  • Samba not running on VB2.5 Fedora 25

    Hi

    I recently upgraded to VB 2.5 and everything working correctly except for Samba which wont start on the VB box, therefore I cant see the shares on Windows

    I have tried a number of solutions from the web but just cant get it running

    Any ideas much appreciated

    are you sure its the VB that doesn't have SAMBA? In my case (VB 2.5) I can no longer access via windows network share because my current version of windows no longer allows connections via SAMBA 1.0. And the VB has only SAMBA 1.0.

      Fedora 25 reached End of Life on December 12, 2017. After that date there were no subsequent updates to any packages. Andrew maintains a frozen Fedora 25 repository but nothing is updated within that. Do a Google search on how many security-critical bugs have been found in SMB/Samba since then. This is one of the reasons running on a no-longer-supported platform is not advisable.
