Thread: Samba in 11.3

  1. #1

    Default Samba in 11.3

    I recently upgraded to 11.3 and must say am highly disappointed. Between the multitude of problems, and sudden lack of long standing tools ( Sax2, system repair, loss of functionality in software installer), this to me has been a major step backward.

    Now I have found out Samba as well has stopped working, sort of. I can still copy from windows share to my Suse box, however copying from Suse to the windows share now results in an error, the details for which just say invalid argument.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated in getting this working properly again.

    Also note there are no logs in /var/logs/samba so I don't really have a clue whats happening.

    So, why not show use your smb.conf file and tell us about the Windows computer types you are trying to communicate to. I have a Samba write for openSUSE 11.2, but I use the same setup under openSUSE 11.3. I am planing on a rewrite in the future for some changes, but nothing is there that will stop it from working with openSUSE 11.3.

    Well it worked for me in 11.1, and later when I upgraded to 11.2, it only stopped working after upgrading to 11.3, on same network with same shares etc...So I'm nopt sure why the smb.conf would have changed but here it is:
    Code:
    [global]
    	workgroup = DOGSOUT
    	passdb backend = tdbsam
    	printing = cups
    	printcap name = cups
    	printcap cache time = 750
    	cups options = raw
    	map to guest = Bad User
    	logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
    	logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
    	logon drive = P:
    	usershare allow guests = No
    	security = user
    	add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd  -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
    	domain logons = No
    	domain master = No
    	include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
    	ldap suffix = 
    	netbios name = Scoobster
    	wins server = 192.168.0.1
    	wins support = No
    [homes]
    	comment = Home Directories
    	valid users = %S, %D%w%S
    	browseable = No
    	read only = No
    	inherit acls = Yes
    [profiles]
    	comment = Network Profiles Service
    	path = %H
    	read only = No
    	store dos attributes = Yes
    	create mask = 0600
    	directory mask = 0700
    [users]
    	comment = All users
    	path = /home
    	read only = No
    	inherit acls = Yes
    	veto files = /aquota.user/groups/shares/
    [groups]
    	comment = All groups
    	path = /home/groups
    	read only = No
    	inherit acls = Yes
    [printers]
    	comment = All Printers
    	path = /var/tmp
    	printable = Yes
    	create mask = 0600
    	browseable = No
    [print$]
    	comment = Printer Drivers
    	path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
    	write list = @ntadmin root
    	force group = ntadmin
    	create mask = 0664
    	directory mask = 0775

    Aftre further investigation, it seems I can read/write fine from share if I mount them via CLI, so it would seem maybe this is a Fuse/GVFS problem.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry about not responding yesterday. My message notifications got screwed up somehow after seeing online Data corruption errors on the forum. This was very unnerving for me.

    Anyway I would ask what name does your Samba computer go by anyway to other computers? I might suggest you add these two entries under [global]

    Code:
        netbios name = ComputerNam
        server string = Comment About Your Computer
    and I would change:

    Code:
        security = SHARE
    Restart Samba and see if this does any different for you.

    @silenuz do you really have a wins server configured on your network? If that's a "yes" is it a Linux machine or a windows machine? If that's a "no" then your openSUSE box will have difficulty seeing other computers. So is it a yes or a no?
