I have a directory on my Ubuntu 14 box that I'd like to connect to via my Windows 10 box. I've created a new Samba user, set the new user's password, and verified that the new user has the proper permissions for the directory. When I try map to this drive in Windows Explorer, however, I get an "Access is denied" error. I'd like to use the specific linux user 'music' only - I don't want to make this directory accessible to everyone/guests. 'music' needs to have both read and write access.
I'm using the username firstname.lastname@example.org (LAN IP address is static) with the correct Samba password (verified with smbclient).
What do I need to do differently?
Here's the excerpt from my log.elwah file (elwah is the name of my Win10 box):
[2016/01/23 17:59:00.839965, 0] ../source3/smbd/uid.c:153(check_user_share_access) user music connection to Music denied due to share security descriptor.
And here is my smb.conf file:
