I am trying to configure samba with centos7 to be accessed from windows 10 clients.

log level = 1 i used a previously working smb.conf from the same server after reinstalling centos.

log level = 10
you can actually skip reading this, its level 10 details.

start

i am very new to configuring a linux server, i am familiar with basic linux command ls chmod chown ...,

i followed this article to configure a secure share on wlan network and then tested it with a colleague, everything was working ok except that he did not have execution permission on the share, the path is /home/CompanyFiles/All

so i executed cd /home/

then chmod -R 777 /

then i successfully changed the permissions of the entire centos files and broke the centos installation.

after some googling i decided that reinstalling centos is better than trying to recover from the chmod command and it was feasible since i only installed samba on it, so i copied smb.conf to another machine, reinstalled centos and reinstalled samba, and then i used the old smb.conf.

end

smb.conf:

[global]
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        security = user
        map to guest = Bad User
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        load printers = yes
        cups options = raw
        log level = 4
        #ntlm auth = yes
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        netbios name = adServer

[homes]
        comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S, %D%w%S
        browsable = No
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes
[CompanyFiles]
        path = /home/CompanyFiles
        guest ok = yes
        browsable = no
        writable = yes

[All]
        comment = Company Access
        path = /home/CompanyFiles/All
        guest ok = no
        browsable = yes
        writable = yes
        #access based share enum = yes

the permission of the folders are:

drwxrwx--x. 3 everyad adusers 17 Feb 26 09:32 CompanyFiles

drwxrwx--x. 2 everyad adusers 42 Feb 26 11:43 All

where all users are members of the group adusers.

also the users trying to access are created on smb using smbpasswd -a username

BUT i get the following error when trying to access the server from windows 10

you do not have permission to access server …

please not that i removed samba and reinstalled it with no success.

when making the log level 4 i receive status[NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED], but with lower level i don’t get an error.

searching online always led to selinux stuff, firewall or permissions:

selinux is permissive

firewalld is disabled

and still getting the same issue
