you may also try this : check the name of the service: service --status-all restart the service sudo service samba restart

The problem described here may not be related to DNS at all. You have to know that Windows can resolve the Windows hostname to its IP via other mechanisms than standard DNS : NetBIOS lookup, WINS, ... As you said you have Samba installed on your Ubuntu, this is probably what's happening. On all of your Windows machine, it is possible, out-of-the-box, to ...

Connect and mount the drive to the Ubuntu computer. The format of the drive doesn't seem to matter. DO NOT right-click on the drive and go into the sharing options via the drive’s properties. This will not work. Make sure you have Samba installed. (You can find it in the Ubuntu Software Centre titled “SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix”) ...

One way would be to set the umask value to 0022 for jay. What is "umask" and how does it work? You can also set the umask in Samba's configuration. See How to force group ownership on samba share? for an example. It does indeed stand for setgid. In a setgid folder, files and folders created inherit the group ownership, and folders inherit the ...

If you click that, you will be able to access the files on the NAS. Media Tomb - or any media player - will probably not allow you to play songs on the network ...

You can test if you have it running by typing smbstatus, if it shows any information about connected or not connected clients then it is working, if you get an error, it is not running or installed. Please make sure you also have installed the libpam-smbpass package. It is used to sync system users with the samba database for cases like letting users connect ...

SAMBA/UMASK Running Ubuntu 14.04, samba Version 4.1.6-Ubuntu. I was previously running Fedora 16/samba3 and everything was OK. With Ubuntu/samba4, I could not get Samba to set group write bit on directories. smb.conf parameters (for testing) included: create mask = 700 # The file AND mask force create mode = 775 # The file OR mask ...

I would fiddle with idea of "Creator Owner" vs "other users" permissions and instead of files permissions in some folder go for Creator Owned folders/dirs and perhaps create different "exchange" files some readable, some writable. This depends on what you actually want to achieve. SElinux may help too, but it seems that combination of SElinux and Samba ...
