Tip : if you’ve configured a samba server and you know you configuration should work, but you can’t connect from a Windows server, try to run smbclient from a linux server.
You will have more information to work with.
Try to run :
# smbclient –L myhost1 –U myusername Domain=[ myhost1] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.6-86.el6] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- sqldump Disk dumps sql IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba Server Version 3.5.6-86.el6) Domain=[ myhost1] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.6-86.el6] Server Comment --------- ------- Workgroup Master --------- -------
For instance the share sqldump should be ok to connect with but when I try to connect with smbclient, I get the following error:
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
Try to disable SELinux, even temporarly with :
echo 0 > /selinux/enforce
And try again, it should work.
