I'm setting up a home server using Ubuntu Server 12.04Lts and I'm trying to connect my Windows 7 desktop to it. However when I try to connect from my windows 7 PC I get a message saying "Windows cannot access \Unbutuserver\Shared Drive Check the spelling of the name"
I'm using the following configuration file
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP #(Set this to your Windows workgroup) netbios = WORKGROUP #(Set this to your Windows workgroup) security = share [Shared Drive] #(Set this to the name you want the shared folder to have) comment = entire shared drive #(Comments about the shared folder) path = /netstorage #(Path to the shared folder or mount-point of harddrive) read only = no guest ok = yes writable = yes
When I run testparm I get the following
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[glbal]"
Global parameter workgroup found in service section!

NOTE: Service glbal is flagged unavailable.

Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions [global] idmap config * : backend = tdb [glbal] available = No [Shared Drive] comment = entire shared drive #(Comments about the shared folder)
path = /netstorage #(Path to the shared folder or mount-point of harddrive) read only = No guest ok = Yes
All I'm trying to do is make the "Netstorage" directory, where my RAID5 array is mounted, available to my Windows PC over the network.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated
