Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Write To Samba Shares From Mac?
Nov 5, 2010
This is (I suspect) a Mac OS issue but they've given no help (or replies!) on Mac forums so I'll ask here.I've just got a Mac and I can connect to shares on my Ubuntu (10.04) server, read files and create directories but I cannot write. I get this error:"The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items."I can connect from the command line with smbclinet and write fine. I have tried several different users on both the Mac (cannot write) and Ubuntu clients (can write).Is this something to do with the ._filename files that finder creates? Or is there something wrong with the way I've set up my server? This is the first time I've used it with a Mac client.
Using SuSE 11./4 on two machines. Successfully set up a server to share a folder. The client is able to read files from the folder, but not write to them.the client perspective, the shared folder permissions are read and write if owner, read only for all otherHowever, the server shared folder has been set up for sharing, and the permissions are set for read and write to all.
One more thing. When the client goes into the samba share, it sees the workgroup. Clicking into that, it sees the name of the server computer. Clicking into that,it sees two folders: "profiles" and "users". Clicking into "users" goes into the shared folder. I tried setting the permissions from the client side on the "users" folder using root privileges to allow reading and writing without any success
I have a Natty headless server that I would like to set up shared directories and grant specific users write permissions. I use a Windows 2008 R2 machine with Active Directory for authentication and have created a group GroupWithWriteAccess which I want to have write access to the shared directory. I want all other users to have read only access. I have edited my smb.conf file with the following
The machine is fully setup to work with Windows authentication and I can access shares from the ubuntu machine, it's just sharing local directories with the correct permissions that I can't work out. So far I can access the files from my other machine, but I do not have write access even though I am logged on as a user who is a member of GroupWithWriteAccess.
I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS I have installed Boxee on it that is all and I am trying to set it up as a Samba Server. I have followed the instructions on following page:[URL]..On the box that I am trying to setup as a Samba Server using Nautilus I can view the shares no problem. On another Ubuntu box no such luck. I can get too Windows Network and I can see my workgroup. When I try and open the workgroup I get the following dialogue box for some time: Opening "WORKGROUP". You can stop this operation by clicking cancel. And then this error dialogue box:
Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server I have spent sometime trying to resolve this myself but have had little luck. As far as I know I have no firewalls in place; Ubuntu does not have one by default is that correct? At this time I don't have a Windows computer to try to connect too the server at this time, but plan to in the future that is why I want to use Samba.
I am connecting the two boxes with an D-Link DIR-825 router; both boxes are on the same subnet. Are there settings in the router that could be affecting this?
Last night i updated to 9.10, all good except i can no longer access my samba shares!!
here is the info from log.smbd after i stared it this afternoon

provide support for a small business that uses Windows machines to access files stored on an Ubuntu server which has just been upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04 (32 bit version). Before the upgrade the users accessed their share by this batch file:
net use x: \servernamesharename /user:username
This would then prompt the user for his or her password which they would enter to allow them access to the share.Since upgrading to 10.04, the user gets a "system error 58" stating "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation"If the batch file command is changed to:
net use x: \servernamesharename
The same error message is given. The only work around I have found is to modify the file to read:
net use x: \servernamesharename /user:username password
This is not ideal at all as it makes the password protection useless.When I performed the upgrade I left the smb.conf unchanged. The smb.conf file is:
# # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # # # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
I recently upgraded my ubuntu samba fileserver to 10.04 along with increasing the size of my RAID 1 /home directory.I am using the same smb.conf file setup I have used on intrepid ibis setup and hardy heron setup before that.On my new setup, I can see the ubuntu server on my windows 7 machines, but I can't see the shares and can't access them.In checking the logs (/var/log/samba), one log continues to look for a printer share from one Windows machine that I have not set up on samba yet.
I have found a few people who have reported similar problems online, even a few who have filed bugs, but then they say "my computer started working suddenly. I don't know what happened." so they closed the bug. or "my computer started working after I rebooted my machine." I have rebooted all machines on the network. That doesn't fix it.
I'm having some troubles with my samba shares on a fresh install of Fedora 10 x86_64 on my laptop. The laptop has only the KDE Desktop environment. I'm trying to share between this computer and my homebrew server via a wrt54g linksys router running DD-WRT firmware. The server is running Fedora 9 i386.
The shares on the server can be read by the laptop, and I have been consistently able to mount the server shares on the laptop using mount.cifs, but only when the firewall on the server is down. Shares are only visible between the machines when the firewall is down on the machine containing the share. I set up the shares using the system-config-samba tool, and the firewalls are both set to allow samba server and samba client. I can typically see the laptop from the server, but not the shares, and only when the laptop firewall is disabled. I can access the Laptop shares from the laptop. When trying to mount the laptop shares on the server, a warning message stating that the mount failed appears. Shares show up as correct in both the system-config-samba tool, and the KDE sharing tools. The share shows a "shared" icon in the dolphin browser.
From all that I know, the shares should work perfectly. I've searched the web, perused the man pages and how-to's, and combed through the forums, and everything I've found tells me that the shares should be working. Since they are not working, it leads me to believe that I must have made a mistake someone and not noticed it.
I've a few group shares setup with samba and a PDC (using windows 7 clients) and the home directory for each user gets mounted automatically. I've configured group shares and only members of the respective group have access to them, but my question is how do I tell samba to automount group shares based on the user group?
I am the IT Manager at a research facility. We have a fairly unique network configuration in order to support all of the different projects we have going on. We have Red Hat, Ubuntu, Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Servers 2003, Ubuntu servers, Red Hat servers, and even a few Netgear ReadyNAS and Buffalo Terastations. Over the last few years, I have been migrating all of my users and accounts to a single ACL list, which I chose to be a Windows AD 2003 server. 95% of my users work on Windows platforms and just use ssh tunnels to develop on our linux boxes.
However, i ran in to a problem with our Linux boxes not being able to symbolic link on my Windows 2003 file shares. Of course, this is a problem with Windows not supporting symbolic links. I know 2008 does support this feature, but given the economy and the budget restraints, we cannot afford to purchase the updates we would need, so now I am moving all of my shares to a Ubuntu 10.04 server using Samba. I have joined the server to my AD domain successfully, i can login using my AD credentials, and even assign ownership and group permissions using AD users/groups.
Here is my question.
I would like to keep the AD permission schemes intact. I have several shares that contain folders that have individual permission settings. For example, I have a /shared directory that contains about 50 different folders. Some of these folders I allow my users to write data to, some just read, and others I deny access to complete groups and just allow key groups to access (for example, personnel data should only be accessed by the Administrative staff).
Is there a way to make this work?
I can assign uid and gid manually per folder in Samba, but i would like to have the possibility to add multiple users and groups with permissions to folders, which I do not believe can be done with the standard chown commands. Currently, I can see the folder permissions from my Windows box, but when I try to edit the permission settings, it defaults back to full access. So my AD permissions are not being saved.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and have 5 shares that I have setup for Samba (assume names of share1, ..., share5). I find that shares(2,3,4) are accessible from my MS Windows system, but the share1 and share5 are listed but Windows gives an error accessing them that I may not have permissions.I have reviewed the sharesve the same owner, group, and permissions.Is this a known Samba bug or configuration issue? I have gone through the smb.conf file multiple times as well as examining the directories and do not see what the issue might be.
clean install of Slackware 13.1 64-bit. From day 1 I have been unable to browse Samba servers and shares on my home network. NFS, FTP, SSH, etc all seem to be working fine. I've been updating it regularly in case this was a bug, but I'm not so sure any more.
Reboot in WinXP sp3, I can browse fine. My wife's Win7 laptop works fine. My old Slack 12.2 system worked fine. I have not made any changes to the network other than adding this computer to the mix.

I had an older fedora box (I think it was Core 3) that acted as my file server in my small network (4). It worked fine when I had all XP clients connecting to it. Recently we decided to get all new computers. So now I have a fedora 10 box acting as my file/print server and all Vista Home premium computers as the clients. For the life of me I can not get samba to work. When I try to map the network drives on windows it will not let me authenticate. I install swat and try it that way, still no luck. Here is a copy of my smb.conf file:
Code: # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN # Date: 2009/05/19 21:47:31

Just like the title states, as soon as my server comes up, I see the samba share that I made and can browse it just fine.
I don't see the printer share nor can I print to the shared printer until I execute service smbd restart from an ssh login. Then I see the printer and then I can network print.
Before restarting smbd, I do check to see if it's already running and it is (two instances are running in fact). When I restart smbd, there are still two smbd services running but they have higher PID numbers (and I can then print).
I'm running 10.04. how to make it all start up happily the first time without any intervention from me?
I wrote a little script that will automatically mount two Samba shares to my home directory and I was wondering if a) You guys/gals had any input as to how I could improve on this script and b) Tell me how I would go about having this script automatically execute when I log on via SSH.
#!/bin/sh mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data1 /home/user/Data1 mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data2 /home/user/Data2
I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).
I am working as a Linux administrator in a very small data centre with 5 servers with following routine tasks.
1. Managing SAMBA shares and giving user specific access for the shares. 2. Scheduling backup of some mount points with rsycn to store data in remote hard disk 3. User and group administration, with sudo access. 4. Creating and Managing Xen Virtual machines and giving access to other project teams. 5. Automating some tasks with Shell Scripting. 6. Managing FTP server for user uploads.
I have practiced a lot in my home laptop without RHEL training, Cleared RHCE and LPIC1. I want to do some advanced system admin tasks, but do not have option in my current data centre. With Above skills is it possible to get a job ?
The company I work for, as usual, is Microsoft-centric. I'm attempting to integrate my Ubuntu server into the domain to allow domain users to authenticate to the server and access file shares using Samba. Here's my current configuration:
I've recently switched to Ubuntu from debian, and I'm now running a fresh install of 9.04 32 bit. I have a Windows XP media computer which I would like to be able to browse using smb://. This worked fine on my debian system, but I cannot get it to work on ubuntu. The windows XP machine has a couple of shares, e.g Music. I can access the Music share via smb://, but I cannot write to it. Nautilus just says "Permission denied". I can also see the default shares, e.g. E$, but if I try to open them I am prompted with a password, but no matter what I enter it seems to have no effect. How to proceed?
We have a network with several computer. We have two file servers (don't ask why) an Ubuntu and an XP as well as many clients. Setting shares on Ubuntu was easy and all clients can see them read and write. but I can't get the Ubuntu clients to see the SMB shares on the XP properly. This is my fstab:
I just upgraded to the newest VirtualBox, version3.2.4.r62467 and installed Ubuntu 10.4/64 guest on an Ubuntu 9.10/64 host. I installed the guest additions and set 3 shared drives. I can see them in the "machine folders" names, paths and access modes in the "shared folders" dialog. But, when I try to write to them, I always get Permission Denied!
I mounted it as root: mount -t vboxsf tera /vb/tera It shows up in mtab: root@ubu-10:/vb# grep tera /etc/mtab tera /vb/tera vboxsf rw 0
I can see the listing: root@ubu-10:/vb# ls /vb/tera bak Recycled <snip>
But, the permissions are wrong and can not be corrected. Chmod and chown are ignored?! root@ubu-10:/vb# ll /vb | grep tera drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12288 2010-05-04 09:42 tera/ root@ubu-10:/vb# chown brianp /vb/tera root@ubu-10:/vb# chmod 775 /vb/tera root@ubu-10:/vb# ll /vb | grep tera drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12288 2010-05-04 09:42 tera/
I am running as root: root@ubu-10:/vb# whoami root The VB shared folders dialog, machine folders shows /tera with access Full. /etc/mtab confirms that it is rw
I own it on the host: brianp@trex:~$ ll / | grep tera drwxr-xr-x. 16 brianp root 12K 2010-05-04 09:42 tera Why can't I write to it?
