Cannot Mount Samba Share

  1. 2 years ago

    After I created my boot media, the procedure of uploading an image would fail at mounting the Samba share. I discovered a dependency problem with Samba. While troubleshooting, I changed some passwords for the system users 'cd_share_rw' and 'cd_share_ro', but changed them back to what I had initially set during the web-installation of CloneDeploy. Samba is now working from Windows, Android, and OSX. The boot media is still failing at mounting the share 'cd_share'. Do I need to recreate my boot media after updating the read and write passwords on the web interface? Is there a log file that can show me what happened or what the server returned when the boot media failed to mount the share?

    Thanks. I found the problem - when I updated the passwords on the web interface, it wiped out the ip address of the server. Silly me.

  2. check you config on /etc/samba/smb.conf

    Down in your smb.conf adjust as my example

    my example
    ###############################################################
    [cd_share]
    path = /cd_dp
    valid users = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
    create mask = 02775
    directory mask = 02775
    guest ok = no
    writable = yes
    browsable = yes
    read list = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
    write list = @cdsharewriters
    force create mode = 02775
    force directory mode = 02775
    force group = +cdsharewriters

    #######################################################

    If you have followed the default installation

    echo "[cd_share] path = /cd_dp valid users = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro create mask = 02775 directory mask = 02775 guest ok = no writable = yes browsable = yes read list = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro write list = @cdsharewriters force create mode = 02775 force directory mode = 02775 force group = +cdsharewriters" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf

  3. Thanks. I found the problem - when I updated the passwords on the web interface, it wiped out the ip address of the server. Silly me.
