Here's a bit of background:
We have a windows server (2003) set up to manage virtually everything; our linux system (gentoo) is only a file server. Recently, a user has been unable to access a shared directory on that file server. They are presented with a login box, but no information seems to work (including admin logins). I tailed the samba logs, which are being given:
[xxxx/xx/xx time, 2] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(321)
user 'UserName' (from session setup) not permitted to access this share (ShareName)
Things I'm absolutely certain of (relevant things):
1. The user that is having this problem is a member of the appropriate groups.
2. Other members of this group can access this directory.
3. The user can access other shared directories per his permissions
4. This problem is in no way specific to which machine is used
Things I'm nearly certain of:
1. No changes have recently been made to this user's permissions in Exchange.
2. No other users are experiencing this issue.
this is the .conf, as it pertains to this share:
path = /x/ShareName/
comment = domain GroupName
writeable = yes
valid users = @DOMAIN+groupname
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
available = yes
browseable = yes
force group = DOMAIN+groupname
force create mode = 0660
force directory mode = 0770
oplocks = true
veto files = /.*/
delete veto files = true
This is relatively equivalent for all other shared folders (the format is identical, only the names are different where appropriate).
I'm stumped at this point. If anyone could tell me where to go from here, I'd really appreciate it.
EDIT: I'm really sorry, I believe I posted this in the wrong forum. Could someone please move it for me (I promise I'll be more careful from now on
