    Samba Config


    Hi Guys,

    I have been trying to setup a Samba share now for a number of days and have been reading guides on the net in a attempt to achieve this.

    The box is running CentOS 5 with Samba version 3.0.33.

    When I installed CentOS I created a disk partition named /share and this is where I'd like all the shared documents to be placed.

    Here is the contents of my /etc/samba/smb.conf:

    Code:
    [global]
    workgroup = LINGRAY
    security = user
    
    [files]
    comment = Work area files
    path = /share
    read only = No
    
    [home]
    comment = Home Directories
    path = /home
    read only = No
    Changed the permissions on share folder for test:

    Code:
    drwxrwxrwx   3 craig lingray  4096 Apr 20 13:17 share
    I then created a user account (craig) and set the password within the samba database (smbpasswd -a craig) which was fine. I got my Vista machine and attempted to access the server from run where I was asked for a username and password. This allowed me on to the server but when i try to access share it states that the folder couldn't be opened as the network resource doesn't exist?

    Is there anybody that can help with this?

    Many Thanks,

    Just noticed this in the logs (/var/log/smbd.log) if it helps at all:

    [2010/07/06 11:37:33, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1013)
    '/share' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [files] Error was Permission denied
    It's strange because the linux user and samba user both share the same login credentials and the /share folder is owned by the account as well. I'm really lost with this one.

    I get the same thing when i try to access the home drive as well:

    [2010/07/06 11:41:10, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1013)
    '/home/craig' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [home] Error was Permission denied

    Smile Resolved

    Okay found out what the issue was and thought I'd post it here just in case somebody gets a similar issue. It turned out to be SELinux, disabling that seems to have resolved the issue!

    Now just need to find out why so i can turn it back on :S
