I had posted this thread awhile back about my Samba troubles.
But since this time it has been up and running perfectly.
Now when I try to open files on another computer I get various errors depending on the program but it is essentially, permission denied.
I have restart samba on each box, restart each computer, logged in as different users and rechecked that all of my settings are the same. I'm at the end of my rope so I figured I'd take it to the gurus.
Thanks in advance.
same problem here. samba 4.0.5-1
i rebooted today and got access denied everywhere. still looking around for a solution, for now i downgraded to samba 3.6.13-1 (remove /var/lib/samba dir after removing samba 4). will post back if i find something for samba 4.

OK, found the solution. I have simple shares so basically after adding my shares the same way i had them before to the new smb.conf i had to add my user again to samba with the following command:
# smbpasswd -a <username>
after that restart the services like this:
# systemctl restart smbd.service nmbd.service
here is a dump of my service definitions from testparm for reference:
[global] server string = MediaServer log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 load printers = No printcap name = /dev/null dns proxy = No idmap config * : backend = tdb [homes] comment = Home Directories read only = No browseable = No [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba printable = Yes print ok = Yes browseable = No [Media_1] path = /media/Media_1 valid users = kevin read only = No create mask = 0664 directory mask = 0775 [Media_2] path = /media/Media_2 valid users = kevin read only = No create mask = 0664 directory mask = 0775
LOL just noticed this is a 2012 threat! i thought it was this month's. anyways, hopefully someone finds this useful.
