Samba Centos root share error - You do not have permission to access in windows

Description:

You have a Centos PC and trying to access the root user's Desktop from a Windows PC. You can see the shared folder in the \Network\Centos_PC_IP, but can't access the folder when you double click.

The pop window arise with a error -

You do not have permission to access in windows \\CENTOS_IP\\root. Contact your network administrator to request access.





Solution: 

First you need to check you samba settings in your centos pc by command -
 
testparm
 
After that you need to do a little change o your /etc/samba/smb.conf file.

Find the folder you shared from root in this file.

It will be like --

        [root]
        path = /root/Desktop
        read only = No 

Change it to -

        [root] 
        force user = root
        force group = root 
        path = /root/Desktop
        read only = No 

 And restart the samba by --

        /sbin/service smb restart
 
And you are done!
