I'm new to red hat and samba so this may be a basic question. I recently changed a root password, afterward there were issues with folders shared with Samba. I managed to fix this to a degree but basically we need 2 shares, let's call them data1 and data2. Data1 is sharing fine with no problems at all but as soon as i add data2 as a share in samba users can no longer access data1. Can anyone let me know how to fix this so I can have both folders sharing without issue. thanks

yes data1 is fine, when i add data2, data1 stops sharing but data2 becomes available.

I have tried changing the share name and i've moved the data2 folder to a new directory with same results.

I haven't checked those logs but should be able to do that today.

I'll get the smb.conf posted later in the day when I'm onsite. i'll also check the logs.

At the moment there are no passwords.
