    Angry Upgraded to 8.04LTS, lost samba shares

    Hi guys,
    I upgraded from 6.06LTS to 8.04LTS today - when prompted, I chose to keep the existing smb.conf file.

    I have a number of shares set up on the ubuntu machine, as follows

    \media - public access
    \shared - public access
    \web - private (access control by user + pass)
    \home - private (access control by user + pass)

    With 6.06, the user name and password were the same for ubuntu as the windows client machines, meaning username and password were passed my MS machine to ubuntu.

    Now I've installed 8.04 i am unable to access \web or \home from my windows machine. An error message saying "access is denied", and "incorrect username / password".

    Does anybody have any idea why upgrading would cause this problem, and how I can correct it?

    I wonder if the smbpasswd file got replaced...
    Try adding your user/password back in...
    OR... they haven't been added to the system users.

    It is possible, if it didn't ask about that file specifically then it's more likely than possible

    You could try reconfiguring samba?
