Can't access share with username & password

? 41, as expensive as the pi itself
? 14,-
I could purchase this, but I'm about to give up.
All I wanted is to create a share in my pi, and didn't expect it would be so hard. I have some knowledge of Linux left, as I followed a course in SCO Unix years ago. But this is so bloody difficult, and due to the relation between Windows and Linux.
I use the pi as a pi hole in our LAN and that works well. Tried to create a share just to see how it works. No luck.

You do have to be prepared to dig about in the logs to identify problems (sometimes you do for windows too)
Ideally you want to leave a "tail -f" command running, for the relevant log file, while you are trying to login to the pi from windows.

Give it a last chance. I ordered it.

Have you tried the "net use" command from the Windows command line?
net use z: \\raspberrypiname\sharename /user:linuxusername /persistent:yes linuxuserpassword
where z is a spare drive letter in windows
What message do you get output?

OK, so that Samba should be able to find and use the user map.
Yes -which is why less is the final item in that pipeline - it has good searching capabilities. Read the output from "man less" if you don't know how to use therm.
...and none of the messages were output by smbd or nmbd - I did say that you may have to look at other log files.
As it happens, my recent Buster upgrade install pulled in Samba (which I didn't want) and it turns out that by default it puts Samba logs in the
/var/log/samba
directory, so the place to look for error explanations is in the logs in that directory. What errors were reported there the last time you tried to start and/or connect to a Samba share?

[C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCCLE14x64]net use s: \\raspberrypi\pishare /user:pi /persistent:yes xyz System error 1326 has occurred.
The user name or password is incorrect.
I know there is a user "pi" on the pi, and I know the password is correct.
Tried this as well: [C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCCLE14x64]net use s: \\raspberrypi\pishare /user:'Fokke Nauta' /persistent:yes xyz This resulted in an error message, showing me the syntax.

This normally means a conflict in date/time. Are you sure the date and time are the same on RaspberryPi and Windows machine?
Note: /user:"Fokke Nauta" will never work.

Are both users (the system user and the samba user) valid? See my text above.
I will try to help you without reading every post in this thread. I have pasted your smb.conf part with the share. I have added a user pi with adduser pi.
sudo adduser pi
I have controlled the entry by typing grep pi /etc/passwd:
sudo grep pi /etc/passwd pi:x:1002:1002:,,,:/home/pi:/bin/bash
Then I added a samba user by typing
sudo smbpasswd -a pi
I controlled this with
sudo pdbedit -L -v pi
I then made the share dir with
sudo mkdir /home/pi
Now the user pi shall have access to it
sudo chown pi:pi /home/pi
Check with
ls -la /home
drwxr-xr-x 2 pi pi 4096 Jul 26 14:28 pi/

Now go to the Windows machine and open a command shell and type
net view \\yourlinuxmachine
it should be
pishare Platte Pi Shared Folder
in it.
Now use the following command to share the share in Windows with the letter S
net use s: \\yourlinuxmachine\pishare /user:pi /persistent:no pipass
That works all in my environment: linux ubuntu, samba V 4.10.0, Windows 10 Ver 1809.
Hope it helps!!!

There is a time difference from approx. 3 seconds. We have a time server in our LAN. Should I sync the pi with this server? And if so, how would I manage that?
I know, I used 'Fokke Nauta'

I did that, but then I time sync all systems on my LAN individually to avoid any dependencies on local systems that may not always be running.
My RPi uses ntpd as its local time source. Its configured to use my choice external of timesource pools to synchronise with rather than using the same one as all other RPi owners. Timesource poools are pre-clustered groups of time sources. Its probably easier to sync with one of them them than to build your own list of individual time sources, but you're free to choose your own selection of time sources.

That Seneca bloke knew what he was talking about. I regard religion (of any flavour) as an unfortunate affliction that I am glad I don't suffer from, and label it in my mind as "important only if true". On the other hand, I accept that there *may* be something in it that I don't understand, so I accept that some people are predisposed to "believe" and "have faith" and feel the need to "worship". despite the absence of proof. They have a right to feel the way they do, but they do not have the right to foist those opinions on non-believers by knocking on people's front doors and trying to "sell" they religion to me.

Religion has utility and works, true or not.
Just like science.
Unlike science, it doesnt foretell te future .

have you tried setting the password (temporarily) to a very "plain" one, very short, no weird characters etc?

We have a local NTP time server on the server in our LAN. It get's the time from some Dutch sites, and it spreads it around in our LAN. Should I get the Pi to listen to this NTP server? If so, how would I do that?
