, , No Comments

 The following is the step by step procedure to configure a Samba Server

  1. Server IP address is xxx.xxx.0.254 and machine name is Server1
  2. Windows machine IP address is xxx.xxx.0.2 and machine name is client2
  3. Firewall Should be disabled.
chkconfig iptables off
service iptables stop
chkconfig ip6tables off
service ip6tables stop

4. To check if all rpms required for samba are installed or not.

              #rpm –qa | grep samba, then it displays the following

5. If not, install it using
                #rpm –ivh samba

6. Copy the original configuration file as smb.conf.bck
               #cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba.conf.bck
              (This will keep a backup copy of your configuration file.)

7. Now edit the configuration file
              #vi /etc/samba/smb.conf

8. To share home directory edit this part of /etc/samba/smb.conf


            comment=Home directories
            browseable =no

9. To share printer edit this part of /etc/samba/smb.conf


           comment = All printers
           path = /var/spool/samba
           browseable = no

10.To configure share called IHNCSHARE edit this part of /etc/samba/smb.conf
[IHNC’s share]
comment = Testing Samba Server
path = /samba
valid users = user1, user2

11. Save the file with wq command

12. To check your configuration file type testparm

13. Create two samba users user1 and user2
useradd user1
useradd user2

14. Create smbpassword for both the users
smbpasswd –a user1
smbpasswd –a user2

  1. Now you stop/start the samba services

service smb stop
service smb start

  1. To see what is shared from your server through samba for a particular user

smbclient -L Server1 –U user1 or smbclient –L //xxx.xxx.0.1 –U user1

  1. To see what is shared for a particular host

smbclient –L mac2

  1. Now, permanently make samba server on
    #chkconfig smb on
