Updated firmware and Windows Shares no longer connect

I upgraded my fireware two weeks ago then all my Windows Machines can no longer access the Samba shares.

I put in a support ticket and got no replies, noticed the new firmware update earlier this week, updated and still having the same issues.

The only way I seam to be able to access any information is by creating FTP shares. This is not acceptable as I purchased this to be a NAS storage for my Windows Machines.

I created a second support ticket but still would like to know how to diagnoise and fix the problem.

I see that samba daemon is running but no machine can connect to any shares.

Just checked, Shares no longer working on OSX machines as well.

Log into the web interface and reboot the EX2, thi should solve the issue.

Logged in, Restarted… Still having the problems.

Can connect to the web interface and connect to FTP. Just cannot connect for any Windows or OSX share.

Sounds like authentication problems; have you changed user passwords or swicthed shares from public to private? The firmware update didn’t changed anything related to Samba, so if Samba was working prior to the update, Samba works the same after applying the firmware update.

Please post the error message you are receiving withi Windows and/or Mac.

I was using Public Shares to work with my OSx Machine and the families comptuers.

I had only one private share which was used on my main machine.

If password is required now should I be using NET USE to setup my shares instead of the Windows Networking Interface?

There is no difference between using NET USE command line or Windows “Map network drive…” dialogue - if there are authentication problems, you will get an error on both. if there is an error popping up, please share the error message.

WOW, I haven’t seen this error for a long time. Let’s fire up the truck then :sunglasses:
This “semaphore” is mostly bound to misleading network communication/configuration and - to be honest - it’s hard to solve. Your thread is related to EX2, so I think it is an EX2, correct? This would avoid port trunking issues on the NAS itself.

Not yet relevant for us but here you can read a massive search-and-solve-thread about this semaphore stuff:
https://communities.vmware.com/thread/59845?start=45&tstart=0

Back to our thread:
How many network cards are in your Windows PC? More than one? If you have more than one NIC, please paste the ipconfig/all from your machine.

Have you tried to use the IP-address instead of the hostname; so
net use m: \\\192.168.0.2\Public
instead of \\BIGFD (BTW: you have to set three \ in a row as two of them are reserved HTML code :wink: )

If IP address usage would work, then we can focus on DNS problems. I’ll wait for your report.

Hey, Thank you for the help. I’m going to check out your links shortly. I have a computer with only one NIC if you rather me do that but here is the commands

Thanks for reply, your connection is Wifi only. Have you activated the “AP isolation” or “Privacy support” in your access point? This would block all traffic from Wifi into your cabled network but only allow traffic to the internet.

Edit: Don’t use three \ for the net use command, only two - sorry, my fault due to the glitching bug here in the forum!

net use m: \\ 192.168.0.2\Public

and remove the blank between the second \ and the 1: net use m: \\192.168.0.2\Public

I’m using two … I just dont’ understand the BB system yet to make it display correctly. Checking the router now.

[ ] Enable Wireless Isolation <-- that’s unchecked

In the Samba log I’m seeing lots of Unknown server error , ignoring, Server Exit. Not sure what to make of it as I only understand the basic configuration of Samba machines.

Two AP’s in Roaming mode? do they have same net mask and same subnet?

First check, if possible, cabled connection from your Windows PC to the NAS - i guess it will work…
Then check Wifi connection with only one AP up and then, at the end, both APs up.

Don’t configure smb.conf via command line, use the web interface of the My Cloud.

I turned off WiFi and connected directly to the Router with a wired connection

Tried \\192 <-- still can’t get this to format right LOL

C:\Users\Lucas>net use n: \\\192.168.0.2\public

and the samba log will start connecting

and command line reports

System error 64 has occurred.

The specified network name is no longer available.

“The specified network name is no longer available” but the My Cloud is stll shown in Network environment, right?

If you now right click the My Cloud icon shown in Network -> Storage and then “Open” or “Open interface”, what happens?

If I open under Media player device it brings up Windows Media player. It loads my playble files and I can play media.

If i click open from Storage depending on PC it will hang or open the web interface.

To answer your question, Yes the device still stays visible in the Network GUI.

Good news, I got a reply and a support tech been assigned to me.

They mentioned something about having to remote into my computer. Little nervous because I don’t have a backup of my WD My Cloud and don’t want to loss data.

I wanted to return to this,

There is a feature in Windows that Disables the shares.

There is a Group Policy that needs to be toggled and depending on your Windows Install could be Disabled by default.

Open gpedit go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Lanman Workstation > Enabled insecure guest logons.

Toggle this feature to “Enabled” and the Wd My Cloud shares will work again.
