    Default Help me get samba to work on 11.1?


    This should have been easy. I started smb and nmb and copied my smb.conf
    file from 11.0 (which worked great) and I have no shares. Bummer!

    To be precise, smb is running:


    Code:
    --------------------
    ps -A | grep smb
    6161 ? 00:00:00 smbd
    6162 ? 00:00:00 smbd

    --------------------


    the smb.conf file appears to be valid:


    Code:
    --------------------
    testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Processing section "[virtualbox]"
    Processing section "[mailbox]"
    Loaded services file OK.
    Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
    Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

    [global]
    netbios name = BUDDA
    server string = Samba
    security = SHARE
    guest account = pcguest
    os level = 1
    lm announce = Yes
    domain master = Yes
    wins proxy = Yes
    wins support = Yes
    preload = yes
    guest ok = Yes

    [virtualbox]
    comment = Data Share
    path = /media/fat32/data/
    read only = No
    guest only = Yes
    hosts allow = 192.168.178., 127.0.

    [mailbox]
    comment = Public Share
    path = /media/fat32/public/
    read only = No
    guest only = Yes
    hosts allow = all

    --------------------


    but there are no shares:


    Code:
    --------------------
    smbstatus -v
    using configfile = /etc/samba/smb.conf

    Samba version 3.2.4-5.2-1985-SUSE-CODE11
    PID Username Group Machine
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Opened /var/lib/samba/connections.tdb

    Service pid machine Connected at
    -------------------------------------------------------

    No locked files

    --------------------


    Any ideas? I have tried putting in sample smb.conf files with the same
    results. I just don't see what's going on, and could use some
    suggestions. Thanks!

    - John

    Hi. I had no shares on my 11.1 box until I read this sticky: 'Opening
    Samba ports in the Firewall in openSUSE 11.1 - openSUSE Forums'
    (http://tinyurl.com/937jqw). smbstatus does only show a share when
    someone is currently connect to it. Good luck!

    smbtree -N is better for looking around the network. Including looking
    at yourself from the server.

    11.1 has a bug that stops the firewall from opening via Yast, as
    supertimorplusfort found.

    Well, that got it done. It took several permutations of order and
    restarting - I really don't know why it didn't solve the problem on the
    first attempt. In frustration I gave up and turned the firewall off. My
    shares showed up, then, and and when I subsequently turned the firewall
    back on the shares remained. They have survived several further
    restarts, so I guess they are good to go.

    Weird. Thanks for the help!
