Description Harika 2009-04-14 06:42:31 UTC

I have installed samba on ZLinux RHEL 5.3 machine. SMB and NMB services are running.

I have created a share on Linux machine.

From windows machine when i am trying to map that share  \\ip\share to one of my drives, it is prompting the window for username and password. After entering the details it is displaying an error pop up window with the message "The network path \\ip\share could not  be found".

I have chekcked the /var/log/samba/smbd.log.
This is the message

2009/04/14 02:32:36, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(1191) ( couldn't find service share

This is my smb.conf file

	comment = RHEL share for Samba
	path = /opt/share/
	valid users = root
	public = no
	writeable = yes
;	browseable = yes
	printable = no
	guest ok = yes
	create mask = 0765

Please assist me on this as early as possible.

You should contact \\ip\samba. The string inside the [] defines the client-visible name, the path statement is invisible to the client.

Marking this as invalid, this seems not to be a bug.
