Hello,

I've got samba 3.0.2 installed and i've run the mksmbpasswd.sh script which seems to generate the file ok. then i've set the permissions in the samba directory to 500 and the permissions of the smbpasswd file to 600.

the global variables in my smb.conf file are as follows:

workgroup = LINUXGROUP
server string = Samba Server
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
max log size = 50
dns proxy = no

now when i run testparm my global variables are outputted as such:

workgroup = LINUXGROUP
server string = Samba Server
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
max log size = 50
dns proxy = no

ok here are my questions:
why aren't the security and smb passwd file attribultes listed?
how do i find where the problem is?
can i uninstall the smbpasswd file?

also when i set "security = share" it works ok.

i have been trying to work this out for ages!!!!!!!!

thanks in advance

On my machines, users only give their password on first use. If you want your users to authenticate on every login, you'll need to specifically set this. Here is a link to O'Reilly's online book, "Using Samba":

And here is a link to a new forum which is dedicated to Samba only:

P.S. Don't forget to come back and give us your solutions!
