Networking :: Can't View List Of Shares In Nautilus But Can Browse Shares Directly?
Dec 11, 2008
I run opensuse 11 at work. I'm trying to see the list of shares on a "server" that is running windows server 2000. If I try smb://server, it doesn't show any shares, but I can browse directly to it such as smb://server/share1. If I use smbclient, it returns the list of shares correctly. I guess I just don't understand why smbclient shows the list of shared folders, but nautilus cannot.
clean install of Slackware 13.1 64-bit. From day 1 I have been unable to browse Samba servers and shares on my home network. NFS, FTP, SSH, etc all seem to be working fine. I've been updating it regularly in case this was a bug, but I'm not so sure any more.
Reboot in WinXP sp3, I can browse fine. My wife's Win7 laptop works fine. My old Slack 12.2 system worked fine. I have not made any changes to the network other than adding this computer to the mix.

After running updates earlier today, none of my Ubuntu-based computers can connect to any Windows shares in Nautilus.Samba is running and working fine; I can access the shares via web browser using smb://hostname, so I know it's not an issue with Samba not working.Also, the two Windows-based computers can see each others' shares, including printers.
I'st just installed 10.10 on Virtual Box. I'm trying to map some windows drives (On the host) permanently. Using Places->Connect To Server etc I can connect to my windows box no problem and see the directories etc in Nautilus (2.32.0) all ok.But rebooting the system results in my having to log in again - I've looked atis that the only what to get this to work permanently?Also, and more importantly K-Develop (And possibly others) can't see this mapped drive when I want to open a file from it? What would be the problem here?
I have been quite frustrated searching around for others that have had the same problems as I have had an what solutions are available. It appears there is a plethora of issues surrounding file sharing between Ubuntu and Windows machines; but things work prefectly for some and not for others.
The specific problem that I have having is that I cannot access file shares from any of the Windows 7 machines on my network. I use a Windows 7 machine for the main source of files that I like to access from other machines on the network. I do not normally access it from other Windows 7 machines through a Homegroup (I have removed the Windows 7 PC from the homegroup while trying to figure this out as well) - I normally just browse the network via the Windows 7 machine.
Here is what I'm doing (and seeing):
1. Click on home folder icon on Unity's launcher
2. Click "Network" in the sidepane
3. Wait a long time (like 40 seconds or so). "Windows Network" is the only folder/icon showing up in the "Network" folder once it shows anything.
4. Click on "Windows Network"
5. "WORKGROUP" shows up
6. Click on it
7. There is a delay with no visual indication (other than nothing happens and clicking in that window does nothing) and then I see "Opening "WORKGROUP" - Click cancel to stop"
8. See "Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server"
I ran 'smbtree -N' and see a line for the PC I'm currently using, plus I see the following line for the other two PCs in the workgroup "WORKGROUP" (name is different for other PC):
Code: \MEDIA-PC cli_start_connection: failed to connect to MEDIA-PC<20> (0.0.0.0). Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
I've seen guides to auto-mount certain shares from other projects to specific locations, and I'll probably do this at some point, but I really want to be able to browse the other machines shares.
Code: session request to 192.168.1.3 failed (Called name not present) session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
I am working as a Linux administrator in a very small data centre with 5 servers with following routine tasks.
1. Managing SAMBA shares and giving user specific access for the shares. 2. Scheduling backup of some mount points with rsycn to store data in remote hard disk 3. User and group administration, with sudo access. 4. Creating and Managing Xen Virtual machines and giving access to other project teams. 5. Automating some tasks with Shell Scripting. 6. Managing FTP server for user uploads.
I have practiced a lot in my home laptop without RHEL training, Cleared RHCE and LPIC1. I want to do some advanced system admin tasks, but do not have option in my current data centre. With Above skills is it possible to get a job ?
While in a web browser I'm trying to attach a file which resides on a network location. The file dialogue doesn't allow me to browse any network location. I've mounted the volume and added locations to favorites. I've also tried entering an smb:// path. This only happens in browsers, both FFnd Chrome, some examples would be attaching a file in gmail, yousendit, etc. I can browse and work off the network normally in desktop apps.

It's been awhile since I posted anything which is a good sign my install has been working well and I have been able to handle most everything. However, I'm not able to handle this issue. I recently installed F11 and everything went well. But, when trying to see my other computers on the local network, I cannot. I receive this error message: Unable to mount location Failed to receive shared list from server. I understand the message as it is obvious, but do not know how to fix it.
I have had server running for over a year and have run into my first major issue. I am no longer able to browse to the server by hostname or IP and view all available Samba shares. I receive a windows popup informing me I do not have permissions However I am still able to browse to the shares themselves \hostnameshare.I am currently assuming this is an issue with the config of the samba share module/
I just installed a F12 server at home, replacing a FC9 server that ran samba to share media files. I had no problems connecting to samba on FC9 (the version escapes me, sorry) however Win7 seems to be fighting the F12 samba (v3.4.7) trying to do the same thing. I create a directory share, it shows up in windows explorer, but when I try and open it win7 tells me I dont have rights to it.
I created a printer share via samba, and successfully connected to it from win7 and use it as my default printer, and that works OK. I know win7 uses smb2 as its samba protocol, and that might be some of the problem (or all of it), but I'm not sure. I also have googled and saw that people have had had issues with samba as their domain controller while trying to join win7 into the domain, however I do not use win7 as a pdc at all. The solution for this seems to be registry hacks, but I am not sure they apply to me as I haven't seen anyone correlate it. Tailing the logs, this is what I see when I try and explore the file share from win7:
Code: [2010/04/26 13:09:56, 1] smbd/notify_inotify.c:421(inotify_watch) inotify_add_watch returned Permission denied
Now I have edited smb.conf manually in the past but to try anything I've even played with webmin to see all the options I might be missing, still my conf is fairly simple:
I see the movies share in win7, but it doesn't let me in. I tried disabling requiring 128bit encryption for NTLM as one suggestion but that didn't work. Also changing local security policies to send LM & NTLM responses, and that didn't work.
I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS I have installed Boxee on it that is all and I am trying to set it up as a Samba Server. I have followed the instructions on following page:[URL]..On the box that I am trying to setup as a Samba Server using Nautilus I can view the shares no problem. On another Ubuntu box no such luck. I can get too Windows Network and I can see my workgroup. When I try and open the workgroup I get the following dialogue box for some time: Opening "WORKGROUP". You can stop this operation by clicking cancel. And then this error dialogue box:
Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server I have spent sometime trying to resolve this myself but have had little luck. As far as I know I have no firewalls in place; Ubuntu does not have one by default is that correct? At this time I don't have a Windows computer to try to connect too the server at this time, but plan to in the future that is why I want to use Samba.
I am connecting the two boxes with an D-Link DIR-825 router; both boxes are on the same subnet. Are there settings in the router that could be affecting this?
Having a bit of a minor issue with samba on Opensuse 11.4 64 bit. My problem is that I can't view my samba shares in Dolphin although I know they are there. If I bring up dolphin using the Opensuse shortcuts to samba I get this
My computers / drives attached to my network should be viewable here yet they are not. However, if I type in the address directly I can view and access my shares.e.g.
Here is a copy of my smb.conf
Code: [global] workgroup = farcusnet netbios name = ThinkPad passdb backend = tdbsam name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins printing = cups
Ok, what I am trying to do is share a folder with the "share" properties in nautilus. The folder had a few subfolders and a few symlinks. The share is readonly with guest access(as set up by the nautilus properties window). It successfully shares the folder and subfolders, but does not share the symlinked folders (I should mention the symlinks are to other devices, but same owners). Nautilus is using samba to share, so I checked my ~/.samba/smb.conf and added
Code: follow symlinks = yes wide symlinks = yes
also noting that there was no actual entry for the share here... It turns out the shares are generated in /var/lib/samba/usershares/ so i added the link permissions to the file there (which looks like a regular samba share), and still no luck.
I am in the process of migrating my small workplace to a basic spin i've created of f14. Everything is suave but some file browser windows eg: file upload in gmail, hotmail etc, does not show my samba shortcuts i've created nor even the option to browse the network in the "places" section. It shows other locally created shortcuts but no samba ones. Just to test it, even creating an ftp:// shoftcut yeilds no dice. I had a quick search through the forums and I couldn't find anything. I have a feeling this has an easy solution that my inferior brain cannot comprehend! Loving F14 on my macbook pro and so are my employees in my office! Feels much less bloated than Ubuntu IMHO.
I'm running 64 bit Lucid on a HTPC that is networked with a Windows 7 64 bit laptop. Up until this morning, sharing media between these two worked fine. When I attempted to connect through Rhythmbox to play music, the computer couldn't find the files. I attempted to access the network through Nautilus and it was unable to mount the location. So I tried the Create Launcher command and created a link of the network on the desktop. I was prompted to login and it worked perfectly This has happened once before and the only way to fix it was to reinstall Ubuntu.I would very much like to avoid that if possible as the system is setup perfectly.
I wouldn't bother with the issue if it didn't prevent me from adding my music files to Rhythmbox. I have run findsmb as well as smbtree. Smbtree returned nothing and findsmb had a dotted line with nothing underneath. Nothing has been removed. I did install security updates this morning, but since it has happened before, I am more inclined to thing it is a bug or conflict somewhere.
I'm evaluating OpenSUSE and have installed 11.3 with Gnome (from the latest liveCD) and have it all running fine in a VM at the moment. We are looking at using it for an iSCSI/NFS/Samba server and have it allrunning and it is all configurable from Yast. However I can't seem to get Nautilus to play ball and allow sharing of Samba/NFS shares under folder properties (I'm fairly positive I've done this fine in Ubuntu). All I ever get is Usershare/Gnome sharing (which I believe is Webdav).
I must say I am so impressed with OpenSUSE, the partition manager is just a dream to use and everything works really well it would just be really nice to be able to share NFS/Samaba shares from the file manager. There doesn't seem to be any other file managers in the repositories so I'm a bit stuck now.
I'm successfully connecting to my Vista desktop via my laptop running MM;I can view my shares but not all my data. All top level shares seem to be visible, it's when I go deeper that I notice not everything is showing up. The folders are accessible if I type the full path, and then again I have the same issue once I'm inside that folder where not all data is visible.
In Nautilus setting: Edit>Pref>Preview Tab.I set preview for all files under 4GB which is the upper limit I can set.This made more files visible but not everything.I attempted to divide the directories in order to halve the size of the folders, this helped but not completely. The directories contain movie and picture files. The picture files are easier to divide more equitably between folders, but the movies being so large, managing folders sizes in that way doesn't help. I really don't want to divide my files according to this problem anyway. Sorting does not affect which folders and files are shown. Nothing is hidden, options to show hidden files on amd off, no help.
I am giving 10.04RC a try instead of Windows 7, so far so good. I can connect to my network shares fine using "Connect to a Server" & bookmark with the file browser, however when I use OpenOffice writer Spreadsheet to open/save files the shares disappear in the"Open/Places". Is this a bug in Ubuntu or Open Office? Is there an update/fix?
I like view file listings in Nautilus in the List View. By default the "Location" column is not visible and I have to set it to visible through "View -> Visible Columns" each time. Is there anyway to make the change permanent?
Just wondering if it's possible to change the size of icons when Nautilus is in List View. I tried playing around with gtk-icon-sizes in the gtkrc file of my theme, but there doesn't seem to be a setting for it there. I could just zoom in/out, but when I have the icons the size I want them to be, the text is too small (see attachment).
So I've been trying to get my windows C: and D: partitions (mounted to /windows/C and /windows/D respectively) to show along side "Filesystem" and "Home Folder" in tree view on the left panel in Nautilus.
I know I can drag and drop any folder under the Places view mode, but I never use Places and prefer Tree view mode.
I'm just curious as to if anybody has figured out a way to hack the ability to add a background and/or pattern for Nautilus while in List view. As it stands now, it won't work while in List view. Sadly, that's the only view I ever use, and so I always have the boring white background. I would love a brushed metal look or something.
I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution? (Using GNOME nautilus 2.30.1)
both are running 9.04i have samba installed on both, each computer can ping the other, they each have a folder that is being shared, and they each can see a third computer that has windowsxp on it. however, they cannot see each other.not really sure what is going on.went to places/network and nothing shows up except the windowsorkgroup/computer.
I'm having a bit of an issue. I have 7 HDD's shared over Samba from a Ubuntu 9.10 server. I'm having trouble getting access to them on all my pc's except for 2(out of the 4). On all the pc"s I get this when I type this command smbtree,
WORKGROUP \UNIVERSE universe server (Samba, Ubuntu) cli_start_connection: failed to connect to UNIVERSE<20> (0.0.0.0). Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
