Sharing folders in Caja? SOLVED!!

Post by LennartL » Sun Aug 14, 2016 6:57 am

Why do I get this message when I try to share folders in the Caja?

'Net user data' Returned error 255 net usershare add: can not convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Unexpected information received.
I have LinuxMint 17.3 Mate

The most likely suspect is a misconfigured parameter in smb.conf.

Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf as root:

Code: Select all

gksu pluma /etc/samba/smb.conf
Look for the following line:
encrypt passwords = no
Change no to yes:
encrypt passwords = yes
Then restart smbd:

Code: Select all

sudo service smbd restart
