I have been a bit divorced from Samba for a while and am stumped by a
recently seen issue.

My Samba server (V4.8.3) is Centos 7 and the remote clients are
windoze boxes at the other end of a VPN (OpenVPN). At some point in
"recent" history, access to shares on the Centos server started to
fail with password failures. The reason seems to be associated with
user mapping. (See log fragment below).

I have added entries to smbusers trying to map the remote user to
local user simon without success.

There is no windoze domain server involved.

The clients can FTP to the server and retrieve emails via IMAP.

What am I missing?

By default NTLMv1 is now turned off, could this be your problem ?, try
(as a test) adding 'ntlm auth = yes' to your smb.conf and
reload/restart Samba.

If this doesn't work, can you please post your smb.conf and tells us
what the Windows machines are.


There is no ntlm auth entry in smb.conf (included below) but I don't think the NTLM setting is the cause as I can use smbclient to successfully login as user simon and get the following log fragment:

No smbuser entry is required for this combination so it looks as if the remote Windows workgroup/domain is not being handled.

The remote client involved is running W10 Professional 64-bit.
