For the life of me I cannot figure this one out.
I have samba installed and set up on the ubuntu box and on the Win7 box I CAN SEE all the shares I created.
I created two users on ubuntu that map to the users in windows. On ubuntu they are both admins, user A & B on Windows User A is admin and user B is poweruser.
User A can see both shares and access them, but user B can see everythin, but only access the homes directory, the other directory throws an error.
I have two drives in Ubuntu and this is the smb.config file (I am new to samba):
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) wins support = no dns proxy = yes name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d security = user encrypt passwords = true passdb backend = tdbsam obey pam restrictions = yes unix password sync = yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* . pam password change = yes map to guest = bad user ; usershare max shares = 100 usershare allow guests = yes
And here is the share section:
Both user A & B can access this from windows. No problems.
[homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = no writable = yes
Both User A & B can see this share, but only user A can access it. User B get an error thrown.
[stuff] comment = Unixmen File Server path = /media/data/appinstall/ browseable = yes ;writable = no read only = yes hosts allow =
The permission for the media/data/appinstall/ is as follows:
share name: stuff Allow others to create and delete files in this folder is cheeked Guest access (for people without a user account) is checked
Owner: user A Folder Access: Create and delete files File Access: --- Group: user A Folder Access: Create and delete files File Access: --- Others Folder Access: Create and delete files File Access: ---
I am at a loss and need to get this work. Any ideas?
The goal is to have a setup like this. 3 users on window machines. Each user on the data drive will have their own personal folder where they are the ones that can only access, then another folder where 2 of the users will have read only and one user full access.
I had this setup before on windows, but after what happened I am NEVER going back to windows, so Unix here I am to stay!
I am really stuck. I am running Ubuntu 11. I could reformat again and put on version 10 if that would make life easier. I have been dealing with this since Wed. 3pm.
