I mounted a new drive on
/New_drive my CentOS 5.7 box running Samba (3.0.33-3.29) and configured in fstab as follows:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1 LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0 **/dev/VolGroup02/LogVol00 /New_drive ext3 defaults 1 1**
I have two folders already shared and accessed via samba.
I have user smbuser having full access to these folder from windows machines. The smb.conf file has following configuration:
#======================= Global Settings ===================================== [global] workgroup = lab server string = Samba-server1 coding system= euc client code page=932 encrypt passwords=yes log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 security = user passdb backend = tdbsam #============================ Share Definitions ============================== # Samba Files [share-lab] comment = Samba-files create mode=0777 directory mode=0777 path =/home/sambafiles writable = yes valid users = smbuser #Samba backup Files [Samba-Backup] comment = Backup create mode=0777 directory mode=0777 path =/home/sambabackup writable = yes valid users = smbuser
So, set the owner and of
/New_drive as smbuser and give public acess to the folder.
and added New lines to the smb.conf
#New Drive [New-drive] comment = New-drive create mode=0777 directory mode=0777 path =/New_drive/sambafiles writable = yes valid users = smbuser
But, the New-drive is seen from the windows machine and is not acessible. The log file recorded the error as
smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1013) '/New_drive/sambafiles' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [Ohmi-New] Error was Permission denied
Can anyone suggest me the way to solve this problem?
