OpenSUSE Network :: Debian Server To Opensuse Desktop Samba?
Jan 20, 2010
I setup a debian home server some time ago and have successfully setup samba so my windows machines can access them and upload/download data off it.I have setup opensuse on this desktop and after allowing smb through the firewall I now seem to have read only access to the smb shares.I am using the same username and password as I do on my windows machine, so in theory smb server should see my username and password and allow me read/write, like it does in win7. Is this correct?
Having just thought about it I think samba is just a tool to get shares working between linux/windows and macos.Is samba even the best tool for linux - linux sharing? how do I get read/write access to my shares in opensuse?or do I use another program to see my shares?I'm a bit new to this linux- linux sharing so I apologies.
He has a Samba 3.2 server on openSUSE 11.1. It worked fine with XP and Vista as a PDC. There are no NT servers on this office LAN. Now he has a W7 computer, and he was not able to sign on. From searching, it seems that an upgrade of Samba and a tweak of the registry are required. He did the upgrade to 3.5 from a supplementary openSUSE repo and restarted the server. But it seems he cannot sign on yet. I don't know if he did the registry tweak, I'm waiting to hear back.
The MS article: Windows 7 and Samba 3 interoperability My question is: He seems to be under the impression that Samba 4 is required to work with W7, but that M$ article seems to contradict him. Has anybody got W7 working with Samba 3 as a PDC like in XP and Vista? I can't find any FAQs about this.
I have setup an dhcp server wich allows ICS, and a samba server as a PDC. I can access the shares from windows if I type the server Ip (ej. \192.168.0.1), however if if write the address (ej. \dbaserver) I cannot access them.If I type ping dbaserver on a command prompt, it returns 127.0.0.2 not 192.168.0.1, what could be wrong. I asume because of this I cannot join the domain also.
I set up a Samba server on my openSuSE 11.2 machine and I can connect to it locally with the local ip and with my actuall ip. My friend however cannot. I tried to have him ping my ip and that wouldn't even work. I'm confused and wondering why it doesn't work. We share a lot of files and this would make both of our lives much easier.
I recently set up a Samba Server on a new Gigabyte (Desktop) Motherboard with support for SATA 3.0. I used a new 1T SATA 3.0 (6Gb) Hard Drive. The system is performing poorly, seems to have problems both opening and closing files (*.dbf).
Also will hold a file as open periodically (may be a Samba Issue).
Does the O/S have to support this standard, or is it a function of the Hardware...?
I have the problems with transfer speed between samba and Windows XP clients.
Samba server configuration: Quad Core 6600 CPU. 4 Gb RAM OpenSUSE 11.2 with kernel "188.8.131.52-0.1-desktop" Samba - samba-3.5.1-1.1.i586 Test: 4 GB File copying. One file.
Transfer speed from Samba Server to Windows 7 and XP clients: (Windows clients copy file from Server share -> to local drive) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 85-90 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 90-100 Mb/sec From Server to XP1 client 3 75-100 Mb/sec
Transfer speed from Windows 7 and XP clients TO Samba Server: (client copy file from local drive -> to server Share) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 12-20 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 30-35 Mb/sec From Server to Windows XP client 1 20-27 Mb/sec
(Copying file from Windows local drive to Windows remote share) From Window 7 client 1 TO Windows XP client 1 40-50 Mb/sec From Window 7 client 2 TO Windows XP client 1 50-60 Mb/sec
Copying file from Windows 7 client 2 share -> TO Windows XP client 1 show me 100-120 Mb/sec speed permanent. Copying file from Linux hosts to NFS server is stable 50-90 Mb/sec bidirectional.
This part of my smb.conf file Code: # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global] log level = 1 debug level = 0 max log size = 50 .....
I have very slow write speed when copying file from Windows clients to Samba Share. Samba speed is slower than Windows native clients connections ?
I have steup samba shares on my Susi pc. I get to the point where the server asks for a password for the user I have on the Susi box but when I enter the password it fails to connect. tried to add the user, password and enabled the user in the samba conf file. But not sure where it should appear I give below the smb.conf file:
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed.
I have configured a samba server where I have configured it for /mnt dir to be exported/shared. When I verify this share, I see mnt dir but I want the content inside the mnt to be visible or chroot into mnt directly.
I'm trying to set my openSUSE desktop up to use the printers on my office network via Samba. I managed to get it working in 11.2 but 11.3 is giving me some trouble.I am able to access the printers and use them but I have to enter my network credentials each time I print. In 11.2 I was able to "save" my username/password and was not required to do this. Are there any Samba packages I need to add in addition to the basic ones? There seems to be a lack of documentation on this particular subject, most is concerning Windows clients printing on Linux print servers.
Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to GNU/Linux (openSUSE as server for GNU/Linux clients) I managed to set up a DC with roaming profiles for the few remaining Windows users, user validation and login for the openSUSE boxes and a few network shares with different rights. I know there are no roaming profiles for GNU/Linux and I can live with that but I would like to specify wich users/groups would have their home directories saved locally (notebook users) and which will save them on the Samba server.
By default home directories are saved locally but somehow Samba creates a minimal home directory for each user under /home in the Samba server. How can I tell the client box to use that directory? and how can I set up the few notebook users to save it on their disks? Maybe using the options under Yast > Security... > Users and groups management > Users (LDAP Users filter) > and then select the user and use the "Manage Samba account parameters" plug-in for specifying the different paths cant achieve this.
I have opensusu 11.3 on my laptop and windows7 on first desktop, and XP on second desktop. Also, on my opensuse laptop I have installed XP as virtual OS in vmware player.I have setup samba using this guide that was given to me on this forum.From opensuse laptop I can see my Win 7 desktop, but cant log in. I enter Win 7 username and password, but it doesn't let me in.
Now, when I start XP trough vmware I can see win 7 desktop and connect it with username and password and browse my shares. On laptop, file sharing works both ways between host opensuse ang guest XP.On second desktop computer with XP, and I can connect to it from opensuse laptop normally.
I am trying for the last many days to setup my opensuse 10.3 as Samba PDC Server according to the URL mentioned below, but in vain:How to setup SUSE 10.3 as Samba PDC - openSUSE When ever I try to join a Windows XP machine to the domain setup on Opensuse, I get the error:'The following error occured while attempting to join the domain. The network path was not found'. What could be the reason for this error despite of the fact the I am able to ping the FQDN of the PDC from the XP machine, but the XP machine simply denies to join the domain because of the above mentioned error.
Installed a security update for samba tonight via Opensuse updater.Now, when trying to access my home network an authentication box pops up (never used to)Asks me to enter authentication for my home network.I enter my username and password and hit enter. After a few seconds the authentication box pops up again askingfor the same indicating I have entered the wrong username / password combination (which I know I have not).
These message have started appearing the system logs </var/log/messages and /var/log/warn> since Mar 2, 2011. They seem to occur about every 13 minutes (780 seconds). What could it mean? Is it serious?

I have setup samba server, set NMBD, SMBD & NTPD from system services and set apparmor to complain but I am still unable to read any network drives. I have checked the firewall and seen that samba is set to enable for internal allowed services. Also should I be changing the NMBD, SMBD & NTPD to complain from App armor?
When I access my OpenSUSE box's samba shares from another PC I am able to browse them, but am not able to follow symlinks.I've had the problem before on Ubuntu and fixed it by adding the following lines to my /etc/samba/smb.conf
I am new to Linux. I want to set up a home file/media server using Linux and have been investigating the possibility of using OpenSUSE for this task for a couple days now. I posted up some questions over at linux questions, but figured this one would be better suited for the OpenSUSE forum. My question is simple, is there any fundamental difference between OpenSUSE Server, and OpenSUSE desktop?
What I mean is, is there any difference to the basic programming of the operating system. From what I gather, when you install a Linux Distro for a server, it is just a striped down version of the desktop install. It has no GUI, and installs the complete bare minimum of software to get your server up and running. Is this correct? I am asking these questions because, as I said, I am new to Linux. I am not comfortable using command line only, and would very much like to install the desktop version of OpenSUSE, plus Samba, openSSH and Webadmin, then use that configuration for a server. Would setting up OpenSUSE as I stated above be the same as using the server install, just more "bloated?" Or is the server version of OpenSUSE coded differently?For example, comparing Windows Vista to Windows Home Server. Windows Vista isn't practical to use as a home server OS, simply because it was never coded to be one. Where as Home Server comes with software and is setup to be a server.
From what I understand, and I could be wrong, and please correct me if I am. Linux is much different. Any Linux distro can be a server, even the desktop version. You just need to get the proper programs (like Samba, SSH, Webadmin) for the job. The people who use the Server version, simply just want something less bloated then the desktop version, but the desktop version works just as good as a server if you have the proper hardware? I was debating on putting Windows Home server on the machine, but very much want to learn Linux, and figure this is as good of an opportunity as any. It also helps that a desktop install of OpenSUSE takes less resources then Windows Home Server.
I am having problems with samba, I went to the yast samba setup and thought I configured it but now I am stuck. I just want to really set up sharing my printer and one folder. any help will be appriciated I have a linksys router, windows vista home 32 on a laptop, opensuse 11.1 64 with windows xp home 32bit running in seemless mode on a virtualbox.
I wonder how to get Samba share access working well...Dolphin supports Samba but it doesn't really mount anything, it seems... Non-KDE Applications therefor can't access samba that way. In Gnome there was a workaround for the same problem. You could simply go to ~/.gvfs in any application and find the samba mounted there.Is there anything like that in KDE? I set up a Samba mount via /etc/fstab for now but that is quite annoying because it fails after each Suspend, changing WLAN Access Points, etc. Then I have to go to the console and manually launch sudo mount -a to get it working again. How can I make things more comfortable?
P.S.: I'm even up for using something else than Samba to talk to my fileserver. However I don't know of anything that would work better in this regard. (NFS would have the exactly same problem for example)
My Samba setup works just fine however whenever I do stop/start/restart. I get these errors in the logs: Jan 17 00:21:14 neutrino smbd: smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use Jan 17 00:31:20 neutrino smbd: [2010/01/17 00:31:20, 0] smbd/service.c:1009(make_connection_snum) Does anyone know what to think of these? My thought is since it works just ignore and probably the SuSE team will get to cleaning this up sometime.
i have an Opensuse 10.3 server running samba and i just wanted to know how i could attach ms dos clients to samba if thats possible,i tried downloading TCP/IP software for dos but i could not find anything on the net that works.
i got everything working on my laptop, i just can't set up my network sharing..
I have a desktop pc running Windows 7, and this laptop running openSuse 11.1!
I use Gnome by the way... When i get to Network in Nautilus, i double click on Windows Network -> Workgroup -> Windows7PC, but at that point i don't see any folders or anything..
This is my smb.conf file:
Code: # smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2008-12-03
In firewall i added Samba in broadcast, followed some tutorial on the net..
I followed samba setup per thread Samba and Suse: HowTo Set up an openSUSE-Windows Home Office LAN/Network. Versions 11.x and then upgraded my samba from the special repository per advice at Samba broken after latest security update 11.2 - openSUSE Forums I can now see all my boxes on the network from either an XP or linux box and I can access my linux shares from any XP box but I can't access any XP share from my linux box (openSUSE 11.2). I get an error that reads "The file or folder smb://SharedDocs does not exist"I can see the SharedDocs folder under the XP box in samba shares though. And it really does exist on the XP box.
How i can get samba-vscan working on OpenSUSE 11.2 or 11.3, i try to find the way compiling but i got several errors, is there some way to get RPMs for this two distros?Also i try dazuko but that app dont remove infected files, or i dunno how to do it xD
In the Windows network, there are 2 or more shares as follows:
I can access both shares in nautilus e.g. "smb://bla.bla.company.com/share $". The shares are mounted then in "home/user/.gvfs/". ok.
In one of shares, is a file-based repo, which I can access easily with svn.
Unfortunately when I try to checkout any normal folder from a share (as in MS$ with Tortoise), I fail...
What's more in the file-based repo, external references exist to other shares in the network, the name is as "file:///X:/folder/file.txt". SVN gives error messages about such references and does not access files (where "X:/" is also mounted, but as a "test$ to smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" in "home/user/.gvfs/ ").
My questions: - what is the best solution to mount shares, so I can access all the SVN repos? - How can I access normal files and folders from a share with svn? - How can the problem with external file references in a file-based SVN repo can be solved? without to checkout/commit files "manually"... - Some checkouted scripts (Perl, etc.) use libs from shares: "Use lib qw(r:/tools/perl/lib/). how to get around this as well? - How can I change mount-names: "test$ on smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" to something like "share-test$? - How can I change the mount location? in "home/user/SAMBA/" instead of "/home/user/.gvfs/"..
I had tried to use "fuse-smb": installed, created config, but when I run "fusesmb /home/user/SHARES/", i get an error message: smb.conf is missing.. Where can I get this config?
And one last question: Can someone recommend me a svn-gui? i have tried tried rabbitcvs, esvn and some others .. but all either do not work or crash.
I'm not sure, but maybe I can use svn and tortoise in wine, and checkout/commit the necessary files from/to "home/user/project/"? there raises the questions whether it is possible to install tortoise in wine and how to mount the shares on the wine? How to manage the hard-coded lib-names in some scripts...
have a server here running opensuse 11.3 that I need to access via network using samba. Samba is working so far and I can ping the serve and browse the shares from windows (WinXP) computers; but only via the IP.Now I've read up on samba on this forum and other sources, like the official samba documentation and compared my smb.conf with an older one on another server which works (and even copied this one over to the new one) - to no avail.I seem to be missing something and I just can't find it.Since the problem is probably not in the smb.conf (previously working one doesn't work on new server) - where else could I have screwed up?
First, like a dummy I did not backup the Samba config file before making changes. Using openSUSE as ftp and http server, was following tutorial to share between openSUSE and windows. I was using VNC to access machine to edit Samba config file, after altering the the file VNC authenication fails. I can still authenicate locally and through the ftp.
