I have ubunto desktop 10.04 LTS I installed samba and able to access the share on windows machines. However i want to access the share on 300 windows machine(for example) systems at a time Is it possible.
I try to access my ubuntu machine via my Windows Machine (Samba Server on Ubuntu Machine). Anytime I try to access the machine it asks me for my password...I enter it but it says it is invalid....is there anyway to reset it? I have already tried to remove and purge everything Samba related and then tried reinstalling, but that still didn't do anything
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
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 -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s 192.168.0.0/24 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 445 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s 192.168.0.0/24 -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 137 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s 192.168.0.0/24 -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 138 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s 192.168.0.0/24 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p udp --dport 139 -j ACCEPT

I have Linux installed on one machine with samba running and a second machine running XP. They are going through my router and I am using the same username/passwords for both machines and I have even gone to the point of allowing access to everyone for the share I created and the worgroup in samba is MSHOME just like my XP machine. When I view (or search) my workgroup computers my Linux machine shows up and so do the shares I created but when I try to open them I just get a message that permission is denied and I may not have permission to use this resource. I even tried setting access to the shared folder to 777 but still I can't open this share. Has anyone got any idea of why this is?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop right now. I have an external western digital terabyte drive plugged into it. I am able to see it and view it fine. Let's work with my music folder for example. I want to be able to access this music from my Windows 7 laptop so that I may add it to my itunes. However, when I enter the \servershare from the windows 7 laptop it says that the "server" is found but the "share" seems to be invalid. I've checked this 20 times and setting the share name to "music". I've rebooted 2 times on each computer yet to no avail. If I make a share on the Ubuntu desktop I can access it from the laptop. So it seems like it just gets lost when looking inside the external. This was just working last week, then I had to blow away they win 7 lappy and now it just won't work!
he moved in a new place and there is a huge share on the network machine which runs windows... however he has fedora 10 installed on a desktop pc with a big screen and asked me to configure it so it can access the share... i have almost no experience with fedora and i've been trying to do this for two days now... i installed the samba package, but now what? how to do this because the exact commands are unknown to me... i have the root password and everything else on the network... so i just need to know what ot write in order to be able to mount all the TBs of information on the server...
I have Samba shares on a Red Hat server vmware virtual machine. We just upgraded our vmware tools and vmware hardware to vsphere and now I can't authenticate to the samba shares. It prompts for credentials, but it won't take the login. Has anyone seen this or have any idea how to fix this?
I'm currently using ubuntu on my laptop, and I want to access my windows 7 folders via network and file sharing...but there's this problem...
Everytime I want to connect to my Windows 7 pc, it will just prompt me a "password required for xx pc"...and keep looping on every username/password [afaik from the windows account], and I'm unable to login to it.
Even tho I've set "LmCompatibilityLevel" dword key, 1 or 2 [restarted every set] under LSA..it's still the same thing happens...
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I got my server set up with 10.04, and with everything installed: DHCP, SSH, Samba, VBox, etc.
DHCP, SSH work fine, but I am having problems where I cannot ping the hostname of the machine.
It worked for a few minutes after I got everything installed and now it's not letting me connect via hostname. I can connect fine if I use the IP address. I cannot ping the machine by hostname unless I add it's IP address to the hosts file.
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong with my Samba share. I have set up a directory /samba to serve up some movies, music, etc, on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server box. For now, I have given that directory 777 permissions, along with the subfolders:
Code: drwxrwxrwx 4 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 18:02 Apps drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:02 Music drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-08-14 19:27 Pics drwxrwxrwx 5 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:48 Video This is how my smb.conf file looks like for this particular share:
Code: [share1] comment = share1 browsable = yes path = /samba write list = michal Furthermore, I went ahead and mapped the Samba user to my Linux user account in /etc/samba/smbusers:
Code: michal = "michal" When I try to login from a Windows machine using michal as the username, I can see the folders, but I am unable to create new files on the share. Considering that the file system permissions are liberal on the share directory, I have no clue as to why I'm still getting denied write permission.
I am trying to establish the easiest way to share a folder from an Ubuntu machine to a Windows machine.In the past I have added things to smb.conf and that has all worked fine but what I am trying to do is to figure out what the "new user" way of doing this is so that when I am helping other people I know I am getting them to do the simplest thing.I completely removed samba and reinstalled it so that I didn't have any configuration. Right clicked on a folder and selected "Sharing Options" ticked the "Share this folder box" gave it a name and a comment and ticked the other two boxes.
When I went to the windows laptop then it kept asking for a username/password and nothing worked.Back on the ubuntu machine I did sudo smbpasswd -a [username] and created a blank password. Now from the windows machine I can access the shared folder.Is the smbpasswd step still required? It's very confusing for a new user as there is no suggestion that anything other than right clicking on the folder and choosing the options you want would be required. Is it something to do with the fact that this is an ubuntu machine that has gradually been upgraded through versions and this problem wouldn't have been there from a new install?
I have set up RHEL 5 file server with Winbind and samba services running.I am able to assign and authenticate windows XP users against my RHEL 5 server.No issues.But one or two of my users are using Windows 7 Ultimate edition and they are not able to access my network samba shares.I can view the shares in windows 7 box but trying to access gives me "network access denied error".But i can access the same share in Windows xp machine for the above tested users.Working great but not in windows 7 box.I haven't tested with Vista OS yet.
I've read several threads on the subject but all seem to be related to problems I'm not having, or at least the troubleshooting loses me at some point where my results have differed too many times to ignore.So, I'd like to start from scratch if anyone can help me. I'm simply trying to access a folder shared on Windows 7. The Windows computers on the network have no trouble accessing it with the username and password -- both XP and Win7 systems are able to access the share.I can try going to Places > Network > Windows Network -- but I get "Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server".I can try going to Places > Connect to Server but I get "Cannot display location "smb://192.168.1.8/". Failed to retrieve share list from server." (tried both computer name and local IP)
I currently have Windows Firewall turned off on the server for troubleshooting purposes.I'm pretty new to Linux still -- are there any commands I can report on from Terminal that will help steer me in the right direction?
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
Trying to setup Samba for the first time and am unable to connect to the share from my Windows machine. It is a very basic setup, just trying to setup a single share to use a backup location for my windows files.
I've done the following: 1. Fresh install if fedora 15 2. installed samba rpm -qa | grep samba gives the following:
3. Used samba server configuration to setup the share and create the samba users 4. When I tried to connect from my windows machine I get the error that the server is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource or I get the error "windows cannot access server, check spelling and try again.
Both computers can ping each other. I opened samba ports in the linux firewall and tried to connect again: same error Disabled firewall all together and have the same error. Here is the output from the testparm command
I am using F10 desktop edition, all the computers using windows are able to access the shared folders over lan except me using F10. I have tried many things with smb but still unable to connect.I am new to linux so i dont khow much of its technicalities.kindly suggest how can i be able to access the shared documents ..
My work uses an internal software suite where the data is hosted with a linux server. It uses mysql and samba shares. We are currently opening a new location and need to be able to access the samba shares. We are able to access the mysql databases. The samba shares are used to store various files for the software such as updates, invoices (as pdf files), etc. I've setup vpn connections using windows servers in the past but I can't, for the life of me, get a VPN server setup on our linux server that windows will connect to. I've tried openvpn and pptp. I'd prefer to use the built in windows client to connect.
I am trying to properly mount a samba share in order to access it from a terminal and run a script that I've written over a folder in the share. How could I do that? I tried smbclient but after successfully logging in I couldn't issue the sh command. Isn't it possible to have it mounted in the /mnt folder like a normal filesystem?
Unable to access linux(ubuntu 10.10) share drive on my windows PCIn my office we have few linux (obuntu 10.10) computers and 3 computers running on windows. We have data stored on one of the shared drives of a linux(ubuntu 10.10) system which has samba installed and we are able to access that folder from other linux systems and 1 windows xp system where it asks for user name and password and is able to access the data while in other 2 windows systems (with 1 having xp and 1 having windows 7) we are unable to access the folder because it does not ask for user name and password and it shows an error network drive not accessible as you may not have the permission.
cannot restrict share access to a single user. I've played with the security and valid users options in the smb.conf and I can get it to mount if I remove the valid users option, but this does not provide the access restriction I need. I also left it open and tried making the folder permissions rwx for backupadmin only and that didn't work. I'm using a credentials file which I include below, but I've tried manually entering them in the command too.
[root@aaphst02 /]# mount -t cifs //aapsan01/aapxen01 /mnt/aapxen01 --verbose -o credentials=/root/smbcreds mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//aapsan01aapxen01,ip=10.0.1.34,user=backupadmin,ver=1,rw,credentials=/root/smbcreds,pass=********
I've used Samba for several years and when it works it's great. Unfortunately from time to time it seems to get messed up and either all the 7 machines on my home network can't be seen or I can't access the shares on some. I have 2 Windows XP computers 4 Kubuntu and one Linux Mint KDE, all the latest versions. I'd rather not plough through all the documentation for Samba, but would really like a "model" smb.conf with a few comments about parts that might have legitimate variants. I have researched this with Google searches many times but have failed to find the information I need in concise form.
