Hi All , 
This Is Babin Lonston 
Facing a Small trouble for last 2 days , Im using Centos 6.3 and only the purpose of using centos is to use samba Service , Centos 6.3 machine assigned with a Static IP address of ( in Local area , And have the hostname with (sambafileserver), Created a folder public/
Created a smbpasswd -a root Created a smbpasswd -a sysadmin 
[root at sambafileserver /]# ll -ld public/drwxrwxr-x+ 2 root root 4096 Jul  5 16:08 public/
And this Have shared for client machines and even i can access the share in all client machine and i have mounted the Share in client machine , its mounted inside the home directory of all client machines 
mount  -t cifs // /home/sysadmin/public/
And fstab entry too given as 
// /home/sysadmin/public cifs username=sysadmin,password=admin123$,rw,_netdev 0 0
After a Restart its Automatically mounting into the specifed Directory were i have mounted ..But i can't Create a Folder inside /home/sysadmin/public which was mounted from //

Selinux status
[root at sambafileserver /]# sestatusSELinux status:                 enabledSELinuxfs mount:                /selinuxCurrent mode:                   enforcingMode from config file:          enforcingPolicy version:                 24Policy from config file:        targeted

[global]	# ----------------------- Network Related Options -------------------------## workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH## server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field## netbios name can be used to specify a server name not tied to the hostname## Interfaces lets you configure Samba to use multiple interfaces# If you have multiple network interfaces then you can list the ones# you want to listen on (never omit localhost)## Hosts Allow/Hosts Deny lets you restrict who can connect, and you can# specifiy it as a per share option as well#	workgroup = MYGROUP	server string = Samba Server Version %v	;	netbios name = MYSERVER		interfaces = lo eth0 	hosts allow = 127. 192.168.1. 192.168.0. 192.168.2.	

# ----------------------- Standalone Server Options ------------------------## Scurity can be set to user, share(deprecated) or server(deprecated)## Backend to store user information in. New installations should # use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards # compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.
	security = user	passdb backend = tdbsam
