Having an issue with an Ubuntu 14.04 server running a Samba share.
This server was configured by another person, and has been running for a few years now. I was transferring files from a hard drive yesterday, but when I went to check to see if they had finished transferring, I was disconnected from the share. I decided to just close the folder, and reopen it, but it isn't visible at all.
Normally under Network (both Windows and Linux), the share appears under Windows Network, then Guest. However, Guest is no longer visible.
I did restart the server, but this did not fix the problem.
I did restart the services:
service smbd restart service nmbd restart
This did not fix the problem.
I did check
/var/log/samba/log.nmbd, and got this from it:
[2016/04/19 06:26:07.759121, 0] ../source3/nmbd/nmbd_browsesync.c:354(find_domain_master_name_query_fail) find_domain_master_name_query_fail: Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name GUEST<1b> for the workgroup TCR-GUEST. Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup.
I've yet to find a threat that addresses this problem.
One other thing to note; the server has no GUI, only a command line interface.
I forgot to mention, when I restart, or stop and start
smbd, I get this:
stop: Unknown instance: smbd start/running, process 3781
I also get this from
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated WARNING: Ignoring invalid value 'share' for parameter 'security' Error loading services.
Here is the
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) wins support = yes dns proxy = no log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d ####### Authentication ####### server role = standalone server 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 security = share map to guest = Bad User
I appreciate any answers that you would have.
