I've had Samba setup on a Linux CentOS 5.5 server for the past 2 weeks. All of a sudden today it stopped working and I can't figure out why!!
First off I'm running the package "samba3x", version 3.3.8-0.52.el5_5. My configuration file is as follows:
[global] load printers = No netbios name = MyServer default = global path = /home wins server = 10.1.1.2 # windows pdc workgroup = workgroup os level = 20 encrypt passwords = yes security = share winbind separator = + available = No [In] writeable = yes admin users = smbuser path = /home/myUser/www/share/1 valid users = smbuser public = yes available = yes
The myUser/, www/ and share/ folders are all set to mode 755 and owned by myUser. The 1/ folder is mode 777 and owned by smbuser.
Windows returns "System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found." when I try to run the command: "net use \MyServer\In /user:smbuser smbuser".
However, if I change the config to use /home/smbuser as the path instead, it works fine! The smbuser/ folder is using 700 and is owned by smbuser. So even though the 1/ folder is using mode 777 and is owned by smbuser, it doesn't work.
Can anyone tell me why please? Thanks in advance.
