Windows can't access Samba server


Hi guys,

I would like to start by thanking all those who'll participate in solving my problem and good luck. It has been eating me up for two days now.

I was running Samba Version 3.0.23c-2 and it was working perfeclty with below configuration. I decided to yum and get the latest version Version 3.0.24*. That was the starting point of all my erros and problems. Since the upgrade, windows users have been able to access my samba server. I rollback to 3.0.23c-2, but no luck. Still facing the same issues.

See logs files below.

[global]
workgroup = MYGROUP
netbios name = HELEN
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
smb ports = 139
dns proxy = No
cups options = raw

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No

[archive]
comment = Old guds
path = /mnt/archive/Shared
valid users = elly, guest
create mask = 0222


I get the following logs when a window client tries to access the server.

Partial log out

I've tried the following:

2. Disable SELinux
3. Create, restart samba deamons

Please, assist me on this.

Regards,
Elly

Can you see the share on the linux box using either smbclient or smbtree?

I too faced the same problem. It seems, if we restart the Windows machine,
then it's able to access the Samba server.

thanks for all the help guys. after restarting the machine, smb just came back to service.

I'm going through logs to check what has changed to make it work again. If i discover the problem, will post it.

Thanks again.
