Welcome to Nick's Random Musings

Of course I don't know what I'm doing, what fun would that be?


Fixing samba share errors with external USB disks.

If you are not able to access a file share in samba / SMB externally, the selinux security system may need to be enabled to allow access.

Symptom: Mac cannot connect to an external share.

On the Linux box, you may see an error in /var/log/samba/log.smbd

[2021/07/31 21:36:31.620139,  0] ../../source3/smbd/service.c:798(make_connection_snum)
  make_connection_snum: canonicalize_connect_path failed for service bkup, path /mnt/8tb/backup

The solution as root or with sudo is to enable samba with selinux

setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on

When you see someone by the side of the road / trail with mechanical or health issues:

Don't ask "Do you need Help"

Say: "Do you have everything you need?"

Don't directly explain how to fix something or use a tool, but you can lighten the mood by saying "If you'd like me to mansplain that you just tell me to".

Lots of people are learning or new to on the road fixing stuff. They also may not know their limits or get into dehydration or heat stroke. So keep an eye out to improve their experience.
