I do not get any type of error but when I enable samba ithe slide bar shows enabled go away from that page and check it at any other location it shows up as off and my windows machine does not see any shares
Hmmm, that’s not good.
Are you familiar with the Linux command line?
I’d like to see the output of the following commands:
systemctl restart smb systemctl restart nmb journalctl -xen 20
As well as the content from the rockstor logs during a start attempt:
tail -n 50 /opt/rockstor/var/log/rockstor.log
no journal files were opened due to insufficient permisions
but the smb restart showed as sucessful will check the samba status
samba status is still unchanged still glitched
my log file is in Chinese I opened it in notepad
All of the commands I mentioned must be run as root, try instead:
sudo systemctl restart smb sudo systemctl restart nmb sudo journalctl -xen 20 sudo tail -n 50 /opt/rockstor/var/log/rockstor.log
This should work, as your Rockstor admin user should be in the sudoers file.
Post the log regardless, I can run it through a translator, but we need to see what Rockstor’s log contains!
