Over the weekend, I upgraded my server from RedHat 7.3 to Fedora.

For the most part, everything runs. There is a major problem however.

I was running Samba 2.2.x. When I did the upgrade, I no longer had access to my home directory.

After finally finding some useful documentation, it appears that 3.x is VASTLY different from 2.x. I THINK the issue relates to LDAP, but I don't know anything about LDAP, and I haven't gotten far enough into the documentation to make heads or tails of what's really going on.





I think you'll find that the difference is in the security. Samba 2.x
used "security = share" by default, 3.x uses "security = user".




Thanks for your reply.

I solved both problems earlier today.

I use my Samba as a PDC, so I already have "security=user". The problem was with this line in the [homes] share:

"valid users = %S"

Apparently, this is not permitted in Samba 3.x. Commenting it out solved that problem.



Hmmm. Interesting. Did testparm kick the line out?


Nope.

Hmmm. Then it's still valid. Do the Windows users have a Linux account or mapped via a usermap.cfg file? They don't have an individual [username] service associated, do they? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - "Swap memory error: You lose your mind" - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
