Unhappy New approach to samba implementation


I have decided to switch to suse Linux version 9.0 as a test bed for our enterprise evaluation of Linux (formerly I was using RH 9.0). I am trying to bring up Samba on the file server and I think I am close but have an issue that I don’t understand and since I am so new to this ( simple stuff like radar and jamming systems I understand) I figured I better ask somebody that knows something.

My smb server is up and running, I can connect to the shared volume from a Linux workstation and can see the sample document. I can see the Linux box from my windows XP workstation but when I try to connect, I am prompted for a user ID and Password. When I enter the Linux user ID and Password the login box on the windows machine will replace the user ID with something like: test1/user1 – were “test1” is the machine name and “user1” is the user id entered. Although the user id and password entered are valid, I am never able to log into the smb server. Smb.config is very simple”

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
os level = 2
security = user

[vol1]
path = /mnt/vol1
guest ok = yes

Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
Thanks
Rick

have you created the samba user account (or migrated a linux user to a samba user)? check out www.webmin.com it's prob already installed on your box. it greatly simplifies samba setup.

Thanks for your input once I added the uyser to smbpasswd file I was able to connect without a hitch.

BUT>>>>>>>>> I just can't leave well enough alone so I downloaded the samba3 rpm's and tried installing them. Problem is I get a list ov conflicts with samba2 so Now I need to uninstall samba2 ( How the heck does that work) and install samba3 . When I installed the first samba3 package, I gat a couple of message that said samba3 depends on samba3 client and samba3 winbind, is there a hopw-to that covers this or a list that shows the load order for these packages? I thought I had seen somewhere a commandline for rpm that would allow you to install several packages with one command? was I dreaming or do you know of such a thing.

Thanks

Rick

Update

I downloaded another copy of the samba3 files and this time I used the command "yast -i *.rpm" this isnstalled all of the rpm files at the same time and no more dependancy problems. Think I am on my way now to configure samba3. I also installed the webmin program. seems to work pretty good but I still had to manually add the test user to the smbpasswd file even after I added them using the wedmin program. I will have to work on that some more.

Thanks for your help.
Rick
