Strange SAMBA Issues
Now my question is this, why won't a mapped drive hold the credentials and network path to the SAMBA share? Why am I prompted for network credentials when attempting to access a system share and not a user defined share? Where am I messing up? Right now, the only way that I can access my "Domain Share" is via the root account and only when I attempt to access a system share am I presented with a security logon screen. Where oh where am I messing this up?
Distro: Open SuSE 10
I will hazard a guess that you have the security level set to "user" in the smb.conf global section. In that case, you will always need to enter a password to access the share.
Now, it is possible you did a smbpasswd -a root, which would allow for root access, but if you do the same for yuor user, by creating a samba user account for yourself i.e. smbpasswd -a your_user_name.
If you don't want passwords, set the security level to "share".Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
