Question SMB shares to OS X


I have a Redhat 9 server running SMB server and an OS X client. I can connect from the Mac fine with the username that I normally use on my Linux box but not with any other users. I've added the desired users to my Linux machine and gone as far as chmod 0777 on the share. When I try to connect with the other users I get a "error code -43". I dont get why one user can connect fine but none of the others can.

Our environment contains several windows servers that authenticate the windows users and several RH9 servers acting as web servers - dont think that this matters though.

Thanks for your help! I eagerly await it!

did you add linux users or samba users?

i believe (correct me if i'm wrong) that samba has it's own user dbase involving the use of smbpasswd for the password generation/alteration of the users...

try smbadduser to add the samba user if not already done....

let i know

I was using the redhat-config-samba interface to add the users before. Even with using smbadduser though, I get the same errors. Either error code -47 or 5023. I'm going to try some stuff today and if I figure it out, I'll make sure to post it up again

Okay, turns out that this HUGE problem was just that permissions on the root folders were denying other users from accessing the share. stupid stupid stupid . . . Thanks anyways for your help though!

MadTurki,
Please explain the problem you resolved for us neophytes. What do you mean about permissions on the root folders?
Thanks.

The full path to my share was "/home/dmorin/rpms" the "rpms" folder had full permissions to everyone (777) but the "dmorin" folder only had 750 or something like that - anyways, just permission to the owner. What I ended up doing was just creating another share, putting all the users I wanted to have access to that share into a group, and then assigning that group full control over the share.
