Samba shared folder "doesn't exist" under Fedora 7 x86_64


I've had a Samba server running previously on my machine. I used the KDE Control Center for setup. I attempted to change the shared directory from /home/shares to /srv/samba. After making that change, when I attempted to access the share via SMB, I got the error "The file or folder smb://maxwell/shares does not exist." even though I could get as far as smb://maxwell/ and see the samba directory. I attempted to change back to /home/shares and received the same error. I don't know what the issue is because up to that point I made no other changes. Since then, I've tried repairing it to no avail. I am now trying to share /srv/samba. Most recently, I have used system-config-samba to try to get this to work. My /etc/samba/smb.conf is:

[global]
security = share
restrict anonymous = no
domain master = no
preferred master = no
workgroup = Funk-Net
server string = Samba Sever
; netbios name = maxwell
max protocol = NT
acl compatibility = winnt
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto
; encrypt passwords = yes
; guest ok = no
; guest account = nobody

[shares]
case sensitive = no
strict locking = no
guest ok = yes
msdfs proxy = no
writeable = yes
path = /srv/samba
; browseable = yes
; browseable = yes

I've made SELinux modifications to allow Samba to be able to serve pretty much everything. Any ideas?

Have you tried to isolate whether the problem is on the server or the client by accessing the share with smbclient off the server directly.

Just run: $ smbclient \\\\maxwell\\shares

and it should get you through to a smb prompt.

What do you have in the samba logs in /var/log/samba?

I have numerous other log files, most of which contain nothing at all.

The error I gave was on the local machine through Konqueror. On a Windows XP machine on the network I get an error about the not having permission to access that resource.

I got your share definition to work on my FC7 host with one slight modification.

I however had to remove the "msdfs proxy = no" option from the shares definition.

Until I did that I was seing the same error as you.

Thank you very much for your help. It's working great now. I don't know what that tag is exactly or why the KDE Control Center would put it in. If you don't mind, what does that do?

Do a "man smb.conf" and search for dfs. The answer is there.
