I managed to get flagged unavailable disappear by adding available = yes 
for both [homes] and [transfer]. However, I still can't see the shares 
under the new server. I don't get it, I'm running the same config and 
same version of samba on both machines. The old one don't need available 
= yes. Is there something very trivial that I'm doing wrong?
