Hi have you changed the selinux setting to samba_share_, assuming you are using selinux. see the TUV documentation.
set selinux using the following comands, in my example my folder is /home/jon/samba_share. //set the selinux linux property /usr/sbin/semanage fcontext -a -t samba_share_t "/home/jon/samba_share(/.*)?" //update files in folder /sbin/restorecon -R -v /home/jon/samba_share //think next lines about checking it has been changed ls -dZ /home/jon/samba_share ls -Z /home/jon/samba_share jon On Sun, 2011-10-16 at 21:30 -0700, Todd And Margo Chester wrote: > Hi All, > > # rpm -qa \*samba\* > samba-client-3.5.6-86.el6_1.4.x86_64 > samba-common-3.5.6-86.el6_1.4.x86_64 > samba-3.5.6-86.el6_1.4.x86_64 > samba-winbind-clients-3.5.6-86.el6_1.4.x86_64 > > I am trying to migrate my CentOS 5.6 Samba configure to my new > SL 6.1 server. > > From both Windows XP KVM guest and Linux's smbclient, I can > see the shares, but when I try to go into the shares I get: > > smbclient: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED > XP Guest: Access is denied > > You will note that Samba lets me log in with smbclient and > let me see the shares in XP without a password prompt (both > passwords are the same on the host and guest side). > > And my user name is in /var/lib/samba/private/smbpasswd. > > And nothing about the access denied shows up in any log files: samba > log files or /var/log/messages.
