I've spent days on this and hours researching what others have tried but no joy.
I've got Samba 4.5.8-Debian running on Raspbian [GNU/Linux 9.1 (stretch)]. I am trying to connect to a shared folder on the Raspbian OS by connecting from Windows 7 (Home Premium). I get a pop up username/password log-in box but it never authenticates me. I've tried dozens of permutations of the settings in smb.conf and even made registry changes. Nothing has worked!
I have tested accessing the share from an Ubuntu machine and it does authenticate.
Here is my smb.conf file. It does allow an Ubuntu machine access the share but not a Win 7 Home Premium client:
Code: Select all
# Global parameters [global] log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d usershare allow guests = Yes map to guest = Bad User obey pam restrictions = Yes pam password change = Yes passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* . passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u server role = standalone server unix password sync = Yes dns proxy = No idmap config * : backend = tdb [NextCloudPi] path = /var/www/nextcloud/data/admin/files create mask = 0770 directory mask = 0771 force create mode = 0660 force directory mode = 0770 force group = www-data read only = No valid users = pi
I checked with smbpasswd and the [pi] Samba user does exist both in Samba and in the Raspbian OS and I even changed the pwd to be sure I am using the correct one from the Windows log-in pop up.
Here is the error I get:
Other things I tried:
1. Updated the /etc/hosts file in Win 7 to map the (fixed) ip address of the pi to its hostname: nextcloudpi
2. Open regedit and navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa then choose to create DWORD named LmCompatibilityLevel then set the value to 2 although value 1.
DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0
From my reading there could be a hundred different things that would work for someone else but not for my setup. Nevertheless I would be very grateful for any help or assistance.
