Samba wont allow me to connect to shares on second partition

Hi there

I have installed Fedora 16 lxde 64bit spin.

I followed the steps to setup samba using this link

http://www.howtoforge.com/fedora-12-...tdbsam-backend

I have not made big changes to the smb.conf file.

I have only added my shares and also add this......

Code:
# This option controls how unsuccessful authentication attempts are mapped
# to anonymous connections
   map to guest = bad user
all of my shares is located on /home/shares/

During setup i have chosen to create seperate partition for /home/shares

The problem that i have is that when i try to connect from windows then i wil get access denied error, telling me to check permissions etc.

But if i create a share before the partion (FOR EXAMPLE /home/new INSTEAD OF /home/shares/new) then i am able to connect without problem.

I think it has something to do with the shares folder having its own partition.

Any ideas?

No one replied

Anyway i found a workaround that worked for me.

Created a symbolic link(softlink) and put the path of sym link in the smb.conf

Hello,

show how you got it shared in smb.conf ?
how do you have user id/password setup ?
Do you also have netbios running ?
Is this on F12 ?

Hi there.

No it is on fedora 16.

The main reason for my problem was that selinux was set to enforcing.

After setting it to disabled and rebooting everything worked.
