    Re: password


    Here are the steps I use to set up Samba.

    On Red Hat I used the RPM's

    Gather network details:
    Domain = milkyway
    Samba Server host name = sun
    FQDN = sun.milkyway.com
    windows PC host name = earth
    FQDN = earth.milkyway.com

    In the Samba conf I set the following:
    workgroup = milkyway
    server string = sun
    encrypt passwords = yes

    *** There were more set, these are the three I changed ***

    I made sure my homes section was the way I wanted it:
    [homes]
    comment = Home Directories
    browsable = no
    writable = yes
    valid user = %S
    create mode = 0644
    directory mode = 0775

    Now I go in and make sure of the following:
    Windows PC user is 'brubble'
    password is thebrains

    Add the users to the Samba box:
    # useradd brubble
    # passwd brubble
    ***Prompts for password, enter a password, might consider same password as windows PC.
    # smbpasswd -a brubble
    ***Prompts for a Samba password USE THE SAME ONE as the windows PC! In this case it is thebrains

    Wait one minute or restart Samba to read the config file.

    brubble can now browse his home directory on the Samba server.

    The key here is that the Windows user was prompted for a login on the Windows PC. His credentials were then passed from the Windows PC to the Samba server when he went to browse his shares.

    I also have a Samba server that is part of Windows NT domain and it works great. I had to configure it a bit differently and issue a command so it would 'join' the domain. I connected to the Samba server from an employees PC who wasn't a Samba user. Samba prompted me for a username and password. I entered in valid credentials and it let me in to the shares.

    Hope this may be of some help to somebody.

    Hi,
    I have gone through Article on SAMBA setting in Administration section and tried to setup SAMBA on my home network. Some how I am not able to do so.

    FOLLOWING ARE SETTINGS ON REDHAT LINUX 8.0 SERVER.
    ********************************
    Follwoing is my SAMBA file.
    [global]

    workgroup = SAIMEDIA

    server string = "Primary file server, 40GB"
    hosts allow = 192.168.0. 127.
    encrypt passwords = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

    #============================ Share Definitions ==============================
    [homes]
    comment = Home Directories
    ; path = /home/anant
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    ; valid users = %S
    create mode = 0664
    directory mode = 0775
    [temp]
    comment = Temporary file space
    path = /temp
    browseable = yes
    read only = no
    public = yes

    ALL rest are commented.
    *******************************************************
    Follwoing is my Network card setting
    There are two Network cards. eth0 and eth1

    etho :
    Static IP address
    IP : 192.168.0.102
    Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0

    eth1 :
    Static IP address
    IP : 192.168.1.8
    Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
    Deafault Gateway : 192.168.1.1

    < eth1 is connected to outside ISP >
    both Network cards are activated.

    Hosts
    IP Name
    192.168.0.102 Shintre

    DNS
    Primary DNS 202..9.136.6
    Secondary DNS 202.9.128.7
    Tertiary DNS 202.9.128.6

    Domain Name : SAIMEDIA

    *******************************************
    I restarted SAMBA again with follwoing set of commands on server.
    [root@Shintre root]# killall smbd
    [root@Shintre root]# killall nmbd
    [root@Shintre root]# cd /etc/init.d
    [root@Shintre init.d]# ./smb start
    [root@Shintre init.d]# cd /root
    [root@Shintre root]# testparm
    [root@Shintre root]# /usr/bin/smbclient //Shintre/temp

    by getting message Anonymous login successful
    Domain[SAIMEDA] OS=[UNIX] server=[Samba 2.2.5]

    I have created user "Anuradha" with Password "anuradha" by command
    [root@Shintre root]# smbpass -u Anuradha
    [root@Shintre root]# New SMB Password - anuradha
    [root@Shintre root]# Retype new SMB Password - anuradha
    [root@Shintre root]# Password changed for user Anurahda

    I get follwoing error message.

    NO domain server was available to validate your passowrd. You must not be able to gain access to some network resources.

    After going thorugh above data, By this time you
