    Ubuntu 12.10 Samba Issue

    Hi there I am not 100% sure were to put this but my samba stopped working. When I tried to put a share directory it comes up with this issue "net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. The connection was refused. Maybe smbd is not running". Can someone give me a hand with this issue.

    You will in fact get this error is samba is not running:
    'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. The connection was refused. Maybe smbd is not running.
    Did you try starting smbd?
    Code:
    sudo service smbd start

    Thank you for getting back to me it did not work. I also tried stopping samba and starting it back and it came up with the same error.

    Go into your /etc/samba/smb.conf file and place a "#" sign in front of these 2 lines so that it looks like this:
    #interfaces = 10.3.3.2/8, eth0
    #bind interfaces only = Yes
    Then restart smbd and try to create the share again.

    If that doesn't do it stop your firewall:
    Code:
    sudo ufw disable
