    SMB share credentials


    Hi,


    I have a synology unit that is added to the microsoft AD as are all the PCs that access that unit. all the users are members of an AD group that has read/write permissions on a particular folder. When a user tries to access that folder, they get a message "windows cannot access..... you do not have permission....."

    When i add that user's local synology account to the folder, they can access the folder. could it be that the user's computer is trying to access the folder using their local synology account credentials and not the AD credentials? is there a way to check what credentials windows is sending to access the synology SMB share?

    that server doesn't appear in Windows Credentials, but it's not asking for credentials at all, so something is going on



    Thanks,

    Albert

    :)

    Check what credentials is windows sending when accessing an SMB share?

    Hi,

    I have a synology unit that is added to the microsoft AD as are all the PCs that access that unit. all the users are members of an AD group that has read/write permissions on a particular folder. When a user tries to access that folder, they get a message "windows
    cannot access..... you do not have permission....."

    When i add that user's local synology account to the folder, they can access the folder. could it be that the user's computer is trying to access the folder using their local synology account credentials and not the AD credentials? is there a way to check
    what credentials windows is sending to access the synology SMB share?

    Thanks,

    Albert

  3. SMB file servers keep asking for credentials

    I have both Windows 10 SMB and Linux Samba file servers. The share permissions are:

    • browsable (Linux) / turn on file and printer sharing (Windows)
    • guest ok (Linux) / turn off password protected sharing (Windows)
    • Appropriate file system level permissions on both servers (not really matters here)
    Most of the time, using a Windows 10 client to connect to the shared folder is straight forward, just \\my-server and
    it is fine. But sometimes, it keep asking for credentials for unknown reason.


    SMB share credentials 83de1903-dd22-4fab-b664-a2570faccf3d?upload=true.png


    It won't connect if I leave all fields blank. Sometimes I need to type a random user account with a blank password, and sometimes both a random account plus a random password to pass that stupid prompt. Linux
    clients do not suffer from that issue, at least by using smb://my-server on Ubuntu's Nautilus and select Connect anonymously.

    To make the problem worse, let's say I have a shared printer on the server. After a client provides a random user + password, he can connect to the server and use the shared printer. After a few days, he suddenly
    cannot print using the previously added printer, until he tries to connect and provides a random user + password again (the printer does not need to be re-added). Looks like the junk user + password time out after a few days (even if you do check Remember
    my credentials
    ).

    The issue occurs randomly. What could be the cause of the problem?
