Samba server not visible

Post by crik91 »

Hi, I have Samba server configured on my Raspberry Pi 3, I don't touched anything but it seems that not working properly in these days. Also tried to reboot(it start to works but then stops, services are running but not visible by other computers.

Hi,

I see a few additional share entries ;)

Aside from complaints regarding log file permission, Samba appears to be running fine. Does the DietPi share work with IP/hostname?

It was working with both(IP address and hostname) but now it doesn't work with either of them.

I don't know if it may help but every time that I'm doing something and DietPi stop services it stuck on stopping transmission-daemon service. And it's very slow in stopping all services.

I don't know which are the problems.

USB drive may be failing, or insufficient power supply. Check dmesg for any information:

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep sda
Most likely the cause for Transmission hangs aswell.

But the problem is that /dev/sdb power off and I need to turn it off and then on to re-use it. Every time I use /dev/sda it's always on...
