Unable to Mount SAMBA share

Dear All,

As-salamu alaykum

I am having problem when i am trying to mount SAMBA share on client, My home-made LAB environment is like

SERVER - RHEL 7.6 with the below configuration

yum install samba -y

mkdir /samba-share

useradd samba

 smbpasswd -a samba

chmod 0770 /samba-share/

vim /etc/samba/smb.conf (Contains)

[samba-share]
comment = my samba test
path = /samba-share
write list = samba

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=samba

firewall-cmd --reload

pdbedit -v samba (Below is output)

Unix username: samba
NT username:
Account Flags: [U ]
User SID: S-1-5-21-962950129-3860769903-710787621-1000
Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-962950129-3860769903-710787621-513
Full Name:

CLIENT - RHEL 8.0 with the below configuration

yum group install "Network File System Client" -y

smbclient -L //192.168.123.210 (Below is output)

Enter SAMBA\root's password:
Anonymous login successful

Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
print$ Disk Printer Drivers
samba-share Disk my samba test
IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 4.8.3)
Reconnecting with SMB1 for workgroup listing.
Anonymous login successful

Server Comment
--------- -------

Workgroup Master
--------- -------

mount -o username=samba //192.168.123.210/samba-share /mnt

Error is:- mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

A quick google search says the reason of this may be samba user is locked but at the server side in the ouput of pdbedit -v samba it did not shows the L flag which it is not locked.

Thank You for reading all this, please let me know if someone get this working.

Re: Unable to Mount SAMBA share

Maybe you're missing the samba_share_t SELinux type on the /samba-share folder.

See:

As-salamu alaykum,

Dear All,

Issue has been resolved

 it seems like it was the permission related issue, as i changed permission chown samba samba-share/, Alhamdulillah it worked.
