cant access shared files on centos 5.2

Recommended Posts

Good Day All

 

Can any one please help me.

 

I have installed centos 5. to my workgrouop. I then sreate users in centos and made the usename and passwords same as the windows machines. I then added the users to samba.

Now the tricky part comes in. I create to shared folders 1. backup and 2. test. In the sambe configuration i selected each directory to share and selected every one. (nb:because i can see see the users to select access to it seems that there is a bug in samba) .

 

On my windows machines i can see the centos machine. When i click on it it asks for a user name and password which i enter. I then can see the two files shared and a printer file. When ever i select on tho shared files i get a error

"windows cannot access \\gonowsa\backup check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network, To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose" The only file that i can access is the printer one. I have tried every thing and just can come right

 

This is my smb.conf file

 

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the

# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed

# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too

# many!) most of which are not shown in this example

#

# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba,

# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:

# http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf

#

# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the

# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from:

# http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf

#

# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)

# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #

# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you

# may wish to enable

#

# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"

# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.

#

#---------------

# SELINUX NOTES:

#

# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please run:

# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on

#

# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:

# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on

#

# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it as

# "samba-share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.

# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already have

# been marked with othe SELinux labels.

#

# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has

#

# Set labels only on directories you created!

# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path

#

# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of the

# following (read-only/read-write):

# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on

# or

# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on

#

# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please

# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be

# allowed to run them.

# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context

# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================

[back up]

browseable = yes

 

 

as you can see the last two foldes are test and backup, should i add something here to maybe make it accesseble? Please advise

First thing i see is that your work group is commented out.

Plus your shares do not have valid users assigned..

 

Share example.

 

 

 

[test]

comment = test share

path = /home/test

valid users = username

public = no

writeable = no

printable = no

create mask = 0765

 

Also did you use smbpasswd to setup these users in the samba user files ?

Good Day Sir

 

1. Thank you for the quick reply. I do not understand your first part where you say that my workgroup is commented out. Please advise what I should do to fix this

2. I have set up the smbpasswd to these users in the samba user files as shown here below.

 

# Unix_name = SMB_name1 SMB_name2 ...

root = administrator admin

nobody = guest pcguest smbguest

 

gonowsa = gonowsa

Riaz = Riaz

michelle = michelle

 

3. i have changed the permissions in the smb.conf file as your example but still have the same problem.

 

[test]

path = /home/michelle/Desktop/test

comment = test share

valid users = gonowsa

; guest ok = no

; writeable = no

; printable = no

create mask = 0765

 

[back up]

path = /home/gonowsa/Desktop

valid users = gonowsa

; guest ok = no

; writeable = no

; printable = no

create mask = 0765

 

 

[gonowsa]

comment = home dir

path = /home/gonowsa

guest ok = yes

writeable = yes

; printable = no

create mask = 0765

; browseable = yes

; browseable = yes

 

 

Once again thank you in advance for the advice

 

Regards
