    Net Use

    Have an odd problem, what im trying to do is relatively simple but it just doesnt want to play. When I use a network boot disk and try to net use to my ubuntu server it give me 'Error 53: The Computer Name specified in the Network path cannot be located.' I know the path exists because I can use the same command in windows to map to it so im not sure why it wont map it when using a network boot disk.

    Re: Net Use

    Are you trying to map it via name or ip address?

    Re: Net Use

    Name ie

    Code:
    net use z: \\servername\share
    Did try ip address too for good measure but the result is the same.

    Re: Net Use

    I assume that pinging the address works?

    Re: Net Use

    Yes pinging works both for ip address and servername.

    @Geoff: If it is a DNS Issue, what do i do? Ive had a look and there's a Host record for the server with no conflicting info as far as i know. What should i be looking for? Also why can I map the drive in xp but not in dos.

    Re: Net Use

    Does the share require any authentication and if so, is the DOS disk supplying it correctly?

    Is your /etc/resolve.conf setup correctly?

    Also why can I map the drive in xp but not in dos.
    Dos?

    Re: Net Use

    @webman: Yes (the ubuntu server is connected to the domain as a member server using samba) and it doesnt get that far (best i can tell)

    @geoff: resolve.conf? DNS is on Windows 2003 (sorry if i didnt mention it b4). and yes DOS.. its a DOS Network Bootdisk.

    resolve.conf is the file that you enter the dhcp servers that you use.

    So enter the ip address of the Windows 2003 dns server.

    Only really need if you don't use dhcp on this box.

    Re: Net Use

    Ah yes remember now but i fail to see how setting this will help with my client (Dos client) to map to the Ubuntu server as its the client that cant connect to the server not the other way round. Well i set it anyway and its still dont work.

    Re: Net Use

    Oh I see. I thought you were trying to map from the Ubuntu machine.

    Simple answer now anyway, you'll have to run WINS.

    Re: Net Use

    I think dos needs netbios ? (apologies if this is not the case, its been a long time)
    do you have
    Code:
    disable netbios = yes
    in your smb.conf ?

    Re: Net Use

    @Geoff: Thanks for that, ive now got the client to resolve to the share but now guess what... i have access issues. Dos Error 5 and in samba log states:

    Code:
    [2007/01/17 10:24:03, 0] auth/pampass.c:smb_pam_account(573)
      smb_pam_account: PAM: UNKNOWN PAM ERROR (9) during Account Management for User: Domain\user
    [2007/01/17 10:24:03, 0] auth/pampass.c:smb_pam_accountcheck(781)
      smb_pam_accountcheck: PAM: Account Validation Failed - Rejecting User Domain\user!
    Funny I didnt think you would get error messages that dont actually tell you what the error is in linux. Im guessing theres a config error regarding pam but what i have no idea. BTW i get the same error if i try and connect using an ip address instead of host name in xp ie

    Code:
    \\1.2.3.4\Data
    @CyberNerd: No thats not configured but thanks anyway.

    What is your samba servers security model?
