Hi again everybody.
Ive gone further in my little samba share project, and ran into new problems i cant seem to find solutions to on google.
My mount “share” works great.
But i created 3 new subfolders in /share and mounted 3 new harddisks in the folders. i see them all fine from console and have full rights but they dont show when i access “share” from a windows client.
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba
netbios name = Medie
security = user
map to guest = bad user
dns proxy = no
ntlm auth = true
log file = /var/log/samba/%m
log level = 1
path = /share/
read only = no
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
Your right about that and ill look into that.
But the problem persists though.
I actually cant access any of the drives from samba at all. Now i just tryed to share a folder i called render1 where drive1 is mounted. I cant access that at all. I cant figure out what ive done wrong. Is it in the fstab or how come i get this problem. Im fairly new to fedora.
Ive never had this problem in debian, ubuntu or arch linux.
It was some guide i found for full guest access without any hassle.
Do you believe the problem is the ownership? Ill try to add a normal user and give that user ownership and see if i can mount the harddisks. I just cant find the logic to why i can access the folders on the samba just not the harddisk mounted folders?
Not having a Windows system at hand, I tested with smbclient and it seems to work in this way. Even a legal user creates nobody files on the share. No idea whether SELinux can block things on a mounted drive, if enabled.
If possible via direct view or ssh, you can stop the smb service on the server, and start smbd in foreground with:
smbd -d 2 --debug-stdout -F --no-process-group
Increase the debug level until you get an idea why it does not work. Or examine the smb logfiles.
