http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello all, I used to have open-suse 11.1 on my Server which had Samba 3.2.7-11.4.1-2210 installed. For this I used the following smb.conf (partially): -- see further down below -- I use a WinXP SP2 client and after reboot I connect several drives e.g. M:// --> shared drive for my family P:// --> my personal drive It all used to work with the older version :) Then I updated to Suse 11.2 which installed Samba 3.4.2-1-1-3-1--2229. Since then only the shared drives work - the private ones cause difficulties. Via a different german forum (LINUX • openSUSE - samba Problem nach Update auf 11.2) I was told to update the passwords on the Server due to the passdb tdbsam version which was introduced with Samba 3.3ff This helped a bit further as I can now connect to the drives. HOWEVER: I always(!) :'( have to disconnect/connect again. It used to be that I was asked the PW when I clicked on the drive after Win-reboot. I now only get the error message: error when re-connecting to P:// ; Microsoft Windows Network: There´s more data available. The connection was not made (translated from the orignal german error message). I deliberately want to use the security=share as then I can connect to all the other "private" drives from one PC simulteneouly. With security=user only one connection with my user name is possible and I can not quickly access the others drives. I if wanted, all below shown shares could be mapped onto separate drives simultaneously. To cut the story short: Security = share I can not automatically re-connect drives to PW protected areas of the server. Question: what can I do? :confused: Here´s the smb.conf (other log-info nmb.log, smb.log ... can be seen in the other forum) TelefonHost-Server:/var/log/samba # testparm Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf Processing section "[AllShare]" Processing section "[Multimedia]" Processing section "[MultimediaRW]" Processing section "[Downloads]" Processing section "[PrivatFx]" xxx Loaded services file OK.
