Which version of Samba are you using?

You say you can see the shared files from Ubuntu, but still get an error message? How do you get to see the files, and under what circumstances does the error message appear?

What (if anything) appears in the smbd log when you attempt to connect/authenticate? Any messages from PAM in the security log?

thanks for reply

i use samba 4.0.0alpha18

i go to nautilus then :
Files tab > Connect to server > windows share
it shows me the share files and when i click on them it gives the error (Failed to mount Windows share)

theres nothing in log files about authentication failure. here is my entire log file :

Code:

That is a) really old, and b) alpha-quality software. The current version is 4.0.6 (or 3.6.16 for the non-AD 3.x branch).

You should consider upgrading to the latest 4.x release, or perhaps use the 3.x version instead. If you're not going to use the AD DC functionality, 3.x might be a better choice right now.

You mean it shows you the share, but fails to connect, right? You can't actually see the files because of the authentication error?

Do you have a log file called /var/log/samba/log.smbd or possibly /var/log/samba/log.smbd.something (where something will be a host name of some kind)?

For PAM-related security messages, check /var/log/secure.

i will install 3.x version since i just going to do simple file sharing.
i have only one log file :
Code:
# ls /var/log/samba/
log.%m
i don't have /var/log/secure .

it's some kind of odd that i have alpha version of samba since im using ubuntu LTS version i think i should have newer version .

My mistake. It seems Ubuntu logs authentication-related information in /var/log/auth.log.
