I am a relatively new Linux admin and have set up a file sharing network across our computers at home. I am in the process of moving all things hosted to a box running Centos 7 from a Win10 box which will turn back into a normal workstation. I still want to allow Win10 to put files to the Centos 7 server. So, hello Samba 4.8.3.
As I'm learning Samba and how it works, I've been able to successfully setup and access an anonymous share provided it's on the root drive; however, the instant I attempt to move the directory location from the /samba/anonymous folder to a different drive, I cannot access it from the Windows box.
Here is what my smb.conf file looks like:
============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[anonymous] comment = Anonymous File Server Share path = /samba/anonymous browsable = yes writeable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no force user = wang [Movies] comment = Movies path = /run/media/wang/Mobile_Wang/Movies browsable =yes writable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no force user = wang [Shows] comment = Shows path = /run/media/wang/Big_Wang/Shows browsable = yes writable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no force user = wang
I verified the directories and they are good if I access them locally. I also am running a Plex Media server and it can see all the directories. Also, just to be redundant, the Anonymous share is accessible.
I suspect my issue is somewhere in how the drives are mounted, but being a newbie to Linux, I'm a little lost.
Any guidance is appreciated.
