what is this error mes mean ?


Hi folks i just got RH9 a week ago, but for the last couples days i am still having problem getting windows to the the shares on the linux box, i already reinstall linux 3 times


I can see the share from linux natilus, I am having problem to get win2K to the the share, my win2k can see the linux box on the network but when i click on the linux host, i got linux is not accessable and the network path not found" i have check lot of doc and tip on how to SAMBA, but the dang thang still wouldnt work.

the only error i got is when i try to "smbclient -L localhost" on the linux box, i got session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON FAILURES


I have check the smb.conf and it look ok

[programs]
comment = share programs
path = /programs
valid users = johnny
public = no
writeable = yes
create mask = 0765


-all my 2 daemons are running
-I can access the shares from linux box from nautilus and command line from the linux box itself
-the share is there, the user is added,
-i have the linux box sharing the internet through the cable modem, and accessing winXP shares, so i know my LAN is functioning OK
-the only error i get is when i run "smbclient -L localhost"

I am thinking of get rid of windows, but dang this linux stuff is not easy

Any helps would greatly appreciate

Do you use encrypted passwords? What does "grep -i crypt /etc/samba/smb.conf" say?

(
Tip : for Samba configuration try "swat - Samba Web Administration Tool".

Use the URL : "http://localhost:901/" with a browser on the Linux box (or <IP adress of your Linux box>:901" on a Windows machine).
)

Have you got any firewall rules that may be causing a problem?

Hi all

I have a similair problem. I have just installed RHL 8. I have configured my Smb.conf file. I have restarted the services.I have created a share

On my Win2K server in the network neighborhood I see a new entry----Localhost. If the documentation is correct then I should be getting a description saying--- Samba Server.

When doubleclicking on local host I get the following error message from my W2k server. Localhost already in use

I have tried for 2 days to fix this problem. PLEASE HELP. I think I might just give it all up and go back to M$..

Thanks

Kennie :

I can reproduce your problem and I can also fix it by turning off the 'encrypt passwords' option in the "/etc/samba/smb.conf" file.

Look below :

$ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf |grep -i enc
encrypt passwords = Yes

$ smbclient -L localhost
added interface ip=10.0.0.4 bcast=10.255.255.255 nmask=255.0.0.0
Password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE


<here I remove the 'encrypt passwords = Yes' line for the smb.conf file>


$ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf |grep -i enc

<nothing shows up, because I removed that line>

$ smbclient -L localhost
added interface ip=10.0.0.4 bcast=10.255.255.255 nmask=255.0.0.0
Password:
Domain=[MYGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.7a]

Hi cropcircle

Got smbadduser to work...I also learnt how to add users. But to no avail. I am still getting the same error message from win2k.

Here is my smb.conf file...Dont laugh

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.

With KDE you can use 'Lisa' in combination with Konqueror.

"su -"
<root password>
"service lisa start"

KDE - Config tool -> Internet & network -> Lisa
KDE - Config tool -> Internet & network -> ReLisa

I believe this tool is a bit buggy in Red Hat Linux 9, but just try it.
I used it once on Red Hat 7.3.

Here are some discussions about it :
http://www.progsoc.uts.edu.au/lists/.../msg00518.html
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...002/10/2/32348

You can also try this tool :

Thanks cropcircle...

I will try it tonight and tell you about it when I get it to work or not.

A freind of mine gave me Suise 8.1. I really want to try it out, but have to discipline myself----I got to get Redhat running like my windows boxes first!!!!

I will persevere (with a little help from aliens that land in crop fields )

Thanks once again
