Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In my enviroment I have CentOS 5 installed with CUPS and SAMBA. I am unable to browse any SAMBA shares from any machine.

From Windows 8 and Windows Server 2008, I have tried the commands below

net view \\veculx1

net view \\172.19.50.30

However I receive the same error on both commands:

System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

From another CentOS server I tried running SMBCLEINT -L \\172.19.50.30

Error connecting to 172.19.50.30 (No route to host) Connection to 172.19.50.30 failed (Error NT_STATUS_HOST_UNREACHABLE)

Pinging the server resolves and replies. I can also telnet and SSH into the server without issue.

Running testparm smb.conf shows no errors in my setup.

Below is the contents of smb.conf

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba,
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#
#---------------
# SELINUX NOTES:
#
# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please run:
# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
#
# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:
# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
#
# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it as
# "samba-share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.
# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already have
# been marked with othe SELinux labels.
#
# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has
#
# Set labels only on directories you created!
# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path
#
# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of the
# following (read-only/read-write):
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
# or
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
#
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context
# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts

#   behalf of a non WINS capable client, for this to work there must be

#
# The following options can be uncommented if the filesystem supports
# Extended Attributes and they are enabled (usually by the mount option
# user_xattr). Thess options will let the admin store the DOS attributes
# in an EA and make samba not mess with the permission bits.

I've run through the basic troubleshooting guide here to no avail https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/diagnosis.html

My last attempt was to try to copy a working smb.conf file from another SAMBA server in the environment and restart SMB services. No dice and same result.

Any tips or ideas from here on how to determine why I cannot browse the SAMBA shares configured on this server?

There are two things that can prevent Samba to work well on CentOS: the firewall and SELinux. Check the official Centos wiki for Samba for a more accurate guide.

This wiki solved my problem, thank you! I had an incorrect entry in iptables and it was not committing the changes. Once I corrected the entry everything worked. Many thanks! –  Jake A Sep 26 '13 at 14:41
