Ubuntu Networking :: Both NFS And Samba On The File Server?

Apr 29, 2010

I have in my home 3 pc's 2 of them ubuntu, 1 windows/ubuntu. I have a NAS (mybook WD) that I'm going to hack to install a linux OS on it, to take advantage of some benefits. I'll need access from windows networks. I've read there are many benefits of NFS over Samba, with the inconvinient that it cannot be access by windows. Is it a good idea to have both NFS and samba on the file server?

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Samba File Server?

Nov 27, 2010

I'm trying to set up an old computer that was donated to my by an aunt to hold my external hard drives and use it as a file server so i can use them from anywhere within my house. However I can not seem to get the samba server to broadcast/be seen by my ubuntu installation, nor my windows installation.

I've read the manual, to an extent, but I feel as if I am missing something. All I want is to have it to where I can just type in \server and bring up my files to access without having to worry about passwords.

Here is the config file:

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = GrenadingBadger
security = share

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Server - Printer Drops

Mar 11, 2010

I have a Samba file server with one windows & one Ubuntu workstation. The Ubuntu workstation is a Samba print server. The problem is that the XP machine cannot access the printer. If I restart Samba on the print server it works again. There may be a pattern but I havn't figured it out yet.

Here's my file:

Ubuntu Networking :: File Server On 10.04 Machine - Slow Samba

May 22, 2010

I'm trying to set up a fileserver on my 10.04 machine, and access the files from Windows 7 via wifi. I can see everything alright, but the transfer speed to Windows never gets higher than 70KBps. Both computers can access the web at 800+KBps. I've also checked with an OS X machine on the same network, which was also extremely slow, so I'm fairly sure that the problem is on the server's side.

Networking :: Share A File Via Samba On A Ubuntu Server That Is Actually Stored On A FreeNAS Box?

Mar 10, 2011

I'm trying to share a file via Samba on a Ubuntu server that is actually stored on a FreeNAS box. The FreeNAS drives are mounted via NFS and the Samba share contains a symlink to file on the FreeNAS drive.Browsing the Samba share I can see the file and size, but any attempt to read the file fails. It complains about authentication but all credentials across all machines are the same.So, is it possible to share a file this way or is there another way to do this?I know I could create all the profiles on the FreeNAS box but for convenience and ease of maintenance I was hoping to do this via the Ubuntu server

Networking :: Samba Shares On Server - Nagging File / Foldername

Aug 17, 2010

This one has proven to be a real for me. On one of my Samba shares on my server I have a folder of mp3 files of my CDs. The one I am having an issue with is "Clarence Carter/Dr. C.C." (yes, the one with the ULTIMATE party song). The "Dr. C.C." folder name is normal locally, but across Samba it comes out "DMOU3A~H". I can still access the folder this way, but it would be nice to not have Samba mangle the folder name this way. I am using Samba 3.4.2 on an Athlon64 X2 system running Slackware64.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File - Access Shared Folder - Error: Failed To Retrieve Share List From Server

I have been having off and on issues with my samba file shares. I am sharing a NTFS formated hard drive where the mount point is in my home directory, as well as a printer connected via USB. I am to the point where printing works (using it as an ipp print share, samba is configured for it, but I don't know if it works or not), and I can access the shared folder from Windows, but I can't access the shared folder from any Ubuntu machine. I get the error:

Fedora Networking :: Unknown Samba Password - Use Samba For File Sharing Like On A Windows Home Network

Jul 17, 2010

I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.

My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.

The xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the ip address of the station accessing the samba share I assume.

Server :: File Server For Windows - Mount More Than One Samba Shares As Network Disk

Jun 17, 2011

I want to setup a Linux File Server for a small windows network (around 50 users). I do know that I am gona need Smb service/pkg for that. I haven't used Samba for a while now and as per the best of my knowledge, entire communication (including usernames and passwords) between a samba server & windows client machines will be plain text. Is there any way to secure all this communication??

Secondly, if i remember correctly, MS windows wont let me mount more than one samba shares as network disk when all my shares can be accessed by different smb users with different passwords?? is there a solution to this problem? OR may be if there is any other package available for this purpose so that i wont have to use samba?

Server :: Extend Rights In Samba For Enterprise File Server?

Jun 17, 2009

I am trying to implement a NAS running Debian to replace the Windows 2003 file server.We implemented the system and we integrated it with the active directory. Is it possible to manage the access rights using windows tools and get the same amount of detail(not the right word) on access.As an example, we have the following folder structure:

Teams&Projects All users list, admins full
Team1 All users list, admins full, some users modify
Project1 All users no access, admins full, some modify, some list

I have read some articles on the internet that this is possible but I do not have enough information to implement this.

Ubuntu :: Auto Backup To Samba File Server

May 8, 2010

I just switch back to ubuntu after running the windows for about a 6 months again, new laptop, programs needed in windows, either way I'm back. What I had setup in windows were specific files that would auto backup to my samba file server when the network was detected. I'm looking to do the same in ubuntu now. Basically I'm thinking of writing a script to backup the files, only thing I'd be stuck with is how to tell the script to run when I connect to the network at home? Is their software already designed for this.

Ubuntu :: Connect To Samba Printer And File Server With Lubuntu?

Mar 9, 2011

My university provides instructions for connecting to their printers and network shares in Ubuntu. They work pretty smooth, but I've run into a couple of problems when trying to follow these instructions in Lubuntu:

1. Windows Printer via Samba printer is missing under Add-->Network Printer in the printer utility (system-config-printer 1.2.3, same one as in standard Ubuntu) I'm guessing I need to install some samba related packages that standard Ubuntu includes by default, but which ones?

2. To access network disks in standard Ubuntu, for example your pesonal space, you select Go-->Location in Nautilus and enter an address of the format smb://something.university.domain/resource. How can I access such locations with PCManFM?

Server :: Samba Share File Permissions?

Mar 19, 2011

I have set up a computer to use as a file server using Samba. I attached a 1TB hard disk to it and had the system to mount it automatically. I have 4 user accounts which will be able to access this network share. An administrator account is called "server". I'll call them user1, user2 user4. This is the folder structure:

+-/mnt/FILES
+-BACKUP
backup files (accessible only to "server" user)
+-MUSIC
music1.mp3 (read only files for all users)
music2.mp3

[Code]...

I don't know which groups I should create. I'm having a hard time setting file/folder permissions. And I wanted to know how to set Samba so that it won't ask for a password when accessing public/group files, but asks for it when accessing private user files.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Windows File Server W/ Samba On Fedora 11?

Mar 29, 2011

I'm trying to load a HP Proliant w/ Fedora 11 and setting up as a WFS using Samba. However, I'm a bit confused on how to do it. Right now I have 2 36.4GB drives in RAID 1+0 and 4 146.8GB drives in a RAID 5 config. I wanna use the smaller drive for the OS and the bigger drive for the storage. I've managed to load the OS fine, the problem is I can't figure out how to mount the 4 146.8GB drives as a single logical volume and set Samba to use it. Right now all the RAIDs are setup using the built-in Compaq Smart Array utility (or whatever it's called) that's built into the SCSI hardware or BIOS.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File-sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2010

I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
netbios name = oak
security = share

[Code]....

I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing The Samba File / Directory?

Aug 1, 2010

I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server.
Two users: chris and gretchen
Directory to share: Music
Music resides in chris' home folder.

I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:

Created user accounts for each
Created Samba accounts with passwords for each
Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it
Assigned the family group to the Music folder.
Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.

chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba To Replace Windows File Server In Active Directory?

Jul 22, 2010

We have a couple of Windows file servers that just share files. It is all they do. We'd like to use Ubuntu on two replacement servers allowing Windows XP and Windows 7 clients to access the files. Our network is active directory based due to Exchange and homegrown .NET apps, so it is important that active directory is used to authenticate the clients. Samba doesn't need to be a pdc or bdc, but provide pass through authentication.I understand that Samba can communicate with active directory through security-ads and security-domain.

Here are my questions to see if I should proceed:1) Folder permissions:If we move all our files to the Ubuntu server how do we set folder permissions and will we see the active directory accounts when we do this?2) Skipping ubuntu accounts: I know the domain and ads allow you to skip creating ubuntu accounts, right? If not, how do you keep the passwords synchronized?3) Easiest way? Is there a very easy way to pull this off that I've missed? My goal is to eliminate the Windows based file servers while ensuring the admin part of it is as easy as possible.To date I've been able to get the sharing to work with an ubuntu account mirroring the active directory account. I've been able to get Samba to talk to the pdc, but not successfully through domain security. ADS security was a complete cluster with winbindd
