Samba config for windows server

Hi all,

I'm using solaris 10 with latest patches applied. I'm using samba to make a directory called /dir1 available from a windows 2003 server.

If I do a 'Map network drive' on win 2003 server, I get the error:
The specified network is no longer available

In the samba-log under /var/adm/, I get the error:
auth/auth_server.c:100(server_cryptkey) password server not available

If I do a 'Map network drive' on win 7 (my laptop), here I'm able to see the share /dir1.

Please suggest what may be causing the issue...

My smb.conf file is as follows:
workgroup = testw1
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/adm/samba_log.%m
security = SHARE
comment = BO
path = /dir1
force user = dir1usr
force group = gd1
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

Issue got resolved.
Security settings under Local Policy Settings were causing this problem. I undid the settings and then tested. It was successful.

samba_selinux(8)					Samba Selinux Policy documentation					  samba_selinux(8)

samba_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for Samba DESCRIPTION
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the Samba server via flexible mandatory access control. FILE_CONTEXTS SELinux requires files to have an extended attribute to define the file type. Policy governs the access daemons have to these files. If you want to share files other than home directories, those files must be labeled samba_share_t. So if you created a special directory /var/eng, you would need to label the directory with the chcon tool. chcon -t samba_share_t /var/eng To make this change permanent (survive a relabel), use the semanage command to add the change to file context configuration: semanage fcontext -a -t samba_share_t "/var/eng(/.*)?" This command adds the following entry to /etc/selinux/POLICYTYPE/contexts/files/file_contexts.local: /var/eng(/.*)? system_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 Run the restorecon command to apply the changes: restorecon -R -v /var/eng/ SHARING FILES
If you want to share files with multiple domains (Apache, FTP, rsync, Samba), you can set a file context of public_content_t and pub- lic_content_rw_t. These context allow any of the above domains to read the content. If you want a particular domain to write to the pub- lic_content_rw_t domain, you must set the appropriate boolean. allow_DOMAIN_anon_write. So for samba you would execute: setsebool -P allow_smbd_anon_write=1 BOOLEANS
SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. So by default SELinux policy turns off SELinux sharing of home directories and the use of Samba shares from a remote machine as a home directory. If you are setting up this machine as a Samba server and wish to share the home directories, you need to set the samba_enable_home_dirs boolean. setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs 1 If you want to use a remote Samba server for the home directories on this machine, you must set the use_samba_home_dirs boolean. setsebool -P use_samba_home_dirs 1 system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
