SOLVED: Users Can't Access Shares

Postby gd515 » Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:11 am

Hello, I recently just got new internet installed and a new router (Google Wifi) hooked up. I redone my Amahi Server from scratch which is Amahi 11 with Fedora 27. I myself can log in with SSH , Amahi Dashboard and I can access shares. However, when one of the users thats been created tries to access shares etc .. \\IP ADDRESS it will tell them "The username or password is incorrect". I can use the same credentials and it can log into SSH perfectly fine, seems to just be the shares (samba). In the Amahi Dashboard under Network and settings I have the DHCP Server box unchecked. I'm letting my router handle everything,that's why I'm using \\IP ADDRESS instead of \\HDA.

I have tried accessing the HDA via \\IP ADDRESS and \\HDA
I have tried to add HDA to windows Host file
I made sure there window machine and the server has the same credentials
I restarted both window machines and the HDA, Samba Server.

Not sure why users cant log into a network share via \\IP ADDRESSS but can under SSH?

Thanks!!!!

Might need to clear the credentials saved in Windows on their machine.

When they try to access shares, does your user name and password work?

Yes the users are on different machines. I even checked the credential manager to make sure there where no previous logins saved for HDA and there is nothing. I also double checked to make sure the workgroup is the same too.

I Can log into the shares with my login credentials via \\IP ADDRESS no problem even on the other machines.

Maybe a issue with Samba. Have you restarted the HDA?

Also, you might want to check out shares troubleshooting in the wiki..

You can mark this post CLOSED. I end up getting it to accept the username and passwords by deleting all users and adding them back in. Now all users are able to login to there shares. I suspect it was some kind of issue with sambas configuration like you said??? Not sure but its working now .... Thank you bigfoot65!!
