    Build 10041 Samba doesn't show C drive properly !!!!


    Hi there

    3 Linux servers with different distros seem to be unable to read the C drive directory properly on a new Windows 10041 (Real) machine.

    Seems to be NO problem in accessing the other shared drives on the computer. This problem only seems to be when SAMBA wants to access the computer (Windows to Windows works OK even a windows 10 VM on the Linux HOST to a real W10 machine).

    Cheers

    SAMBA Issue?


    It could be a SAMBA issue.

    The Linux Mint 17.1 install on my laptop does something similar.
    I have 12 shared folders (NTFS) on my Windows 7 desktop.

    The only shared folder the laptop can see is the one with "read and write" set on it.
    The other 11 "read only" folders do not appear in the file browser.

    My friend's Arch Linux system can see and access all the folders (with the correct restrictions).

    Luckily I can use the W7 install on the laptop to transfer files to my W7 install on my desktop (or vice versa).

    I have no idea what is happening and I can't even come up with a plausible hypothesis.

    It's a surprise that a linux distro is having that issue. I tested samba sharing between 10041 and the Ras-Pi 2 and everything seems to be fine. Raspberry Pi can see all C folders including hidden folders.

    Even permissions are set correctly. I tried copying a file from Windows C folder to Ras-Pi desktop and everything is okay.

    Hi there

    On my ANDROID phone I can access all W10 shared folders too -- the phone reports an SMB:// IP address of windows. (Android 5.0) using EZ-File explorer from google play store.

    Could be something with Samba -- it's not a mega issue as most of my shared folders are not on the "C" drive.

    It only happens with W10 though -- other windows releases work perfectly.

    A get around though

    1) Get the IP address of the Windows machine --say 192.168.1.105
    2) create a directory on your Linux system /mnt/winc
    3) mount the windows disk as root or sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.105/C /mnt/winc

    You'll be prompted for your password for the windows share

    Then it's fine the winc directory has all the files. You might need to set to RW if you want to write to the shares.

    I'll mess around and see if some sort of Host resolution works too --I don't want to rely on specific IP addresses - but it works for the moment.

    Cheers

    Thanks jimbo45.


    I'll test it out later (I'm behind schedule on a bunch of projects).
