It sounds like the systems attempting to logon to the domain have not been added to the domain. I've seen this error before when a computer is either removed from the domain or the system is not part of the domain and it is attempting to authenticate and join.

For other users with the same problem: Ensure that you have masks set; if they're missing, they'll often default to include +x. Example: [share] create mask = 0644 directory mask = 0755 You'll also need to omit inherit permissions, or set it to no.

Windows implements its shortcuts as .lnk files (typically you don't see the .lnk extension as it's one of the few extensions that remains hidden even if you tell the Folder Settings control panel to display them). When you use shortcuts in Windows, these files are read by explorer.exe to change the current folder when navigating through folders. Many Linux ...

I'd say you have all the necessary packages installed. For questions 2 and 3 the following should do the trick: create mask = 0644 directory mask = 0755 force user = apache force group = root The parameter explanations from SAMBA documentation tell that create mode is just another way of saying create mask, so that's redundant. Same goes with directory ...

I just came across the same problem with my company laptop in my company's network. I have a linux server and was trying to access a samba directory through my laptop with win7. I tried to access the shared directory from other computers with win7 and it all worked ok, but when I tried to access it from my laptop, I got stuck with the username/password ...

Finally got it to work via: sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf and adding the following [printers] use client driver = yes

You can set several groups/users in the valid users (also invalid users) parameters like this: [supo] path = /home/supo valid users = @supo, @trgo read only = No inherit permissions = Yes # works - you are joined to at least one of the group You can also, in case you don't trust someone of that group use invalid users: ...

On the problem machine, open the Credential Manager and remove anything associated with the unavailable samba server.

From your question, it sounds like you're trying to mount the folder in Windows. You need to mount the folder in your CentOS guest. The VirtualBox Manual has a good description of how to do this. The key piece is you have to mount the shared folder using this command: mount -t vboxsf sharename mountpoint

Finally got it to work by invoking: net use P: \\SERVER\folder /savecred /persistent:yes at the command prompt. Checking Windows Credential Manager afterwards, the correct network address of my server was actually SERVER.DOMAIN, wherein DOMAIN was a domain I set arbitrarily on my OpenWRT router. Apparently, net use makes things easier by detecting this ...

Please see this similar question: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/22831/is-there-a-way-to-make-windows-style-smb-share-paths-launch-correctly Also, I can highly recommend StExBar for Windows as a way to get people to copy network locations as UNC paths (not drive-letter paths). If you could also get them to prefix the path when pasting to ...

the problem is that rsync uses the modification time and size of a file as a quick-reference to judge whether or not a file has changed. There is a more detailed and precise way to check whether files have changed and rsync supports that aswell, however if the modification time and size of a file defer in the first place, these "more detailed" checks are ...

OK, I fixed it, and the solution is a bit weird, so I'd appreciate some explanation in the comments :-). I withheld a bit of information in the question, because I thought it was not important and didn't want people to only focus on that bit. What I'm actually doing is, I'm running samba as a non-privileged user on port 1445. Then I created a loop-back ...

"I'd still appreciate knowing what could have caused the problem, though, as with my (fairly limited, admittedly) knowledge of how a network works this simply shouldn't have been possible." Either the switch is defective or there are ARP cache problems between the computer or switch or both. Really nothing impossible. I see stuff like this all the time. I ...

I feel your weekend pain, especially with a problem that should be simple. I would first clear out the machine's ARP cache: netsh interface ip delete arpcache Then I would clear the same machine's DNS cache: Ipconfig /flushdns You can also remove the network device entry in device manager. Be sure to reboot. If there is the possibility of shutting down the ...
