samba log file
Description of problem:
Samba-swat will not allow logins after enabling xinet.d/swat and rebooting. The firewall is open for all samba programs and port 901 is also open.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : samba-swat
Arch : i686
Epoch : 1
Version : 3.6.3
Release : 78.fc17.1
Size : 12 M
Repo : installed
From repo : fedora
Summary : The Samba SMB server Web configuration program
URL : http://www.samba.org/
License : GPLv3+ and LGPLv3+
Description : The samba-swat package includes the new SWAT (Samba Web Administration
: Tool), for remotely managing Samba's smb.conf file using your favorite Web browser.
Open a web browser(I use Firefox (10.0.1) type in 127.0.0.1:901. Attempt to log in, login dialog disappears when clicking OK and after a short period of time reappears asking for the user ID and password again without showing any errors at all.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.type in 127.0.0.1:901
3.type in user IS and password in login dialog
Login dialog disappears for a couple of seconds and reappears!
Log into the web based samba administration GUI.
Please post your smb.conf file and make sure you have /etc/pam.d/samba.
I don't know if this was ever fixed in Fedora. I moved to ARCH when samba didn't work as intended, so I thought I'd report it.
I have the exact configuration in ARCH that I was going to use in Fedora and have no problems what so ever.
Sorry, guess I should have requested this bug to be closed since I don't use Fedora anymore.
So this bug can be closed.
