Default Share / Home folder problem


Hi folks,

I have a RHEL9 server running samba, and all is working very well. I have people's home folders created as symlinks to a disk volume, located at /mnt/vault/profiles/username.

Command line/SSH/telnet, everything works perfectly.

If I access the server from a windows box, I see all of the shares, and they work as intended. However each user also sees a root share named their username.

Eg, I go to \\myserver and I see:

Share1
Share2
Share3
bobjones

Now, I know 'bobjones', the home directory, is actually share1\profiles\bobjones. If I go to that, I get in just fine. But if I click on the root share, I get a login box that doesn't accept my user credentials.

The same happens for every user - a root level share of their username, that doesn't accept their credentials.

Any help in removing this phantom share, or at least aligning it with the proper credentials, would be muchly appreciated. Thanks!

Is this an NT box or 9.x windows box you're trying to reach from? You may have to do something like:

MachineName\username

when logging in to the share.

I've tried that, as well as every other credential that I can think of, and it's still giving me the boot.

Thank you though.
