Windows cannot access SMB/CIFS share

  • Hi guys,

    I have been running a NAS server with shares on plain Debian and decided to move to OMV2.1.
    However I am running into a bit of difficulty in setting op the SAMBA shares...

    The share is browsable under windows, but I do not get asked for a username or password, and get greeted with "Windows cannot access..."

    Could someone give me someone tell me what could be the issue?

    I've dumped the output of the most relevant command below:

    root@openmediavault:/etc/samba# cat smb.conf

    root@openmediavault:/media/b815c7ef-3280-4f67-b063-6c4773bc5cb3# ls -l

    root@openmediavault:/media/b815c7ef-3280-4f67-b063-6c4773bc5cb3# getfacl david

    Thanks for having a look!

  • Ofcourse

    Thanks for having a look.

    root@openmediavault:/media/b815c7ef-3280-4f67-b063-6c4773bc5cb3# ls -la

  • See the single dot? That's the permission on the current folder listing. even though samba runs as privileged user (root) is still has difficulties acceding restricted folders, don't know why.
    Try this

    chmod 755 /media/uuidnumber/
    chown root:root /media/uuidnumber

    replace uuidnumber number for your folder. Then try access again.
