Checking SAMBA shares on Solaris 10

Posted on 2008-11-12
Last Modified: 2013-12-27

I'm a complete novice when it comes to this! I have a Windows end user who cannot access a share that points to a Solaris 10 server (cannot find x.x.x.x - verify path is correct). I have access to the Solaris server but do not have an idea on where to start troubleshooting. Please help! :)

I ran a cat /etc/release on the server for information - "Solaris 10 6/06 s10s_u2wos_09a SPARC"

Thanks in advance.

    in the very first place, have a look at your samba configuration file on your solaris server, probably /etc/smb.conf.
    If you don't find an obvious clue there, please post it.

    Thanks anyway. Will re-post if this occurs again.
