Cool Samba access denied


Hi i have installed Samba on Centos 6.4 and having share problems.
I can see all the shares but cant access the media share.
I get the error access denied. My smb.conf looks like this:

[business]
comment = Business
path = /home/business
read only = no
browseable = yes
valid users = bellj

[media]
comment = media files
path = /media/server
writable = no
browseable = yes
public = yes
guest ok = yes
; valid users = bellj

I can access the business share but not the media share.
Can anyone give me some pointers on this one?

Can you check what are the original permissions and ownership on /media/server? Perhaps you have read access on /home/business but not on /media/server.
Code:
~$ ls -ld /media/server

Have you checked your smb.conf is ok?

Code:
testparm -s

It may be your selinux problem
if your selinux enable then u have to add selinux context to access -
just follow this commands
#chcon -t samba_share_t /media/server
and confirm with:-
#ls -Z /media

and "writable = yes" instead of "writable = no" in your smb.conf file..

Thumbs up

Thanks everyone. I looks like Selinux was the problem.
I thought if is ran "service iptables stop", it could not be involved.
It is all working now.
Thanks again
