About this Hands-on Lab

This lab is designed to test your skills on troubleshooting a Samba installation. In this lab, you’ll be given a set of permissions for a Samba user and you’ll need to identify why the user can’t perform the permissable tasks.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Check the File System

Check to see if the /public file system was created and mounted.

Mount the File System

If the file system was not mounted, check the configuration for the mount options and mount the /public file system. Ensure the /public file system was mounted as rw and you can access it.

Additional Resources

As the Systems Administrator for Eucalyptus and Lavender, you have been asked to troubleshoot a Samba issue. The share should already be configured and write-enabled, but it isn’t allowing new files to be created.

  • It should be configured on Server1.
  • It should be created under the root directory and named public.
  • It should be a writeable file system.
  • It should be mounted and writeable on Server2.

Good luck!
