  1. [ubuntu] Re: Can't Connect to Shared Folder in Files

    Samba maintains it's own database of users and passwords used for samba purposes.

    If you created the share on the server as userxyz and you want to connect to that share as that server user you...
  2. Re: Need help to use Local Network Share with Ubuntu 18.04

    I really dislike overly convoluted samba HowTo's especially ones that in a few cases are factually incorrect.

    It's going to take me a bit to try to reproduce this issue in it's entirety but what I...

    You stated that you are using Ubuntu Server but you reference Local Network Share which is Ubuntu desktop.

    Please post the output of the following commands:

    [kubuntu] Re: autofs mounting usb as root only

    I admit I'm getting confused by all this.

    [1] I don't know why autofs is getting referenced in all this.

    The way an external usb storage drive automatically mounts is in fact an auto-mounting...

    [server] Re: noauto ignored in fstab in 20.04?

    But ..... that's not how fstab is implemented. It is read from left to right so if "defaults" is used first and that means "auto" it is replaced with "noauto" ( and any other subsequent settings ) as...

    [kubuntu] Re: autofs mounting usb as root only

    Not as long at it mounts to /media/me/UUID. Even if the permissions on /UUID were 777 only "me" will gain access to it. That is by design.

    Run:

    getfacl /media/$USER
    You should get something...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't access samba folder

    I don't understand the question.

    Please provide the output of the following command so the folks here can see how you are set up:

    testparm -s

    Also, you might want to provide a link to the...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    My mistake. I thought this ...

    ... meant that for any random usb storage device you attach to your system you want to see a specific set of permissions.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    Try the following experiment: Eveything you do here can be unmounted and un-done so it's not permamant.

    Install bindfs:

    sudo apt install bindfs

    Create a mount point in say your home...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: shared directory between 2 users with Samba/cifs

    I think the issue for some users is a conceptual one.

    Samba uses a Client-Server model to do its thing.

    A server never ever exposes the internal permissions of it's assets to the client. And...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    More of an FYI but there was no need to remove "other" from every directory and file in $HOME. All you needed to do is issue a chmod 0770 on $HOME.

    The file system is hierarchical so block it...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: shared directory between 2 users with Samba/cifs

    Just so I understand: This is how your share was created originally:

    And you are connecting to the share with this mount declaration on the client - can't seem to get rid of that space between...

  16. Re: Suggestions: lightweight distros with native SMBv1?

  17. Re: Suggestions: lightweight distros with native SMBv1?

    Packing up for the day but I thought I'd install and test things out to see what's what.

    I installed x-plore on android.

    Then I went to a Ubuntu20 server ( vubsrv2004 ) adding the same 2 lines...
  18. Re: Suggestions: lightweight distros with native SMBv1?

    SMB1 is not removed from the version of samba in Ubuntu20. It is disabled.

    You can enable it with what you already did: server min protocol = NT1

    The other thing that has changed over time is...
  19. Re: Struggling to automounting a network drive

    Spaces in the name of things in fstab need to be replaced with the following characters:

    That is a zero4zero

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Samba Help - worked fine and then went belly up

    smbstatus will only show something if someone accesses the server and it's share.
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Samba Help - worked fine and then went belly up

    THe easiest way out of this is to edit your share definition to make all network connections - at least to this share - as peeweejd:


    Then restart smbd:

    sudo service smbd restart

    Right now...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Samba Help - worked fine and then went belly up

    The local server user "nobody" has to have write access to sharehda and at least execute permissions on media and hda so what are the permissions on the tree:

    ls -al /media/hda
  23. Re: CIFS or SMB issues after upgrading 16.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS

    Something you might want to verify:

    Do you get something like this:

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    Yep, I'm right there with you. Especially in this case since had the OP run testparm on his smb.conf he would have received an unusually long warning:
