Issues with server after installing Samba

Does anybody have experience using Samba on a Ubuntu 16.04 server running Rapidminer Server 9.0?

I installed it earlier to allow sharing data folders with my windows environment, and while all worked out fine server / sharing wise I was no longer able to save data to disc anymore from within Rapidminer. I have a few processes using the save to excel operator, and all of them failed because I no longer had the right to do so, even if the folders were completely open. I've tried changing folders, owners, access rights and so on, but it didn't make a difference at all.

Just stopping Samba did not make a difference either, I had to completely remove it before I was able to save data again on my local (server) disk. 

Any advice is welcome.

    Hi @kayman,

    Drop me a line, I have experience installing Samba for sharing environments. We can diagnose this together.

    Sorry for this not being a proper solution, but I will probably need the configuration files and look at sensitive information.

    All the best,

    Thanks Rodrigo, I'll need to allocate some time first to start things over again, I'll share my findings then
