I'm using smbd version 3.0.28a on ubuntu 8.04.1
uname -a provides
Linux bambi 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP Wed Jun 18 14:43:41 UTC 2008
The issue I have is that I want to have a service called C as defined as
path = /share/MD0/C
browseable = yes
public = yes
invalid users =
read list = guest, @"everyone"
read only = yes
locking = yes
write list = jb, @"administrators"
Which I can't connect to from a Windows XP Service Pack 2 box.
However I can connect via umount.cifs from another linux system.
I can also connect if I rename the service either C$ or D.
If I try from my windows box I get the error shown below
The system cannot find the path specified.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
