Can't connect to fedora share


I am having a very unusual problem that hopefully is something stupid I am missing. I have a fedora16 box being used as file server. The network has a mix of other fedora 15 and 16 plus some windoze machines.

This is a new setup for the server and I put a test folder and shared it from the root directory. everybody can connect and use it fine. When I go to share a full drive that is mounted in the system (the terabyte of storage dedicated on a seperate drive from the boot drive) nobody can access it. Fedora boxes say they can't mount it and windows will say no such share exists however both systems ask for a user and password. I used the same user and pass from the test which still works. Why can't I share a full drive? What am I missing?

1.. samba is set up and working with a directory on the boot drive.
2.. The dedicated data drive is visible, mounted and working on the fedora box
3.. All users can access the testshare without issue
4.. Nobody on the network can access the dedicated data drive
5.. The drive is visible on the network
6.. No messages about bad user or password.

I am stumped.

What are the permissions set on the drive ? Are they set up for access by all that is needed ?


/etc/samba/smb.conf---> Post the output and it may help others help you.

I managed to fix this problem. It seems that selinux needed to get the right permissions for samba. Once set with read write permission in selinux all good.
