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.
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 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 currently have opensuse 11.2 installed. I am trying to setup samba shares which you can only access as certain user. Currently looks like the only way I can access these share is use root username/password!
I want to which GUI I need to use to setup this up properly. And of course what setting to exactly to use.
I am trying to have accessible computer by its network name (same as hostname) by ping and Samba client from other computers and one directory shared on my laptop. I simple, trivial wish I hope. Nothing extravagant. Something what every Windows user has out-of-the box, just to select a shared directory. However I struggle hard to do the same with linux. Sharing directory with samba is relatively easy, the issues I have is with my laptop network name. It is not recognized/propagated to the local network.
I cannot rely on static data in /etc/hosts. This is a laptop not a server, I move it between different networks. To achieve propagation of my network name (hostname) dynamically, so everyone in the local network can at least ping me, I was advised to use winbind (winbindd), that is to rely on MS NetBios technology There is no native linux technology to achieve this? shame! what about plain/dynamic DNS? why it is not my network name not propagated to my local DNS server/wifi/rooter?
To do that I was advised to do: - run winbind service (winbindd daemon) - run samba service (umm, not sure if this is necessary for network name propagation, but I also want to share data so lets keep it as an essential). - add "wins" to /etc/nsswitch.conf to "hosts" section
Well, it seems to work on my other two computers with Ubuntu and Mandriva well. But not on Suse. Well, not completely, not permanently. It magically start working when I call "Yast -> Samba Configuration". No change here (everything is already set: Domain Name, Not a DC, Netbios Hostname, Wins server support=yes, use Wins for Hostname Resolution) just hit OK. It runs SOMETHING in the background (some scripts) for a few seconds. And then abrakadabra, everything is fine, my network name is recognized, everyone can use my samba exposed directory, smb4k sees me in the Network Neighborhood.
BUT when I restart, I am "back in square one". Pinging my name does not work, smb4k does not see me, or cannot find me even by IP! Samba sharing works by using direct IP. Not all clients support connecting by IP notably not smb4k. To use Samba properly you have to sort out network name visibility fist. I would like to make "Yast -> Samba Configuration" achievements somewhat more PERMANENT.
What exactly runs when I hit OK? No new server/daemon was started. I checked PS, nothing with newer PID appeared. And samba and winbind are started on boot, they were running indeed. No change in configuration was made. I checked all changes made in /etc - but none found! Where is winbind configuration? smb.conf? Do I need to run wins server/client, another daemon?
I decided to enable dual stack on my home 11.3 machine and play with IPv6. I use ifup to assign static addresses to eth0. FYI here are some things I found:
1. YaST doesn't seem to support associating IPv6 addresses to interfaces, it complains that the address is invalid. However you can edit /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 manually and specify it like this:
and when you restart the networking you will see an additional IPv6 address associated with eth0. Fortunately YaST doesn't mangle the entry when you look at it, but you can't edit it.
2. The SCOPE qualifier is documented in /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg.template, but seems to have no effect. Site local addresses in IPv6 are supposed to start with FE[CDEF] according to this:
The TCP/IP Guide - IPv6 Special Addresses: Reserved, Private (Link-Local / Site-Local), Unspecified and Loopback
Once bound, you can connect to services using the IPv6 address just like normal. You have to use ping6 instead of ping though.
I added an AAAA record to my nameserver and that seems to work. Whether the client software tries the IPv6 address varies. It depends on whether the software asks for the AAAA record and uses it. It seems my web browsers don't. I'm not surprised, since few people have IPv6 tails from their ISP. I'm going to look and see if there is some browser setting I have to adjust. I also have to figure out a way of making sure that only LAN destinations use IPv6.
does opensuse 11.2 come with IPv6 enabled by default? where in the gnome gui can i access these settings?
Edit-i went into the gnome network manager applet and i cant find any IPv6 settings for any of my used connections-ethernet, wireless and VPN connections all seem to only IPv4. Can anyone else confirm that opensuse 11.2 uses only IPv4 on its network connections?
I just installed ubutnu 9.10 and just installed samba. I edited the config files to workgroup to dhome which is the work group all my windows comptuer uses to share files. I want to share files and also be able to access files off my windows computers. I got onne windows 2000 that has a username needed to be typed in to access it. the rest is accessable. In the config file. I uncommented the security= user thing. I now tried to access the network but still fails.
Here is what I can see. when I go to places and click network I see windows network and click it it will say dhome and Workgroup. when I click on the dhome folder it takes a while and then gives me the error saying sorry didnt' get a list from the server. what do I need to do to access the network?
it's a couple of weeks I can't perform YaST updates from my openSUSE 11.2. The reason is that YaST wants to connect to repositories "only" through IPv6, but my network doesn't support it. I quoted only because I suppose it prefers v6 over v4, but it keeps trying to connect without switching to v4 or returning error.
Even if I disabled IPv6 from YaST/Networking/Network Settings, I still have a local scope address. I connect to Wifi using KNetworkManager. The TCP/IP stack should know that if an interface has a local scope v6 address and a global v4 address, it's a bad idea to keep trying with v6. Italian mirror, garr.it, of openSUSE repository both has v4 and v6 addresses. If I try to ping opensuse.mirror.garr.it I ping v4, but if I try to telnet that host on port 80 it tries to connect to v6. Same if I try to connect with Firefox.
How to tell Linux that I don't have IPv6? I'm connecting from University of Naples wireless network. While unina has IPv6 via GARR's Teredo tunnel (2001:760::/32 as I remember), it doesn't reach students' network because DHCP server doesn't release IPv6, nor Zeroconf obtains one. I just would like to use classic IPv4 until, at least for now.
I have an issue on a few servers where IPv6 stops working after a reboot. I can ping anything within the same subnet but anything outside of that it gives me host unreachable. I believe that it is not routing for some reason, but I am not sure why. I have tried adding a default Ipv6 route for Eth3 but nothing seems to work.
uname -a Linux server-1 126.96.36.199-5-default #1 SMP 2009-02-28 04:40:21 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Code: route -A inet6 Kernel IPv6 routing table .....
I'm having a little problem here. That, or I'm missing the obvious staring me in the face. I have this file server, called toad. I nuked it's system disk, reorganising the partitions and upgrading to openSUSE 11.3 x64. I installed vsftd with "Yast FTP server", and the config looks OK. I even compared it with that of another machine. But when I try to connect, this is what I get:
user@mainmachine:~> ftp ftp> open toad Connected to toad.geuens.org. 500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv6 socket
I'm prettige sure IPv6 is deactivated. The firewall is disabled on both machines. I've looked this over again and again. Can't find it. It's not the connecting machine, I've tried from another.
IPV6 gets more and more interesting. YAST is failing to connect to the repositories. I have disabled ipv6 in several ways but none of them work or YAST (also Konqueror) seems to do it's own thing. I have managed to get Firefox to work see my "slow internet seems to be down to dns post" made earlier today. So as a check on the YAST problem I loaded each of the repository addresses into Firefox and lo they all connect without any problem at all. So it seems that the YAST problem is down to IPV6
In order to disable ipv6 I initially added ipv6.disable=1 to the end of all of the bootloader APPENDS. More recently following up further info on here I added a couple of lines to /etc/modprobe.d/99-local.conf. These were: alias net-pf-10 off alias ipv6 off This doesn't work either.
Maybe of use to others - It seems it's possible to see if IPV6 is active by typing the following into the command line: ip a | grep inet6 I'm told if it is active lines will be output? So just what do I do to disable it in YAST and I hope in Konqueror too? It's beginning to look like it is enabled or disabled at the app level according to the Firefox fix.
I've had a hell of a time with this and now all but YAST2 are ok. Going back some time to 10.0 this could be used to disable it very completely.
open terminal and run echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf echo "alias ipv6 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf
restart computer. Has anyone used this on more recent issues even 11.4 and are there any repercussions?I assume that the inverse will but it back on ie off's just become on's? I will be using cups when I install my printer which is one concern and I am not at all sure that modprobe will do anything anymore?
I also recollect that there is a command to cause the kernel to effectively reboot which would save restarting. Can't remember what it is. Maybe some one can refresh my memory.
I would like to create a dedicated Samba print server. I have two printers on my LAN, one printer came with its own NIC and the other is on a Win server box. I would like to setup Samba so that I can just access that server (Samba printer server) and both network printers will show up on there for me to connect to. On that note, can I also load the drivers on my Samba server? Drivers for different Windows flavours and also Mac OSX drivers.
How do I assign IPv4 and IPv6 static addresses permanently in OpenSUSE 11.2? Currently I am only able to assign either IPv4 or IPv6 static address not both. I cannot find even the interfaces file(/etc/sysconfig/network/interfaces).
running a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop in the living room with a LOT of files. I've tried all week to get this working, and can't tell where the problem is. I want to make a music share that will: Allow guests, but as read-only Allow me to mount in Windows 7 with the user 'thecheeks' Give user thecheeks read/write access to that share
I swear Samba ends up working but maybe the problem is with Windows 7. I looked at the SAMBAWiki Win 7 page and made sure my registry values were what they should have been (and they were).
On our Home LAN, we have several different SuSE machines running. Now, I have run into a problem which I cannot solve myself. One of the computers (a 11.2) just doesn't receive any IPv6 lease from the main router. The router has radvd running and distributes addresses to the other computers just fine. The network card on the box ist a
My ISP offers the service of native IPv6. So my ADSL router provides me with a local and global IPv6 address. However after a reboot it takes minutes to finally see the global address when using "ifconfog eth0". During that time I can't do a ping6 to an external server, which seems logical. So I waited several minutes, but no global address. After that I started a KDE session, went back to the console(<Ctrl>+<Alt>+F1) and now the global address was there. Is this normal behavior or should I file bug report?
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
Im trying to setup multiple domU through the default bridge setup. I am able to access only one of them through the network at a time. If you ping one of the domU it works perfectly but you cannot ping any of the others until you stop pinging the one and even then it takes a bit before you can. Ive looked around for a while and seen similar problems but nothing ever seems quite the same. Im probably missing something really stupid. Or is this the way the bridge is supposed to behave? Do i need to use a routed virtual network?
i am tring to setup SAMBA with webmin. the problem im having is that i can not login to the shared areas like homes and users. i can see them when i search my network i double click on them and it asks for user name and password. i have already set up a user using the convert unix user to samba user and have set a password. i have set teh Use encrypted passwords? to yes. when i try and log in it say login unsuccesful login or password my be incorect.
setting up SAMBA with webmin? Samba Configuration: i fould this one but didnt help. in uesing suse 11.3 and windows vista
Iam trying to get samba work with no password on my home network. I want to have Writeble permissions for creating files and folders and sub folders in the shared folder with no password needed.
I have this set up
Code: # # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # # # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
I can access the /home/seb/ directory but cant write in it. And with the same permissions for the down directory I cant even access the folder from the other pc it only says "Could not display "smb://laptop/down".The file is of an unknown type"
And finally how can I clean up the smb.conf so it is readable?
I'm trying to play a DVD across a wireless network. The DVD is in one machine (desktop - address 192.168.10.3), and I'm trying to play it in a laptop (x61s - address 192.168.10.21). The DVD will play fine on the desktop (open Nautilus and click "Open Movie Player"), but it won't play on the laptop. The drive (DVD) is mapped on the laptop as a Samba share, and I can see the disk and open it in Nautilus, and can see all the files within it (i.e. it appears to read fine). However when I click on "Open Movie Player", Movie Player opens but produces a window saying "An error occurred. Could not read from resource". If I try opening it with VLC then it won't open either. The VLC window gets a little wider for a few moments but that's about it. If I open VLC from a terminal then I get the following message in the terminal when I try to open the DVD from the network:
Code: ogp@ogp-X61s:~$ vlc VLC media player 1.0.6 Goldeneye
First off I would like to install a GUI for samba. After that I want to set up my network so that router stays as the server for the network I have four windows computers already hanging off of the router. This machine which has Slackware on it is hardwired, directly connected, to the router via cat-5 cables. I have samba installed already and I just need to configure it correctly.
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).
