This has got me stumped!!!
I created a share the other day like I do all the time.
There's about 10 users in the group. All of them can access the share
fine, except for one guy. He's a valid user and has many other share
drives on this system that are working fine. All 10 users are using a
Windows XP platform.
The log.smbd has an entry like this for his requests:
username (192.168.1.145) couldn't find service share-name for the folder
The "for the folder" part of the error stands out to me, but I don't
know what it means.
using smbclient locally (and remotely) I can map to this share using his
the share in smb.conf looks like this
valid users = @share-name @ntadmin
admin users = @ntadmin
force group = share-name
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 0770
any thoughts ?
