Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed the ubuntu 12.04 server. For access to files I use samba 3.6.3. I set up in samba of the user. I assigned to folders all rights for it, I set the password. I rebooted the server.

When I open ubuntu server through Windows, I see all shared folders. I try to enter in folder, write login and the password - a failure:"

Windows can't access...

Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose."

I open sabma, and share any additional folder for this user in samba, after that try to enter - without problems. If I try the same in Nautilus, I have access from Windows to share folders as well. After that, in other folders for this user too problems aren't present. I reboot the server about ubuntu and the computer with Windows again the same problem. In what there can be a problem? What to look?

I tried to use Nautilus, but after reboot all shared folders do not share
