OES 2015 and Samba

Trying to configure an SMB Share on my new OES 2015 server, I'm using an NSS volume for the Samba share.

/media/nss/DATA1/ -Share name is called SMB


Followed the documentation https://www.novell.com/documentation/oes2015/file_samba_cifs_lx/data/bxv32e8.html

when I checked if my testing user was LUM enabled I did see a positive response from the "id" command

"id testsmb" uid=602 gid=602(oes2015smb-w-sambausergroup) group=602 (oes2015smb-w-sambausergroup)

In the /var/log/messages I did see the following canonicalize_connect_path failed for service testsmb, path /home/testsmb (I did not add a home directory so I assume that is the error message)

When trying to connect from the Windows 7 machine I try to map R: \\192.168.1.248\SMB - I'm presented with the network password field I add in the eDirectory user name = testsmb and the password hitting "ok"and I get R:\ is not accessible - Access is denied

any thoughts?

while i can't see a valid reason for using this protocol i roughly remember that there's been a requirement for the user to be tied to a universal password policy which allows admin to retrieve passwords. so maybe it's just an assignment issue or someone has tampered with your UP policy.
If you like it: like it.
