(of course I'm working through all of this as I type this note, and I
did resolve it, I'm sending it on anyway so that others might benefit).
I am relatively new to samba.
samba-2.2.3a-6 (RedHat 7.3)
Trying to get Amanda to back up an XP client via smb. (XP SP1). (yes,
our environment is a wild mix of hardware and OS - typical consulting
smbclient \\mongo\jparker -U jparker -E -c quit
to which it gets:
selfcheck: samba access error: //mongo/jparker: added interface
ip=192.168.16.10 bcast=192.168.16.255 nmask=255.255.255.0: session setup
failed: SUCCESS - 0: returned 1
Running the same command from the command line - it works fine.
Amcheck works fine against a W2000 machine, same domain, same userid.
Yes, /etc/amandapass is properly set up.
XP works fine viewing samba shares (going the other way) - love the tip
about disabling the XP webclient, that has sped things up.
Before I expend copious quantities of blood, sweat and tears - is this
something that others have run into? Is there a known solution?
NEVER MIND -
Symptom 5. I turned off simple file sharing, rebooted the XP box and
all is well.
