I have just posted this message, forgetting to add the subject....:


I have recently somme difficulties to use samba -M, the answer is:

Cannot resolve name <name>#0x3.

Here is an exemple:

$ smbclient -M falstaff
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Cannot resolve name falstaff#0x3

But if I use -L, the name is resolved:

$ smbclient -L falstaff
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
error connecting to (No route to host)
Error connecting to (No route to host)

The fact, that the computer falstaff is or is not alive, is not relevant, in
both case, with the -M option the answer is the same.

samba-2.2.7a-8.9.0 on linux redhat-9

It used to work with the same configuration, the only thing which may have
change is the samba, nmb ... version, as the linux box is automatically up2dated.

Thank you for any information
