I have a CentOS7 system (SOFA) and want to install a Samba share named “STUFF” for the machines inside my home. All users in my home have read access to the share, but only one user “me” has write permission. The configuration below worked just fine when the Samba system was on CentOS 6, but did not work under CentOS 7. The client machine is Windows 10. I have changed all “private” information for this message.
The CentOS 7 machine is running with SELINUX disabled, and effectively without firewall.
Windows network browsing finds the computer, but not the share. (it used to find the share with CentOS 6).
The server name is SOFA
The share name is STUFF
the Workgroup name is MYGROUP
The Linux account is “melinux”
The logon name from windows is “me”
I have issued the command
smbpass -a me
