Samba is looking for it because Windows is asking it to look for it!

Can you post your smb.conf, so we can see how you've configured the shares? 
(though please remove any comments, to save bandwidth).

Are you trying to access them on the Unix side, and being confused when 
changes don't show on the Windows side?  I think the solution there is to 
have your Unix side people access the file system through Samba - do an 
smbmount (or is it just mount with special options?  I don't use it this 
way, and so can never remember).  I have experienced problems with just 
that - working with files on the Linux server directly, and not having 
changes show through to the windows clients. Sometimes it just took time, 
others I had to restart Samba itself.

Or is it that these are pre-existing files and folders, and they are 
showing some and not showing others?  You could cut 'n paste directory 
listings, so we can see the permissions settings on the actual files & 
folders themselves.

2.2.5 on SOL 8 - deleted folder reappears

I'm using Samba 2.2.5 on Solairis 8. I have a problem with W2k and WXP 
clients.

I have a folder, in a share, that is protected against deletion by a 
non-root user. I tested this in the unix environment
to ensure the permissions were setup correctly. If an NT4/W9x client 
attempts to delete this folder, an access denied
message is displayed. However, if a W2k or Wxp client attempts to delete 
it (using Win Explorer), windows appears
to delete the folder, but it really isn't deleted because if I check the 
unix environment, the folder is still there. Now...
if I refresh Win Explorer, the folder still appears deleted. But...if I 
close Win Explorer and open a new Explorer the folder
reappears.....(hhmm).

Can anyone shed some light on what might be causing this?

thanks
Dennis

RE: Desktop.ini and samba - Please comment

Here, you go.  

Open Windows Explorer.  On the Tools menu, select Folder Options.  On
the View tab, scroll down to Hidden files and Folders.  There should be
two options:  

Do not show hidden file and folders
Show hidden files and folders  

If you have the first option selected, you will not see any files or
folders that begin with a . (period)  No dot files or dot folders.
Change the option back to Show hidden files and folders and these will
be seen.

Unmountable Linux Samba mounts

Some of you might be familiar with the strange way that Linux will
sometimes disallow umount-ing or listing directory contents of a mounted
smb share, returning the error text, "Input/output error."  I believe
this error happens when a smb share is mounted, then that remote share
is removed.  This is a seriously annoying problem, because restarting
Samba does not solve the problem, nor does changing runlevels.  I am
guessing that it may be a kernel-level problem, so I am looking for more
information and possibly some confirmation on this.  I have tried
changing the runlevel to [S]ingle level user, which is running pretty
much nothing save kernel processes and a simple shell. At this level, a
'mount' command still shows the shares to be mounted, and also at this
level it is still impossible to umount them.  The only solution that I
have found so far is rebooting, which I think is an unacceptable way to
handle such a problem.

On a possibly related side note, during the time that I could not remove
the unmountable mounted smb shares, the dhcpd daemon that was running on
the box also seemed to start malfunctioning.  On the Linux box
(Mandrake), everything appeared to be fine; that is, I was able to
restart the dhcpd daemon without any errors.  But none of the other
networked machines which normally get served addresses from it were
getting addresses.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to sniff packets, so I
don't know what kind of communication (or lack thereof) was occurring,
but it did seem like network traffic was being blocked in the Linux box
from something.  It was a frustrating exercise trying to figure out why
my other boxes were not getting addresses.  Strangely enough, after I
rebooted the Mandrake box, everything worked as normal again, and the
other boxes got their IP addresses fine.

Like I said, I don't know for sure if the dhcpd thing was related to the

Win98 can't login to NT

Hi there,

I have finally talked a corporation into allowing me to introduce Unix.  I
have used samba before, but I now have a problem.

Some (and only some) of the windows 98 clients can no longer log into the NT
domain controller.  They get the same message as if the passwd/username was
wrong.

Here is a snip from my config file:

os level=00
password server=nt_box
domain master=no
local master=no

Now, I would assume that the setup above would do everything to ensure that
the clients look toward the NT box no matter what, because the 00 would
ensure that the samba server would never become the browser master.

If I set the option 'domain logons=no', would this help any?

Please help.  As soon as I kill SMBD, the clients then again authenticate to
nt.

Steve Bertrand

tough problem joining test domain

I've been working on this all night without success...

I'm setting up a HEAD  (from today) test domain and want to join XP
machines to it.
I've applied the signorseal patch to the client
I've set use spnego = no in the smb.conf

I'm using ldapsam talking to a remote machine.
smbldap tools all work to change passwords add/del users etc.
i've set the ldap admin password via smbpasswd -w

I've set the SID to be the same as that in my non-test domain (since I
want to be able to move user profiles from test to the production
domain).  My test domain controller is acting sort of like a BDC for the
production PDC except it is the domain master for a different domain.
rpcclient $> lsaquery
domain LAUELAB_TEST has sid S-1-5-21-1995982474-3671514283-3045899775
rpcclient $> lsaquery
domain LAUELAB has sid S-1-5-21-1995982474-3671514283-3045899775

but I can't join the test XP machine to the test domain.  here is that
bit of the log

Re: Unmountable Linux Samba mounts

I get the same problem when I mount smb shares and
then disconnect my notebook from network without
unmounting the share, it seems like samba needs the
share to be available to unmount it, however for me, I
use
 umount -l /your/mountpoint
this will free up the mountpoint and will try to fully
umount in the backgroud (I guess). Not a very
intelligent solution though because I still see
smbmount in the process list, it will atleast free up
the mount point.
