i installed Samba on my Fedora, have created couple of Share directories and assigned users accordingly, that part is apsolutly fine and working without any problem, but now the next step is i want to assign the quota limits to users to save the disk space,
At my office we are having a samba sever, staff will access their respective folder from their Windows XP systems. I wish to track all user access activity like file creation, modification, deletion and etc. I tried smbstatus -v, from the output I am not able to guess what the user done. I am giving some of the results I get please help me or you can suggest best way to get access log.

All of sudden a working SAMBA server not allowing to login and deny permission for users to access it shares. When I check I checked the server directory rights are same, find no changes. and smb.conf is also same. when I checked closely I found the following error.
1. smbd.log show the following messages

want to made 2 users in samba by which windows machine we access share, say user1 has read,execute permission, user2 has read write delete update full permission. we have done user1 configuration as premia user. we need your guideline for user2
we change the smb.conf file # less /etc/samba/smb.conf [global]
I work as an system administrator for AIX and Linux servers. We have an FTP server running in Linux which has shared folders to Windows domain using Samba. The new requirement is to map users created to Linux machine to Windows users in such a way that, when a user logins into Windows machine with an ID say "X123" in domain "TEST", his access control to the samba shares should reflect based on the same user ID created in Linux machine.(FYI. Both the Windows and LINUX machines are in same network and domain). Please let me know the step by step procedure to configure Linux machine (smb.conf entries or any new file to be created for user mapping) to identify Windows user Login and provide access restrictions accordingly.
Does anyone know of a way of limiting a print-job size from samba?
I know how to limit a print job size form cups, and how to require x amount of free space before accepting a job. I've even dug up how to require x amount of free space for samba to accept a print job, but I can't see how to limit samba to only certain sized jobs.
Someone tried to print a >1G file to my print-server this morning, causing me to have a less relaxed Monday than I had hoped. Because it ran out of space before spooling, it was never limited by cups. Because I had to get rid of it ASAP so people could get work done, I have no idea who's it was, or where it came from. Scouring logs didn't give me any good leads either.
If I want to add Windows & Mac users as Samba users, must I first add them all as Ubuntu users? If so, since none of the other users will actually be working on the Ubuntu Server, how do I disable the other non-admin users on the Ubuntu Server login screen. I am using Webmin to administer some server settings, and command line for others.
I'm trying to set up quota limit in samba-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1 in CentOS 5.5, by means of the module vfs objects. In the samba howto  I found a very brief explanation, but it isn't working for me. The basic idea is to setup a user called 'quota2g' (uid 499) and setup the [homes] share, as it comes by default, to enforce the quota on each user share.quota2g:x:499:499:User quota 2GB:/home/quota2g:/bin/bash
On a small network i have 3 WinXP computers and i've just installed a two new ones with Win7 pre-installed. As server i'm running OpenSuSE 10.3 and Samba with only one share. As i mount it to WinXP computers all get same volume serial number:
V:>dir Volume in drive V is AppDrive Volume Serial Number is 8CD5-975C
...and all Win7 computers get a diffrent one:
V:>dir Volume in drive V is AppDrive Volume Serial Number is A0D3-975C
We use application witch somehow only works when one/same volume serial number on a mounted drive is used.
I've done all this config [URL] This config for the "foo" folder:
("pruebas" its a user)
[foo] path = /home/pruebas ready only = no guest ok = yes
I have the [HOME] code too, its everything fine with it, and I cant connect with another user ("alfredo") from Red Hat to Windows XP with no problem... but as soon as I double click in "foo" directory, appears this:
Already tried to disconnect from windows the directories with "net use" but it doesn't work
When I try to add a user to samba (using the GNOME UI) in F12, after enter all the information and click OK.it will just hang for about 20 seconds, and then do nothing. Window is still there, I click OK again and same thing.heres the steps i followed:
1) click preferences, Samba Users... 2) click add user 3) select user "joe" (example) from drop down of users 4) enter "joe" windows user name 5) enter password for joe (same as user password) 6) click OK 7) hangs 20 seconds then nothing.window is still there.click OK again same thing no user added
I have two ubuntu 10.04 64-bit servers running samba (3.4.7) and openLDAP (2.4.21). The LDAP directory is successfully replicating between the two servers. These servers also serve as LDAP servers for sudo, pam, nss, and other services for a dozen servers without issues. The BDC samba is configured to use itself for LDAP. I connected to the BDC using the samba ldap credentials and verified I could a) see the Computer object b) read NTPassword and LMPassword. The workstations can authenticate to the domain successfully against the PDC. If a workstation boots and connects to the BDC, they login fails with:
Code: [2010/07/18 11:46:23, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:336(get_md4pw) get_md4pw: Workstation MACHINENAME$: no account in domain [2010/07/18 11:46:23, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:584(_netr_ServerAuthenticate3) _netr_ServerAuthenticate3: failed to get machine password for account MACHINENAME$: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

If I try to connect to my Samba server with one user ("alex"), everything works fine. If I try to connect with a different user, ("guest"), I receive the error:
Code: Retrying with upper case share name mount error(6): No such device or address Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) Both users have been added as samba users using `smbpasswd -a` These are the settings I've added in my smb.conf file:
I want to set a log off script for samba domain users. Actually I am facing a huge temp files related problem. So I want to set a batch file which will run when domain user log off. When user logout then batch file run and delete all temp files.I have already set batch file local group policy and it works for me, but I wants to set it from server side.
I have a Samba server running on a Red Hat 5.6 system that provides a large file share to both UNIX/Linux and Windows environments. There are two user accounts that can access this file share:
foo - has full access to ALL files in the file share bar - has full access to just one directory tree ('dog') in the file share
I created two different mount points, one for foo and one for bar. I've set all of the files in 'dog' to be owned by bar, which works fine for the bar account. The problem is, the foo account can't access the files. Also, foo and bar need to be able to share files, by placing them in the 'dog' directory tree.
I'm not sure how to set this up using standard Samba tools. I've looked in the Samba GUI available with Red Hat, and don't see anything helpful there regarding my need. I've Google'd and have seen references to using ACLs with Samba. Is this the right solution to this problem, or have I missed something?
I'm trying to get samba working on a debian/xebian box to use as a fileserver. I have a HTPC which is win 7 and a laptop which is OS X. I've installed SWAT and Samba to manage the whole settings. I'm trying to get it setup so that there's a user which has access to my ~/ and a guest user which just has read access to ~/Media/ so that the Media centre can read all the files from it without having to login.
The problem is when I have map to guest set as NEVER I can access the samba ~/ and I'm asked for a username and password which I login with fine and can access the files on both share ~/ and ~/Media. However when I set the map to guest to bad user or bad password I can access the share for ~/Media. But when I try and access the share ~/ I don't get any login box and I immediately get the error "Can't access share permission denied" or an error along those lines.
Here's my /etc/samba/smb.conf # Samba config file created using SWAT # from 192.168.1.65 (192.168.1.65) # Date: 2010/07/10 20:39:16
# Global parameters [global] workgroup = MS_HOME server string = %h server (Samba %v) obey pam restrictions = Yes passdb backend = tdbsam, guest passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *EntersnewsUNIXspassword:* %n .....
How to get it working so I can have a guest share for my HTPC and a logged in user for my private files?
How can I set permissions for users within the share? Example: I have a share called Programming and some user can create folders within it most others can not, can read the documents. How do I set permissions?
I have configure few folders access by 3 users, In common folder only users that create that document can do changes. The rest of the users can only read the file but can not do changes. Ownership of the folder is admin, group is sambashare which already have the access create and delete files. All the 3 users already in sambashare main group, and they only can edit the file that they copy or create to the common folder .........
All I want is a simple Samba installation that anonymous users/guests can access. I have modified the smb.conf file so much using 'tips' that should enable a simple folder share. Nothing works. If I share the folder using Nautilus share then the folder is accessible without any credentials from only Win7 and android ES File Explorer. XP can't see the folder, nor can any other linux device. I want to switch to linux as a main OS but without shares it's not practical. Does anyone have a stripped down smb.conf which provides guest access to a single folder?

how to configure samba share that users from ip pool (for example 192.168.1.200-210) have accest without login and rest users form ip pool (192.168.1.2-199 and 192.168.1.211-254) have to past autorization.
