Samba Command Line Sharing An Entire Hard Drive

Michael Deats

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I've got an ubuntu 10.04 server I'm using a print/file server (newly setup) - I've managed to install and share the printer using samba.

I've added a second hard drive, just a 160gb hard drive I'd like to store drivers and files on. How do I go about using the smb.conf file to share the entire drive?

I did try the google machine, I just kept getting complex tutorials on using web front ends for samba and mounting samba shares in linux. I mist have used the wrong keywords or something.

EDIT: This is the guide I kept getting :/ http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/in...ces_Using_Samba

It's ok, at least you tried. The one I linked is pretty simple. Let us know if you have any trouble.

Thanks I got it working :) Just struggled to get the share write-able but got it fixed by adding writeable = yes on the smb config and running chmod 777 /path/to/share :)

Thanks for the help.
