Thread: Need help w/ smb.conf

  1. Need help w/ smb.conf

    Here's what I want to do, what I've done, and what's happening.

    What I want to do:

    Export a single filesystem off of a Solaris server, which a small group of
    users will connect to, authenticating with a single shared username/password
    combo, which will be shared among a small group of people. Account will be
    "docs". Users will be using Win2k boxes.

    What I've done: I've set up my smb.conf as follows:

    [global]
    log file = /usr/local/samba.log
    dns proxy = no
    encrypt passwords = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
    null passwords = no
    sync always = yes
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    invalid users = root
    preferred master = no
    interfaces = xxx.19.65.9/255.255.255.0
    writable = yes
    security = share
    workgroup = TEST1
    syslog = 0
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    netbios name = testserver
    guest account = docs
    default = global
    [documentation]
    path = /usr/apache/htdocs/samba
    force group = nobody
    force user = docs

    I've set up an entry for user "docs" in /etc/smbpasswd using the smbpasswd
    command. I've set up a matching one in /etc/passwd, just for good measure.


    What's happening:

    On my W2K desktop, I scroll through the Microsoft Windows Network directory
    until I find my server, and its share. I right click on the share
    "documentation", and then click "Map Network Drive". I click on the
    "Use different user name" option, and enter username "docs" and the
    appropriate password, and then click finish. A dialogue box pops up
    claiming I entered the wrong password. Subsequent retries result in the same.

    The log files are almost empty, and give you clues. They don't even log the
    failed attempts.


    Suggestions?

    Try raising the log level by increasing it to 3. I find its a pretty
    good level. Maybe this will give you a good hint about what is happening.


    log level = 3
