Networking :: Configure Nfs Mount Disk To Samba Share For Windows Client ?
Nov 8, 2010
I am not able to configure nfs mounted disk for shareing samba. i have a server X. which configure samba for windows XP client this is done. now i have export X server samba share disk to mount Y server using nfs. this is mount and ok. but i don't share this disk using Y server samba configure.
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I'm trying to set up a VPN connection between our CentOS 5.3 server at work and my bosses XP computer at home. At this point, we are kinda locked into Quickbooks. I'm testing the connection from my XP boot at home to see if it works. I can log into our servicemanuals easily enough from XP at home however, the windows takes forever to update. I have the Samba server only listening on port 445 because is seems to work more efficiently at work. I connect to the Samba shares via linux from home and everything works well but, when I try to do anything with the shares from Windows client at home, it's very slow!
I'm thinking that it must have something either to do with the Windows OpenVPN client or the client.conf file. Is there anything I should look at in the .conf file for answers?
i hav configured samba share in RHEL 5.4 , it can be accessable from other linux machine but i want to access it from windows machine, how can i do it? i also want want to know that in RHEL my partitions are in ext3 format, so how can windows can detect this partition, Is samba share is independent of filesystem on either machines
case2:--- i hav configured samba on windows server 2008 , how can i mount it on linux machine
Start>Run>\192.168.0.1storage gives me "The specified network password is not correct." It lists my domain as "ANTEC" which is the name of my computer, though I've changed the workgroup to WELLS. I've run:
Client OS :- Windows XP Server OS :- Centos 5.4 Service :- samba or smb
Actually i want to take a back of windows xp's users data which on d: or etc and that backup i want to store in samba share which i made on my centos 5.4 . To do this we need to mount samba share as local drive then any script or any software can detect that share easily in that drive.
I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
I just set up an ubuntu 9.10 server (no desktop environment, command line only) and I'm unable to see my samba share. I followed these instructions. Here are the relevant parts of my smb.conf file: Quote:
workgroup = JASONGROUP # I un-commented this security = user
What I am tring to do is give all users of group users rwe any files/directories of a samba share execpt for the top level.Top Level cotains a number of folders and a readme file and should be r-eSublevel should be rwe including files/dir they did not create.I'm am familure with chmod/chgrp but not sure how to do this.
ServerA has an NFS Mount to ServerB at mount point /home/qlogger/logs
I can cd to /home/qlogger/logs on ServerA and see the contents as they would be on ServerB (NFS Working with proper permissions rw).
I have a samba share setup on ServerA to share the NFS Mounted Directory (/home/qlogger/logs)
I connect with my windows host and am able to view the files and folders. I can create folders just fine however; when I go to copy a file from the windows machine to the samba share I receive a message saying the file is locked.
I have disabled oplocks in samba and the problem still persists.
I have been using Ubuntu sense about 6.10 and never had to network with a Windows computer before. I have a decent understanding of Linux itself but I am having issues with this samba client. I have a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10 and am trying to use samba to access my shares on a Windows XP(SP3) computer. I am on the network just fine, and all the computers on the network have static IP addresses. When I go to Places->Network->Windows Network I see the "TITANNET" workgroup, (Even before I changed my workgroup to "TITANNET" in the smb.conf file.), but when I try to access it I get this error:
Code: Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server.
P.S. I tried using /etc/init.d/samba restart but it did not work, I am not sure I am even running the samba server. (Well, it is obvious I am not, what I really mean is what am I running to (not =D)access the shares on my Windows PC.) P.S. I know that this has probably been posted before. I have searched and searched, I am about 1.5 pots of coffee and 4 hours into this.
I am trying to mount a file server directory on a client machine. I tried using NFS, but could not mount the share on the client. Several respobses were given to a post on this problem. but I still was not able mount the NFS share. I decided to try instead to mount the directory as a Samba share because I can already access it using Samba from windows, or from KDE or Gnome using smb://fileserver as a desktop location icon URL. When I try to mount the Samba share I get error messages that nearly identical those that occurred with NFS. . Here are some of the setup parameters
CentOS 5.4 on client and server behind a D-Link router server IP: 192.168.0.44 (can ping it client) client IP: 192.168.0.101 (can ping from server)
This is the only error message that these commands have produced in the messages log, secure log or smbd log for either machine. My immediate goal is to set up the simplest possible local mount that will allow Grsync to backup to the file server.
I have sent the last 5 hours (it is now 6am) and I am in no mood for lazy know-it-all'sI have returned begging and crawling back to Ubuntu (I waited a day for 10.10 to be released) and I have again stumbled across why I go back to Micro$oft's Windows.All I want to do it have a permanent share to my nas, which is on my Netgear DGND3300.I can reach it by Place -> Network -> Windows Network -> NAKALEEN -> NAS -> USB_Storagebut for the life of me I can't make it permanent. I need it as all my Movies/TV/eBooks are on this.I have followed every and I mean EVERY option I have found on Google with no luck. From the fstab/mount option to the gvfs option (as you can guess both failed)The reason it is *$&^%$^&%$ me off it that Windows can do it with a couple of mouse presses (Map Network drive). Making Ubuntu a joke in this area.
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and Samba 3.4. I've shared a folder and have accessed the share from a Windows 7 client. However, I've struggled to configure the share and folder so that the Win7 client can create files and/or folders in the share. Kept getting Permission Denied errors. Finally, (using Webmin) I set the permissions on the file folder so that "Other" had write access. I don't understand why this was necessary (and how unsecure this is). I already had the write access checkbox ticked for "User" but it wasn't enough.
I am trying to properly mount a samba share in order to access it from a terminal and run a script that I've written over a folder in the share. How could I do that? I tried smbclient but after successfully logging in I couldn't issue the sh command. Isn't it possible to have it mounted in the /mnt folder like a normal filesystem?
I've just loaded a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04, and I am unable to mount a samba share from an older Red Hat server. The problem first occurred when I tried using "Places -> Network" or "Places -> Connect to server", and the server's log gives me something like this
[2010/08/03 15:40:38, 1] auth/auth_server.c:check_smbserver_security(363) password server 10.100.1.2 rejected the password: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE [2010/08/03 15:40:38, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(319)
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card.My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP.The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.Suddenly I am now getting this error "Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share" whenever I try to access the desktop folders from the laptop.I suspect an upgrade is the culprit, but not sure.
i'm trying to connect to the three other machines in my house but am having quite a hard time doing so. i've never had a problem in the past with ubuntu, but, with 9.1 and windows 7, things have gotten a bit harder. i'm running 9.1 and my roommates are running windows 7. i've installed, set up and configured samba and i can see the computers on my network, but any time i try to access either of the drives, it says unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share.
I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I have been trying off and on for weeks to share my Internet connection with a Windows XP client (netbook). While I can ping back and forth between the two machines, in the form of a ping test, I can't get to the Internet from the client, no matter what I try.
My Ubuntu 9.10 desktop (host) has two NICs, eth0 and eth1. eth0 connects to the Internet. eth1 goes to the Windows XP client. Regardless of whether I use an Ethernet crossover cable or a standard cable, I can get the two machines to talk to each other, but no further.
Things I already tried:
-Tried setting eth1 to "shared" mode in NetworkManager on the host. I set the Win XP machine to automatically acquire an address & DNS. Didn't work.
-Manually configured the IP settings on both machines, like this: client: address 10.0.0.2 subnetmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 10.0.0.1
Despite all of the above, I still cannot share the host's Internet connection with the client. I don't understand where the client's traffic is going, and why I can't share the connection. As far as I know, I am not doing any sort of firewalling or blocking on the host, so there is no obvious reason that the client's traffic simply disappears. I just know that whenever I open a Web browser on the client, all I ever get is error messages.
I have had no issues setting up a shared connection when the host runs Windows XP, so I am pretty sure there is no broken hardware causing the problem. Why can't I share the connection under Ubuntu?
Over the last several days, I've been trying like hell to share my (wired) Internet connection with a netbook, running Windows XP, attached via crossover cable to my desktop's extra NIC (eth0). The eth0 link is established, but I can't get to the Internet from the Windows XP machine.I can ping one machine from the other, but any bits sent from the Win XP netbook mysteriously disappear when trying to reach any website.
There is no firewall running on the Ubuntu machine as far as I know. Windows Firewall is likewise disabled on the Windows XP machine. The Ubuntu machine connects to the Internet through another wired NIC, eth1.In Windows XP parlance, what I am trying to do would be called "bridging," where eth0 and eth1 would be the two parts of the bridge. In fact I already made it work, with both the netbook and my desktop running Windows XP. It took about 5 minutes.I can't believe what a huge pain this has been in Ubuntu. I'm pretty much ready to give up. There seems to be no way to get an Ubuntu system and a Windows XP system to share an Internet connection.
I have a computer running Ubuntu 10.10. I am using it to share many hard drives connected to it. I am using Samba. I have successfully shared many folders to one Windows user. I am attempting to share other folders within the shared folders to another user as read only but have not had any success. When I attempt to connect to one of the shares from another computer running Ubuntu 10.10, logged into an Administrator account with the same username and password which I setup on the Samba share I get the error: "Unable to mount location" "Failed to mount Windows share"
I'm able to connect to a networked Windows machine and its shares using the Places -> Network -> Windows network interface, but unable to do so using smbclient at terminal command line. I can see the shares using:
smbclient -L //server -U username
But when issuing the command:
smbclient //server/service -U username
domain=[server] OS=[Windows Server 2003 R2 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2] tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
The share name has spaces, like
lab raid root share
I use 40 to fill in the spaces. This problem must be something fairly simple if I can connect via the Places GUI but not through the command line.
I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.
Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:
[Windows 2000 and higher] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :
%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
ubuntu 9.04 and win xppro i've been pounding my head aganst this for hours now. reading anything i can find samba works mostly shares created from nautilus work fine from both ubuntu and windows if i check to allow guest access if not i can not log in it does work in the nautilus browser fine. shouldn't make a difference but am using a virtualbox win xp guest shares work without issue. printers work here is a dump of my service defenitions
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) map to guest = Bad User
I have a linux box that I'm using to mount a windows 7 share with samba or cifs. The mounting itself goes fine, but directories with more subdirs or files do not seem to have all the content they actually have.
For example, viewing my music folder shows only first 37 subdirs. The ls says "total 49", which is the correct amount, but the listing itself shows only 37 first in alphapetical order.
On the other hand, my wallpaper folder contains 122 files. Ls claims there is 41872 and displays only 70.
Adding the mount option noserverino increases the listed files or dirs, but it still does not show them all.
I've tried to enable debug printk level, but dmesg doesn't show anything interesting.
I've tried to change values in /proc/fs/cifs, but it does not seem to have any effect.
I've tried changing samba package. So far I've tested with 3.5.7, 3.5.2, 3.5.4 and now 3.5.8.
My distribution was yesterday slackware 13.1. Today I upgraded to 13.37 (with samba 3.5.8) but the problem persists.
I've tried with kernel versions 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
