Windows 7: Samba invalid user

26 Nov 2009   #1

Samba invalid user

I am trying to access a samba share from windows 7. The samba version is 3.3.3 on 7.2, The samba daemons are running and I can see the server in my Network Places on the Windows client. When I try to login using the username spacebizall and password (the same as the account on the server) I receive an "unknown username or password" error. I installed the registry patch here Windows7 - SambaWiki. Attached are the samba log file and config. Test is the share I am trying to connect to.

Also one of the packets caught my attention, it appears as if my username being sent is including my hostname for some reason:
28    0.491330   SMB    Session Setup AndX Request, NTLMSSP_AUTH, User: MICKEY-PC\spacebizall

Here is a jpeg showing my network layout and the error I am getting as well as some other useful info. I tried to also attach a wireshark packet dump of the time between trying to login and receiving the error but I cant upload pcap files, if you would find that useful I can email it to you.

In the password dialog box try using the Samba hostname before the backslash of your username, e.g. from your example diagram:\spacebizall
