I've been trying to figure this out for some time and can't quite nail it
down, despite searching the internet, and a couple of samba books. Here
I'm running "Version 3.4.3-3.3.1-2341-SUSE-SL11.2" of Samba on OpenSUSE
Here are some relevant excerpts from my smb.conf file:
security = ADS
winbind separator = +
log level = 2
comment = X Drive Repository
path = /share/samba/domain/home
browseable = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
valid users = @OURDOMAIN+smb (this is a group)
inherit acls = no
hide unreadable = no
read only = no
I have AD authentication running via winbind, and the "Kerberos" element is
So, "wbinfo -g" produces all groups in the same format as entered in this
The filesystem "path =" directory has been chown'd to my name+that domain
group(of which I am a member).
Also, I "chmodded" it to 0777 for testing.
When I try accessing this share from windows "Run" or Konqueror on another
linux, I get this on the server:
[2010/06/07 09:41:37, 2] auth/auth.c:310(check_ntlm_password)
check_ntlm_password: authentication for user [me] -> [me] ->
[2010/06/07 09:41:37, 0] smbd/service.c:1009(make_connection_snum)
'/share/samba/domain/home' does not exist or permission denied when
connecting to [xdrives] Error was Permission denied
Copy pasting the entry “'/share/samba/domain/home'” right out of the above:
ServerName:~ # ls -lah /share/samba/domain/home
drwxrwxrwx 23 OURDOMAIN+me OURDOMAIN+smb 584 Jun 3 10:06 .
I earlier changed the mountpoint of this partition to /share as /srv wasn't
working. Just now, I put in "path = /home" as a reality check, and remotely
accessed \\<server.ip>\<folder>, and it succeeded. I only received an error
message when trying to create a new folder.
What am I missing?
