I am new to Samba, and I am having problems getting Samba configured
I installed Samba on a Tru64 version 4.0f Server.
My smb.conf file is pretty simple:
workgroup = nmff-net
server string = Samba Server
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
max log size = 50
security = user
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
local master = no
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
# The first share attempt
comment = A test share
path = /tony
public = no
writable = no
valid users = tbrown
After putting smbd and nmbd in the startups and configuring swat in my
inetd.conf and services, I am running into 2 problems.
1. I can not connect via swat as root. I can connect as other users but
when I try as root, or admin, I get
"401 Bad Authorization, username or password incorrect". I even tried
adding the root user to the smbpasswd file by issuing "./smbpasswd -a root".
I still get the error for the root user.
2. I am unable to connect to my share. In network neighborhood from my NT
machine, I can see the server. However, whenever I double click the server
I get "UnixA not available, the network path was not found. From the
command line, if I try net use z: \\unixa\test, I get "the network path was
I also tried security = share but I got the same results.
Initially, when I tried to add the root user I got an error that pointed to
/usr/local/samba/lib/smbpasy. I created that file and did not get the error
after that file existed. I also copied smbpasswd to smbpasy.
What did I do wrong?
