OpenSUSE Network :: Samba PDC + Dhcp Server 11.2 - Unable To Use Them
Jan 14, 2010
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'll try not to be too wordy. Want to get my openSUSE 11.2 (fresh install) laptop to see my network shares ...not to be a server or share any files. I've looked at 50 websites and everything seems to be "server" and "share" oriented. Maybe I (newb) am confused by the terminology...
I have a router that provides DHCP. My LAN PC's consist of a Vista laptop, an XP DAW, and a Kubuntu file server. Somehow I got Kubuntu configured properly, all of the Windows machines can access it and vice-versa. The Kubuntu smb.conf does not work on this laptop, and it seems overkill -no shares needed here. And yes, I get DHCP and interweb on the laptop -posted this with it.
All I want is access to my (other) network drives from this (openSUSE 11.2) laptop. Not a server, not to share. This is easy... right? It's driving me nuts Is there a Samba configuration that will let me jump onto networks and surf Windows/Samba shares like any old Windoze box browsing Network Neighborhood? Do I have to be a Samba guru?
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.
Although Im using SuSE since 7.2 this is my first forum post here. I just plugged in my iPhone with USB and 11.4 created an eth1 interface for the iPhone and also loads the ipheth kernel module. Anyhow I am not able to acquire an IP address using DHCP. The iPhone OS is 4.2.1 and its an iPhone 3G 8GB black
I have installed a working DNS server on my home network. I have an unique server, devoted to dns, gateway, storage which runs opensuse 11.0 (I known that it is rather old). Two new clients require DHCP. I have installed, using yast, a very simple DHCP server, according to the following config:
(I have tried to add "ddns-update-style none", and to remove the ntp-servers option, since my server is not a time server, without success). Unfortunately, even if the client (a mac running OSX 10.4) receives a right IP and gateway address, it displays neither dns server address nor default domain name. The same mac, on my office network (not managed by me), receives everything.
I unable to connect to samba but after change the register (Windows7 - SambaWiki),I could login and map/access the share drive.but when I try to shudown/restart/logoff win7 , the screen just stop with windows logo without the shutdown/restart words coming out.
I want to share files from my opensuse 11.3 laptop and Windows XP desktop. It works well between Vista and XP. The domain name is WORKGROUP I checked everything: firewall Opensuse (open ports), firewall XP (disabled), XP workgroup name (WORKGROUP), opensuse Samba workgroup name (WORKGROUP) And my domain controller is set to "Not a DC" Still when I launch network in Dolphin I get "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network"
I am puzzled with trying to configure a linux (openSUSE) client to dhcp to eBox DHCP server. I am using dhclient to lease an IP address with dhclient eth0 -s 10.45.48.108 and get a response
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 interval 4 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPOFFER from 10.45.48.108 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address.
The server reports eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0 eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.45.200.2 to 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0
I interpret this as the server receives the request and the client accepting it but the lease does not last long and the connection breaks. what this could be and why the connection breaks? Or my undestanding is totally wrong on how it works and should work? And BTW, where is that README file that's referenced in the message I receive on the client?
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 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 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 "184.108.40.206-0.1-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 been trying for the last few weeks to set up my network but don't see to be getting anywhere. This is what I'd like: I can get Internet on the server but cant work out how to bridge the connection and setup a dhcp server out of eth1. I have installed dhcp3-server and bridge-utils but can't seem to configure them right. The modem uses IP 10.0.0.1 and gateway 10.0.0.138 I'd like to leave the modem settings alone if possible. I don't care what the network IP addresses are but I thought it might be easier to see the difference if they were 192.168.0.0
I am using 10.10 64bit desktop edition for the server/desktop. The laptop has Ubuntu 10.10 and win7 duel boot (Not really worried about getting windows working) HTPC is XBMC Freak on an Asrock ion 330. The desktop is broken at the moment. (ram packed it in) will be running a version of ubuntu at some stage (need funds for more ram). I know there are lots of tutorials out there I just can't find one that explains what I wont to do in easy to understand terms and is up-to-date.
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 have an ubuntu 11,04 samba domain server, I want to also configure this machine to work as a dhcp server, however this have give me some issues with te windows 7 workstations, my guest is that it have something to do with the iptables because those station do join the samba domain went both server and workstation are conected to a router.
This is the script I use at boot
#FOR SHARED INTERNET /sbin/iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT /sbin/iptables --table nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth2 -j MASQUERADE
I haven't test it with windows xp station but I have use the same code in the past with no problems, and since this is my first time joining windows 7 station i belive there must be some other port that need fowarding.
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.
Why trying to avoid ranting about my Linksys router, I'll try and keep things short. I have a Linksys router in which the default firmware was terrible and would not correctly renew its DHCP lease. After getting feed up with that I flashed dd-wrt on the router and now it works better but randomly DNS queries would stop being resolved. To rule out the chances that it is my ISPs DNS servers I switched my DNS to openDNS, same problem happens (although I have to admit openDNS is a lot better than what my ISP has).
Anyways I'm about feed up with it and about an inch away from drop kicking the thing out my window. To avoid that I figured I will give it one more change and instead of using my Linksys as my network gateway I'll move all of that to my home server, and make the Linksys just an wireless AP. Besides setting up DHCP, DNS, and iptables on the server is there anything else I will need to know and setup on the server to make this work?
Side note anyone using openSUSE for DHCP know if setting up reserved IPs for certain MAC address is possible?
I had 200 workstation with both Windows XP and SuSe Enterprise Linux. Sometime, a few clients can't get IP address from DHCP with SuSe OS. With the same computer, if I reboot and chose Windows XP, it work fine. The log message or the boot message was "No IP Address yet ...backgrounding". I tried to reconfig network device, restart services, change another port, change another line LAN, set static IP Address .... but there's no luck for me.
I was programming much in windows and I slowly get used to linux, I'm using SUSE 11.2 as a server in my home network. I about 10 windows-pc's in my network, which is structured as following: Very simple router (no dhcp) -> Switch -> Win1, Win2, .., Suse, I already managed to set up the DHCP server, and it works like a charm, I'm not able to get in the internet with the Windows PC's. This is especially strange if you consider the settings:
I tried pinging the gateway from both suse11.2 and win but it failed. Pinging win7 to suse and other way around is possible. internet works on suse11.2, but it doesn't works on win.
Basically, I wanted to use the Bootp (PXE) protocol to boot a machine (my laptop) from my network instead of using USB/DVD boot medias to reinstall if need be. My router being a piece of crap, I couldn't setup the DHCP server to allow PXE packets. Confirmed from the manufacturer that it is not possible. Well for a $140 router, you would expect the opposite. Anyways, here I am with a small machine setup with Slack, no desktop environment (only CLI) and connected to my router (which I deactivated the DHCP) so the machine can act as a DHCP server. It works very well. However, I would like to install a few other utilities into that machine and for them to work, I need to put the machine between my cable modem and my router. Basically, here's the topology from outside):
Internet (ISP) --> Modem --> DHCP machine --> Router (no DHCP - acting as a switch) --> computers & printers
The problem is that I cannot connect to the modem from the computers on the network. Also I cannot access the internet (go on the WAN side) from the computers. From the computers (namely my laptop), I can ping the router, but cannot ping the interface where DHCP broadcast. Also I cannot ping the modem. From the router (using the web config page), I can ping the DHCP broadcast. From the DHCP machine, I can ping the modem. In the DHCP server, I setup the eth0 (the interface where the modem connect to) as a DHCP assigned IP so it can obtain the IP from the modem. The eth1 (the interface where DHCP broadcast) is static. All my machines obtains a IP from the DHCP machine without a hiccup.
