Samba shares and Win98

Samba shares and Win98

Post by Jürgen Markman » Wed, 08 Sep 1999 04:00:00


I have the following problem with the Win98 clients accessing a samba

First time the Win98 computer is rebooted the "login" for the samba
share works properly. But the second user who tries a login fails. Only
after rebooting the Win98 client, a next login is possible.

Does anyone know a solution for this problem ?



1. Samba share behaving differently in Win2000 and Win98

I'm having a strange problem with a Samba share (or perhaps it's just
due to my beginner's mistakes): It can be fully accessed from a
Windows 2000 computer, however, when accessing it from a Windows 98
computer, it will be read-only, unable even to read subdirectories
(that is, Win98 can only read files in the share's main directory, see
the subdirectories, not cd to subdirectories, not delete, write to,
rename any files in the share).
What could be wrong?
The relevant parts of /etc/samba/smb.conf:

        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        remote announce =
        dns proxy = yes
        preserve case = yes
        security = user
        encrypt passwords = yes
        workgroup = NAME
        server string = DESCRIPTION
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        short preserve case = yes
        netbios name = samba server
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        os level = 1
        remote browse sync =
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        case sensitive = yes
        max log size = 0
        preferred master = no
        default case = lower
        hosts allow = 127.

        path = /storage
        writable = yes
        browseable = yes
        map system = yes
        map hidden = yes
        comment = Everybody's files
        public = yes
