Samba Share Networkmounting as X,Y,Z works, \\Share\mount not

Q: Samba Share Networkmounting as X,Y,Z works, \\Share\mount not

Dear admins, power users etc.
The last 36h hours i spend googling my problem but couldn't get any help to solve this issue. I have multiple Windows 7 machines (32bit and 64 bit) at home.

One machine shows my samba share in the network environment and i can access it via double click perfectly.
Another machine doesn't show my samba share in the network environment. However I can access it via \\Share\mount or via \\ip\mount (after accessing the mount it shows up in the network environment, not sure what causes the problem of not showing it in the network environment initally)
The "headache-giving" machine that i refer to in the introduction doesn't show the share in the network environment nor allowing me to access the \\Share\mount or \\ip\mount but only connecting to the samba share via mounting it as Networkdrive X,Y,Z...
As one can imagine googling this problem is not the easiest task and gives you a lot of false positive results. Trying to access my Share via \\Share\mount or \\ip\mount gives me the following error message:

(i apologize for it being german, however I hope that the smart ones will understand it anyways! )

As 2/3 or the windows machines can access the samba share, samba smb.conf problems can be excluded. So I strongly assume it is a Windows problem. I am running MCAfee Virusscan Enterprise. Windows Firewall is disabled and the machine is also in the same "WORKGROUP" as the samba share.

I really hope anyone of you have an idea that could help me solve the problem or point me towards the right direction! Thanks a lot in advance!

Preferred Solution: Samba Share Networkmounting as X,Y,Z works, \\Share\mount not

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm unable to connect to a samba share on a FreeBSD (via FreeNAS) box when using the machine name.

The message it gives me is "The account is not authorized to log in from this station".

The share is in anonymous mode; there's on restrictions.

If I try to connect to the same share via it's IP, things work.

Connecting via name worked previously on this same machine from XP and after I first installed Win7.

I can also connect to it via a Popcorn Hour machine.

First of all, there is no need to create multiple threads for the same problem.

& as allready said in your other thread, if from the windows machine you are trying to access localhost, you are accessing THE WINDOWS MACHINE, not the Linux machine.

localhost refers to the machine you are working on, not the machine you are connecting to.

I know this is an old story, a problem with many different solutions on line. I've tried 'em all and none have worked for me yet. I'm hoping someone can give another suggestion.

I have an old Red Hat Linux box that I use, amongst other things, to run Samba. Vista and Win XP PCs can access the p/w-protected Samba shares but a new Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC cannot. All are on a workgroup-only LAN.

I can see the Linux box's icon and shared directories in 'Network' from the Win 7 machine but when I try to access the Samba shares it says "\\LX\roy is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource." etc. But the XP and Vista boxes still have full access.

These are the steps I've taken, based on suggestions found in threads here and elsewhere on the Web:

1. Start > RUN > control userpasswords2 > Advanced > Manage Passwords to ensure that \\LX\roy password is set correctly and is the same as for XP and Vista PCs. If I remove the password here, I cannot see the shared directories on the Samba box - it asks for credentials. I give it the name and password, then it lets me see the shared directories. But when I double-click on one of those, I get the 'not accessible...' message. The same name and password give me full access when typed from an XP or Vista box.

I have a 11.04 ubuntu samba share that is serving files to my network (though I don't really think this is relevant). I have 2 win7 64bit machines (1 laptop/1desktop) that can access these files fine, however I have 1 win7 32bit that is unable to access the files. (I even think it may have been able to before.)

When I browse the network and go to SERVER it says:

"Windows cannot access \\SERVER.... the network path was not found"

HOWEVER when I navigate to \\192.168.1.151\ with explorer it works fine.

What I have tried:
* I have removed all wireless networks and reauthenticated.
* I have set all network configs to the most open possible: network browsing: ON, sharing: ON, homegroup: Off and password authenticate.
* Disabled Norton Internet Security firewall (also on the other two computers)

Again this server is perfectly accessible from all other computers (even a third laptop come to think of it), so it must be something stupid with this one laptop. This problem is driving me up the wall. Anyone have any ideas of what I can try?

Hello,

I'm trying to map a network drive from my windows client running Windows 7 Enterprise. The folder is a Samba share on a linux (Fedora core 13) server. When I attempt to map the drive using the folder \\10.1.1.131\earth, I get the message via a dialog box:

Y:\ is not accessible
an unexpected network error occurred

From the explorer window, it appears like the drive got mapped (green line is on) but when I click it on, I get the same message as above.

I can map the Samba share just fine on machines running Vista Home premium and XP professional but I can't get it to work on my Windows 7 box. I'm figuring that the problem is on the Windows side and not on the Linux side since I can map the drive on other machines using different Windows OS.

I've tried all the suggestions of setting the various network security and network access options in the policy editor and nothing seems to work.

If anyone can offer any suggestions or help, it would be most appreciated...

To access shares on the older Samba servers it's sometimes required that you make adjustments to the Lanman server settings on the Windows 7 machine. The following link shows you the required adjustments.

Afternoon all,

I run an Ubuntu box as a SAMBA server, sharing my media collection. (recently upgraded to Ununtu 9.10)

I have configured the server for WOL, so that it automatically goes into an S3 state when there is no network activity and can be woken from this by sending a magic packet from any of my client machines.

What I'd like to achieve is the automatic sending of a magic packet whenever I try to open any media on the server using my HTPC (mediaportal frontend running on Win7 Pro). I currently have it set up so that I can just run a batch file to send the packet before trying to access the media, however this means having to minimise MP and execute a batch file manually before going back into MP and opening the media. I'd like to automate this in some way, so that the batch file is automatically executed (or the packet send is initiated in some other way) whenever the system tries to access any files on the SAMBA share (mapped as a network drive).

I'm sure that it will be possible, but my brain really isn't engaging today...think that half bottle of Southern Comfort last night may have something to do with it, lol.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,
My basic issue is that my Windows machine fails to connect to a Mac samba share with known good credentials - rejected name and password, no permission to access.

The weird thing is that this just started happening for the first time two days ago. I made no system changes over that period, and connections were working smoothly before that. The other strange thing is that my co-workers PC (also running Windows 8.1) still works perfectly... and I can access the share from that machine with my credentials. And I can even access and see files on my PC from the Mac. So I think I have narrowed it down to something on the windows side, specific to my computer.

Things tried:
I've been doing research for the past few days of course, and am only posting before exhausting all other options. The main things that people purpose a fix is by changing several of the network security policy setting. None of those have made any difference unfortunately. Also tried uninstalling and re-installing my network adapter. Clearing all Netsh & DNS caches. No dice.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

You would be best to go to support.apple.com regarding the issue with Mac OS-X not sharing through Samba to the Windows computer.

Samba is a finicky program for any Linux distro. You could try the latest update from samba.org. If you are running a firewall on either the Windows or Mac OS-X machine, try turning it off. Same with any Internet Security software.

Hi,

I've got come across a very peculiar issue.

We currently have approx 8 servers that are all running SLES 10 SP1 and have samba shares configured on them.

On our Windows 7 machines, if I try to browse the shares via UNC (server1\share\directory) each directory comes up saying "this folder is empty". If I map the samba shares so that they come up with a drive letter, I am then able to browse the directories under the share. This only happens with our Windows 7 machines.

We have Windows XP, 2000 machines and they can browse the share via UNC path.

We have various applications that require that the share is accessed via the UNC path, and not by drive mappings.

I have tried "googling" for answer to this, and have tried the NTLM settings, without any luck.

We also have a server running SUN's Solaris OS, that also has a Samba share configured which we are able to browse via UNC, on the Windows 7 machines, so I'm thinking that it may be a SLES\Windows configuration issue.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as this is holding up our rollout of Windows 7.

All,

In my home network I have several computers. A Kubuntu Linux server, a windows 10 laptop and a window 8.1 desktop.
Under Kubuntu I have setup several Samba shares for things like videos/photos/music, etc. From the Kubuntu side everything seems to be fine, I can see all three computers on my network and can quite happily access all computers too. Same goes for the Win 8.1 desktop, I can see the Kubuntu shares and my Windows 10 laptop no problem.
However, on my Windows 10 laptop I can only see the Windwos 8.1 desktop. I can't even see the Kubuntu server name at all, nevermind access the shares. I have rebooted the Kubuntu machine and stopped and started Samba on numerous occasions. I have rebooted my windows 10 laptop. I have rebooted routers and modems...all to no avail. No matter what I do I simply cannot see the Kubuntu server under the Network section of windows explorer

Now, if I do a \\192.168.15.2 in the windows explorer bar then I can access it, but this is really only a temporary solution as some windows apps need to see the machine name under network in order to access the shared drives. But it does prove that the Kubuntu server is accessible from the windows machine.

Since the Windows 8.1 desktop is not having this issue then I have to assume it's an issue related to Windows 10.

I'm hoping other people have experienced this issue and have a fix for it.

I just setup a samba server on a linux box I have in another room. My laptop (Win 7 Home premium) is on wireless and can't access the share. In my living room I have a wireless router which sends internet wirelessly to my bedroom where my linux box is. That room has another wireless router which bridges the connection to ethernet. My mac (wired) in my living room can access the shares. And so can my linux partition on my wireless laptop. But Windows 7 just doesn't see it. It can see my wireless roku device connected to my TV though. All the devices mentioned are on the same subnet and I can ping the linux box from windows 7 and tracert shows only the linux box, no other devices so nothing should be interfering in between.

I'm lost on what to do. I've tried everything I can think of and can't find any information online that works or is applicable to this setup. Network discovery is on (remember it does see my roku). tried connecting by IP/hostname but doesn't work. I tried disabling the host firewall but didn't help.

The network devices Windows can see is Network (the network name), Stuff (itself), and Roku Stick.

"Alpha" is not set up to establish a connection on port "File and printer sharing (SMB)" with this computer
This account CAN map another Samba network share however (newer Samba, fwiw). Other Vista machines, including this one in the recent past, could map the \\alpha\share1 without problems.

What more is there to check? Which "SMB port" is Vista wanting to use?
 

A:Solved: Vista networking cannot connect to Samba share, NOT 'LM & NTLM' issue

> Which "SMB port" is Vista wanting to use?

That got me thinking... so I fired up 'iptraf' on the 'alpha' box to see what ports were being opened etc; tried the Vista connection, and saw that 445 was Vista's 'SMB' port.

Then I installed rinetd on 'alpha' and set up /etc/rinetd.conf file to read thus:

Code:
10.10.10.203 445 10.10.10.203 139
and started rinetd, which will take the first IP and port (above) and redirect to the second IP and port (above)

Samba shares mounted just fine after that. What a pain, and why this changed I have no idea. Posting the 'fix' for future searchers.

Really need more information to be able to help.
What is the make/model and operating system of each computer?
How are they connected?
Do the compuiters show in each other's Network display?
Can the computers ping each other by IP Address and Computer Name?

This is a general trouble shooting guide for simple problems.

Each computer must have a Unique Name.
Each computer must have at least one user account with a password. Vista will not share with computers that do not.
All the computers must have the same Work Group Name.
File Sharing must be turned on for each computer.
Firewalls must be configured to allow sharing.
To Turn on File Sharing.
For the XP computers go to Control Panel, Network Setup wizard.
Click next.
Click next.
If you are running wireless, the ethernet card will be listed. If connected by ethernet and you have a wireless card it will be listed.
For right now, just select "Ignore the listed connections".
Click next.
Select "This computer connects to the internet by a residential gateway".
Click next.
Enter the Work Group name.
Click next.
Select "Turn on File and printer Sharing"
Click next.
Verify all the information is correct.
Click next.
I would select "Just finish the wizard" and not make a disc. It take about the same amount of time to run the disc as to manually enter the data.
Click next.
Click finish.

I have a unusual case where I need to setup two mapped network drives as two different users to the same share location. When I attempt to map the second drive after inputting the user name and password the system goes on its merry way for a few seconds
and then returns me back to the username/password input.
If I change the second mapped network drive to use the IP address the two shares work happily. If I manipulate the host file and point two paths to the same address then I can also work around this problem. However, I would simply like to know why I am blocked
from setting two mapped drives to point to the same share with different credentials? 
e.g.
TestFolder on TestServer is shared to TestUser1 & TestUser2 where the IP of TestServer is 192.168.0.2.
Case1
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will not work. 
Case2
Mapping S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\192.168.0.2\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will work and I can access the folder as the two different users.
Case 3
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1 it will also work (but I am accessing S: & T: as the same user). 
Why do cases 2 + 3 work, but case 1 does not?

Greetings,
I have an odd issue.. a user reports that they are unable to access a network shared folder from their PC. Here is what I have gathered so far:
-The network share is from their PC located at C:\SQL2014. The share name is SQL2014. Their hostname for this example is "ABC".
-If I attempt to connect to the share from the user's PC ABC to \\ABC\SQL2014 I get the generic error:
  "Windows cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014
   You do not have permission to access \\ABC\SQL2014. Contact your network administrator to request access."
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's IP \\192.168.1.140\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's FQDN at  \\ABC.domain.com\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I map ABC\SQL2014 as a drive letter, I can access it.
-Connecting to this share works fine from any other PC other than ABC.
-I've confirmed the error is affecting any profile old or new on ABC, which means it is a PC-wide issue on ABC.
-If I share C:\SQL2014 as ANY OTHER NAME OTHER THAN SQL2014, I can access it. As in if I share C:\SQL2014 with the share name SQL2014a, I can access \\ABC\SQL2014a.
-Deleted the share and recreated - same issue.
-Created C:\Test and shared it as SQL2014, cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014. It is NOT an issue with the actual SQL2014 folder.

From internet searches I've found the following solutions do not affect my case:
-Clearing CSC/Offline cache (most common working solution)

Hiya everyone

I having a bit of trouble with my home network, I just recently bought a new mobo, processor, etc..and I added the dvd rom, cd writer and hard drives...etc out of my old computer and put with the new items. Everything is up and running just fine except for my network.

My PC specs are:
2.40ghz P4
512mb pc400 ram
Windows XP Home

I currently have the onboard LAN disabled and have a NetGear 10/100mbs PCI NIC card in there. I have it connected to a NetGear Router which connects my broadband connection and two other 2 computers. I have access to the internet just fine but I do not have access to my other computers. On this machine I can see the other computers but it says something similar to 'Network Drive not available' when I click on it. From my other computers I cannot see this one at all.

I havent changed anything and it is all exactly as it was before (it worked perfectly before the upgrade). I have all the updated drivers for everything and my network settings are the same as they were before. Currently I have it set up with client for microsoft networks, file and print sharing and tcp/ip with netbios enabled over tcp/ip. I have no idea why file sharing wont work now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI All,
We have set up three users in a home network where one person holds all the files on their PC and that folder is shared for access to everyone.  It is a remote location so no need to have it too locked down.  I haven't created a homegroup but can
if that changes things.  the issue is that at the moment two people can open the same file at the same time without any message about the file already being in use - then the rule of "last person to save the file" wins.  Is there any way
- by settings on the PC, or by using homegroup instead, or by using a third party tool - to prevent this from happening?
Thanks,

Hi, I have a simple network at home that consists of 2 PCs connected via a crossover cable. They are both running Windows XP Pro. I ran the network wizard on both machines and can share the internet connection fine. However neither computer can share files with the other or share the printer.

When I set folders to ?share this folder on the network? the folder is not visible on the other computer. Both computers have IP addresses set, however neither computer is able to ping the other.

When Computer.A (host of the internet connection) goes to Start -> My Network Places -> ?view workgroup computers? all that shows up in the list is Computer.A.

However if I try to go to ?view workgroup computers? on Computer.B I get the following error message:

?Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator etc.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available?

I have searched the forums and found various steps that I have tried, but I still am not able to get this to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 

A:Can share internet but can't share files

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

The quickest fix is a router/hub rather than peer to peer cable.
Do you have file and print sharing turned on?
Try setting up network wizard to something other than "MSHOME"
You might have only internet sharing turned on.
Did you create the files for network or just "finish network setup",
in the wizard?

This has helped me by setting guest password.

Protect your guest account - The guest account can be used by hackers and/or malware to gain greater access to your machine, even when turned off. The guest account can't be removed. However, you can disable it, but this can affect the functionality of your computer. Instead, what you can do, and what you probably should do, is put a strong password on it, and then leave it safely turned off. You do this by opening a command window (start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter). at the command prompt, type net user guest <password> (where <password> is your chosen password, being something you can remember). After hitting the enter key, the guest account will be password protected. If your machine is networked and authenticating as guest, then you'll need this password to access network shares - if you tell it to remeber the password, it will only ask the once.Click to expand...

Searched thru post, lots of near misses but no solution to my issue. Only on windows 10 does this problem exist.
I connect office equipment to customers pcs/networks. I use a script to create a hidden/special user that has admin permissions plus makes me a share folder. I then share out the folder with read/write permissions for the hidden user. It works great for days or weeks...until what seems to be win10 updates come across and my permission gets removed. The user is still there, the folder is still shared, but my user no longer works. If I create another user the same way, it works again until some time later.
Now the kicker is, this only happens on about 5% of my customers, other win10 installs have worked and still work. Its only some computers doing this. When I look at share permissions, full access is on. Now I have not tried the "everyone" permission.
Any suggestions?

Ive got a wireless network setup between my Vista Laptop and XP box via a Netgear DG834PN. The internet is accessible wirelessly from the laptop but I am unable to share files between the two. (I have previously shared files with a friends laptop by simply plugging in the wireless dongle and allowing vista to complete the setup so I assume its an issue with the laptop settings.)

Details below. (dont have much experience with vista sorry)

On the vista Laptop -> Network Sharing Centre ->
*File sharing is ON
*Network discovery is ON
*Network type is PRIVATE NETWORK
*Public folder sharing is ON

When trying to access Network\\Laptop (My laptops name) I can view local files. When trying to access Network\\XPBox I get 'windows cannot access' error.

On the XP Box I CAN SEE 'Laptop' under MSHOME (workgroup name same on both computers as suggested somewhere else) but when I attempt to access I receive '\\Laptop not accessible'

Hope that's enough detail, im sure im missing some.

Thanks in advance.

So I accidently bent my Belkin surf and share WiFi adapter on my desktop, and the internet cut out. I assumed it was broken, so I plugged it into my laptop and turned the wifi switch to off to test it out. Strangely, it worked fine. Then I attempted other USB ports on my tower, none of them worked. The strange thing is I can see all of the available wifi networks, but can't connect to them. I tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting, and reinstalling but that doesn't seem to work. The chip is fine, as it worked on my laptop, but it refuses to work on the tower.
Any ideas?

I've got a strange problem dealing with a 2012 R2 share.  We have a lab with 30 Windows 7 Enterprise workstations.  They all have the same desktop via a GPO applied folder redirection to a share on the above mentioned 2012 R2 server.  All
but 4 of them can connect and pull the desktop with the appropriate shortcuts, network folders, etc.

So the share permissions have no explicit denies.  In an effort to resolve this issue I've added both Everyone and Authenticated Users with Read permissions on top of the appropriate AD Group object that already had Read permissions and of
course SYSTEM and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The NTFS permissions have of course CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The appropriate AD Group also has Read permissions.  No explicit NTFS denies either.

Using either the same account that belongs to the appropriate AD Group or my Domain Admin account (which doesn't have the redirected desktop) I can login to all workstations and all but the above mentioned four get the folder redirected desktop.
 When I authenticate with my DA account and try to connect to the share on those four computers I get the same error the user gets:

Network Error
Windows cannot access \\SERVER\Share$
You do not have permission to access \\SERVER\Share$.  Contact your network administrator to request access.

We have a number of users that have lost access to the network share My Documents where everything they create is redirected and stored on a Sunfire server with the data on NFS volume. We are a Xen virtual shop running Server 2003. We've just built a Server 2008 that we are going to promote to PDC.
What's more baffling is that it is happening on newly built Dell 390 Windows 7 Pro and some existing Dell W7 Pro machines but not on the old XP PCs. When it first appeared the user went from XP to 7. He still has access to the share on the XP machine but on his W7 pro he gets an "Access Denied. See your Administrator" message when trying to open MS office docs or PDFs or photos. If I log into the new W7 PC as domain admin and try and copy the documents from the share to his W7 desktop I get a "you must have permission from user to do this". When I go back to my W7 PC I have no problem moving users documents around.

User has full control of folder and all subfolders, user is the owner of folder and is an administrator on the PC. I've set up the trust center in MS Office to specifically trust the path & share that we redirect to. I've used the Take Ownership utility I found on this forum on the parent folder to no avail.

Hello,

A few questions:

1) Where is the share that you are trying to access? On the Windows 2003 Server?
2) Are the new windows 7 PC's on the Domain?
3) Have you checked the Advanced sharing to se if file and print sharing is enabled on the PCs?
4) Why have you touched the Local Security Policy? By default you shouldnt need to.
5) Have you already added the Windows 2008 Server to the Domain? If so, did you make sure that the Domain and Forest was at the correct functionality?
6) Have you checked AD for errors? (dcdiag/event lofgs)
7) Check the security event logs on the Server where the Share is.
8) Disable the Anti-Virus and Firewall to test.
9) Recheck the permissions of the share. Paste a screen shot if you can.

10) Are the servers local to the users or hosted on the Web? If on another site, how are they accessed? VPN?
11) If you're redirecting paths did you change the logon scrips acordingly for Windows 7?
