Is there a known browsing problem for Samba 2.0.6 under Solaris 2.5.1?
Situation: An Ultra-10 running Solaris 2.5.1 is logon server for a number of win98-clients on a single subnet and runs Samba 2.0.6. Everything works fine, except browsing. The server becomes local- and domain masterbroser, enforces an election and succesfully becomes master.
The problem is that nobody but admin users get a browse list from the server:
smbclient -L server
shows only the shares but no computers in the workgroup or list of workgroups.
smbclient -L server -U MrUser
also shows only the shares. (MrUser is a normal non-guest user). While
smbclient -L server -U MrSuperman
(where MrSuperman is an admin user) shows the shares and all the computers in the workgroup and all the workgroups (the normal behaviour)
Excerpt from smb.conf:
local master = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65
guest user = nobody
interfaces = <OURNET>/<OURNETMASK> 127.0.0.1/8
hosts allow = <SOME HOSTS> 127.
workgroup = research
A nearly equivalent setup on a Linux-box works just perfectly. Also, changing guest user into any other normal user account does not work?
