I'm getting killed this morning, since we did a Samba upgrade to one of our production servers this weekend and didn't expect this one.
I have one share that I need unauthenticated access to from a few named workstations. Here's the config:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (x.x.x.x)
# Date: 2013/03/18 14:25:33
encrypt passwords = No
map to guest = Bad User
guest account = pcguest
log level = 3
os level = 8
local master = No
domain master = No
idmap config * : range =
idmap config * : backend = tdb
path = /doclink
read only = No
guest ok = Yes
hosts allow = x.x.x.x
So, from the host that is named on the pubshare share, I should just be able to go to Start --> run, and enter \\server\pubshare and be in, regardless of who I'm logged in as.
I also added the pcguest account into the passdb backend using 'smbpasswd -an pcguest'. And yet, it's still prompting for a password.
I need this to work because several automated processes rely on the share. It works just fine if I flip it back to security = SHARE, but that breaks all the shares on the system for Windows XP clients.
Anyway, huge thanks to anyone who might be able to assist!!
