I've been running Samba 2.2.1a for a year + with no problems whatsoever. It
ran on Mandrake 8.2 ans was set up to share the users home directories amd a
single shared folder called public.
Recently, we upgraded to mandrake 9.2 with Samba 2.2.8a and used the same
config file that we'd backed up from the earlier installation.
The users home directories were accessible from the Windows 98 box and via
LinNeighbourhood on the Linux boxes. When it came to the shared folder,
clicking on it led to a password window which when OK'd gave the message:
The share name cannot be found.
I tried upgrading to Samba 3.0.2 and rebuilding the smb.conf but it makes no
difference. The user on the Linux box is legit and in the write group. I've
also done smbpasswd.
No other users can access the share either from Linux or Windows.
I'm at home now and don't have access to the server but tell me what files you
need and I'll post them.
