I have a basic LAN at home, and am trying to share a raid drive mounted on my Fedora 17 machine to Windows 7 via samba.
I can browse to my home directory (ie: through the
homes share), but not to the raid drive.
Here is a dump from my log:
$ cat /var/log/samba/log.steve-pc [2013/02/21 20:49:01.512517, 0] smbd/service.c:1055(make_connection_snum) canonicalize_connect_path failed for service raid, path /mnt/raid
Here is my samba version:
$ smbd -V Version 3.6.12-1.fc17
I have the following in my
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = NAS samba server %v security = user passdb backend = tdbsam [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = yes writable = yes [raid] path = /mnt/raid/ public = yes writable = yes browseable = yes available = yes create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777
My Windows 7 workgroup is
User, group and permissions I believe are correct?
$ ls -l /home drwx------. 33 steve steve 4096 Jan 31 19:39 steve $ ls -l /mnt drwxrwxrwx. 16 steve steve 4096 Jan 28 18:36 raid
The raid mount is working - I can browse in Fedora and mount via NFS to other Linux machines. In case it's useful, here are the details from my
# raid /dev/md/NAS:0 /mnt/raid ext4 defaults 1 2
I have created a samba user, and authenticated from windows.
If I browse to
\\nas I can see
If I browse to
\\nas\homes I can browse through my home directory, access files etc.
Attempting to browse to
\\nas\raid fails though. It eventually times out saying
Windows cannot access \\nas\raid.
- I know my firewall isn't an issue since I can get through to my linux home directory.
- I know authentication isn't an issue for the same reason.
What am I doing wrong?
