Fedora Servers :: Samba Messages In Syslog - Allow Logging To The Standard Samba Logfiles
Mar 18, 2010
I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.
For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.
I'm looking into setting up logging for Samba that logs every file downloaded, uploaded, renamed, deleted, etc, etc. It's currently working, but I'm trying to get it to output to /var/log/samba/audit.log and it's still outputtin Here are my current settings:
I�m looking into preventing the samba messages from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages).I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but messages are still appearing�suppress logging or reconfiguremba such that the �nmbd� and �winbindd� messages do not appear in /var/log/messages
I'm guessing its possible but I can't seem to find any documentation on how to do this.I've tried playing with entries at the top of my syslog.conf file like:
*.* @172.20.10.1 # 1 server, works file *.* @172.20.10.1,172.20.20.11 # doesn't work *.* @172.20.10.1 172.20.20.11 # nor this *.* @172.20.10.1,@172.20.20.11 # nor this *.* @172.20.10.1 @172.20.20.11 # nor this
On this Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS server, I want to log the messages from a Linksys router. So I made this change to "/etc/init.d/sysklogd" SYSLOGD="-r" Then in "/etc/syslog.conf" I added the following to the top of the file: Code: if $fromhost isequal 'Linksys' then /var/log/Linksys.log & ~
Then I rebooted the server. But there is no "/var/log/Linksys.log" file.
I have a folder in a Samba shared drive which I've done the following with (in Unix):
1. Changed owner to Administrator. 2. Changed group owner to Domain Users. 3. Granted 700 (drwx------) permissions 4. Connected to Windows server via remote desktop 5. Mapped the Samba network drive as administrator 6. Right clicked on the folder > properties > security tab > advanced, and added one person (let's call him Joe) who has rwx access on that folder and everything in it. (along with administrator) 7. Went back to check Unix permissions on the folder and found that they had changed from drwx to drwxrwx+. Same goes for everything inside it. 8. Checked the ACL.
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
I don't know if this is possible... I want that only some of a Windows Domain(Samba) users can to logging in a machine.For example: The user Peter of the domain WORKSPACE can connect to the PC1, but the user Charly of the domain WORKSPACE can not connect to the PC1. How I can implement this?
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 a samba file server that has Windows XP machines connecting to it. Fairly regularly, I get messages such as the following. Are these anything to worry about? What do they mean? Nobody ever has problems with disconnecting or losing their mapped drive or their desktop shortcut not working.

Automatic upgrade ver 10 to 11 Have a large drive that is shared over Windows domain.This was renamed from /media/drive/ to /media/7534179143A7E34 All the users in Windows domain can not access the files or folders on the Fedora server - Samba setup. Why was the deive renamed and is this causing problems. I reshared the folders on the drive but still cannot access the drive. Where do I start to fault find please.
I'm having some troubles with my samba shares on a fresh install of Fedora 10 x86_64 on my laptop. The laptop has only the KDE Desktop environment. I'm trying to share between this computer and my homebrew server via a wrt54g linksys router running DD-WRT firmware. The server is running Fedora 9 i386.
The shares on the server can be read by the laptop, and I have been consistently able to mount the server shares on the laptop using mount.cifs, but only when the firewall on the server is down. Shares are only visible between the machines when the firewall is down on the machine containing the share. I set up the shares using the system-config-samba tool, and the firewalls are both set to allow samba server and samba client. I can typically see the laptop from the server, but not the shares, and only when the laptop firewall is disabled. I can access the Laptop shares from the laptop. When trying to mount the laptop shares on the server, a warning message stating that the mount failed appears. Shares show up as correct in both the system-config-samba tool, and the KDE sharing tools. The share shows a "shared" icon in the dolphin browser.
From all that I know, the shares should work perfectly. I've searched the web, perused the man pages and how-to's, and combed through the forums, and everything I've found tells me that the shares should be working. Since they are not working, it leads me to believe that I must have made a mistake someone and not noticed it.
I've read through these pages [URL] but can't seem to get Samba server working. I am using Gnome and I go to System - Administration - Services
In there I can see smb and nmb. Both are enabled, but both have a status of unknown. I can't seem to start or stop either of them. I can just enable or disable them. I've tried using the gui, as well as command line.
I'd really like to get this going as I'd like to copy files from my XP Pro box to my Linux box (F9). I have WinSCP, but am having permission issues and I can only copy to a folder on my desktop on the Linux box (I'd like to get this fixed too, but that's a different thread at a later time)
I have it set right now to be open so that there's no need to type in username and password information. It works great. I can type \*IP Address* on my WinXP laptop while on the network, and it brings me to the Public folder that I'm trying to share. But, when I click on the folder to open it up, it just sits there and eventually will give a userid/password prompt or will give me an access denied error.
When i try to create a new samba user the computer locks up and i get this message. can someone help me out. TB08997608 connection.py:630:call_blockingBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

I have been trying to set up a small file server on Fedora 15 using Samba. When I try to connect from WindowsXP it says the network is not accessible. I have tried to make multiple changes to the settings but to no avail.
I can't seem to figure this out. I've got a DOS disc that loads up a network share (my Samba server running Fedora 10) - connects to the share, runs ghost.exe from there. Everything runs perfect for about 2 minutes, then my thoroughput drops to 0. Sometimes, after about 40 seconds, it'll resume imaging. Most of the time, after about 40 seconds, Ghost gives me an error stating 'not enough free space on the destination disc' - This is a raid 5 3TB array that I'm ghosting a 6.0Gb HDD to! lanman auth = yes and client lanman auth = yes are already set up - I can connect fine, but it's almost like Samba hiccups and drops my connection!
I have a server which currently has a samba share for a printer and my home directory. Both have been working fine for a while now. I have a drobo (which is like a little USB RAID machine) connect via USB to the linux box. While trying to share it via samba I get weird messages from my windows machine (see screenshot). I have tried to share multiple folders on this drobo and no luck, all the same result.
I also tried a symbolic link, no good.
