I am trying to configure samba with centos7 to be accessed from windows 10 clients.

log level = 1 i used a previously working smb.conf from the same server after reinstalling centos.

log level = 10 you can actually skip reading this, its level 10 details.

start

i am very new to configuring a linux server, i am familiar with basic linux command ls chmod chown ...,

i followed this article to configure a secure share on wlan network and then tested it with a colleague, everything was working ok except that he did not have execution permission on the share, the path is /home/CompanyFiles/All

so i executed cd /home/

then chmod -R 777 /

then i successfully changed the permissions of the entire centos files and broke the centos installation.

after some googling i decided that reinstalling centos is better than trying to recover from the chmod command and it was feasible since i only installed samba on it, so i copied smb.conf to another machine, reinstalled centos and reinstalled samba, and then i used the old smb.conf.

end

smb.conf:

[global]
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        security = user
        map to guest = Bad User
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        load printers = yes
        cups options = raw
        log level = 4
        #ntlm auth = yes
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        netbios name = adServer

[homes]
        comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S, %D%w%S
        browsable = No
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes
[CompanyFiles]
        path = /home/CompanyFiles
        guest ok = yes
        browsable = no
        writable = yes

[All]
        comment = Company Access
        path = /home/CompanyFiles/All
        guest ok = no
        browsable = yes
        writable = yes
        #access based share enum = yes

the permission of the folders are:

drwxrwx--x. 3 everyad adusers 17 Feb 26 09:32 CompanyFiles

drwxrwx--x. 2 everyad adusers 42 Feb 26 11:43 All

where all users are members of the group adusers.

also the users trying to access are created on smb using smbpasswd -a username

BUT i get the following error when trying to access the server from windows 10

you do not have permission to access server ...

please not that i removed samba and reinstalled it with no success.

when making the log level 4 i receive status[NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED], but with lower level i don't get an error.

searching online always led to selinux stuff, firewall or permissions:

selinux is permissive

firewalld is disabled

and still getting the same issue

I FINALLY managed to solve this problem.

first of all i removed the existing connections from windows 10 using net use * /delete from the command line since the credentials where saved and i changed them on the server

also for some reason i had to specify smbpasswd in /etc/samba/smb.conf: passdb backend = smbpasswd in the [global] section

also the /home permission where wrong and all my shares are in /home so i reset the permission to 755: chmod -R 755 /home

then i reset all the shares permission and group access based on my needs.

This just happened to me as well, with the latest Samba on Fedora. I was mysteriously getting 'access denied' responses when trying to create/write/delete files and folders in sub-directories of my Samba share from Windows. Weirdly, changing files in the root folder worked fine.

I changed the setting from passdb backend = tdbsam to passdb backend = smbpasswd, ran smbpasswd -a myuser to re-add my user and password, and restarted the smb service. This fixed the problem for me.

We had the [NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED] error where users could access their HOME shares but not any other shares.

/var/log/samba/__ffff_172.16.0.35.log:

[2019/03/05 11:26:53.914706, 1] smbd/service.c:678(make_connection_snum) create_connection_server_info failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

This was caused by Domain Controllers being restarted whilst SAMBA and WINBIND servers were running. Simply restarting services winbind & smb resolved the issue.

A light fix; but worth a mention

Do not forget to do net use * /delete as windows seems to keep some invalid data in its cache. This makes my smbd suddently accepting my password.
