I've been obsessed with sharing my desktop files over the home network to all the devices connected to my home router. I finally did it once as I said here. Since then, after several reinstalls and wipes of hard drives, I lost the configuration file for the original system. In short I can't make it work. I've forgotten how I did it exactly.
It turns out that samba and my samba configuration files aren't to blame.
I was doing firewall configuration files with my rkhunter setup. I noticed that I don't have any entry for samba. I added my samba rule in the firewall. I checked my smartphone file manager and there it is my shares automatically appearing and ready for use. No login required.
The firewall rule is:
#ufw allow samba

This is not going away soon. Will you give up this kind of power? To take life without answering for it?

Good night. Oh it's morning. Good morning then.
I retried the previous command. It worked. The resync restarted from where it was interrupted.
#mdadm /dev/md0 --stop
This returns a message that my component devices are BUSY. Are they just trying to ignore me? Not at this ungodly hour, okay. So I have to stop the devices.
#mdadm -assemble --update=resync /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1... /dev/sdd1
Using Ubuntu 16.04 with RAID and Logical Volumes. I am adding Disk Encryption to my skill set. After using the Fedora 24 installer to do all of these in one night (and day) of operating system installation fiesta, I am now trying to finish the same thing using the Ubuntu installer this early morning. There's a power loss of about 30 seconds. It happens in the very early morning. Some power engineer decided to test a new hardware or to pull out an equipment for servicing in the wee hours of the morning while I'm in the middle of resyncing my RAID. I heard the sigh of the fan motors.I checked the status of the RAID - inactive, okay. Then bring it back on, right? I had to continue the resync somehow so I went back to the mdadm man pages.
