Can you give details on what you did in step 3 "remove share"; did you
did not restart samba. simply removed share via redhat-config-samba.
this apears to reside with the tool itself because ive since moved to
swat and the shares stop access as soon as i disable or remove them
via swat. also i noticed redhat-config-samba making changes to the
smb.conf file while in security setting that were unralated to the
settings i was changing. i had to go back with swat and remedy the
such as guest being constantly mapped to "nobody" even though i set
it to no guest account last time.
try it on a fresh fc1 machine with all updates youl find its VERY
actually i take that back - i also tryed restarting samba after the
changes to no avail - i did not monitor the changes to smb.conf so i
didnt notice whether or not it was successfully removed from the file
Mark: redhat-config-samba will restart the smb daemon every time a
change is made, so it shouldn't be necessary for the user to manually
restart the service.
moonwalker: It would be helpful if you could attach an smb.conf file
before and after using redhat-config-samba so I can try to determine
exactly what is being changed in the file. Also provide the exact
steps that you took to make the changes with the user interface.
unfortunately this is a production server slated to go online in 7
days. ive just learned to stay away from redhat-config-samba for now.
if i get some time and get it ready for active duty ahead of schedule
then ill go back and reproduce the error in detail.
the thing i noticed it changing is guest access parms mostly.
The bug with the guest account getting reset to "nobody" is a dupe of
bug #121745 and is fixed in system-config-samba-1.2.11-1.
I am not able to reproduce the problem with the share still being
accessible after it's been deleted from system-config-samba. I'm
running system-config-samba-1.2.12-1 on an FC2 box and the client is a
RHEL3 AS system. I don't have a Windows box handy to try that.
Since I'm not able to reproduce this problem, I'm going to close as
'worksforme'. Please reopen if you see the behavior on an FC2 machine.
