What am I doing wrong?  I can not attach a windows XP machine or win2K to a Samba box.  I can attach to a RH9 samba server fine but not Fedora 4 or Umbuto .  I am sure I have user rights set fine in Samba and the shared directory.  On the XP pro workstation I sometimes get a popup box with guest filled in and a password is needed .
On the Win2K machine I get  "the network name can not be found ." or share is not accessible, the network name can not be found.

I should explain that I a not running a domain, I have plain server client setup.  I was able to start winbind but not able to get it to load automaticaly at startup. Just runningit has not helped.  I still get a popup window titled Connect to bench ("bench" is the name of my server) and in that window is the username greyed out with BENCH\Guest filled in and the password box awaiting somebodys elses password, none that I have created because I have tried them all and nothing works <g>  I have struggled with this off and on for 3 months and usually am pushed for time and jsut setup a RH9 box for a customer instead. I am led to believe it is a authtentication issue.  I can see all the shares created and I have added security = share in the smb.conf file to make sure it was not rights issue.

"the network name can not be found" that's mean your win2K or your XP can't find/resolve the hostname "bench".

try use the "start" and "run" in your windows (win2K or XP) and keep in the ip address of that server (bench) eg "\\10.0.0.11\" what's the result? will it ask you for the username and password?? or just show you the contents of that server?? for doing this at lease you know your windows (win2k or XP) can connect to the samba server or not.

Once you can connect to the samba server by using ip, so try put the hostname and ip into the hosts table of your windows, and try using the hostname again.

I just did this, and it does the same comes up with a login box same as before withthe user name filled in. This time with 192.168.168.7\Guest and waiting for password.  I have tried adding it to the host file before and just checked it is still there.

ok that's mean you can connect the samba server, how you add the users into the samba server?? or did you??

have you add the user into your samba server for example user1 with password "abc123" you should add into the smbpasswd file by

smbpasswd -a user1
samba password: abc123
reentry password: abc123

so when the user1 logon in your winXP or Win2k there should not need any user login for your samba server.

I did add user once with GUI interface that comes with Fedora and than added it witht he GUI interface to SAMBA.
I also used Webmin to manage all of my customer boxes (have about 12 of them now, all RH9) I am used to the webmin interface, so I added user with it and brought it over to to samba with webmin also it did not work ..  When I get back this morning from apointment I will add it manually on the box and try it again.

Try to disable the firewall (at least temporarily) on your FC4 box

/etc/init.d/iptables stop

If you can then connect to your server it is the firewall blocking your ports needed for samba (tcp ports 139, 445 and udp ports 137 and 138).

check in the samba config where the share is being stated and add the following

EXAMPLE:

[downloads]
comment = Downloads folder
path = /root/downloads
create mask = 0644
#force create mode = 0644
directory mask = 1777
#force directory mode = 1777
read only = no

Wayne

I was sure when I did the install I told it no firewall.  Well it was running and I stopped it.
I still can not login.
I used Wayne's sugestion of the samba share and I see it but when atempting to login to it up pop the login window with username shaded out and
bench\Guest entered in there. waiting for me to enter a password.

paul is the user that should be in there!  not guest.   I still think it is a verfifying problem.

On my win2K I get the regular longin box with user name and password but when I enter in Paul and my p/w it comes right back to the login screen. It does not take it either..

I want to thank all of you for giveing me ideas here, I have got to get this solved as I want to use these in new server installs at customers.

worthwhile trying to see whether the share is even visible, by using:

smbclient -L \\ipaddress

This will give you confidence that the share even exists on the network before trying to deal with any authentication and permission problems.

how you add the users into your samba server??

1st you have to add user(s) to the linux box, afterward add samba server user(s)

useradd user1    <--- for linux box

smbpasswd -a user1   <---- for samba server

both will ask you for key in password twice, have you do that??

Since you can connect to the samba server, now it's come to user(s) verification, can you also post your smb.conf here may be it can help us to dig out something.

"On my win2K I get the regular longin box with user name and password but when I enter in Paul and my p/w it comes right back to the login screen. It does not take it either.."

do you mean the user Paul also can't login to your win2K pc?? and Paul is the user need to login into the samba server??

did user Paul has the login profile in win2K??

try add something like below in your smb.conf  Global  parameters


        security = user
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n * passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        unix password sync = Yes

Changing the "security =" to user now pops up a correct login box on my XP Pro machine asking for user name and password, I type in paul and my password and it pops right back on the screen. It is still not taking it.  Just for kicks, i tried a new XP Home notebook this morning does the same exact thing.

Well we are narrowing down the possibilities <g>

On the linux box make sure you are root, go through the smb.conf again here is mine at the bottom also VERY VERY important use the following command on the folder you are sharing...

chmod 0777 /path/folder
chmod 0777 /root/downloads  <--------- MUST DO (mine just worked)



# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
;   server string = Samba Server

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
;   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

# if you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
;   printing = bsd

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
;  guest account = pcguest

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
 log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' above.

# elections. The default value should be reasonable

# and the /etc/resolv.conf file. "host" therefore is system configuration
# dependant. This parameter is most often of use to prevent DNS lookups

take the "chmod 0777 /root/downloads" out of the config that command should only be used once in the terminal.
Remove the ";" symbol from ; name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast

restart samba and networking just to be safe and try again...

use the following command to test the smb.conf file

testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf

that should tell you if you have a problem with it... also what dist are you using ubuntu or RH9

if ubuntu make sure you are root... you can log in a a user witch will give you...

username@pc:

then type in command sudo -i to be prompt for password and type in previous user password in and voila you are root...

there are way to many premission denied errors - i don't like it.

I'd just like to make a comment, why are you installing such an old and not officially supported OS? It's almost like using windows 2k when you could use vista! The successor of RH9 is Fedora-Core 5, or you could also use another distro like SuSE. SuSE I believe has good tools to help you manage a samba server, and I think also FC5 has better tools for that than RH9.

[2006/04/05 07:31:50, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:startsmbfilepwent(279)
  startsmbfilepwent_internal: failed to set 0600 permissions on password file /etc/samba/smbpasswd. Error was Permission denied
  .Unable to open passdb database.

Do you still have the same error after with the help of Wayne??

Do you have the firewall setup in your XP or Win2K?? if yes, turn it off  and try again.

Ok ...
When I checked out all the logs (Thanks to Wayne for pointing them out to me)  I noticed lots of errors .   I had  a friend log in to check it through Webmin and he found lots of these errors.. "failed to set 0600 permissions on password file /etc/samba/smbpasswd" and did a search on it and found out it was SELinux causing the problem.  link to this is http://groups.google.com/group/linux.debian.devel/browse_thread/thread/7333d873997d3a81/86fec7ffeae4ac4b?lnk=st&q=failed+to+set+0600+permissions+on+password%0D%0Afailed+to+set+0600+permissions+on+password+file+%2Fetc%2Fsamba%2Fsmbpasswd&rnum=1&hl=en#86fec7ffeae4ac4b

i reinstalled Fedora4 with out the SELinux and all is fine now I can access it from all machines. I am sure there must be a way to manage SELinux if you have it installed but it will take a little research to do so..
