  1. Permission Issues on mapped drives

    Hi,
    I am running Samba 2.2.x on a redhat 7.2 system, and am having a small
    isue with one user.
    Upon logging on each user is mapped a drive H: which maps their "My
    Documents" folder to a win2k file server which is also a workstation.
    Now with all users but 1 the mapped drives work as required with the
    proper permissions, but the one user always gets an access denied even
    when the permissions for the share are wide open. Any assistance would
    be good, Thanks.

    Apart from this one issue Samba works great!!!!!


  2. Re: Permission Issues on mapped drives

    Well, I have a similar problem with Samba 2.2.0 on Solaris and with W2K SP4.
    I found that if I disconnect the drive maps and reconnect it works well.
    However, you should add the Samba server information in "host" and "lmhost"
    files in W2K ( \winnt\system32\drivers\etc path). So please let me know how
    it works out for you.

    Hi,
    Thanks
    I have disconnected and reconnected rebooted the workstation and still access
    denied. The host and lmhost info I will check but I have a feeling that this
    will not solve the issue. Any other ideas!

    Do the users logon to a w2k workstation and have a mapped drive to another
    w2k workstation ? How does the Samba system work into this ? Is it a PDC ?

  5. Re: Permission Issues on mapped drives

    The users log into win2k pro machines, and Samba is the PDC, and the drive is
    mapped to another win2k machine. All users log into domain accounts, all local
    machine accounts are inactive. Only the one user has the problem. The user
    logs into the the win2k machine that holds the shares. There are many users
    with only a few machines so roaming profiles are a necessity.

    here is the configuration

    I'm would try to determine if the error is with his account, or with the
    system holding the shares.

    I assume he logs on to the domain the same as the others. Does he have the
    same problem is he logs on from another system (account problem) ? or does
    everybody have the same problem if they logon from the system that has the
    shares (system problem) ?

  8. Re: Permission Issues on mapped drives

    This user ONLY uses the one machine so a workaround has been done, he just
    doesn't access through the share, accesses locally (one other thing this user
    has no problems accessing any other shares only his own share), all other users
    use any of the machines and they have no problems accessing any shares through
    the network or locally, I believe it could very well be an account problem but
    I'm not sure where to start ( samba issue or win2k issue ), or even where to
    look I have perused the samba log files with no avail, the configuration seems
    to be correct.

    ; users home
    logon drive = H:
    logon home = \\main\%u

    I get an error when I try to create a home directory like this on a w2k DC.
    It tells me the network path wasn't found. The requires the format
    \\system\share\username. I guess the question is, where are the home
    directories being created on your system ? off the root directory ? You have
    a workaround, but if you have time, move the home directories to a subfolder
    and try this format to see if it solves the problem.

  10. Re: Permission Issues on mapped drives

    The problem is on all machines for this user. This is an account issue.
    The homes are set up on the linux box but are not used as this machine has
    limited resources.
    Shares are set up on the win2k machine for each user when the account is created
    and these shares are where the users keep all there files. Now I guess the best
    resolution would be to remove the account and create a new one.
