unRAID server not accepting SAMBA connections

Recommended Posts

So I rebooted my unRAID server to install some fans and when I booted back up, the other computers are no longer able to connect to the Samba shares. This is affecting both Mac and PC computers.

  • I can ping the sever name "unRAID".
  • I can ping the IP address.
  • I can connect to the server via the web address.
  • I can connect to the AFP shares from Mac clients.


I just can't connect to the server via Windows Explorer/Finder. Finder just states "connection failed." If I try to use Connect to Server on mac, I get "The file server will not allow any additional users to log on. Try to connect again later"


Windows explorer says "Windows cannot access //UNRAID"  If I diagnose the problem, it says "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"


I have a pretty default setup for the most part. I use Workgroup settings. I use a local master (but not using it doesn't fix it).


Anyone else have this problem??? No idea why the reboot would have created such havok...
