I upgraded from CentOS 7.3 to 7.4. Along with it it upgraded Samba. Everything is working fine on the Mac workstations, but the Windows PC workstations (which are running Windows 7, if that matters) are being prompted for the password to access the Samba share. The dialogue box has the workstation name, backslash and the user account for the file server. I tried selecting to login with another account where I manually entered in the user account for the file server and password, but it won't accept it.
Samba version 4.6.2 Linux ourbox 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 12 22:26:13 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux smb.conf: # See smb.conf.example for a more detailed config file or # read the smb.conf manpage. # Run 'testparm' to verify the config is correct after # you modified it. [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server %v netbios name = OURBOX security = user map to guest = bad user dns proxy = no #============================ Share Definitions ============================== [OUR] comment = OUR File Server writable = yes valid users = smbuser path = /home/share create mode = 0660 directory mode = 0770 browsable = yes guest ok = no read only = no
There isn't anything in the logs I can find that shows access being attempted. No error messages. The Windows workstations are being prompted for the password and it won't accept it.
I'd be happy to provide more details or do more trouble-shooting recommendations.
