I would like my SMB user allow to read ALL files in / and subdirs.
On Ubuntu I did this user "force user = root" in /etc/samba/smb.conf.
So I tried adding "option force user = root" to the share /, but it did not work.
Any ideas how i can allow my SMB user to read all files.
Must I use acl? I would prefer to edit /etc/config/samba.
Just played a little around...
There is /etc/samba/smb.conf and /etc/config/samba.
Why? The configfile /etc/samba/smb.conf was like a normal samba configfile. But I guess a played a little to much... My Windows notebook could no acess any share anymore smile
So for today I removed samba from the router and will do a clean setup tomorrow, using only /etc/samba/smb.conf.
OK installed only samba server.
When I edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and /etc/config/samba is default all my changes done to /etc/samba/smb.conf will be deleted. OK look like a OpenWRT thing... to get a smb.conf with the files from /etc/config/samba, right?
So I edit the template. And what a surprise the changed there will last! yeah
But I still cant access and files on "/", I only see them. If I want cd into /etc/ Windows tells me that I have no right to do so and I should ask my admin
This is my config now, from /etc/samba/smb.conf.
netbios name = Lede
display charset = UTF-8
interfaces = lo br-lan
server string = Lede
unix charset = UTF-8
workgroup = WORKGROUP
bind interfaces only = yes
deadtime = 30
enable core files = no
# invalid users = root
local master = no
map to guest = Bad User
max protocol = SMB2
min receivefile size = 16384
null passwords = yes
passdb backend = smbpasswd
security = user
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
use sendfile = yes
path = /
browsable = yes
read only = yes
valid users = skafan
force user = root
comment = Home Directories
browsable = no
read only = no
create mode = 0750
Hi, did you be able to access / as samba share with root login?
I'm in trouble as you, needing to access whole filesystem via samba.
In other not openwrt Linux distro running samba 3.6 it was just simple but now I can't find any option useful to fill in smb.conf root share.
I can just get access in / directory but not any other directory above, receiving an access denied.
Enable core files = yes
Admin users = root
Administrative share = yes
And others but unsuccessfully.
I'll try 'force user = root' as you suggested...
Just for info with samba 4 works... but not in samba 3.6.
Thanks to all in advance
