Is it possible to remap the UID (and GID) that is being reported to a samba client? It looks like it may be possible with the various
idmap options, but it looks overly complicated for the simple remap I want to accomplish and I’m confused as to whether this is even the right approach.
Consider two machines A and B. Machine A has user
smbuser with UID
701. Machine B only has a
root user with UID
smb.conf excerpt from machine A:
[share1] path = /tmp/share1 valid users = smbuser
On machine B:
mount -t cifs -o username=smbuser,pass=**** //10.1.1.11/share1 /mnt ls -l /mnt
drwx------ 701 701 0 Jan 1 00:00 . drwx------ root root 0 Jan 1 00:00 .. -rw------- 701 701 42 Jan 1 00:00 testfile
drwx------ root root 0 Jan 1 00:00 . drwx------ root root 0 Jan 1 00:00 .. -rw------- root root 42 Jan 1 00:00 testfile
TL;DR: I need samba to remap UID
701 -> 0 when feeding directory lists to clients.
- Kubuntu desktop 18.04, tower
- Lubuntu desktop 18.04, laptop
- Windows 10, laptop
- I installed and configured samba server as per Install and Configure Samba in Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver
- My addition to
[kubuntu_home] path = /home/myusername available = yes valid users = myusername read only = no browseable = yes public = yes writable = yes
- I thought that there was a typo on the website, but when I checked it out on samba.org, I found that
writable is a synonym for
- I mounted the samba share as per How to Mount Samba Share in Ubuntu Linux
$ sudo mount -t cifs -o username=myusername,password=mypassword //192.168.###.###/kubuntu_home /mnt/kubuntu_home
- I mounted the samba share as per How to connect to Linux Samba shares from Windows 10
From Lubuntu, I can read files but cannot write.
- From Kubuntu,
ls -l ~ shows files and directories as belonging to
- From Lubuntu,
ls -l /mnt/kubuntu_home/ displays all files and folders as belonging to
- Somewhere along the way, I saw a suggestion to add
force user = myusername to
smb.conf. This did not make a difference.
- No problems reading/writing from Windows.
I have two Linux/Ubuntu boxes.
- Box A (192.168.1.10): works as a file server, with Samba installed. It’s always switched on.
- Box B: workstation with my office tools, which I reboot each time I need to work with it.
In Box B, I have ‘/etc/fstab’ modified:
//192.168.1.10/SambaSharedDirectory /mnt/SambaFiles cifs username=tom,password=foo,rw,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
However, each time I reboot Box B, I have to do ‘sudo mount -a’ to mount the file directory of Box A.
Is it possible to automate it to avoid mounting it with every reboot? Thank you very much.
I have a samba server installed on debian. I use smb to get a network drive on windows.
When i want to search with the windows search engine through my network folders, it takes hours. Is there a solution to speed up the search engine? I’ve read something about indexing but no one on the hole internet has the same problem….

On my AcerAspireone I have Windows7 and Ubuntu. I have installed samba in order to access my windows files over a network (from W10). I mounted the windows partition and created a share of the windows map in that partition. On the Ubuntu system the partition is mounted in
/media/pp/Acer. I created a local network share for the Windows folder in
/media/pp/Acer and called it WindowsAcer2 and checked the “allow others….” My smb.conf is:
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server %v NetBIOS name = ubuntu security = user map to guest = bad user name resolve order = bcast host dns proxy = no [WindowsAcer2] comment = W7dirWindows path =/media/pp/Acer/ browsable = yes writable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no create mode = 0777 directory mode 0777
I have access to the windows files when I go to the mounted partition by
/media/pp/Acer/Windows, but I get the mentioned error when trying (on the same PC!) to open the
Network/WORKGROUP/Ubuntu//WindowsAcer2 shared file Anybody can help me on this one?
I’ve encountered a recent problem with my Samba server (18.04). I have gigabit networking on both ends, but I seem to only get up/down speeds of about 2MB/s. However, using ssh, I can transfer files at around 30MB/s. I’ve only noticed this issue recently.
I have a weird issue with my Mac OS Mojave.
There is a Ubuntu samba share in my network, and it will consistently fail to connect, until I open the terminal, and browser the directory using it.
Once this is done, the samba share works straight away.
I’m trying to set up a very simple samba configuration, in which a single user (the owner of the share) has full access to the share, and other users have only read access. The following is the smb.conf:
[global] security = user workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server %v encrypt passwords = yes log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 create mask = 644 force create mode = 644 directory mask = 755 force directory mode = 755 [test] comment = Test path = /admin/test writeable = yes browseable = yes
I can create and modify files from windows without problems most of the time, but some applications add extended ACL when saving files (like MS Word for example), and afterwards I can’t modify or overwrite those files, but oddly enough I can delete them.
root@vsapdes:/admin/test=>ls -l total 16 -rw-r--r-- 1 usrcap usr 4 Jun 27 12:59 notepad_file_no_acl.txt -rw-r--r--+ 1 usrcap usr 11256 Jun 27 2019 word_file_with_acl.docx root@vsapdes:/admin/test=>aclget word_file_with_acl.docx * * ACL_type AIXC * attributes: base permissions owner(usrcap): rw- group(usr): r-- others: r-- extended permissions enabled specify r-- g:usr specify rw- u:usrcap
The samba server is version 4.9.3 and is running on AIX 7.1 in case that has anything to do with the problem (I can modify the file from the terminal with the same user I login into samba with, so I don’t think thats the case).
I’m trying to enable folder sharing through samba on my ubuntu 18.04 server;
What I already did:
- Edit the /etc/samba/smb.conf as in follow
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP interfaces = lo eth0 server role = standalone server server string = Samba Server %v security = user map to guest = bad user name resolve order = bcast host dns proxy = no bind interfaces only = yes log file = /var/log/samba/smb.log max log size = 10000 [Public] path = /samba/share writable = yes guest ok = yes guest only = yes read only = no create mode = 0777 directory mode = 0777 force user = nobody
- Run testparm with this result
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Processing section "[Public]" Loaded services file OK. Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions # Global parameters [global] bind interfaces only = Yes dns proxy = No interfaces = lo eth0 log file = /var/log/samba/smb.log map to guest = Bad User max log size = 10000 name resolve order = bcast host security = USER server role = standalone server server string = Samba Server %v idmap config * : backend = tdb [Public] create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 force user = nobody guest ok = Yes guest only = Yes path = /samba/share read only = No

I have been on this for around 5 days, does someone have any clues what’s going on? how to fix this? I just need one public share and another one for restricted access.
I use Ubuntu Studio 18.04.2, with the extended support time life through additional PPA backports.
I am a home user. I’m not a programmer and/or network manager. I don’t have any network here. I just use the computer to my personal work (music, audio and MIDI, record, edit and playback).
I wonder the relevance of samba, CTDB and TDB to my personal installation.
Can I uninstall all those apps?
