How to grant full rights in smb.conf for subnet?

I have following smb.conf: http://pastebin.com/gCchZQvC Situation is that when I’m mapping my shares I need to login using my credentials to have ability to create directories and files. When I’m using applications ment to use the share as a write folder I land with write permission denied error. Is there any way to setup smb, so each pc from subnet 192.168.0.0/24 have anonymous read/write access without needing to authenticate? I think that’s the issue why […]

Samba share not usable by PHP-FPM?

I have a PHP-FPM and nginx setup that has been working perfectly on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04. The webserver’s files are served from a directory called /www, which is set as the root of the server. Initially, /www was mounted as a VMware shared folder (because the Ubuntu Desktop is running as a guest os). However, due to performance issues with shared folders (seeing a 2 second delay!), I am testing out samba shares. I have […]

disable samba vfs recycle object for particular share

I’m using the samba recycle plugin and have the following in my [global] section recycle:exclude = *.~lock* recycle:repository = .recycled recycle:versions = yes recycle:keeptree = yes vfs objects = recycle I would like to disable this feature for a particular share. I’ve tried putting vfs objects = within the share definition, but this has no effect. I’ve also tried putting recycle:exclude = * inside the share definition, but this didn’t work either. And finally I […]

How do I connect my FreeNAS File Server to my Mac OS X Directory Server?

I am trying to connect my File Server (FreeNAS 8.0.1 / 8.2-RELEASE-p7) with my Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Directory Server’s Open Directory… I know that Mac OS X provides an LDAP service via which other servers can authenticate against, but I am having great difficulty getting FreeNAS to authenticate against the Mac OS X Open Directory. How do I connect my FreeNAS File Server to my Mac OS X Directory Server? Asked by Josh […]

Samba share for user groups with Ubuntu. A user can’t access files created by other users

I have a folder mounted by using NFS on the server. That folder has subdirectories, and I want to share specific folders to specific user groups by using SAMBA. It doesn’t work as expected, because every user can create files, but then they can only access their own files, and not the files from others. The NFS mount on the Samba server: 172.16.54.56:/export/proyectos on /proyectos type nfs (rw,noatime,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,acregmin=10,acl,nfsvers=3,addr=172.16.54.56) There’s only one folder right now: drwsrws—+ […]

How to setup Samba4 to enable NTFS encryption?

I’m currently giving the sernet.de samba4 (rc1) appliance a shot (running inside vmware player on Windows 7). Providing a share is no problem, but the client still can’t choose to encrypt files. What settings do need to be changed in the simplest case? I’m not interested in using AD at the moment, unless necessary. Asked by Tobias Kienzler I’m reasonably certain that Samba4 does not support hosting the Encrypting File System. None of the changelogs […]

How to set maximum file size for a samba share?

Is there any way to limit the maximum file size of files that users are allowed to upload to a samba (linux) share? I could not find anything in the documentation, but it seems like the kind of thing that should exist. Asked by Matt No, such a thing does not exist. You can however set file-size limits with web servers (definitely NGINX, likely Apache, probably others) so using those to manage an upload/download site […]

How efficient is a file move on the same fileshare?

From a windows208r2 client connected to a SMB/CIFS share, I move a file from one directory to another directory on the same network share. Does windows send a “move” command to the share, or does windows copy the bytes locally, write them to the new location on the same share in the new location, and then delete the original file? One would be much more efficient than the other, just don’t know how “smart” the […]

Samba not forcing permissions (copy/move)

I’ve forced 1775 permissions on directories with force directory mode = 1775. It works when I create a new directory however it’s not working when I copy/move files. Is there any other option for this? Regards Asked by HTF The force directory mode directive only influences the creation of the directory — it doesn’t have any affect if the client then sets the mode on an existing directory. You’ll probably find that the copy process […]

Samba capabilities & functionality

The company that I work for wishes to replace its windows servers with new linux servers but wants to keep Windows on employee desktops. The requirements are: The employee desktops should be able to authenticate with a central linux server. The employee desktops should have access to shared folders on a central linux server. Software applications should be able to use Active Directory. My first thought was to use samba, but can samba meet the […]
