Hello all. I have seem to have some Samba Issues.
I have a Ubuntu server running Samba and NFS for a few months now. NFS has been working perfectly through out but Samba doesnt want to play. I had been using Samba 3.6.3 as from install (Select the tasks), after time the server got slower and slower to a point it took 45 mins to get a 10mb file from the server to a win7 Machine. My Linux Laptop was downloading the same file in under 30 seconds.
In my eyes that has ruled out any hardware issues and the problem was pointing towards Samba. I had a look around on the servers config files etc i found no change and backed them up. After testing more and more i thought about updating to a later version of Samba. So i used
to remove samba. then i usedCode:sudo apt-get purge samba -y
I then placed my 3 shares in the config file restarted samba and tried accessing the shares in a XP vm. When I typed in the IP address in the address bar the login box showed up so much faster than the older version of samba ever did. Impressed with the speed of it i then typed my login credentials, Didnt login. So then i went on to the server and re set the smbpasswd for that user. tried to login again, no joy. 4 & a half hours of checking conf files, checking passwords, doing Google searches, drinking coffee etc etc and still no joy.Code:sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get samba4 -y
Now i have come to the stage where i am completely stumped. .
Has anyone got any suggestions?
