Urgent, hence points - Samba server woes...
Posted on 2006-07-18
I do not have much experience with Samba, and have got stuck setting it up.
I've installed samba one of our machines (yum - Samba version 3.02315 - Fedora Core 4) but it will not authenticate using a known system user. Ideally, we would like all system users to be able to access their home directories.
Currently, I have one share set up, which is the home directory shares. I was on the understanding that once this was set up, it would allow system users to access their home directories by;
a) Connecting to \\servername
b) using their UNIX/Samba username/password
But the authentication fails, and keeps requesting the user/pass.
I am SURE that this is something simple (as ive come across this prob again and again but given up!!!) or it may be that I just don't "get" the concept of Samba.
This is urgent as customer has been waiting, hence max point value.
