Description antonio montagnani 2009-02-02 17:12:54 EST
Description of problem:
when I  open Resources/Network/Windows Network/CASA (that is my
computer) I get the windows with shared folders, when I click on any
of them I get
Mount of share failed

and in var/log/samba a message:

[2009/01/31 08:38:53,  0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1152)
 '/home/antonio/Radioamatori' does not exist or permission denied
when connecting to [Radioamatori] Error was Permission denied

My F11 is a fully updated system created by a running F10 and using
rawhide repository. (early user of F11, I think that up to now there
is no installation media available)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Resources/Network/Windows network
2.Click on a network computer
3.Click on any shared folder
Actual results:
no mount

Expected results:
it should work

Antonio, the samba release in rawhide should be 3.3.0, can you check the machine is really fully updated ?

Comment 2 antonio montagnani 2009-02-03 16:10:43 EST
rpm -qa samba
[antonio@Casa ~]$ su
[root@Casa antonio]# yum update samba
Plugin caricati:dellsysidplugin2, refresh-packagekit, upgrade-helper
Impostazione Processo di Aggiornamento
Nessun pacchetto marcato per l'aggiornamento

funny as it means that yum update doesn't find any update for samba!!

Shall I file another bug against yum???? :-)
Comment 3 antonio montagnani 2009-02-03 16:15:05 EST
and at least in koij I have not seen any updates to reported version of samba!!!

Comment 4 Simo Sorce 2009-02-03 19:01:22 EST
Ooops my bad, I thought Guenther had already built it.

Can you post smb.conf and a level 10 log that shows the problem ?

The file has been cut too much, I need to see a bit more than just the error number

Comment 9 Simo Sorce 2009-02-04 09:39:14 EST
The only error I can see in this snipped is NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD, are you sue the password is correct?
I also see an error referring to a bad path at the start of the file, but you cut the log there and I can't see what leads to that error.
Comment 10 antonio montagnani 2009-02-04 10:18:05 EST
I have not been asked for any password, no prompt appeared on my screen!!!

I will re-rerun same test tonight if you like, in order to have a complete log maybe that cutting & pasting is not my preferred job ;-)

Any other test that I could run to help?? if I am not wrong, as this box is a F10 updated to F11 by yumming, when it was a F10 but also at beginning of F11 era, I could jump to any windows shared folder (and I have not changed anything in my setup)

Tnx anyway

I don't know if it is my mistake or a bug...
Comment 15 Simo Sorce 2009-02-14 11:10:56 EST
did you close the bug because you found the problem ?
If so can you share what was it ?
Comment 16 antonio montagnani 2009-02-14 12:37:59 EST

I closed the bug as I think that I have to study  how Samba works, even it is not easy, two many available option!! At least I can connect  as user, not sure that I can work if share option is activated.

I find very strange (as user) that sharing a printer is really easy from/to Windows and from/to Fedora, but sharing a folder is not as easy.
I have to find a really updated howto with easy examples (that are the most common ones..).

Do you think that it is worth re-opening it until we can carry out more tests???

please note, that as nobody joined this bug, I thought that it was my fault, not Samba
Comment 17 Simo Sorce 2009-02-14 15:15:08 EST
Permission problems are generally always configuration problems and not samba bugs.
I am ok with keeping this closed.
