I can't get access from the lan to a shared folder which is located on a second hard drive on an Ubuntu server.
I have installed Ubuntu server 15.04, Ubuntu is freshly installed on first hard drive sda, and second hard drive is sdb which I have formatted with ext4 and I have mounted and set it to automount everytime I reboot computer.
I have read numerous forums and for days I've been looking for a solution to share a folder or to share a whole drive so anyone can access it from lan without permissions, no luck.
I followed this solution http://www.liberiangeek.net/2014/07/ubuntu-tips-create-samba-file-server-ubuntu-14-04/
Which works when I share folder from Hdd where is Ubuntu installed, but when I do the same steps and change a path to another folder which is located in my second hard drive "/mnt/backup/share" I cant get access to it. I created user and specific group of users with full permissions to specific folder, and when I try to get access to from local network (pc with win7, win 8 and winxp) to access it on a prompt with username and password which I type in; I got also denied. What am I missing?
