How To Install and Configure SAMBA Server on RHEL 6

Installation

Configuration

The default configuration works just fine.

Security

Having 'security = user' means we need a UNIX account. Lets create one.

And set samba password for account.

Firewall

Test

Now lets test it from a remote client. First lets list all shares on host.

And to mount it.

Finally lets test to write to winuser1 home directory.

This did not go well. The missing configuration is SELinux.

SELinux

On the SAMBA server, run the following command, if you want to share home directories via samba.

Now lets get back to client and un mount and the remount and write and read and that should be successful.
