sambahelper credentials 10.04 [solved]
« on: August 06, 2012, 12:54:22 pm »
Related to my post here:

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12721.msg91271.html#msg91271

I haven't fiddled with Samba previously because I don't have windows machines on my network officially.... but now I'm having to understand it because it may be at the bottom of my media drive being marked offline (see above post).

My question is-

The credentials that can be found in the file:

/usr/pluto/var/sambaCredentials.secret

Which appear to be used to mount smb shares across the various MDs and the core, in my system, appear to differ at least between the core and one of my MDs. Is this normal? Is the password randomly generated at install time and differs for each MD or should these all be the same password?

I'm just wondering if the differences mean I have a problem with my installation or if they're to be expected.

Woohoo.... seem to have solved my samba problem. Will update wiki(s) as well in a moment.

A few tips....

1. I'm assuming that sambacredentials -
/usr/pluto/var/sambaCredentials.secret
should be the same across all MDs. I have made sure mine are and so far so good.

2. The SAMBA (SMBD) that is installed and setup on 10.04 appears to not use /etc/samba/smbpasswd file for its users and passwords despite the fact that this file is created. It appears to use a newer authentication scheme. To add/remove/delete/list SAMBA users you need to use the pdbedit command.
Code: [Select]
dcerouter#> sudo pdbedit -L -v
lists all samba users

dcerouter#> sudo pdbedit -a -u sambahelper
Enter password:

Allows you to set the password for sambahelper.
I did this on dcerouter and set it to the password listed in the credentials file(s) for sambahelper and since my video list is now showing despite reboots and restarts of all mds, I presume the statusradar script (see related post) is now able to query the samba shares. Yay.

Edit: Stupid idiot, sorry guys-> not "pbedit", "pdbedit'. Thanks for picking that up, bushtech.

This is the response I get when attempting the command mentioned above.

Basically, don't fuck with any of this, and ssh to the different media directors from the core, i.e.

as root, ssh moon36

This will use the proper NIS credentials to go to the target media director.

I apologize, I followed related links to this thread as I am trying to troubleshoot the offline drive issue of media not displaying.  I see now that this topic is semi-related as the discussion about offline drives turned to samba credentials.
