    Samba share problem

    The problem is it does not exist.

    Using Samba4. Share is defined as

    Code:
    [shared]
    path=/var/lib/samba/shared
    read only = no
    I restart samba, then

    Code:
    smblclient -l myhost
    And it is not listed. At all.

    Any ideas how something so flipping basic doesn't work?

    I have other shares working just fine. Is this a folder permissions thing?

      There are none. This is the frustrating thing.

      Code:
      log file= /var/log/samba/log.%m
      log level = 5
      And nada. Nichts. Zip. Diddly.

                What version of Linux? New up to date versions don't use syslog so messages won't be where you think they are. they use journalctl...

                journalctl -u smbd.service

                  Yeah annoying! Changing stuff like that.

                  And you can't even upgrade RHEL5 to RHEL6 in place, WTF?

                  And no alt_disk_install either.
