my router. I can access it read only using the following URL with Icedove: smb://bbox/

Anyway, this is just to try and give might-be-useful information, but ultimately, I don't really want to use fusesmb. I would rather have the gigolo way working, allowing local network shares browsing, auto-connect, etc.

Debian Configuration :: Samba Share No Longer Auto-mounting In Wheezy

I've tried over options, as well, but it isn't automatically mounting. Any suggestions (including where to file a bug report)?

Debian Configuration :: Slow Transfer Speeds On SAMBA Share But Gigabit Speed On SCP

Feb 12, 2016

I'm having a strange problem with data transfers between systems. I have a file server + my desktop. Both are running Debian 8.3. I have a samba share running on the file server and I mount the shares on my desktop on boot via /etc/fstab

When I copy a file using the nautilus from my home folder (on my HDD) on my desktop to the mounted network location, my transfers start out at gigabit speeds 80MB/s-90MB/s for a couple seconds and then drop down to about 8MB/s

But when I terminate the transfer and then use scp to transfer the same file, I get consistent gigabit speed throughout the transfer. I am not sure what is going on.

Networking :: Samba Needs Restart On Reboot?

Jan 20, 2011

running Ubuntu 10.10, generally with no probs. After the upgrade to 10.10, and several updates, I still have a problem. Namely when ever I re-boot, which now more often than I'd like, due to a machine failure. It starts, but accross the network can't "see" tux, pop to root term, and

Quote:

root@tux:~# stop smbd
smbd stop/waiting
root@tux:~# start smbd
smbd start/running, process 3682

and that fixes it. Whats wrong with the startup script?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Copy A File From SMB Share To The Local File System

Aug 17, 2015

There is this bug in the latest version of Ubuntu, which is also Jessie, which is:

Can't copy a file from SMB share to the local file system: Software caused connection abort

The problem, apparently, is that newer versions of Samba hit servers with multiple requests at the same time, and for some reason the Zyxel and Iomega boxes can't handle this. The best solution they've come up with is to modify the smb.conf file on your server to include this setting: "max mux = 1".

Here is the reference material on this bug: [URL] ....

People who develop samba have fixed it in the latest version but neither the ubuntu nor Debian have released the fixed version of nautilus, as of yet. Here, is the reference: [URL] ....

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share Requires Unmount/Remount After Restart

Aug 4, 2011

I recently built a computer for a friend that is only going to be used to run a network share.

The problem I am running into is that whenever the computer restarts the share, while visible, cannot be accessed by the two Windows 7 laptops in the house.

If I run 'sudo umount /media/storage' followed by 'sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/storage' the once visible but inaccessible share is now accessible.

I do not understand why this would be. I have added the line 'usershare owner only = false' to my smb.conf file.

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Add The Subtitle File

Aug 1, 2011

I'm using Xfce 4.8, which now provides built-in samba browing in thunar. This works like a charm. I can browse a samba share (external HD connecter to router via USB). Yet it appears to me now that the support is limited to thunar. I mean double clicking on a file allows me to open/edit that file if and only if the software itself has samba support. In practice, double-clicking on a movie opens it with vlc thanks to vlc's own smb support. Even then, I can't find a way to add the subtitle file. I reckon that to use the share transparently, I would need to mount it the "mount" way. Either on a mount point like /mnt/hard_drive or something like .gvfs/hard_drive.

Is my understanding correct ? Is that my only option? Considering the disk won't be switched on at startup, fstab is not the solution. Would gigolo be the right choice? I spent some time trying gigolo a few days ago, following an easy tuto found on the web and it didn't work as expected. If needed I could give it another try.

Debian Configuration :: How To Configure Samba For A Stripped Down File Server

I have tried "sudo systemctl unmask samba.service". I receive no errors however it does not actually unmask. I can't find anything online regarding a service stuck on masked status.

Debian Configuration :: File Access Logs - Functionality Like Already Built Into Samba?

Sep 7, 2010

wants some sort of logging capability on the system. to have a log of every change to every file, although that might be a bit unwieldy. perhaps a simpler compromise would be some way of monitoring a few specific folders, and tracking all changes to them, including the user that did so. Particularly important is that it should be possible to work with access through samba, as we want to track what users on the network are creating or changing files. Is there functionality like this already built into debian or samba? is there a useful additional app to gather this information? or am I going to need to be grep'ing log files to present something useable?

The problem is no matter what I do I can not seam to browse onto it or even type in direct share locations....

EG: //Zbox/HDMedia

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.10 - Samba Restart (File Not There)

Oct 13, 2010

I recently installed Server 10.10 64-bit. After installation, I set up my config file (/etc/samba/smb.conf), and tried to restart Samba:
Code:
/etc/init.d/samba restart
There was nothing to restart though - the file /etc/init.d/samba wasn't there!
Purged the package and re-installed. Tried reformatting and adding Samba as a pre-installed package. Trying to find the server guide for 10.10, but no dice. Did something change for Samba in 10.10?

Debian Hardware :: Reboot / Restart Instead Of Shutdown (wheezy)

Oct 16, 2012

Come across with a situation where all methods of shutdown result in a restart/reboot? I've tried commands:

- shutdown
- halt
- poweroff

.. with various parameters, nothing works. The laptop seems to power off, but after a sec it restarts/reboots. I've Googled high and low, but there's very little on this topic. Maybe it is specific to the current kernel in Wheezy? I'm not suspecting a harware failure, since this was not happening with Windows installed.

This happens on me with Wheezy on a HP Elitebook 8530w.

Server :: Samba Share File Permissions?

Mar 19, 2011

I have set up a computer to use as a file server using Samba. I attached a 1TB hard disk to it and had the system to mount it automatically. I have 4 user accounts which will be able to access this network share. An administrator account is called "server". I'll call them user1, user2 user4. This is the folder structure:

+-/mnt/FILES
+-BACKUP
backup files (accessible only to "server" user)
+-MUSIC
music1.mp3 (read only files for all users)
music2.mp3

[Code]...

I don't know which groups I should create. I'm having a hard time setting file/folder permissions. And I wanted to know how to set Samba so that it won't ask for a password when accessing public/group files, but asks for it when accessing private user files.

Ubuntu :: Pdflatex File Not Found On Samba Share

May 31, 2011

I am trying to compile a LaTeX document using pdflatex on a CIFS/SAMBA network share.

Then if I copy it on to the network share and run pdflatex foo.tex I get:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `foo.tex'.
<*> foo.tex

I can view the file with less, so it's not permissions.

My fstab mounts the drive as:

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share With Login And File Permisions?

Feb 23, 2010

I have a folder on my linux server and I want to be able to share files to windows users in this manner :

1. Require login with username and password when accessing file share.

2. Files created by logged in users become owned by them (I can create local accounts for this matter to all the users).

3. Depending on permissions files created by other users can be read only by logged in user.

I thought of going in samba way for this but I'm not familiar with samba enough to make something like this. If any other sharing method is required I can go for it since I'm doing this from a scratch but that only if its not possible with samba.

General :: Samba 3.2.5. PDC Authentication And Share - On Debian ?

I have a Debian 5.0 system, fresh install, updated with aptitude. Now i'm using vmware to test my system, but the 'real' system, is a small network with around 30 workstations connected in a cisco switch + router. So i test the configuration at home, and when it's working and done, i will copy it to the real network, because i don't want to mess it up

So i installed the newest samba to act as a PDC. You can read my configuration in the following lines:

Global Settings

Share Definitions

I added root with 'smbpasswd -a root' command. When I try to connect to the domain with a Windows XP, it says: ' The username cannot be found '
