Software :: Samba Access No Longer Working In Windows 7

Jan 15, 2011

I've recently been experiencing an issue connecting to my Samba shares on a Ubuntu 10.4 server box on my network from a Windows 7 client. If I use Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine, or a Windows XP Virtual Machine running under both Windows and Linux host the share works absolutely fine.

What happens is if I browse to the hostname or the IP address I see a login prompt (there is access control) but my username and password no longer work. Before I didn't need to login as they are the same as my windows credentials.

I'm not sure what information/logs etc would be most relevant so I've posted some information, if any more is required then let me know where to find it and I'm sure I'll be able to get it.

Here is the last few days of the log when I believe it was working, there are no entries since.

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 - No Longer Can Access Samba Share

Apr 13, 2010

I have a samba server on my LAN. It can be accessed without any problems from Windows machines on the LAN without password. I have two computers that I have updated to OpenSuse 11.2 (both used to run 10.3). Since doing this upgrade I can no longer access the samba share from the Suse machines. Basically, both Dolphin and Konqueror ask for a username and password to access "avoca" (the workgroup).

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba No Longer Working - Caused By Update?

Mar 3, 2010

I think an update or something has killed Samba on my Karmic box. it can see Windows shares OK, but it no longer appears on the Windows network.I have not changed my smb.conf for months, so something else has been modified.Looking in the logs I can see the following in "log.winbindd-idmap" after restarting Samba

Code:

[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:201(smb_register_idmap_alloc)
idmap_alloc module tdb already registered!
[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:149(smb_register_idmap)

[code]...

All other networking seems fine (internet, Synergy+ etc) it's just sharing out to the Windows network that is broken.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Can No Longer Access Windows

Mar 31, 2011

I tried Ubuntu 10.10 after occasionally using other distros of Linux from time-to-time on friends' machines. After deciding it trumped Windows in almost every way, I decided to install if from a USB stick. The installation appeared to work and I followed the instructions that were given on the Ubuntu download page. After it restarted, it booted back from the USB stick asking again if I wanted to try Ubuntu or install it. I tried to shut down however the only options I get in the power off menu (on the top right) are Suspend and Hibernate. I ended up turning the computer off by holding the power button on my computer (I know this has probably hindered me more than helped but I needed to shut down).

When the power was off, I removed the USB stick and tried turning on the laptop again, however, I no longer get any options to get into my BIOS settings, and NOTHING will boot. I just get a black screen with a blinking white cursor in the top left corner. I can still use Ubuntu by using the ''Try Ubuntu'' option when running from the USB stick but quite obviously this is not ideal. I know I have probably wiped Windows Vista from my system (I had most data backed up a week or so ago, so all the important things I still have, however, if there is any way, I would like it all back). Any way to do a Super-System-Restore to revert back to Windows (if this is even possible).

OpenSUSE Network :: Windows 7 And Windows LiveID Sign-In Assistant Working With SAMBA?

Dec 10, 2010

I have 3 computers. One running openSuse 11.3 with SAMBA and the other 2 are Windows 7 Professional boxes. I have the same user name and passwords for all three boxes.

From the Linux box I can access one of the Windows 7 boxes but the other won't accept my user name and password. The one that won't accept has Windows LiveID Sign-In Assistant installed. Apparantly that's an automatic install now.

I've read that there is a bug with the SAMBA libsmbclient [URL].

I tried updating via YAST but still end up with version 3.5.4-5.1.2 and this doesn't work.

Fedora Networking :: Samba Broken / Error 6291, The "force User" Option Is No Longer Working?

Jun 15, 2009

I ran "yum update" on 03-06-2009 and it updated my samba version from

3.2.8-0.26.fc10.x86_64
to
3.2.11-0.30.fc10.x86_64

My network shares then became read only!After some digging it turns out my system is not working because of Samba bug 6291, the "force user" option is no longer working.

Ideally I would run another "yum update" and that would fix the problem. Apparently the bug has been fixed in Samba 3.4.0pre2 - when can when we expect that to be released and included when I do a "yum update"?

Alternatively how do I get back to version 3.2.8-0.26.fc10.x86_64 ?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Windows Cannot Access Samba Directories?

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to set up samba on my CentOS Linux 5.5 server, and I've gotten to the point where the Windows Sharing Center recognized the server, can even connect to it with credentials, but when I try to access a directory, I get this Message:Code: Windows cannot access \HOMEpublicCheck the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. Try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. When I click diagnose, it does not fix the issue.This happens with any directory I create. I chmod the directories to 777, so I don't see the problem with permissions.

This is my config file. (smb.conf):

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Access Samba Server Using Windows XP/7

Mar 4, 2011

I cannot access my Ubuntu samba server using windows XP or 7. I keep getting prompted for a username/password. I have created both a unix username with password and a samba username with the same password i used for the unix user. When windows prompts me for the username/password i give it the same one i created on the samba server, but it still will not take it. I know samba is running because i can view the shares but cannot access them without getting prompted for username/password. I just have the one user for now while i am testing, but there will be more.

I am using Ubuntu Desktop 10.04.

Server :: Cant Access Samba Shares In Ubuntu 10.04 From Windows

Jul 7, 2010

So I setup the newest Ubuntu on my old desktop on a 30g HD and have 2 200G HDs with a ntfs file system on those two. I got SSH and FTP configured, then went on to setup Samba.I have it (seemingly) set up well. /dev/sb1 gets mounted on /data1 /dev/sc1 gets mounted on /data2.I want anyone connected to my router to be able to see this machine and be able to read and write to both shares.

I configured WINS on my laptop to point to the linux box. and i've seen the pc in question (TECH-PC) in "My Network Places" on both of our laptops.Long story short, I try to connect to my network share and it says i don't have permission and i need to contact my network admin. This computer is the only one with Linux installed, the rest are windows-OS.Let me know if you need more info, pretty stumped here, have searched, read, scrapped my install and started from scratch, maybe i need to sleep on it

Networking :: Samba Authentication Failures To Access Windows PC From OpenSUSE 11.3?

Aug 16, 2010

So far I've been able to get Samba to connect to the my WORKGROUP and I can see my Vista PC as well as my 3 hdd's but when I try and open the folder, any folder, C$; D$; or E$ I'm confronted with a user name and

password prompt. No user name or password combination that's associated with either machine, openSUSE or Vista will grant me access. Why am I seeing this prompt and what I would really like to know is can it be

disabled all together? Otherwise, what user name and password does Suse want? Do I need to tell Suse in a terminal a user name and password?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 On HPtx2000 - Use Samba To Access A Public Folder Of A Windows Computer?

Jan 20, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my sister's HPtx2000 since she isn't going to use it anymore and it worked better than I expect. The touchscreen works without any additional driver tweaking and installation <3, the wireless works fine, the sound works. I listed those because when i was installing, I was looking around at other people that did this and those were the problems they had (but those was of an old OS).

Well anyways, what I want to ask is about the stuff that doesn't work and the stuff I want to do: The buttons that flip the screen and etc doesn't work. Is there a way to map them and flip the orientation of the screen? And the other buttons too, like the media button. Is there a way to map them to open VLC or something? Does anyone know any tablet programs for Ubuntu? E.g a simple text program that can convert stuff written to neat, typed font? A way to write text into a google search bar using the stylus? And while we're on this, is there a way to map a left click on the touch screen?

In Windows, the left click could be mapped to: a). a side button of the pen, b) the top button of the pen, and c) holding the pen down onto the touchscreen. how to use Samba to access a public folder of a Windows computer? And to access the printer connect to the Windows computer? Some of the tutorials I found were only for folders and printers on the Ubuntu computer.

Server :: Unable To Access Samba Share On CentOS 5.4 From Windows XP Or Vista

Jan 23, 2010

I can't be the first one with this problem. What am I missing?

I have setup Samba servers in the past, just none under SELinux. The last one I configured was a couple years ago, so I wouldn't doubt I'm a bit rusty.


---- Environment summary:
Clean server install of CentOS 5.4 includes SELinux
- lets call this 'server'
- updated samba to 3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1

Client1 - Windows XP sp4 - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above
Client2 - Windows Vista - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above

---- What works / what doesn't ------
Clients can see the server (XP and vista) in network neighborhood.
The following does not work from windows (xp or vista)
net view
net view \server
net view \server-ip
net view \servershare

This does work on the server
smbclient -L \server
smbclient -L \server --user validuser
smbclient -L \client1 --user validuser


---- What I have configured and tried (config/output below) --------
firewall ports for samba are open
SELinux enforcing or permissive
file context is set on share
samba booleans are set

***firewall
