I think I configured my Samba fine, but I cant access the share from a Windows machine. The network is set as bridged in VB configuration and I can ping the Windows machine from CentOS. Also, I can ping it back from the Windows machine.
We are running a Samba 3 domain (Samba 3.5.6) with a LDAP backend. Lately, we installed Windows 7 on a virtual machine (called schnellwienix) and joined the computer to the domain, following the hints on the Samba Wiki Windows 7 page. The Windows machine acquitted the joining with a success message, and our DC created a correct machine account.
Hello everybody i hope some one could help me regarding samba.. i am running a FC13 acting as a samba server & an IP of 192.168.0.3.. I have already installed samba from the fedora core repo.. I can see my samba server on my winxp client.. but everytime i tried to access the samba share a windows message appears
It's not a firewall problem; disabling the firewall entirely doesn't help. I have the workgroup set properly, and the location I want to share is enabled. But the entire computer won't show up, even on my openSUSE machine's Network section. I can access my Windows computers' shares from it, but not the other way around. It was working, then I rebooted and I lost it.

I'm having issue SAMBA server. From Window 7, any SAMBA folders show up as empty folders. All of those SAMBA volumes are with guest access on, so any users can read and write (basically there is no security settings.)
All of the samba volumes can be accessed with Windows XP and Mac OS X.
It was time to upgrade our group server (new HDs, problems with old installation of DRBD, etc..).
Going as usually for CentOS i upgraded whole system from 6.3 to 6.4 The later one came with samba 3.6 as the old one was 3.5. I transferred most of users by copying /etc/password, /etc/shadow and samba accounts with pdbedit. Homes were on nfs-drive.
