    Samba – N/W name cannot be found

    Locked

    by chandra.sornam ·

    I have axhausted the search on the net to find a resolution on this.
    I have setup two users in a Linux RedHat8.0 server. One user has a NT login id which allows me to connect/map to the share that I created in the Linux box.
    The other hasn’t got a NT login id and I can’t connect/map to this share. I have tried by creating smbpasswd as suggested but get the same error “network name cannot be found”. I can see both shares on the network neighbourhood.

    Thanks

      I am going to assume you have set SECURITY as SERVER or DOMAIN in your Samba configuration. In this mode, Samba sends all access requests to the NT/2000 domain controller for authenication, and therefore you must have an NT account to access any Samba shares. Note that you also need a valid Linux account with the same username as the NT account in order to access the Samba shares.

      You can also use a “usermap” to map the linux userid to the Windows userid if you have a Windows PDC. Otherwise, try changing security = share in smb.conf. If you’re using a Windows PDC and already have smb.conf configured for it, the only other thing I can think of is to make sure the second user has both a linux user account created and a samba user account (as mentioned before). You can also check to make sure [Homes] is defined in the smb.conf for all users…
