Windows 10: Cannot get the Join Domain option

    I checked and the SMB's were already selected, however I checked and unchecked them and when I closed the screen,, Windows did fetch something from the Internet and did a restart. However there is still not a connection.

    In an effort to trigger an error, I tried mapping \\centos7\html which I got. Though the Centos 7 gurus have looked at my settings for Samba, I think I'm missing some thing. Here is the error:

    Now I really did something bad! Somehow I changed the permissions for C: drive and now I cannot access it...not even in the Administrator login. Am I permanently locked out? When I saw that the C: drive was accessible by the Mac, I must have incorrectly changed the permissions for NUC\users that effect Admin login's. Damn!

    You should never really need to change permissions for the root of the C: drive, it shouldn't be available as a share to connect to. For sharing purposes, subfolders are the ones that are shared. Permissions on these can be changed, as needed.

    Try to reset the permissions on the root of C:\ back to their standard settings. Note that some of the Authenticated Users permissions are for 'This folder only', while others are for 'Subfolders and files only' (hopefully you haven't changed those and won't need to reset them).

    You may need to 'Change Owner' and take ownership to be able to set permissions. If so, it is absolutely essential to change it back to TrustedInstaller as soon as you are done. You'll need to use the full name of TrustedInstaller, which is NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller
    Change Owner of File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 10

    These are the standard permissions, as seen on my C:\ drive...

    In my 40 years of being involved with computers, that was one of the dumbest. Maybe ageing is not like wine where it usually improves! Once I got ownership and permissions back in order, I fixed the problem correctly that started it all: C: drive was shared. My C: drive is only used for OS and Apps -- D: drive contains all data.

    Back to Samba: I believe my problem is with Centos/Linux since I am now able to transfer files between my Mac and Windows:

    Not something I've needed to do, but NET SESSION /LIST would seem to fit the bill. You need to run it from an Admin command prompt.
